Sevdaliza 'The Formula' by Emmanuel Adjei

Luke Bather - 7th June 2016

Dutch artist Sevdaliza stars in the powerful and emotive short film directed by Emmanuel Adjei.

Featuring three of her songs on the soundtrack, Sevdaliza plays Zillah, an artist who is struggling with her mental health, her relationship with her partner (played by Saman Amini), and her work. The trials of all three lead this film to it's emotional conclusion.

A beautifully-paced and deeply cinematic work, Adjei's film starts at the end, and is sparse in exposition throughout, but gives the viewer just enough story to piece all the fragments together, and discover Zillah's story.
