With latest single “Swallow”, Monolink reveals a painful encounter and the subsequent loss which occurs in that place between dreams, thoughts, and reality. Director duo APESFRAMED takes “Swallow” that one step further by capturing the inner dialogue of a woman, played by fellow Austrian actress Alma Hasun, on 16mm and 8mm film.
Feeling suffocated by the world around her, our lead protagonist is flooded by memories of her former wild-child days. In retaliation of her monotonous daily routine, she dyes her hair a ferocious red and takes to the road.
“Like the dark swallows the light, you have to spit yourself back out… Everything changes, just spit yourself back out”
Written and directed by Nicola and guided with the support of Martyna and long collaborator Jakob Carl Sauer (cinematographer), “Swallow” was shot like a true road-movie on various locations in Austria, Germany, and Denmark.
