Art Blog - Yann Pineill - Empty Kingdom

Yann Pineill’s latest short film SYMMETRY – A Palindromic Film is exactly that. An intriguing experiment in editing tricks and drama-romance narratives. Definitely check it out after the jump! Pineill also works under the same production banner of Parachutes, which was previously featured on EK through Thibault de Fournas’ work FROM PAPER TO SCREEN.

Basic information and credits can be read as follows:

“Graduation project. This film has been written symmetrically: the second half is strictly like the first, but played backwards and mirrored. The second part doesn’t act like a simple rewinding, but as the following of the first.

 

It explores all sorts of symmetry: compositions, shapes, sounds and music, scenario, colors, actions, time…

 

Written, directed & edited by Yann Pineill
Music by Cliff Martinez & Joseph Haydn
Starring Edouard Sanville, Daphné Sanville & Romane Pineill”
