The first time we had the pleasure of director Jamie Travis’ company was for his triplet of films The Patterns Trilogy. Well, working in threes once again, he’s recently finished The Armoire, the final instalment of his The Saddest Children in the World trilogy, and joins us to discuss evoking emotion through a formal filmmaking approach.
The Armoire (2009)
11 year-old Aaron plays a game of Hide and Seek in which his friend Tony is never found. The mystery of their relationship—and of their queer attachment to the armoire in Aaron’s bedroom—can only be revealed, it turns out, through hypnosis.
