Canadian artist, painter, sculptor and filmmaker, Jason Young, made a short ,“The Curling Stones,” that was initially intended as an installation proposal for museums and galleries, but it quickly became an award winning film. And now, that film is a launching point for this much more ambitious project...
The year is 2054… In a world where global warming, war, and societal ills are a distant memory... this idyllic visage is shattered as we track JEAN-LUC, a reclusive scientist, trudging through snow with a rocket and mortar tucked under his arm. Reaching the mountains' peak, Jean Luc eyes the Utopian alpine village below.
Without hesitation, Jean Luc fires the rocket. As the rocket descends speedily towards a lake's surface at the valley base, the village AWAKENS, and a whirlwind of chain reactions is set forth as we are transported into a world of dizzying technological advancement...
We track our multi-national villagers as they seemingly try to escape to some unknown destination, but in a sequences both harrowing and enlightening, we soon realize that the mass exodus of villagers is no escape from Armageddon, but something else... something more obscure... as they race TOWARD the lake surface and the rockets' end point.
With an ending unexpected, this magical film transports us to a world where art and sports are one, re-awakening the communal language of play, a universal sense perhaps lost today at the doors of adulthood. WHITE is a metaphorical film that brings play back into how we live. A film that transcends genre and expectation unlike any other...and much like the greatest works of abstract art, it is a film in which everyone can take away something different.
There will be a place unlike any other. And it's almost here.
Engaging people through play... Imagine the future, where we are once again free to dream, a place where we are ignited together by a game, a sport, a way of life, that summons the world, and its vast array of color, to become one
