Check out this short from French director Léa Rinaldi, titled, simply, Box.
Two days ago, I profiled an upcoming feature documentary that Rinaldi is directing, on the controversial Cuban hip-hop group Los Aldeanos, which was selected for the upcoming 2012 Les Arcs Work in Progess event.
I wasn’t familiar with Rinaldi, so I looked her up to see what’s on her resume, and that’s how I came across this 2011 12-minute short film.
In short, it covers a boxing match – the calm before the storm, the storm itself, and the aftermath.
It’s in French, but there’s really no dialogue; the images tell the whole story. I think she does a great job with editing and sound design, making for a simple, yet very effective short piece of work.
