Jesper Just: The Lonely Villa
Jesper Just (b. 1974) examines the complexities of human relationships in his short films.
Jesper Just (b. 1974) examines the complexities of human relationships in his short films. He tells his stories by dropping subtle hints and clues, leaving the final meaning unresolved. Like many of his previous works, The Lonely Villa (2004) examines minority cultures, gender stereotypes and inter-generational relationships. The uniting theme of his work is the process of finding and rebuilding one’s identity.
Communication often takes place in music rather than dialogue in Just’s films. In The Lonely Villa, the main protagonists converse by singing to each other over the telephone, with the lyrics indirectly hinting at the emotions unfolding between them.
The Lonely Villa is presented in the media space of the Touch exhibition.
