LEVITATION  — SHORT FILM

- 2019


A short film shot during Amsterdam Dance Event.


L E V I T A T I O N   is a short film that I shot with my crew during #ADE18. I wrote the screenplay when I arrived at our hotel. It's a sufficiently unusual project to sound incredibly pretentious when describing the genre. Here's an attempt: it’s a surreal film in a faintly futuristic but decidedly vivid ADE setting. Its themes include, but are not limited to, displacement in society and humanism. During the shoot I also shot a portrait series of the story’s protagonist.

We get a glance at our world through the eye of an Interplanetary traveler.
