I saw the opening scene to photographer Yelena Yemchuk‘s film debut, El Monte, on Nowness a couple of months ago and it’s one of those things that I can’t seem to get out of my head, so I thought I’d share it here in case some of you haven’t seen it.  In this scene she pays homage to Fellini’s 8 1/2 and it’s a chilling and captivatingly beautiful take with model Natasa Vojnivic set to an emotionally moving background of vintage gowns and opera singing using Elisa Silver’s voice.
