The Ane Brun Saga

This Sunday, instead of sacred verbal extracts from either kids or literature, we have the first two visual instalments of a gorgeous short film entitled One. It is inspired by the music from Norwegian singer Ane Brun's recent 2011 album It All Starts With One. Beautifully shot and highly mediative, the full film debuts later this year.

From Ane Brun's Youtube Channel:

The Director for the whole project, Ane's long-standing video director Magnus Renfors, says of the venture:

"Ane's music is like a great ocean housed under the roof of a great old theater, where pictures are hung from the threads of the music shooting out, so it really does the job itself. That said, the images require a certain height at a substantively dramatic level, otherwise the music, sometimes so sublime and skin tingling, can rush over the head of the visual aspects. Ane and I have done stuff together since 2003 and already on the last album we talked about doing something bigger, more coherent, and this time it was really the one. "

"ONE", as the film is called, is a poetic tapestry incorporating various threads interwoven on several levels, integrating and complimenting Ane's delicately composed branches between hope, rage and grief.
A heavy period of post-production is now rolling with the other chapters before the film is fully released in the fall.

I think they are wonderful. Enjoy.
