OSLO FASHION WEEK – PART DEUX: A MUSE FILM WITH ALL THE CLOTHING FROM EMPIRIO ARMANI. OUR DEAR SWEDISH FRIEND AXEL LINDAHL HAS PREVIOUSLY DONE MANY ELEGANTLY CONTROVERSIAL AUDIOVISUAL FASHION FILMS.
The director and photographer is about to break through internationally, and he is now represented in New York. That is happy news and it makes us at Hocus Focus very proud as a working collaborator. The attention seeking images are in a way clean and dirty at the same time, and the expression has perhaps more in common with what is defined as art film than commercial film. The raw and hard overall look is represented in the black make-up of the models Anabela Belikova and Eugeniy Sanchanka, the varnish and leather they are wearing, the Doberman and the music by Du Pacque. As with other creative pieces from Lindahl, he continues to manage to bring his audience into fascinating, strange and slightly threatening worlds. It takes less than one and a half minute. That is impressive! Post produced by Lene Cathrine Albertsen and Hocus Focus. Coloured by Haavard Albertsen, edit and sound by Martin Stoltz.
