'The Beaded Dress" A Short Fashion Film by Imchatsung Imchen
ft. Esther Jamir / Music 'Apulio Lizo' (Reprise) by Tetseo Sisters
About the garment:
Beads in red and transparent colour threaded by hand to various lengths. The strings were draped over a textile used as lining (woven in Nagaland). Cowrie used as epaulette and also on the back of the garment for detail (like drops) & also to hold the beaded strings. #TheBeadedDress
The mood for this Short Film was inspired by ‘Apulio Lizo’ (Orphan's Lullaby) a song by the Tetseo Sisters. I first got to hear this track as a reprise version beautifully sung by Kuvelu Tetseo on their Reverbnation page in 2012. The same short version of the music was used in this film.
All the content of this video were shot later that year.

About the music:
The song is sung in Chokri of the Chakhesang Tribe of Nagaland.
"Forgive me child
I bear sad news
Oh you are all alone in this world
Dream my child but you have been left behind
The ones you love have gone before you
All you have is this lonely life
But you will grow yet to see this big world
And you shall envy others
For you are without life's greatest gifts
Your mother and father
You will miss the kisses of your mother
The strength of your father
I will sing for you if you wish so
And I will pray for you
I wish my words are comfort enough
Let not death come near
The best things and gifts in life,
All that is left of your loved and dear ones."
