See scenes from the film MALTA KANO, TX at the DWDT Book Launch!

MALTA KANO, TX is a film by Dominic Walsh and Belgian artist Frédérique de Montblanc and features Japanese ballerina Hana Sakai and Domenico Luciano.  The film premiered at the Brussels Short Film Festival in April 2015 and was an official selection at the Festival Tous Courts Aix-en-Provence, France International Film Festival in November 2015.

Check out the trailer:

MALTA KANO, TX tells the story of a couple in crisis where the husband and wife seem to be unable to tame each other anymore.  Through gesture and dance, the film explores the tragic yet beautiful metamorphosis one undergoes in the quest to preserve love.

"Frédérique and her team, through the medium of film, have successfully captured the dreamlike essence of my work."   – Dominic Walsh

Director of Photography: Romain Ferrand, Music Composition: Loup Mormont.  Produced by Eklektik Productions in collaboration with DWDT.

The DWDT Book features stills from the film:
