Tim Dup 'La Visage De La Nuit' by Raphael Levy

Rob Ulitski - 13th Sept 2019

How much would our lives matter at the end of the world? This is a question that is explored in great detail in the video for La Visage De La Nuit, directed by Raphael Levy.

A couple living alone, after a tsunami ravages their city, go through the motions of everyday life - love, arguments, frustration, boredom. However the lingering issue of what they are meant to do and be in this society hangs above their heads, as they desperately search for meaning, to no avail. Yes they have each other, but does that help or hinder them, and in the end does it even matter at all?

Standing hand in hand as a massive fireball blasts towards the beach they are standing on, their connection is evident. We get snapshots of memories of their lives together, both pre and post-apocalypse, which then extends into cosmic exploration and a massive existential crisis. 

Beautifully lensed by Tim Sidell, the world on screen looks and feels like the one we know, however the threat of extinction bubbles over at the halfway point, and this is represented through frenetic camerawork and quickfire editing. The performances are just as powerful, and we are left with the same questions we had at the beginning.
