An exploration of intimacy, ‘Petty Passion‘ is a symbolic take on the nature of human relations in an overly dissociated and desensitized climate; exhibiting a curious and at times bizarre exchange. Subtly portraying deep-seeded human emotions and instinctual traits, or lack thereof, the film examines the peculiar relationship that is its subject. Utilizing a monotonic palette, ‘Petty Passion’ humbly illustrates an intertwined portrait of mortal desires.
The film begins by exploring ideas of detachment, isolation, and indifference as byproducts of its settings while gradually demonstrating the consequential violence, and grief that follows an unrequited affection. For its final act, ‘Petty Passion’ delivers a symbiosis of conflicting and complementing emotions, where all expressions and sentiments are synchronously present. Celebrating and mourning at once, ‘Petty Passion’ is an ode to all that one could feel.
‘Petty Passion‘ is from the album Ruinism out now on BRAINFEEDER. Directed by Hirad Sab, the visual is based on Marielle Tepper’s gorgeous album artwork.
