Official Selection Film Spotlight
Still Life 'Interitus' / 'Tabeo' / 'Vanitas'
00:15:00 / Brisbane, Australia
Still Life is a triptych of three films inspired by the stage version. The films are the result of a 12-month COVID-enforced collaboration between Australasian Dance Collective and Kiosk Film.
How do you think your film relates to the NBFF 2022 Theme 'Dancing Around the World'?
As a direct response to Covid, this was quite literally The Australasian Dance Collective's attempt to take their work around the world in an attempt to find new audiences.
What do you hope to communicate with our audience through your work?
Hopefully the sense that film has the power to deliver aspects of choreography and an intimacy with the viewer that are not possible in a live setting.
