To The King of Wolves is a freely inspired love-film response to Gregory Colbert’s film “Ashes and Snow”; – where a lover writes after a whole year of silence to declare his feelings.

In “To The King of Wolves”, a short film directed by Katherina Tsirakis and Rosanna Bach, the love letter is responded to and we find out how Elisa received the silence as well as the letters. She travels to forget, but in this attempt, she remembers. Her solitude and uncertainty gave way to an encounter with her inner self. In this encounter, placed in the U.S.’s vast and open midwest, the experimental dance film journeys through Elisa’s mythical quest to find a more intimate dialogue with her intuition.

An exercise that dialogues between form, narrative, and motion in an attempt to communicate through symbols the human spiritual drama of a young female.
