A Visual Poem by Eva Depoorter

A Still from the Film

The Widow dives into themes of love and longing with a dark and colorful visual style that sets itself apart with a chaotic, kinetic vision. Eva Depoorter combines a series of vivid emotional vignettes to tunnel into the core of being in love, being alone, and simply being.

With a haunting score by Giovanni Spinelli, the film combines powerful imagery with poetic narration to pull the audience into a trance. Sensual and strange, the film’s low-fi camera work adds to an overall feeling of peeking behind closed doors at the raw emotions we all hide. Evocative and enigmatic, widow is a short glimpse into a sad, beautiful world.

Depoorter uses imagery to capture emotion.
