1. Graduation project.

    This film has been written symmetrically:
    the second half is strictly like the first, but played backwards and mirrored.
    The second part doesn't act like a simple rewinding, but as the following of the first.
    It explores all sorts of symmetry: compositions, shapes, sounds and music, scenario, colors, actions, time...

    Written, directed & edited by Yann Pineill
    Music by Cliff Martinez & Joseph Haydn
    Starring Edouard Sanville, Daphné Sanville & Romane Pineill

  4. An elderly gentleman attempts to retrieve forgotten memories.

    A week prior to his passing, my grandfather shared with me his former aspirations of becoming a filmmaker. After numerous hardships, a narrow escape from the Nazis and an immigration to the US, the dream slowly, but surely, faded away. After his passing, I uncovered an archival trove of dust-covered 8mm film that had seemingly not been viewed by anyone for at least a generation. Mesmerized, what unfolded before me was something most people, myself included, have never witnessed before: the development and utter decline of the human body and mind. Motivated by my grandfather's unfulfilled dreams of filmmaking, I decided to piece together a film that he had already unwittingly made.

    quicksand is not only a personal tribute to my grandfather or father, but to anyone that has ever experienced loss. Whether it be a loss of a loved one, or a loss of memories, quicksand embodies the enigma of life and death.

    "It’s truly an inspiring piece of work, effortlessly illustrating the very stuff that makes us human in the first place—our connections to those whom we love." - Ivan Kander (of Short of the Week); http://bit.ly/17VXfm9
