The Length

director: Iván Torres Hdez
original title: The Length
country: Finland
year: 2014
running time: 12 min.


Following an introductory trumpet solo and audience applause, we enter into the large home and thoughts of the now-deceased jazz legend Ted Curson, a brilliant trumpeter and composer. This cinematic portrait, infused with an unobtrusive and tangible sense of intimacy, uses imaginative static shots to frame the contemplations of a burly man who is short on time.  

Through a crack in the door, the camera films a wide range of emotions that are reflected in the old man‘s face as he plays with closed eyes. His hair is gray and his body bent, but just like his home, he too possesses many rooms filled with light.


Iván Torres Hdez is a documentarian and audiovisual artist living in Helsinki and Berlin. His main focus is on experimental film, audio and media installations, and performances. His projects are based on documentary approaches and fiction, and on the search for new ways of developing the story in a multidisciplinary form. His music videos are visually attractive as well, for instance the one for James Yorkston’s single Mary Connaught & James O’Donnell.
