Shota Gogisvanidze 'Sun' by Valentina Khodnevich

Rob Ulitski - 17th June 2024

Valentina Khodnevich directs an arresting dance film with music by Shota Gogisvanidze.

The beautifully cinematic video for Sun explores movement and light in an intimate, abstract way, blending conceptual narrative with enigmatic choreography. 

"The video for Sun celebrates the regularity found in human life, emphasizing the significant role of light and its influence on our well-being," explains Khodnevich. "We delve into the contrasting effects of sunlight and electric light, contemplating how the integration of artificial illumination in modern life can alter our daily routines.

"Through dance, we portray the human experience as a cyclical journey, where the protagonist relives the same day repeatedly. The choreography incorporates mechanical movements inspired by the ordinary tasks of daily life, such as brewing morning coffee or brushing teeth, while different environments in the film create special context to each set of movements.

"Furthermore, SUN was shot on 16mm film, which creates a unique relationship between the film and light—the sole means through which the images can be captured on the stock."
