If there were a channel where people could just post short films modeled on this one, about the things that make them who they are and the thoughts that drive them, I would watch it a lot. This is sweet, exuberant, and dynamic without being frenetic. A lovely peek into a filmmaker's psyche.
Tight film, well wrought. Balances on the edge of an indictment. Pulls back in a gesture of welcome and reconciliation. Not sure I can place the sudden juxtaposition. For me, the allegories don't hold because of it, but nevertheless, as a poetic film it hypnotizes. Something is up the sleeve. Keep making art Akingbade.
In less than 3 min. a voice-over recited street poetry is accompanied by an interesting, increasingly beating sound and an overall well-done image editing.
It made me want to see some more of this (female) director, to me unknown.
I think Jack Kerouac would have been amused.
A spoken word poem/song about the London Ghetto.
Nothing incredibly earth-shattering or profound.
But some interesting images and montages.
Only 3 minutes long, so not much here.
But the brevity is what it is.
The opening images are the most interesting, but are never fleshed out. I would have liked to see/hear more about those and what the filmmakers point was.
Watching 1961 Tarkovsky "Boy and the Steam Roller next this 3 minute short, the amazing part is the ability to have a complete project apparently using I know not what camera. The only thing missing was free jazz, which might have ruined the film. We watch Dr. Who with subtitles.
