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.
A sophisticated, well made film, packing enough into three minutes, by thoughtfully lining up spoken word, visuals, editing, sound (also, 'lilting' is maybe not the best word...?) to make the three minutes significantly more than the sum of its parts. Well done.
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.
