A film by Chelsea College of Art & Design staff Peter Karkut is to be shown at the London Short film Festival on 10th January 2013 at ROXY bar & screen in London.
Peter’s film ‘Sunflower Supermodel’ shows a sunflower in full bloom compared with the youth of a woman who’s ginger hair matches the colour in the centre of the sunflower. Shot in a way that resembles the unnatural perfection of the advertising world, the decay of the flower mirrors the impermanence of the woman’s youth.
The film is accompanied by a menacing and meditative score that relies heavily on time-stretching of audio to produce an organic sound-scape. There is a gravity to the audio that matches the theme of decay in the film. The film ends with sounds of blood circulating in the heart and images of the soil that the sunflowers once thrived upon.
