Don’t Get Me Wrong…

I’m really happy that ‘Territory’ the second short film by French duo The Blaze got a Grand Prix in Cannes. Cocorico. It’s a magical piece of work, small output of songs and videos have focused on moments of intensity and intimacy between men. But it’s also just a cleverly executed moment of sound and film working in unison. The elusive duo’s attention to detail has made fans out of everyone. But then comes the conservative adman point of view that wonders why a short movie, as good as it can be, can be a Grand Prix Film Craft in Cannes Lions. We’re not in advertising…well, who cares? But the festival must clarify the directions it wants to take for the future.
