FILM #14: VALTARI BY CHRISTIAN LARSON

 

i’ve always been inspired by dance, so i wanted to tell a short story with dialogue through movement, without anyone saying anything. sidi larbi cherkaoui’s extraordinary choreography created this unique communication between the dancers james o’hara & nicola leahey. larbi’s way of working with flexibility played as an interesting contrast to the harsh environment in which matthias montero’s pure and ethereal style of cinematography allowed an intimate portrait of the couple.

I’ll put another playlist together for this.

After the Pink Floyd event and Ini’s launch, Furillen will now go back to a quiet life. The snow has returned, and I’m deciding whether to leave it falling for the summer, when the janitor will be gone for several weeks. Not everyone loves the snow, but it’s how the sim started, and how most people will always remember it …
