4' Dir. Kim Spierenburg Sc. Kim Spierenburg
Heartbeat is an ode to (new) life and its creation, the experience of womanhood, moving on and the regenerative power of violin tones.
Heartbeat is an ode to (new) life. Inspired by the sound of the violin that revives me. Heartbeat is about moving on and how making music is precious and should be cherished. As a disabled artist, I have firsthand knowledge of the fragility of life. As a female artist, I intuitively express the themes of womanhood, the experience of womanhood, birth and the creation of life in this film. I value making music and elevating life from the grey nothingness and pain. My creative process has always been driven by colors, forms and images. Inspired by my classical roots with Heartbeat I feel that I’ve managed to consolidate and interlace the audiovisual aspects of my work for the first time. I feel my narratives have finally merged into a complete story. This experimental short film was created using mixed digital methods and image generation technologies.
