A Ballad for Tex

United States, 2013


"A Ballad for Tex” analyzes the relationship between cinema and theatre. The film tells the story of Elizabeth, a housewife trapped in an unhappy marriage. Thanks to her ability to dream, she finds shelter in the colours of a painting that livens up to the notes of a sad ballad. Through an experimental approach, the film revolves around an open analysis of the theatrical and cinematographic code.
