The second short film for Rodarte

The Curve of Forgotten Things

Director: Todd Cole
Cinematographer: Mattthew J Lloyd, CSC
Editor: Michael Mees
Soundtrack: Deerhunter
Producer: Funk Brothers 


Elle Fanning, goes digging for buried treasure in Todd Cole's new collaboration with Rodarte, The Curve of Forgotten Things, premiering exclusively on NOWNESS. The film highlights design duo Kate and Laura Mulleavy's spring 2011 collection, which drew inspiration from 1970s northern California, referencing Redwood forests, the gold rush and Asian influences. The Somewhere star pirouettes through the empty rooms of the historic Baldwin House (which sits on an oil field in LA's Baldwin Hills), her outfits magically changing from one room to the next. Shot on a RED camera using Cooke lenses from the 70s, the short's dusty focus references seminal movies of that era, such as Terrence Malick’s Badlands, while Georgia-based indie rockers Deerhunter provide the dreamy soundtrack. As for the title, “It's the title of a Richard Brautigan poem. The poem and the film are about forgotten things—circles and the curve of time.”
