"Silence of the tears"

“Silence of the tears” is a short film project that will combine a powerful cinematography and contemporary dance. It's the story of two childhood friends who find themselves 15 years later. The time has passed but the memories quickly return to the surface. Memories and emotions will guide the two characters in a deep face to face that will lead them to questioning a past event that has been the biggest mystery of their childhood.

Director Adrien Ouaki and his team will collaborate on this project to combine their talents to find the perfect balance between cinematography and contemporary dance.
Orsolina28 and his nature is the most appropriate location to shoot this short film. The incredible and authentic nature of this place will give the right atmosphere to the different scenes.


Adrien Ouaki studied at the International Dance Academy in Paris, graduating at the age of 21. He perfected his knowledge of contemporary dance by participating in workshops with choreographers such as Hofesh Shechter, Wim Vandekeybus, Ohad Naharin, Crystal Pite.
