To chose a film director and his selected works to design a comprehensive film festival experience. Discover the common thread that appears in each of the director’s films and conceptualize a visual system. Use different design skills to create a cohesive visual and design language throughout the experience.



The director that I chose was Alejandro González Iñárritu, who won two Academy Awards for Best Director in 2015 and 2016 for his two films “Birdman” and “Revenant.” His movies often portray extreme family tragedies to families using great strength and warmth to show how beautiful life is. For five selected films, I shred portraits and used then torn paper to illustrate the destruction in the stories. The red band symbolizes a violent strike and plight in every story. These elements all converged into the final visual experience.
