Breathing Remorse Film Festival

Breathing Remorse is a film festival portraying people who face tragedy and how they deal with their situation. Through five films of Alejandro González Iñárritu, we zero on the most difficult situation that people can confront, and see how guilt can crush people and tear the life apart. However, there is not only sorrow in his movies, but also great strength and a sense of warmth to show how beautiful life is.

 

Design of Breathing Remorse
Designing a film festival is the process that takes the experience of films back to words, material, and still imagery. So the challenge is how to deconstruct five different films and synthesize the essential elements into a comprehensive concept and apply to various deliverables. The torn paper and shred portraits illustrated the destruction in the story and the red band which could be a tape, or a violent strike reveals the dilemma and plight in every story. 

The whole project is to celebrate the director, Alejandro González Iñárritu, who wins two Academy of Award for Best Director in 2015 and 2016 for his two films "Birdman" and "Revenant". This is also a project for the class "Integrated Communication." which focuses on bringing the concept of the director into a comprehensive and thrilling film festival experience. 

 

Breathing Remorse電影節
奧斯卡最佳導演—阿利安卓·崗札雷·伊納利圖過去的五部作品呈現了人們在最艱困與沉痛的情境下展現出的生命力量。角色在經歷一連串的失誤與悲劇之後如何自處,與找尋不同的出口。每一部電影用不同的角度描繪死亡的層次,也對比出求生著的韌性和所承受的掙扎。

設計的挑戰在於,如何解構五部不同的電影,將共有的元素融合成一貫的視覺語彙及紋理。重新把電影的情緒轉換到平面設計和產品包裝上。主視覺透過撕碎的材質及人物肖像去表達電影情節中的內心與實際的支離破碎。紅色的條帶,企圖把碎片拼為原狀但同時也可以是象徵破壞性的表現,描繪了戲中想要彌補卻造成傷害的矛盾。

這是「視覺整合與溝通」課程的專案,也是向導演—阿利安卓·崗札雷·伊納利圖致敬的作品。
