A Beautifully Choreographed Stop-Motion Film About Light and Shadow

More

Juan Pablo Zaramella's short film Luminaris makes clever use of natural daylight and time-lapse photography to tell a love story. Sans dialog, the film plays with visual jokes and unexpected plot twists.  In a review for Short of the Week, James McNally explains that "the film took more than two years to make, mainly due to the unpredictability of weather conditions and especially the movement of the sun, which changed the shadows on the locations every day." The cinematography alone is stunning, capturing pristine patterns of shadow across Buenos Aires' cityscape.
