2017 Films: Selva Obscura

Selva Obscura by Elizabeth Wadium
Wisconsin (Wisconsin Premiere)

Running Time: 5 minutes
Screening Time: 
Saturday, September 9th 4:30PM

In Selva Obscura, director Elizabeth Wadium marries her two loves--film and music--to reflect on the uncertainty and longing in a life's journey.

Director Statement

Selva Obscura is a blend between a silent film and a mood piece, somewhat similar to a music video. However, unlike a music video, the music was composed by the director after the first rough cut of the footage, like a traditional film score. 

The film is largely a metaphor for a quarter-life crisis and both the scenery and the title draw inspiration from the first stanzas of Dante's Inferno.
