02 Giu “Return to The Beach” by Nolan Schmidt
Nolan Schmidt returns with a new short film and leaves us completely blown away. In fact, the Texan director seems to have shifted his gaze to new narrative styles that are completely different from the previous films that we had the opportunity to see.
With “Return to The Beach” Schmidt makes us enter a more intimate place of his soul, deeply connected to his memory and life itself. This innovation therefore affects us positively and reveals a poetic depth and a hitherto unknown narrative potential. The superimposition of an off-screen stream of consciousness with the waves of the sea creates a profound connection with the very concept of intimate experience. We are enraptured by Schmidt’s story because somehow we seem to recognize it and remember it personally. Thus, with this small film, simple and complex at the same time, Schmidt opens new future perspectives to his art.
