"Spirit" short film
by Talgat Abishev from Алматы
The story is about night racer, who transfers drugs. Day is a sleep time, while at night he rides the motorbike and goes illegal. It seems that the life has lost all its meaning and that’s why he decides to take on this risky job. Yet everything changes when a mysterious woman starts appearing out of nowhere, who reminds him of his past.
We’ve decided to make a story on the edge of neo-noire and mystical thriller genres. Inspired by the artistic style of Nicolas Vinding Raphne in “Drive” and David Phincher we decided that movie must be with its own extraordinary pressuring atmosphere.
