Directed by Donovan Vim Crony, DEPARTURE follows an alien couple who were sent to Earth disguised as human beings to determine if the planet has proper living conditions for their species.
“DEPARTURE is a noir jazz sci-fi short film,” Vim Crony told AFROPUNK. “I’ve been developing a kind of ‘jazz sci-fi’ aesthetic for many years through my work in filmmaking. I tend to lean heavy on rock and roll sounds and hyper visual aesthetics, but I always come back to a very fluid narrative. I love the balance between calm and chaotic when in comes to cinema. I think about rhythm in film just like I think about rhythm in jazz and rock and roll.”
