Interiors – Up

Interiors is an online journal, published on the 15th of each month, in which films are analyzed and diagrammed in terms of space. Interiors focuses on how space is used throughout a particular scene and how the architecture of the film impacts its narratives and characters. Check them out at FacebookTwitterEtsyand download the magazine at Issuu
Up consists of various visual metaphors – including the notion that the protagonist attaches balloons onto his house and flies to the skies, visualizing his desire for reuniting with his deceased wife.

The house is the centerpiece of the film. The uniqueness of its architecture, coupled with the fact that husband and wife built the house together, results in the house in the film becoming a character in itself.

From Interiors Volume 15. Find out more about the journal here or see past issues here.
