Kin is the first of a series of fable by Seb and Ben McKinnon.  It was the winner of Best Cinematography at the Fantasia International Film Festival.  Watch it and you will see why.

Although it could be classed as somewhat experimental perhaps things will become clearer as new episodes are released – although you may not feel the need for further elucidation as this quite ethereally majestic all on its own.  I do love bold film-making like this where the audience is left to fill in the gaps themselves.  The cinematography is simply lovely, too.

This, we are promised, is just the beginning – there are also plans for a graphic novel based on the series.  You can see this and also a great collection of sketches and concept paintings over at the Kinfables website.
