The Prick of the Spindle

classical music video
collaboration with Avant Projekts

In our classical music video reimagination of Charles Perrault's Sleeping Beauty, Aurora pricks her finger and falls under the witch's curse. Soon she is awakened by True Love's Kiss, and she and the prince plan to be married. But Aurora is still haunted by the witch's spell. In the end she defeats the witch and marries the prince to live happily ever after.
