Germany / 2022 / Music Video / 03:04 min

A music video to Ella Milch-Sheriff’s composition "Click-click, tick-tick" for mezzo-soprano and piano after a poem by Sylvia Plath. Time is running, thoughts are racing, and life is running out: is the protagonist in Sylvia Plath's poem standing still or is she fighting against it? Her loneliness and desperation become palpable, but also the strength with which she fights against it. With Uta Christina Georg | mezzo-soprano.
