The Song of Songs
Director ANDRÉ GOLDBERG
Completion Date: 2020 - November
The Beloved yearns for her Beloved. Is he one of King Solomon's valiant or a shepherd went to graze his flock? Is she one of the king's concubines or a simple shepherdess? The Song of Songs is a three thousand-year-old biblical poem from one of the Books of the Old Testament. This love text which highlights the strong intimate and sentimental relationship between a man and a woman questions the relationship within the couple and his power games, but also the fact that today we accepts more easily in our Western societies that love is not an experience lived exclusively between a man and a woman. Something which is not yet accepted, in all parts of the world.
