She

“Love from above shine here below.
Love of soul let her be whole.
Love in spirit be empty of all.
Love infinite be he adored.
Let love on earth be poured.
Let fear in her soul flee its hold.
May the Joy of love never be here untold”

She Moon, Love Spell, was conceived as an Avant-Garde project for a course module while completing an MA in Filmmaking.  Sylvia went into production without a script; only an idea, a few frames in mind, the lyrics of the She Moon Song and a message to share.
