2019 • Smith & Lee
Vimeo Staff Pick

Recently, there have been a few pieces that feel like a blast from the past mixed with a contemporary approach and sensibility that are timeless and refreshing.

Textless, the new film by Smith and Lee, the same husband and wife duo that brought us the terrific Juno & Up in the Air titles, is just one of these films. It explores a simple idea through various mediums, techniques, and tools all combined with amazing execution.

It’s exactly what it needs to be, no more, no less, and lives in its own space.
