DO NOT SING TO ME, MY BEAUTY is an artistic music video in which film and classical music are reinforcing each other. The music video revolves around the genesis of a young woman empowered by the music ‘Ne poj krasavica pri mne’, from the composer Sergei Rachmaninoff. In this song she expresses the painful and beautiful memories of the hidden sides of her personality.
Inspired by the psychology of Carl Gustav Jung, this music video shows the difference between the persona and the shadow. The mask for the outside world and the hidden aspect of the personality are reflected in a melancholic way through a wealth of water, green leaves, red hair and a pale skin.
DO NOT SING TO ME, MY BEAUTY is supported by the AFK (Amsterdam Fund for the Arts).
Filmed on location in Auchmithie (Scotland) and Halfweg (The Netherlands).
