Straight 8 Competition 2022
Parisian Parallel Paris, Fr - April & 
May 2022

Super8 - Canon 514XL-S - Kodak 250D Vision 3 - Shot in Paris, France
The soundtrack samples a live performance by Baptiste-Florian M
ARLE-OUVRARD of Debussy's Clair de Lune, at Saint-Eustache Church.
Copyrights granted with the kind courtesy of Mr. Marle-Ouvrard.

This short film focuses on a Parisian cultural and architectural rarity: the number of churches and cinemas present in the city; drawing this parallel that despite being major historical cultural landmarks, both are at risk of disappearing in a near future.

This film was made for Straight 8 2022, shot on kodak 250D Vision 3, in one take - no editing - blind soundtrack.
