An aesthetic approach inspired by painting
Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010

Elisa K focuses on a ten-year- old girl who is raped and then forgets about it. Her li-fe carries on as normal until fourteen years, four months and a few days later everything falls apart. The film, like the book by Lolita Bosch that it is based on, is a well documented study of the after-affects of being raped as a child.

Just like the book the film is structured in two parts around the turning point in Elisa’s life. In each part co-directors Jordi Cadena and Judith Colell have taken an aesthetic approach inspired by painting: the first part in black and white with references to Hammerschoi, while the second has references to Lucian Freud and Egon Schiele.
