Spring: A Short Film Based on Hemingway’s Memoir

British film­mak­er Temu­jin Doran may be bet­ter known for his strong, high­ly opin­ion­at­ed views on democ­ra­cy and pol­i­tics, but his adap­ta­tion of Ernest Hem­ing­way’s mem­oir, A Move­able Feast, is some­thing else entire­ly.

Though still nar­rat­ed in Doran’s char­ac­ter­is­ti­cal­ly urgent, rest­less tone, Spring offers a qui­et trib­ute to Parisian urban­i­ty and the rich­ness of sea­son­al­i­ty, cap­tured with cin­e­mat­ic min­i­mal­ism and eeri­ly indul­gent aes­thet­ic aus­ter­i­ty.

Maria Popo­va is the founder and edi­tor in chief of Brain Pick­ings, a curat­ed inven­to­ry of eclec­tic inter­est­ing­ness and indis­crim­i­nate curios­i­ty. She writes for Wired UK, GOOD Mag­a­zine, Big­Think and Huff­in­g­ton Post, and spends a dis­turb­ing amount of time curat­ing inter­est­ing­ness on Twit­ter.
