ST. ANTON FILM FESTIVAL, WINNER
PURITY PORTRAITS THE RELATION BETWEEN PASSION AND SPORT. THE FILM RAISES THE QUESTION, WHY PEOPLE UNDERGO ALL THE TROUBLE JUST TO ABLE TO DO THEIR SPORT. THERE SEEMS TO BE NO DIRECT BENEFIT.
DELICATELY CONNECTING INTERVIEWS AND POETIC SHOTS SHOWING FOUR DIFFERENT SPORTS (SKIING, RUNNING, GLIDING AND WIND SURFING), THE FILM EMPHASIZES THE PERSONALITY OF THE PARTICIPANTS. PURITY PICTURES SPORTIVE ACTIVITIES IN THE CONTEXT OF PERSONAL BELIEVES, A WAY OF LIVE AND SHOWS THAT YOU BENEFIT FROM THE ACTIVITY ITSELF.
ON THE WHOLE AS WELL AS IN DETAIL, PURITY IS WELL THOUGHT THROUGH AND COMBINES THE PICTURES, THE INTERVIEWS AND THE MUSIC INTO ONE FILM. IT SHOWS THE DIFFERENT APPROACHES TO SPORT WITHOUT PUTTING A SPIN TO THE PERSONAL STORIES.
