Short film : THE FIRST DAY – Barnaby Roper by Saint Louis Post House Paris

3. Sixty-three years ago today, Elizabeth Eckford was one of nine black students to further the civil rights movement by enrolling at the historically segregated Central High in Little Rock, Arkansas. The historic images of her courageously walking through an enraged mob of white students, teachers and parents, have been burned into the collective consciousness of activists for equality around the world.
The First Day, which was performed by Kendie Jones, is a dance interpretation of Eckford’s walk that day. Its monochrome aesthetic is an evocative nod towards the black-and-white images of Eckford’s public ordeal, which was captured by press photographers and republished in papers internationally.

The main point here was to give life to that historical moment in a modern way. We manage to keep that as a sequence-shot, matching all the passes together and creating those particle effects. It was important for us to feel the interaction between the girl and the particles. We tried to make something simple but smooth with a touch of sensitivity.
