Record/Play: Jesse Atlas
“War, fate, and a broken walkman transcend space and time in this sci-fi love story.” That’s how filmmaker Jesse Atlas describes his latest short film, Record/Play. While the description intrigued me, I wasn’t prepared for how viscerally this ten minute film would affect me. Beautifully shot and told with an intensity that belies its running length, this is a wonderfully crafted narrative and something I can’t recommend enough. The short was a crowd favorite at this year’s Sundance Film Festival and rumor has it that Atlas is currently adapting Record/Play into a full-length feature. I’ll definitely be on the lookout for that.
