Jean-Julien Pous’ latest short film, “Seeking You,” is a poetically ambiguous ode to sensuality, seduction and, ultimately, the cacophonous beauty of Hong Kong. Its hybrid imagery dances between the figurative and abstract, pulling the viewer into a vortex of sensory overload inspired by the film’s subject matter.
On the official movie site, Pous does a great job sharing his production process and the inspiration for the film’s look and feel, which includes Japanese Studio 4°C’s “Mindgame” and Satoshi Kon’s Tokyo Godfathers.
“Seeking You” was created while Pous studied at the Vancouver Film School. You may have also seen Pous’ previous effort, Switch, an existential short co-created with Pierre Prinzbach while they attended Supinfocom in France. Pous currently lives in Hong Kong.
