Will Madden

Euphonia SXSW

Danny Madden‘s Euphonia is a love story between a boy and his digital recorder. It’s an experimental work with plot momentum that intensifies imagery through pristine, almost violently clear sound design. With moments of zen-like beauty and maddening disorientation, it might just be the most inventive coming of age story since Never Let Me Go. In the film, a high schooler (Will Madden) is desperately bored, crawling through his suburban existence and hating every minute of it. He trades clever notes with a cute classmate (Maria DeCortis), laments the lack of a good radio station and passes dull days with his friend (Benjamin Papac). On a whim, he starts recording everything with a digital mic, and while it lets him appreciate the smallest wonders in life, it also places a barrier between him and truly experiencing the world.
