Spring

Short film inspired by the Painting Ophelia by John Everett Millais, 1851.

There, on the pendent boughs her coronet weeds
Clambering to hang, an envious sliver broke;
When down her weedy trophies and herself
Fell in the weeping brook. Her clothes spread wide,
And, mermaid-like, awhile they bore her up;
Which time she chanted snatches of old tunes,
As one incapable of her own distress,
Or like a creature native and indued
Unto that element; but long it could not be
Till that her garments, heavy with their drink,
Pull’d the poor wretch from her melodious lay
To muddy death.
-Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Act IV, Scene vii

Music: Recomposed by Max Richter: Vivaldi, The Four Seasons
