Kicks 4 Cranes: The Lost Language of Cranes

Kicks 4 Cranes: The Lost Language of Cranes

Kicks 4 Cranes is a hauntingly lovely short film by Seattle-based filmmaker Matt Cibelli, a film that’s sure to please both crane lovers and shoe fetishists.  Cibelli’s work shifts between narrative and experimental styles with a beguiling sense of simplicity, contrasting beautiful scenes of construction cranes with a bemused audio track of women talking about their collections of shoes. Kicks 4 Cranes is a hypnotic piece of work, and like all good experimental films, in the end its subjects are even more mysterious than before.  However, it also evokes considerable attention to the way in which beauty often needs to be constructed and maintained, not unlike a giant office building.  And it does the obverse as well, showing us that a giant, gleaming construction crane against a sky can, in its own way, be as enticing as a pair of fashionable pumps.
