Watch Trailer For Lino Brown’s Experimental Film 'Somebody In Nobody' - The First Of A Trilogy

Somebody In Nobody

San Francisco based filmmaker Lino Brown is upfront honest when he says, about his experimental short Somebody In Nobody, that he invites his “audience to find their own meanings and build their conclusion based on personal knowledge of self."

In other words, as modern artists used to say when someone would ask them what their work meant, "It means whatever you want it to mean.

Brown’s Somebody In Nobody is the first of in what he call his Headless Shorts trilogy. He says he was inspired to make this project as the result of conversations he had with over 40 women from different backgrounds and experiences, discussing primal issues women are facing today.

He also says that his close relationship with his 3 sisters and 4 nieces had him contemplating about a few things, mainly our society, a society in my perspective built on old ideas of human spirit and domestication which has now led to a very wrong social perception."

With regards to filmmakers who inspired him, Brown says the works of Japanese directors such as Yasujiro Ozu and Akira Kurosawa, and the Chinese director Kar Wai Wong, have been a huge influence on him, as well as the Russian director Andrei Tarkovsky for “his metaphysical themes of dreams and magical inexplicability of water and self-reflection," and the American photographer Gregory Crewdson for "his strong use of surrealism in his photos like painter Edward Hooper."

He further says that in his films he tries to capture a progression of close and wide framing to parallel the relationship between the two estranged characters as they grow and depart from each other and then ultimately unite again."
