L'appollonide- House of Tolerance
This is one my favorite film at the moment- I think the trailer is great. The sequence is simple (unlike most trailers that have a lot of cuts and try to cram in as much information as possible in two minutes), but communicates the essence of the film. I also love the juxtaposition between the strict 19th century based art direction and a soundtrack from a more recent time. In relation to my project, it is both the aesthetic I want to take ques from (with some africa inserted) as well as the idea of a making this aesthetic modern- the music is out of context but works in the same way that i want my west african objects to work...it is a fresh look at an old aesthetic.
