The latest collaboration between French composer Pascal Gaigne and director Eduardo Chapero-Jackson (after the film Verbo) is this sensitive documentary about the poetry of Antonio Machado.
As her final exam, Sira, a young dance-conservatory student, has to prepare a program about the legacy of Spanish poet Machado. The film delves into the life and work of the poet, featuring a cinematic blend of documentary and fiction. Biographical documentary research and the search for life experience of the Machado poems coexist in Subtle Worlds. Not a trip into the past, the film connects the poet with our time.
Pascal Gaigne provides a surprisingly peaceful and spiritual score utilizing contemporary forms and written entirely for electronic ensemble. Los Mundos Sutiles is one of Gaigne’s most sincere, special and personal works.
