By heart, For Dante
(Napamet, za Dantea) 25’, shot on Hi 8, transferred to DVD
single screen video installation, Nicole Hewitt, 2005
Direction, editing, sound edit, camera, production Nicole Hewitt
Featuring: Dante and Igor Pavlica
During a week in Momiano, a tiny town in Istria on the border of Croatia, Italy and Slovenia, Dante and Igor, two trumpet players of different ages, different backgrounds and different nationalities recaptured the tunes and routes Dante used to play as member of the Momiano brass band 50 years ago.
The video follows their procession through the surroundings and centre of Momian, their march starting again in each shot.
The soundtrack is a mix of their live performance and their rehearsals during the preceding week.
