Hear Her Out

“Always a pleasure to work with Chanel, always a pleasure to work with Nana” wrote photographer and director Julien Birban Lévy in a tweet announcing his new short film on Thursday May 19. The French artist who often uses Tokyo, Paris or New York as base camps previously worked with actress and model Komatsu Nana on several occasions, especially in 2016 for the short film There is no Tomorrow.

This time he put his efforts into ‘Hear me out‘ a short film clip for Chanel and Madame Figaro Japon. Duration: 2’48 – Soundtrack: Who’s it gonna be by Suo – text by Salomé Kiner (French).

There is no tomorrow

You know what is the rarest thing on earth? It’s not gold, it is not stardust, it is not platinum nor antimatter. The rarest thing of all is benevolence.’ This is one of the lines you hear from an unnamed character in ‘There is no tomorrow’ (明日なんてない – Ashita nante nai), a short film by French photographer, director and writer Julien Levy.

The self-produced movie (released in 2016 – runtime: 10’24”) showcased actress Nana Komatsu in a long monologue, filmed and directed by Lévy. Their collaboration was based on a common wish to make something ‘radical’.

The previous year, Julien Lévy organised a photo session with the actress for his forthcoming photobook, Every Day Is Doomsday, which is still available from various online stores, including Amazon.
