A strange being lands on earth, rising up from the smoking crater of where a crashed ship must be. THE LANDING is a fashion film and shoot by Paco Matteo Li Calzi, with avant garde styling by Alexia Mingarelli used to reflect the fact that this girl is not of our world but another.
Paco’s choppy editing and jumpy cuts are the kind that hit you hard and you have to remind yourself to breathe. He knows how to use soundtrack to full effect: noise, more so than music, rises up into uneasy, percussive swells of sound. Between the editing and score, the viewer is disorientated just as the creature is on this strange earth.
The shoot similarly uses landscape and poses to unnerve and convey the story. Model Korlan Madi is an alien, a fish out of water, but a beautiful one at that.
