“All that generation were looking for a miracle” – Evgeny Tsymbal, assistant director, Stalker, interviewed by Louise and Sean in Moscow, 2016
* All Invited // Free Entry
This event Tarkovky: Cinema of Dreams celebrates the launch of the website-archive behind the making of Louise Milne and Sean Martin’s feature length documentary of this title. There will be screenings of video interviews with key persons, and a presentation of working transcripts of the interviews.
The event will include several screenings of new artist films, with a Q&A with the artists, featuring very special guest Nazare Soares (Norway) who will be presenting her film Omen (2016).
Do you love the great director Andrei Tarkovsky? Would you like to learn more about his life from those who worked with him, who continue to write about him, and who continue to celebrate the influence of his life and work?
At this event, celebrate on-going international collaborations in artist films, and the cross-cultural legacy defined by Tarkovsky and those of his generation.
As part of the programming team of Alchemy Film 2018 I’ll be moderating and having a discussion with artist Katharine Fry, Giuseppe Boccassini, Louise Milne, Rhona Mühlebach, and Ben Pointeker. Films are part of the Programme ‘Other Voices ‘

MAIN AUDITORIUM – HEART OF HAWICK
Spoken word and image collide through a typewriter, film consciousness, and a story of failed execution in Olly Olly Oxen Free. In Creepers, a headless body inhales and exhales the language of animals, as if possessed by animism. Debris presents us with a fever dream of energised fragmentary film, a travelogue of a shipwreck. In Eidolon, the dream deepens into three overlapping magical nightmares, apparitions and ghosts. Linguistic divisions evaporate as a conversation with a drug-taking crow ensures in To get in touch with crows. In Onward Lossless Follows, the stars won’t help you but a horse with no name might, permeated with stranger-danger. Words, memory and meaning dissolve entirely in playful defiance of language itself within Dit Learn. A quiet and dreamlike harmony is restored through a visual poetry of being and shadows in Impassenger.
* Katharine Fry, Giuseppe Boccassini, Louise Milne, Rhona Mühlebach, and Ben Pointeker will be present for a Q&A.

Zgodna, mlada glumica Sali Oâ€™Hara dolazi sa svojom amaterskom trupom u Monteblanski pandan crnogorskog Cetinja â€“ Kastelano. Tu zapada za oko obojici prijestonaslednika, Danilu i Mirku.
Ljubavne spletke vladajuÄ‡e elite i prateÄ‡e intrige navodno je trebalo da iskarikiraju Crnogorce.Â Potomci knjaÅ¾evske loze iz Crne Gore, pobunili su se i 1930. god. dobili sudsko poravnanje od 4000 dolara i garanciju da se Danilova postojbina neÄ‡e zvati Monte Blanko veÄ‡ MarÅ¡ovija. Nominalno u filmu se nigde ne pominje â€žMontenegroâ€ veÄ‡ imaginarni â€žMonte Blancoâ€ ali su i pored ove provizorne permutacije imena izdanaka kraljevske loze: Milena, Mirko, Nikola, Danilo, noÅ¡nje i opÅ¡ti kontekst viÅ¡e nego indikativni. Tako ovaj film, koji je privukao ogroman broj gledalaca i imao znaÄajan prihod, nisu imali priliku da vide gledaoci u naÅ¡im krajevima.
U ovom raskoÅ¡no produciranom filmu (setove radio reÅ¾iser najboljeg Tarzana sa Vajsmilerom â€“ Sedrik Gibons) meÄ‘u statistima se pojavljuje i buduÄ‡i superstar Klark Gejbl.
Film se zasniva na istoimenoj opereti Franza Lehara i ovo je njena druga filmska adaptacija.Â
Ulaz za sve projekcije je slobodanÂ
Festival su podrÅ¾ali: Ministarstvo kulture Crne Gore i Sekretarijat za kulturu i sport Â Glavnog grada
Commissioned work made for music project Galgo. The material is from one of my first ever film works; Through a Glass, Darkly (2011 ) https://www.facebook.com/GALGOBAND/
AquÃ os dejamos el teaser realizado para Galgo, por la artista visualÂ Nazare Soares.
El tema se llama Halley y estarÃ¡ incluido en nuestro primer disco, que verÃ¡Â la luz este mismo mes y que estaremos presentando este sÃ¡bado (11 de noviembre) en laÂ Colegiata de San Juan Bautista, junto a nuestros compaÃ±eros de selloÂ CICADA.
â€œWhen she does not find love, she may find poetry. Because she does not act, she observes, she feels, she records; a color, a smile awakens profound echoes within her; her destiny is outside her, scattered in cities already built, on the faces of men already marked by life, she makes contact, she relishes with passion and yet in a manner more detached, more free, than that of a young man. Being poorly integrated in the universe of humanity and hardly able to adapt herself therein, she, like the child, is able to see it objectively; instead of being interested solely in her grasp on things, she looks for their significance; she catches their special outlines, their unexpected metamorphoses. She rarely feels a bold creativeness, and usually she lacks the technique of self-expression; but in her conversation, her letters, her literary essays, her sketches, she manifests an original sensitivity. The young girl throws herself into things with ardor, because she is not yet deprived of her transcendence; and the fact that she accomplishes nothing, that she is nothing, will make her impulses only the more passionate. Empty and unlimited, she seeks from within her nothingness to attain All.â€
