I like to go into my weekend feeling inspired or looking forward to something that will rejuvenate my creative juices. This short film by Jauretsi and Crystal has done just that. It is a beautifully shot black and white film about a group of brothers exploring their home – New York. It is big, grand and yet intimate. The narrative is taken from Christopher Bollen’s debut novel Lightning People and read by Chloe Sevigny, Nate Lowman, Leelee Sobieski, Rufus Wainwright, Waris Ahluwalia, Kalup Linzy, Natasha Lyonne and Kirsten Dunst.
It’s a moving collaboration of exquisite images and words. Haunting, ethereal , but recognizably New York.
