The 400 Club Displays Toronto’s Elite Sensibilities

The 400 Club is a Shane Stirling film created as a preface to the 400 Club event series and part of a larger collection of micro-films.

The second chapter of this collection (the first chapter of this series is called Headliners), The 400 Club is only two minutes long but uses poignant camera work and an incredibly focused directorial vision to convey a story without any dialogue at all. Instead, simple moments and small gestures and expressions imply the underlying narrative of a young, well dressed, well groomed young man arriving at The Royal York Hotel to pick up his date for the evening. A simple, small smile from the man tells us his date is arriving in front of him. An understated nod to the driver lets both him and the audience know it’s time to leave.
