The Fainted Clasp
The Fainted Clasp / Director - Simon Harsent
Director: Simon Harsent
Poem: David Nobay
Read by: John Waters
ABC's ArtBreaks project is a bold and inspiring vision, giving artists free reign to create and do exactly what they want. No brief, no borders. The experimental shorts run as ads might on the commercial-free channel and highlight both the strength of the creative industry in Australia and the audience's thirst for art.
Simon interpreted the words with complete artistic freedom and the result is a thrilling and visceral collaborative experiment, the results of which are a resounding success.
The Fainted Clasp has been awarded two Bronze Lions at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity.
