Isaac Gracie 'Reverie' by Clara Aranovich
Clara Aranovich directs an emotional love story steeped in science fiction mystery for Isaac Gracie.
The US-based director made the trip over to the UK to shoot a sweet, surreal story wherein all young girls seemingly in the entire country fall under some strange catatonic spell. Focussing mostly on a primary school and its pupils, we see as a young boy tries with moderate success to awaken his friend.
The clip shares a cinematic aesthetic laid out in films like Another Earth, or shows like The OA - tapping into otherworldly ideas of ascension in a beautifully paced short narrative piece.
"Upon repeated listening to the refrain, "Darling, I'm not OK," these are the images that surfaced in my mind. There is a profound, existential melancholy with which many of us are living these days, in light of current events.
"While some may feel this a sad story, because parting ways with people we love is sad; to me this is a tale of hope, a tale about escaping a world that has shown little care for your wellbeing, autonomy, body, and future."
