“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 ‘

FRIDAY 4 MAY
11:50am – 1:30pm
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

Last night, Other Cinema hosted a gathering of witches, both embodied and bound in celluloid. The night began with a brewing of cups by the Church of Color and Light, a local ritualistic performance collective that uses overhead projection, dance movement, and incantation for audience involvement and transformation. One slithering spirit even abandoned a rubber snake in my lap. Soundtracked by the buzzing of flies, their cultus ceremony set tone for a spooky evening with intermittent camera flashes punctuating the dark.
Cohesively curated experimental film and video from past iterations of the Häxän Festival filled the remainder of the evening’s program. Häxän celebrates witchcraft and the personal occult from a feminine perspective, with all works curated and made by women. The program was strong yet scrappy, with a generous dose of silence and nudity. A couple of pieces veered too close to the works of experimental film great Maya Deren (unsurprisingly) and animator Lewis Klahr, to be truly original. But the lovely, ghostly Trapped Between Frames by Nazare Soares seemed outright possessed with its multi-exposed film frames trembling and twitching
My stereoscopic film Trapped Between Frames will be shown on the 29th of October at Artist Television Access in San Francisco as part of HÄXÄN project:
After 2 epic Autumns in the East Bay, the Haxan Project now sets up stakes in the Mission, to initiate a Big-City audience into its irresistible cycle of wicca-ed cinema, with a tent-full of works—all women-made—capped by a provocative live performance! Curators Courtney Fellion, Phaedra Restad, and Hannah Schulman have hand-picked the very best work from their wildly creative coven, including transformative pieces from Gina Basso, Karissa Hahn, Leslie Supnet, Sarah Rooney, Natalie Tsui, Nazar Soares, Laura Conway, Lili White, and Julia Triangular—all to be consummated in the rites of the Church of Color and Light, whose overhead projections and hypnotic incantations promise a path to thee metaphysical via our beloved smoke machine! Free mulled wine.
‘Trapped Between Frames ‘ will be screened in DOBRA Film Festival in Rio de Janeiro on 3rd of September 21 h at Cinemateca MAM/RJ, part of O Oculto Pessoal, a special program curated by HÄXÄN Festival.
