So the Wind Won't Blow It All Away


The Curve of Forgotten Things, the second short film by Todd Cole for Rodarte, featuring music by Deerhunter, and actress Elle Fanning in Rodarte's Spring/Summer 2011 collection. Via nowness.com:

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, Cole explains: “It's the title of a Richard Brautigan poem. The poem and the film are about forgotten things – circles and the curve of time.”
