Confined to his room during Covid, Victor Pineda, an urban planner, activist, professor and filmmaker that uses a breathing machine 24/7, continues his search for what makes a life worth living. The documentary contrasts an earlier crisis in Victor’s life and the expansive, chaotic trip he took to Varanasi, India with present-day meditative Vlogs that shed light on his life search for meaning. The film’s soundtrack features a number of Elizaveta’s meditative soundscapes, including outtakes from “Songs of Sleep,” acoustic rendition of “Extraordinary” and many others, especially created or selected for the film. The film was premiered at Word Economic Forum in Davos in late 2022, and will be in wider distribution in the second half of 2023.
Elizaveta contributed a number of her compositions to “My Invincible Compass”: a film directed by Matt MIller. It’s a chronicle of childhood trauma and the journey of the heart. Filmed across Japan over a period of five years, this one-of-a-kind documentary follows the journeys of children living in institutional care and shows the kind of world they face after aging out of the system. The film is sponsored by Keen Footwear and will premiere in March 2023. Among many, also featured is her original song especially written + recorded for the film in Japanese: “Kokoro no Compass.”
It’s time for some sweetness, and Elizaveta has released “Wide Awake,” recorded with a string quintet. The song speaks of waiting up for a special someone, after a long day of hectic routine. Should E have released it on Valentine’s Day instead? You be the judge! You can stream the song everywhere, but to support Elizaveta in a real and meaningful way, consider purchasing the song on here on BandCamp, which is the most artist-friendly resource:
