Familia's Adriaan Louw directs short featuring artist Desire Marea and designer Lukhanyo Mdingi

LVMH Prize - Karl Lagerfeld recipient, Lukhanyo Mdingi and South African Filmmaker Adriaan Louw collaborated on a soulful interlude, witnessing the essence of artist and wayshower Desire Marea.

We’re invited into Desire’s movement through their space – from the street side to piano – coaxed gently throughout by their voice as they tell the story of realising their musical gift. Desire is understood in this film as more than a muse; but as a being of magnitude in the expression of their deeply divine essence. A rarity to witness someone who conveys the fullness of their body, mind and soul – in all that they do.

The film becomes a multi-dimensional visual landscape, expanding on themes of Truth & Self. Desire commands their physical body as a space within which the full, multiplicity and range of their spirit can exist. This in essence, becomes a pursuit of physical and spiritual incarnation, to experience a sensory reality such as the earth beneath ones feet. We see this expressed in Desire’s movements in latter frames – as they reveal an unbridled evocation of dance among languid grass, grazing against their body in unison with the sound of their spoken words and truth.

Within this piece, you will find an abiding sentiment to the human spirit and the gospel of truth.
