Ephemeral characters embark upon a journey in this new film by Hornet director Eran Hilleli. Commissioned to create the opening film for the Style Frames conference in NYC, Hilleli was given total creative freedom which he embraced by focusing on visuals rich with characters and landscapes. As this piece was developed for a creative conference, he cleverly plays with the symbolism of all types of people coming together to watch, learn and listen. The film unfolds as a mysterious and intriguing vignette from a larger quest, rising to an epic conclusion with a surprisingly light-hearted twist. By simply placing a light emphasis on narrative, Hilleli creates a space to facilitate interplay between the character driven and atmospheric elements throughout the film.
