Beneath is a short film that uses the language of dance, voice and music to penetrate this theme in an experimental form. Beneath doesn't tell one story, but many layered stories. It offers no conclusion as to what lies under the surface of human relationships, but presents many realities made of memories that fade and deform; memories that at each present moment are transformed and modified according to the current situation. In Beneath the memory of the past and the desire for what should be, permeate and alternate in a series of characters and dances in a noir and gloomy, ethereal and illusory atmosphere.
