To celebrate 25 years of the New Directors’ Showcase, Saatchi & Saatchi have invited 25 NDS alumni to create 25×25: an experiment in film, which will be premiered in Cannes on Thursday 25 June.  Leading up to the film’s premier in Cannes, one of the 25×25 directors will be revealed each day, along with their original film from the NDS archive.

Featured today is Antoine Bardou-Jacquet ‘The Child’ which delivers a high-speed chase through the streets of New York City with both landmarks and people rendered as all text, here a picture has been painted by a 1,000 words (or more).  Well worth a look, head over to the New Directors Showcase now.
