The Orielles directorial debut short ‘La Vita Olistica’

directed by Esme Hand-Halford & Sidonie Hand-Halford

Run time 32″

+ Q&A


A wandering camera that finds itself immersed within a liminal space of a warehouse encounters a band performing in session. The score and visuals alike are segmented by the three motifs contained within the film, appearing chronologically as ‘Time’, ‘Space’ and ‘Place’. Through each of these three ‘chapters’ the film, prompted by the audio-visual experience, provides differing articulations of embodiment and ways to explore our, often disregarded, phenomenal being.


Esme Hand-Halford & Sidonie Hand-Halford direct their debut film, produced by Jessica Wheeler and shot by Yohan Reitan.

Collaborating artists include; Raz Ullah, Neelam Khan Vela, William Fry and Henry Wade.

With an original score by The Orielles and additional performance by Emily Zurowski.

La Vita Olistica was supported by [PIAS]
