Love this video for Abstrackt Keal Agram by Los Angeles-based director and photographer Romain Laurent. Shot on 35mm, “For No One” follows two characters separated by time and experience yet connected through a shared sense of anxiety:
“The inspiration behind this story comes from seeing my wife’s father dying slowly of cancer. As much as I could try to imagine the pain she felt, I couldn’t really put myself in her shoes. It dawned on me that one day I will have to face this situation with my mother – who raised me alone from child to teen. I revisited a number of moments and situations she had to deal with during which I would be disrespectful, wouldn’t understand how worried she would be nor care about her feelings. I saw a few things from her perspective, and it made me pause to acknowledge how much I love her.”
