Eoin Duffy: On Departure

We posted the trailer for Eoin Duffy's 'On Departure' in June 2012, a year later the full version of the short is being released online.

The dialogue free short tells its story through clean geometrical shapes and audio visual abstraction, perfectly expressing and encapsulating Eoin's personal emotional experiences centred around the loss of his younger brother Emmet. The film sees a lone traveller making his way through an airport before finally accepting his journey's end, this represents Eoin's journey home, his transition through the 5 stages of grief, all the while drawing parallels to his brother's own journey.

Eoin's restrained and simplistic aesthetic strips the film of any character distractions allowing the audience to melt into the deep tenderness of this audio visual experiment.
