Synopsis: Jumper tells the story of a bourgeois European family whose lives are invaded by an enigmatic visitor. Set within a 20th century modern villa, his presence creates an unnerving effect. Inspired by David Hockney’s ‘swimming pool series’ and the 1968 Pier Paolo Pasolini’s film ‘Teorema’, Saunders’ signature use of color runs as a theme throughout from the deep blue of the water to the piercing green of the grass through to the actual clothes themselves. Everyday objects are used as accessories, and the actors are clothed in key Jonathan Saunders pieces.
Jumper was Screened at VAEFF 2017 as part of Fashion Film – The New Wave program curated by Niccolo Montanari
