PATER NOSTER | Short Film

posted by on 04/05/2013

Ethereal is the best word to describe Salomon Ligthelm‘s short films, this latest one entitled ‘PATER NOSTER’ is no exception. The title derived from the latin term for ‘The Father’ pays homage to the writings of John Bunyan. The short film centers around a young couple’s relationship through the storm of life. It’s slow but not too slow, slow enough to make your mind trying to decipher what’s going on. The orgasmic RED camera shots are delightful and according to him; 90% of the film wasn’t graded. Just incredible, it’s all about shooting in the perfect natural light. Enjoy the film on the reverse, another masterpiece from Salomon.

I recognise his photography but where from? It’s the shot of the guy above that I’ve seen somewhere before. Gah. It’s annoying me that I can’t figure it out, my visual memory has failed me on this occasion. Pete Zelewski, a London-based photographer has put together a wonderful series of imagery based on the people he’s comes across in London’s infamous Soho. Incredibly vivid, crisp and clear style of photography that stands out for me as well as the diversity of his subjects. It’s a celebration of London’s vast multiculturalism.
