About the film
Last of Our Kind
Release Date: February 16, 2013
|Production Companies||:||Emerald Reels|
Weaving together film, music and poetry, "Last of Our Kind" transforms the memory of a lost love into a ritualistic incantation of longing. Action is exaggerated and time seems to blur, as the lovers' tale unfolds poetically into a modern interpretation of the Persephone myth. Shot entirely on Super-8 - the movie traces the poem, line by line, throughout the city of Seattle in sequences of time-lapse photography blended with live-action that collapse and rearrange time and events into memories. Shot as a silent film, "Last of Our Kind" features an original soundtrack created by Robin Guthrie interwoven with a voiceover recitation of Rick Linville's poem.
