A thoughtful visualization for Christian Löffler’s track “Noah” by Californian filmmaker Mishka Kornai of Theia Studio. Currently based in Berlin, Kornai documents the lives of three real people in an effort to answer the question: “Who still uses telephone booths?” The video centres around three urban booths in Montréal, Berlin and London. Deserted by most but indispensable to some, here the cubicles appear more like teleportation capsules — portals into distant or past relationships — raising further questions about our modern world of virtual communication and what happens when these physical spaces for connection are gone. Of the cast, Kornai also shares:

“Johnny, in his 70s, grew up in Egypt but moved to Montréal over 50 years ago. He has two children and owns a shop on the island of Point Saint Charles which sells rare gems and minerals. Magdalene’s parents came to London from Ghana and she grew up between her UK family and her grandmother in Ghana. Magdalene’s husband of over 17 years, Gerald is the face on the other side of her phone call. Dylan is a performance artist originally from Ireland currently finishing their university studies in Poznan Poland. They are planning a move to Berlin after completing school this summer. The photos in the video are from a single night out clubbing in Berlin.”
