Alchemy Film Festival ; OTHER VOICES Programme on Friday 4th of May @ HEART OF HAWICK, Scotland

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 ‘


Screenhot. Derbis by Giuseppe Boccassini

11:50am – 1:30pm

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 O’Hara dolazi sa svojom amaterskom trupom u Monteblanski pandan crnogorskog Cetinja – Kastelano. Tu zapada za oko obojici prijestonaslednika, Danilu i Mirku.

Ljubavne spletke vladajuće elite i prateće intrige navodno je trebalo da iskarikiraju Crnogorce.  Potomci knjaževske loze iz Crne Gore, pobunili su se i 1930. god. dobili sudsko poravnanje od 4000 dolara i garanciju da se Danilova postojbina neće zvati Monte Blanko već Maršovija. Nominalno u filmu se nigde ne pominje „Montenegro” već imaginarni „Monte Blanco” ali su i pored ove provizorne permutacije imena izdanaka kraljevske loze: Milena, Mirko, Nikola, Danilo, nošnje i opšti kontekst više nego indikativni. Tako ovaj film, koji je privukao ogroman broj gledalaca i imao značajan prihod, nisu imali priliku da vide gledaoci u našim krajevima.

U ovom raskošno produciranom filmu (setove radio režiser najboljeg Tarzana sa Vajsmilerom – Sedrik Gibons) među statistima se pojavljuje i budući superstar Klark Gejbl.

Film se zasniva na istoimenoj opereti Franza Lehara i ovo je njena druga filmska adaptacija. 

Ulaz za sve projekcije je slobodan 

Festival su podržali: Ministarstvo kulture Crne Gore i Sekretarijat za kulturu i sport  Glavnog grada

HALLEY by GALGO ( teaser )

Commissioned work made for music project Galgo. The material is from one of my first ever film works; Through a Glass, Darkly (2011 )

Aquí os dejamos el teaser realizado para Galgo, por la artista visual Nazare Soares.
El tema se llama Halley y estará incluido en nuestro primer disco, que verá la luz este mismo mes y que estaremos presentando este sábado (11 de noviembre) en la Colegiata de San Juan Bautista, junto a nuestros compañeros de sello CICADA.

GALGO ( teaser ) HALLEY from Nazare Soares on Vimeo.

“When 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.”
― Simone de Beauvoir, The Second Sex
