Trailer for KERNEL, by Jamie Flatters and Benjamin Bainbridge.
“I read up on Alan Watts & Charles Bukowski on the Thursday. I thought about their thoughts a lot. The towering idea I wanted to physicalise in a visual was, ‘You don’t need to try with the universe. It is you and you are it’. Bruce Lee’s words stuck in my mind – ‘Be water my friend’. I called Ben on the Friday. I imagined movement from the body that would have the feeling of agency, absent from personal control. Cyclical movement one could get lost in. We made the film on the Saturday. I edited it yesterday. I’m not sure what ‘it’ is to be honest. It brings me a bit of peace though. I give this to you today and I’m all the better for it.” – Jamie
