"The concept obviously came from the song," Yates says. "When I first hear a song I can't figure out all of the words I don't understand where it's going emotionally, and that really excites me. I try to use those impressions in my film." Of his choice to cast a woman to evoke the meaning of the song, he says, "The music was ethereal, beautiful, delicately played and had interweaving streams of emotion — so I felt it need a feminine protagonist — but one from another realm. The title 'This River Has a Tide' is literally and metaphorically about subtext and undercurrent and water, which also fit my Woman From Another Realm's journey."
Candela is out March 11 via Fatcat Records.
