Killian Lassabliere‘s thrilling new short is an intimate insight into Paris’s skate scene. Titled “Unwordable,” the 2-and-a-half minute experimental clip follows French skater and actor Antoine Plainfossé as he navigates the city’s landscapes on four wheels.
Flitting back and forth between panoramic views, up-close tricks and glimpses of Parisian sidestreets, Plainfossé undergoes a journey of self-discovery in solitude; turning the romantic ideals of the city on its head.
“By highlighting a cinematographic universe in a perpetually moving image, we wanted to present a different perspective on skateboarding and the visual identity of Paris,” Lassablière told Highsnobiety.
In a break away from traditional skate videos, which readily show the roughness of the sport, Lassabliere brings back a certain level of grace to the recreational pastime. For more, check out the video above.
