Taisia Deeva explores the battle lines between religion and freedom of expression in the dramatic video for Lithuanian DJ/producer Dynoro.
Paul Kalkbrenner 'Part Twelve' by Taisia Deeva
Taisia Deeva directs a terrifying tale of blind faith in her stunning video for German producer Paul Kalkbrenner's Part Twelve.
In the video, we are witnessing the life of a totalitarian community living in an isolated place after the death of their patriarch. While all the male members are allowed to leave the place and build a new life, female members are expected to commit a collective suicide in order to join their leader journey in the afterlife.
This is an engrossing study of character and human behaviour, and the grim impact of the phenomenon of the religious cult. Without referencing an historical case, Deeva makes her community, and its hierarchy, eminently believable.
Shot in Kiev, Deeva and DoP Daniel Obradovic utilises the cast, location with its boundless scenery, abundant daylight with great skill, to create a cinematic flavour that matches the concept perfectly.
