|261mc| Documentary: Summer Tasks

Below is the link to my one minute short Immortal which I produced over the summer holiday.

Immortal is a visual poem/cinematic essay relating to the grandiose subject of world preservation and pollution.

I was inspired to create this short after watching a Chinese Documentary feature called Behemoth (Zhao Liang, 2015) which delves into the dehumanizing impact of coal mining in China and the resulting ‘Ghost Cities’ that litter the country.

The feature relies almost exclusively on it’s stunning and explicit visuals to tell its story (minus a few voice of god, poetry excerpts). This gave me the idea to create a visual poetry short which feels grand in scale and dark in delivery just like the Zhao Liang film.
