You’ve seen me sing the praises of Ellis Faas’ makeup line, but today, I wanted to show you something else from the company.
This film is called “A Family Affair,” and features members of the Faas family. Ellis shot the film in her own house, using her brother, Thijs’, face as the canvas, while her daughter, Flavia, composed and recorded the accompanying music.
“As a late teenager, I visited the Tate Gallery in London and was blown away by a Francis Bacon triptych. It made a great impression on me because of the use of colour – it was unnerving and stunningly beautiful at the same time. Bacon inspired many experiments I did over the years. I now think it has become something of my own and hasn’t much to do with Bacon any more,” concludes Ellis Faas.
I must say, this is one talented family.
What do you think of the film?
