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
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/
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.
“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

( 2,2 ) 0 is taking part in a day seminar on Technoshamanism in Aarhus, Denmark , on the 12th August – rethink ancestrality and technology. Amalia Fonfara will talk about ( 2,2 ) 0 and we will give a workshop on methodologies and techniques applied in the production of the invisible drum.
On August 12, 2017 from 14:00 to 22:00 there will be a technoshamanism meeting in Dome of Visions, Aarhus.
The purpose of the meeting is to unite people who are interested in the combination of DIY technologies such as free software and permaculture with ancestral, ancestorfuturist and shamanistic practices. We are calling all the cyborgs, witches, heretics, technoshamans, programmers, hackers, artists, alchemists, thinkers and everyone who might be curious to join us and explore the possiblities of combining ancestral and indigenous worldviews with the looming disasters of the anthropocene.
If you feel attracted by the combination of these terms, techno + shamanism and ancestrality + futurism and if you’re worried about the destruction of the Earth and the hegemony of capital and neoliberal ontologies, this event is for you. In view of Aarhus’ slogan as European Cultural Capital of 2017, the theme of this event could be: Rethink ancestrality and technology!

Showing final work from two years Master programme at Trondheim Academy of Art, Thesis Exhibition at TKM Gråmølna & Lademoen Kunstnerverksted, Trondheim. The work Prelude (2,2) 0 and ( 2,2) 0 are the outcome of my ongoing study When The Spell is Broken, rooted in the etymology of kinema and topos. The research explores a meta-critique of sight perception in relation to virtual, real and imaginary spaces.Taking the structure of a (2,2) mode shamanic drum as a reference, the artwork explores the possibility for re-combinations and simultaneities of the real-and-imagined. It offers a geo-narrative where imagination is activated in a topological way by connecting two venues in Trondheim; Lademoen Kunstnerverksteder & Gråmølna Kunstmuseum. The hybrid spaces present the use of technology and its relation to knowledge, through systems and languages found in techno-animism, cinema and hauntology practices.

Exit is a graduation exhibition of 16 artists who have developed their individual practices while attending the International MFA program at Kunstakademiet i Trondheim | Trondheim Academy of Fine Art. The exhibition presents what the artists have been working on over the past two years which will reflect a diversity of artistic strategies and approaches towards a broad range of subjects. The exhibition will take place in TKM Gråmølna, Gallery KiT and Lademoen Kunstnerverksted.
If one were to walk through the labyrinth of the art academy, one might encounter a network of artistic laboratories whose borders are defined by ad-hoc assemblages of curtains and sliding doors. Entering each space is entering a microcosm of artistic experimentation guided by open-ended questions—or not necessarily questions—but rather urges, twitches. To inhabit the urge, and succumb to the twitch is a temporary, and potentially anxiety-producing, loss of self, of getting lost: the conjuring of streams of proposals and propositions that perhaps remain forever hidden; hours of energy and labor spent trying to arrive at a ‘discourse’; intersubjective perception. Is it within these spasms and movements that art has the potential to produce new knowledge? And what kind of knowledge?
These questions have been part of vibrant discussions within the class and the institution, and the exhibition engages and reflects on them.
The exhibition opens on May 21st at 13.00 in TKM Gråmølna, Gallery KiT and Lademoen Kunstnerverksted.

I am happy to announce the premiere of my recent film installation OMEN will be hosted by Alchemy Film & Moving Image Festival in Hawick, Scotland. The event will take place from 2nd till 6th of March 2017. Full Programme here:
Over 60 filmmakers and artists from around the world will be landing in Hawick on March 2nd for the seventh edition of Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival. Screening over 120 films at Hawick’s Tower Mill, with 23 world premieres, 12 moving image installations around the town, expanded cinema performances and a filmmaker symposium, Alchemy promises to transform Hawick into a melting pot of creativity for some of the world’s most imaginative moving image artists.
Highlights include the Scottish premiere of Rachel Maclean’s It’s What’s Inside That Counts. Maclean has been chosen to represent Scotland at the Venice Biennale in …2017, in a major new exhibition curated by Alchemy Film & Arts. Her work powerfully satirises the fears and desires of our contemporary zeitgeist, cloaked in a super-saturated aesthetic of fairy-tale consumer culture. Maclean will be present for a Q&A, discussing the evolution of her work and the themes of her new Venice commission.
Another sprinkling of Venetian magic comes from Alchemy’s tribute to the late John Berger, the Booker-prize-winning author of Ways of Seeing. In a special screening of his 1989 film Play Me Something, also featuring Tilda Swinton and Margaret Bennett, Berger narrates a politicised Venetian romance between a farm worker and a young bohemian woman, to a bemused waiting room of misfits in a desolate aiport lounge on the Scottish island of Barra. Directed by Tim Neat, present for a Q&A.
In perhaps the World’s first ever surrealist experimental opera-musical, the UK premiere of Warsaw-based Karolina Bregula’s The Tower, follows the fate of a group of well-meaning community activists who decide that the solution to their social problems lies in building an enormous tower of sugar. With music by Glasgow based Ela Orleans, their utopian dreams inevitably lead toward more dystopian realities.
Expanding the festival’s ethos of conversational encounter into a fifth day, British artist Andrew Kötting will lead a raggle-taggle eight mile procession of artists and miscreants towards the Hermitage Castle and the spectral vision that is Mary Queen of Scots. Reuniting the ghosts of King Harold and his hand fast wife Edith Swan Neck, Kötting’s film-walk culminates in a screening of Edith Walks at Hermitage Hall.
For the closing film, Alchemy hosts the European premiere of Incident Reports by Canadian auteur Mike Hoolboom. An episodic love letter to an unseen therapist, Hoolboom’s film is a luminous celebration of humanity, traversing memory, forgetting, image making and gender identity, while touching the heart of what it is to be in the world. It is an essay film that leads us joyfully to an ultimately life affirming conclusion: “Loving would be easy if your colours were like my dreams: Red, gold, and green.”
As part of Open Art Academy I am showing a film installation , OMEN is shown in the Black Box at Gallery Kit, Opening today Friday 11 November at 6pm .
