Synopsis

Elegy tells a story of a lost soul trapped in a lift of a luxury hotel, invisible and disconnected from the living except for Bianca, the hotel’s room maid. Bianca can’t get over the loss of her tragically deceased love and believes that the lights’ flickering, and occasional breakdowns of the lift are the doing of her beloved who communicates with her. But there is no room for a dysfunctional lift in a five-star hotel and it must be replaced. The soul anguishes about the inevitable outcome....

Director’s Statement

Elegy is my humble and fragile desire to share a very personal obsession. Once evaporated from the flesh and aspiring to rest in peace, a soul happens to be trapped among the living. It feels confused, lost and afraid, without even knowing where its redemption might come from. Perhaps this soul is mine. Maybe yours. Perhaps the quintessence of what we are.
