Fragments, a post-apocalyptic mood piece from Monika Delgado & Mickey Todiwala is a non-narrative short that captures the beauty and mystery of several desolated spaces. The film was created as a senior thesis project for Montclair State University’s film program, with the team taking a week long trip into the heart of California’s Death Valley, stopping in at some of the surrounding ghost towns along the way. The pair combined a glidetrack, Zeiss CP2 Primes and a Canon 5d MKII to capture their eerie scenes of forgotten decay, which combine with Jacaszek’s Lament for an inexplicably unnerving viewing experience.
MarBelle has a strange compulsion to watch as many films as he can get his hands on and find jobs that give him a legitimate excuse to drill filmmakers about their work. Directors Notes is the latest incarnation of this disorder and so much cheaper than film school. Twitter: @MarBelle
