(Philadelphia Premier) Weaving together film, music and poetry, ‘Last of Our Kind’ transforms the memory of a lost love into a ritualistic incantation of longing. Action is exaggerated and time seems to blur, as the lovers’ tale unfolds poetically into a modern interpretation of the Persephone myth.Shot entirely on Super-8mm film – the movie traces the poem, line-by line, throughout the city of Seattle in sequences of time-lapse photography blended with live-action that collapse and rearrange time and events into memories. Shot as a silent film, ‘Last of Our Kind’ features an original soundtrack created by Cocteau Twins’ founder, Robin Guthrie, interwoven with a voice-over recitation of Rick Linville’s poem.
