We reported on Yi Zhou’s latest short film The Ear back in August. Today, we are able to present the movie itself. The film was inspired by Gogol’s short story The Nose from the Petersburg tales and is based on the absurd story of the loss of an ear.
“The ear is actually the key element of the film, shot in RED and partly made in 3d animation. Throughout the film, the ear and inner ear as a whole turn themselves into an EarBrige as they get crossed by a bridge. The EarBridge is part of a public project proposal for Baku, Azerbaijan that includes a number of important international contemporary artists.”
As mentioned previously, the film features Pharrell Williams alongside music by Ennio Morricone and costumes by Rick Owens and BBC/Ice Cream. Very strange, but worth a watch.
