Storyline

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. Written by Anonymous

Artistic film based on a poem
17 January 2013 | by charmaine-jelbertSee all my reviews

I really like this movie. An intriguing story, which is really beautifully and intelligently shot. The actors play their parts incredibly well and added something to the whole mystique of the film. I was captivated by the poem, which provided the dialogue for the movie and was cleverly executed. The poem was a love story of sorts and combined with the filming it gave the many layers to the film. The different ways in which it could be interpreted and the ambiguity in each shot really made the film fascinating. There were very beautiful and well-balanced shots. It was done in 8mm, which again provided something unique to the movie. It is a short-film and these are normally harder to capture as much as this one did, without becoming too messy and overcrowded. A beautiful concept and elegantly executed. I walked out of the theatre thinking about the movie for a long time after, still trying to working out all the pieces.
