Last Wave Film, toiling in obscurity since 2007.
Last Wave Film is a small team of skilled independent filmmakers based in San Francisco, California.
Kindrid Parker and Green La Fleur met in 2002, and started collaborating on writing projects and short films. A couple of years later, Justin La Fleur, Green's brother, joined them in the city to find his way in and out of the Academy of Arts. The three started working in together in an improvised creative studio in San Francisco.
Studying Film and Creative Writing, they produced abundant and varied pieces of experimental art: collages, films, poems, short stories. Green and Kindrid's work caught the attention of literary magazines such as 3AM, The Walrus... Meanwhile, Justin had his first successful collage exhibitions in downtown art galleries.
The name Last Wave was first suggested by Green in 2007; an apocalyptic homage to the French New Wave. Soon, films and collages started to receive the Last Wave stamp.
In 2008, Kindrid Parker wrote Attachment Disorder, a 28-minute short film, and cast Green as the lead actor. The film obtained positive reception in the San Francisco underground film scene, but was tacitly rejected from the San Francisco City Shorts festival due explicit sexual references with a shotgun.
The next year, Last Wave produced a beautiful yet provoking cinematographic adaptation of William Shakespeare's Hamlet. This time, Act III, Scene 1 received a long, respectful slow-clap and landed the festival's highest award: Best Cinematography.
In 2011 cinematographer Basil Glew-Galloway joined the team. A classic black and white 35mm still photographer helped to further refine Last Wave's post cinema aesthetic.
Through its frequent collaboration with local filmmakers and artists, Last Wave has developed a sharp understanding of film mechanics while honing their sensibilities. Last Wave films are both experimental and masterful, brutal and subtly poetic, primal and incredibly erudite.
Last wave is an anomaly. The enfant terrible of the new American film scene.
