It’s an adaptation of a short film created by Jay Electronica and The Bullits called Run and Hide (Fuir et se Cacher).
The theme song of Nuance is their key track as well, Run and Hide. The narration throughout the movie by Elisa Lasowski- I was able to rearrange it to tell a little story. Both films are somewhat abstract. I was inspired by the product that is a package of contents rather than a book. So as a gift you would receive this package with all these love letters, tickets, stamps and little souvenirs from different times in the story, and you can read them in any order want to get the big picture. By the end you’re like: ‘Oh obviously this was about heartbreak, revenge, and this guy met this girl and this happened in this city and there. They had these photos taken of them, and then there was this guy, who had a sketchpad, who was a criminal. So, you put it all together yourself. Nuance is me trying to pay some homage that idea.
Phil’s process and his whole take on skiing, for me, is all in the details. I’m trying to reflect his small subtleties; of his hometown, of his skillset, his spirit and at the same time I’m trying to show that I’m trying to play ball, assimilate and learn —through Phil—and whether that’s in the smallest way. Nuance is also just another cognate… En Particulier, our previous film.
