JESPER JUST: IT WILL ALL END IN TEARS
Jesper Just’s films, heavily influenced by film noir aesthetics, are moody, atmospheric narratives often comprised of ambiguous and unresolved storylines. Just employs social and cinematic conventions to weave together motifs such as power and redemption into films that are intimate yet unclear expressions. The gallery showcased three 35-mm films in high definition video: A Little Fall of Rain, And Dreaming Is Nursed In Darkness, and It Will All End in Tears. Filmed in the summer of 2005, this marked Just’s first time setting classic New York City spaces as backdrops for his work.
