PATHLESS

Pathless_Still_1.jpg

The award-winning short film Pathless is Charlotte Verminck's filmmaker's debut, starring Bénie Boda and featuring an original soundtrack by Adele Etheridge Woodson.

 

The film is a poetic translation of the universal feeling at one’s unknown next step in life. It connects to the overwhelming periods of doubtful thoughts yet resilient ambition one may encounter. A visual and aural combination of fear yet fearlessness. Though the soliloquy echoes one’s inner difficulty, the road of life gives aspiration for more, and that road is pathless.

Pathless won the Best Experimental Award at The Athens International Monthly Art Film Festival and The New York Tri-State International Film Festival, and won the Best Poetry Film Award at The New Arts International Film Festival and The Motion Pictures International Film Festival. The film is also nominated for Best First Time Filmmaker at Cannes Shorts Film Festival and selected at The Poetry Film Festival in Hollywood, The First-Time Filmmaker Sessions at Pinewood Studios, The International Video Poetry Festival in Athens, The Monologues & Poetry International Film Fest in California, The Agrinio International Film Festival, and The Chicago Feedback Film Festival.

More about
this production

Due to the script being so experimental, Charlotte in all respects wanted the film to have the same unique DNA applying unexpected transitions; using various camera gear; adding an original versatile score; and letting the same person play both the protagonist and antagonist.

 

The protagonist’s soliloquy makes the viewer aware that the breaks in life aren’t bad things. These moments enter your existence to teach you something. It makes time to analyze where you wish to head next in this world. It’s a blessing to be “pathless” because it indicates you can go wherever you want to move planting seeds where YOU genuinely desire. In short, this is a love letter to life.
