Last Fragments of Winter

 
 
 
The transition of literary works to film is something that's constantly fascinating me, perhaps like most readers I find that often when reading I tend to envision novels, stories, poems in a cinematic way, and reversely when watching films sometimes imagining how they might potentially appear as a written work. Edmund Yeo's 2011 film; Last Fragments of Winter, finds it's inspiration in Kanai Mieko's short story, The Moon, which can be read in the collection; The Word Book, published by Dalkey Archive, 2009, the film fantastically expands on the original story. The film was shown at the 2012 International Film Festival Rotterdam and is available to watch via their youtube channel until the end of February.
