Perfectly Flawed

A stylised hyper real film that captures a moment in time.

Set under a bridge in the outskirts of Amsterdam after a hot summer. A real conversation blossoms between two complete strangers. The occasion formed an organic narration to the film. They talk life and lessons whilst we watch Yassine trying to find himself amongst all the stillness and frustration of the Pandemic.

Director, Jak O’Hare street cast Yassine & Mimi. Spending time with the two individually to gain a feeling of who they are and feel about life before bringing them together for a real shared moment.

I think we live in a world where we are constantly striving for some form of perfection. Especially in our online presence and particularly relevant to a generation who have grown up with social media platforms. For me the flaws are actually where a lot of beauty lies.

‘Perfectly Flawed’ explores the duality of how we see the world and what we show and tell others. The information age has changed so much in terms of how we see our reflection on the world. The competition, the opportunities, the comparing all create such conflict and statements like ‘I know a lot of people, but I don’t know if their all my friends’.
