(o amor em visita)

No Meio da Confusão (o amor em visita) is a short film by a Portugues filmmaker Catarina Barata. In spring 2012 she invited Jasper Džuki Jelen en Mojra Vogelnik-Škerlj to collaborate on her project, in which she investigated how to translate the intimacy of a dance performance to a film screen. The physical wordless communication between Jelen en Vogelnik-Škerlj provided Barata the building stones to formulate her personal reflection on the society. For filming location she chose the desolte and breathtaking landscape around South-Portugues town Sintra.

The physical material of No Meio da Confusão was in 2014 worked out into a short duet In the Midst of Everything.
