JIM LONGDEN featured in Vogue Italia

21 year-old Jim Longden‘s debut film, ‘To Erase a Cloud’, continues to generate attention – here is the most recent article from Vogue Italia.

“Grief. Sorrow. Isolation. Three words that encapsulate the tone of last year and have been crystallised in ‘To Erase A Cloud’ – the directorial debut of 21-year-old former Comme des Garçon model-turned-filmmaker Jim Longden.

The film trails the life of John Little: a young man whose inner demons surface whilst living alone in isolation, when his mother passes away. Played by Longden’s best friend, London-born model-turned-poet 22-year-old Sonny Hall, ‘To Erase A Cloud’ is, to put it simply: bleak but weighted by poetry.”
