As part of the Made in Cloister project, Nicolangelo Gelormini has directed a dreamlike video for Chrystabell’s new single “All The Things”, which she penned with David Lynch and Dean Hurley. It was filmed in the stunningly restored monastery of Santa Caterina a Formiello in Naples, a masterpiece of Neapolitan Renaissance architecture turned contemporary art incubator—and it is every bit as exquisite as you’re thinking it might be.
It was co-produced by Annie Ohayon and Fondazione Tramontano Arte.
In anticipation of our world premier, Bell took a moment to tell us about the experience.
How did you come to choose Nicolangelo Gelormini to direct the video?
Nicolangelo was chosen by Davide De Blasio, a friend who is restoring the Cloisters in Naples, because of his sensibilities, as well as his approach to the song. I loved his previous work and his storyline. The song has subtlety and depth, and in order to capture the essence it must be dealt with in kind visually. It’s a tall order and I think it was met beautifully.
Tell us about the atmosphere of The Cloister. It seems to really capture the mood of the song.
The Cloister was a perfect fit. The decadent splendor of the architecture so aptly illustrated a mournful heart trapped in decaying memories.
Were there any particularly memorable moments during the filming of the video?
