Short Film Recreates The Palindrome In Visual Form [Video]

Short Film Recreates The Palindrome In Visual Form [Video]

Two stories mirror each other perfectly to create one cohesive piece for this graduate project.

Ross Brooks

A palindrome is a a word, phrase, or sequence that reads the same backward as it does forward. Filmmaker Yann Pineill has applied this principle to his latest short-film called “Symmetry,” a seven-minute piece in which the first and second halves of the film are mirror images of one another.

Pineill makes it clear that the second half of the film isn’t just a straight copy:

This film has been written symmetrically: the second half is strictly like the first, but played backwards and mirrored. The second part doesn’t act like a simple rewinding, but as the following of the first. It explores all sorts of symmetry: compositions, shapes, sounds and music, scenario, colors, actions, time…

To fully appreciate the amount of effort that went into this creative piece of filmmaking, check out the video below.
