Trailer from the test shoot of the short film Sentiment (shot July 2020 in Branické divadlo)


Echo is a 12-minute short musical film in pre-production based on the monodrama Sentiment for unaccompanied soprano, composed by Juliana Hall to a text by Caitlin Vincent. Echo will be a visually extravagant, surreal, absurdist and at times humorously self-ironic piece of self-revelation which asks the question: “What is a performer without an audience?” This question has taken on a new sense of urgency with the recent COVID-19 pandemic.

Tentative release: 2023
