Apricot by Ben Briand

13 08 2013

A touching trip into the whimsical, wondrous alcoves of a lover’s memory. Do you remember your first relationship? Do you remember your first kiss? Do you remember your first love? Apricot subtly hauls its audience into the realms of thought. The brilliant lofty dream-like cinematography allows the viewer to meander and slide into their own peaceful, contemplative abyss. Watching, but simultaneously searching, focused, yet distracted. The style and finesse in which this short is shot is truly breathtaking. Each frame could be a still, capturing the beauty and delicacy of each memorable moment. This is what this short is trying to express. It is our memories that are the keys to our past. They are little jewels that should be nurtured and cared for carefully collected in our own intrinsic vaults. It’s about who we “share moments with” and how interactions are “rare and out of the ordinary.” Apricot asks us to think, but to think for no reason. To think for the sake of remembering, to drift carelessly through our mind, to wander and find and to romantically entangle with our long lost thoughts.
