An experimental documentary on the making of art and it's inherent emotional demands. The Nude is anchored by a vivid and authentic performance by Natalia Carbullido, an experienced figure art model. Within it's lyrical framework the film argues for the unique expressive art practiced by those who's job it is to offer their own bodies laid bare in the service of Art. Like a dancer, Natalia expresses total control over her body. Aware of every muscle and it's function she uses her training in Aikido and her keen eye for classical form to guide her movements, movements that echo the long history of artists collaborating with models to express the mysteries within the human form.
Produced on a micro-budget over eight days, and captured with the AJA Video Cion 4K camera, Unapologetically devoid of genre affectations or polemics, The Nude offers a direct communion between the figure and the camera embracing unbroken moments of time as a way of experiencing the performance required by the model in guiding the eye of the artist.
