Nina and Keane; 2016;  Rotterdam, The Netherlands

In “Scenes from a marriage” in 1973 Bergman stages the disintegration of the marriage between Marianne and Johan. Since the first act, the couple goes through a process slowly revealing frustration and humiliation. 
How intense can be a caress in the circumstances of a broken relationship? 
Nina and Keane perform together for the last time. The more he touches his partner, the more her skin turns red. This performance was shot out of sight of the camera operator, indiscreetly witnessed by the only 9 cameras pointing at them.
