Director Louis Mandylor
USA, 2013, 9mins (Short)

She used to dance for him, he used to play. Trapped in the dreams of yesterday, it’s a torment that shows no end...

Inspired by Greek mythology, Persephone is a love story that transcends time. A young supper club waitress clings to her lost love, pianist Jack. There is a photo on the wall that is changing. Only Persephone can see that Jack’s image is slowing turning towards her…

Persephone was a chance for me to create something that was not only visually artistic and moody in a way different to any other film I’ve directed, but also to create a story that revolves around an intimate secret love, of the kind that makes being human completely beautiful.” Louis Mandylor
