THE QUEEN short film



Having a Mysterious Encounter in New York...

Out, out, brief candle!

Life is but a walking shadow, a poor player

That struts and frets his hour upon the stage

And then is heard no more.

- William Shakespeare -

I, I will be King, And You, You will be QUEEN

- David Bowie - R.I.P. -
