The Festival of Color

Festival of Color

Kasia Cieplak-Mayr von Baldegg reports for The Atlantic:

Thousands of Hindus celebrate the spring festival of Holi by throwing tinted powder and perfume on each other — creating a breathtaking hypercolor frenzy. Filmmakers at the production company Variable decided to capture the event with a Phantom Flex, a high-speed camera that can record upwards of 10,000 frames per second. Suspending these moments in time, they want viewers to realize that “the fast paced lifestyles of our generation result in many not taking the necessary step back to soak in the existing world around us.”

A beautifully crafted film to round off your Monday afternoon.
