Voice Of Shade

Synopsis

Shut Your Eyes, loosely based on the play of the same name, is about a stormy couple in real life who come back together to make a film where, try as they might, they can't avoid falling into their old traps. A naked couple spinning their ritualized vocal and physical dialogue in a loft reserved for their rituals. A black comedy about the animal poetry of seduction and sexuality. About the fantasies the couple makes real or the reality they make into fantasy. About the jagged borderlines between film - fiction and documentary, theater, dance and poetry. Shut Your Eyes was filmed in twelve long-take scenes with one HD camera in Istanbul during Summer 2008. http://www.voiceofshade.net/shutyoureyes/
