Moorings (2:59) created by Andrea Tese, features Maya Baudoin. Presenting a voyage into a young girl’s mind, it combines the playfulness of a child’s fantasies with the haunting nostalgia of an adult’s memories. The video has the eerie quality of a dream in which everything is confused yet ripe with unknown meaning, evoking mixed feelings of fear, frustration, calm and relief.
