Shot on location in Ibiza, the second collaboration between Let's Eat Grandma and Balan Evans reflects the director's current obsession with collage.

Evans manipulates his images by dividing them into far smaller pieces and then shifts frames within shots, to createa wve effect. It's another way of looking at lovely place, and adds a haunting quality to a catchy tune by the slightly sinister Grandma...
 

From the director

BALAN EVANS:

"This film was inspired by the photography of Maurizio Galimberti – his fragmented polaroid portraits were a launching point.

"We started doing some tests and through that process we found that one of the most satisfying techniques was by using the same frame and slipping each segment a frame or two, thus you get this drifting feeling. I’m obsessed with collage at the moment and I think this is where this idea came from.

"The film floats through these different sun-drenched locations, I wanted it to feel like a drifting memory, a fragmented collection of images. Like a box of old analogue holiday photos."
