#2 SHORT MOVIE

``GHOST OF CHERNOBYL``

SYNOPSIS / GHOST OF CHERNOBYL

The short film « GHOST OF CHERNOBYL » …

This short movie has been filmed almost 30 years after what is considered being the worst nuclear disaster in the human history which has severly impacted and killed over 60,000 people in various countries.
The accident occurred when the No. 4 nuclear reactor in the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant, near the city of Pripyat was pushed to the limit on the 26 of April 1986.
Since the incident Chernobyl and its neihbourhood has remained completely abandonned from any humans living because of the radiation.
Athough nature was massively impacted too it managed to restart to create a new life circle again there.
All theses elements make today Chernobyl the temple of URBEX (Urban exploration). Entire cities including shops, schools, cinemas, gyms, theme parks, streets etc. completely desert.
It is almost impossible to catpure photographs and videos from because of the military guards but also without puting your life at risk because of the radiation and the states of some buildings ready to collapse.
Creating this short movie and this new series of photographs presents various risks, including both physical danger because of the radiation and the states of some buildings ready to collapse.
But also legally because there are no permission to get inside the buildings and the possibility of arrest and punishment is very high.

#1 SHORT MOVIE

``O.U.T IN THE STREET``

SYNOPSIS / O.U.T IN THE STREET

The short film « O.U.T. IN THE STREET » (Once Upon a Time in the Street) reveals many aspects of our society.
It describes in particular the journey of a child who is growing up to become a teenager, who will then become a young man and complete his transformation as an adult.

Those four steps, as per the chosen music theme for this realisation « The Four Seasons » of Vivaldi are intrinsically linked to the rest of the artistic concept which is also based on four fundamental elements.

This short film aims to tell you a story that should resonate no matter where you come from. It is based on the principle of the circle of life for all humans living.
Indeed, all sequences in this short movie are a loop of four plans telling the story of a young person growing up: A human being who travels on the planet using a dedicated transport to get somewhere and to whom a story will happen.

The editing of « O.U.T. in the Street », which follows the tempo of the soundtrack used, reflects the escalation of violence in our society. Each sequence plan evolves very quickly to emphasize the pace of our current lives and the inability to pay attention to the humans around us at this hectic pace.

The morale of is filmed through the scenes of the elevator and of the gun pointing to the camera.
The older the persona is getteing, the deepeer you go down and the darker the story becomes.
But as the movie from Mathieu Kassovitz, « La Haine » which inspired Vincent Kraft, says « It’s not the fall that kills you, it’s the landing ».

Finally, this subject, the way it is filmed and edited is also part of Vincent Kraft’s autobiography where you can see more of his personal life, his travels, the people he met and what he went through in his past . In fact some of the scenes are actually shot in his hometown where he grew up and with the inhabitants of his neighborhood.
