MERLOT

I en blå eventyrskog mister en gretten bestemor en flaske vin. Denne hendelsen blir kimen til en kjede av hendelser: som en følge etableres en dialog, en morsom veksling mellom bilder og figurer, som vil lede til en uventet utvikling.

In a blue fairy-tale forest, a grumpy granny loses a bottle of wine. This event will give rise to a crescendo of linked events: consequently establishing a dialogue, a funny repartee between frames and characters, which will lead to an unexpected development.

SHOT

En film som forsøker å skape formell mening av meningsløs vold. Opptakene stammer fra hver eneste politiskyting de siste to årene der det finnes tilgjengelig video. Hver bit av opptakene er uredigert og koordinert - synkronisert til det første skuddet. Sluttresultatet er en uhyggelig bølge av opprørende terror og vold.

A film that tries to make formal sense out of senseless violence. Footage was found from every police shooting over the last two years for which there is available video. Each piece of footage is taken unedited, and aligned – synchronised to the moment of the first gunshot. The end result is an uncanny wave of terror, violence, and outrage.

Blant fragmentariske erindringer av vennskap og det sublime, utforsker to venner endrede prioriteter, som tester deres surrealistiske og impulsive reise. Når den ene utfordrer den andre forstår vi at deres virkelighet kanskje ikke er som den later å være.

IT WAS STILL HER FACE

Portretter av kvinner. Og menn som er fortryllet av dem. De malte portrettene, et tilbakevendende motiv i film noir samt i europeisk etterkrigsfilm, står i estetisk tradisjon med en gammeldags akademisk stil som streber etter å skape likhet med modellen. De er gjenferd, varsel på fravær, metaforer for bortgang og død, objekter for begjær og fiksering, som trollbinder både tilskueren i filmen og foran lerretet.

Portraits of women. And men, who are spellbound by them. The painted portraits – a recurring motif of film noir as well as European postwar cinema – stand in an aesthetic tradition of an outmoded academic style that is bent on striking likeness with the model. They are revenants, omens of absence, metaphors for loss and death, objects of desire and fixation, which mesmerize both the viewer in the movie and in front of the screen.

WHEN YOU AWAKE

“Hjernen er som et isfjell, den flyter med en sjuendedel av sitt omfang over vann” - Sigmund Freud. En uvitenskapelig og komisk studie av hva som skjer når to personer er hypnotisert, som leder inn i en oppkvikkende reise inn i underbevisstheten (oppbevaringsstedet for frykt, begjær, aggresjon, drømmer) hvor alle bilder, lyder og musikk er fra “found footage”.

'The mind is like an iceberg, it floats with one-seventh of its bulk above water.' –Sigmund Freud. An unscientific and comedic study of what happens when two people are hypnotized leading into an exhilarating journey into the unconscious mind (the repository for fears, desires, aggression, dreams) where all the images, sounds and music are from found footage.

IN THE WOODS (Ins Holz)

Snø, svette, testosteron og lyden av motorsager. Hvert fjerde år, over en periode på tre måneder om vinteren, kuttes skog på et bratt fjell høyt over Ägeri-sjøen og forberedes for tømmerfløting. Verken økonomiske endringer eller teknologi har kunnet erstatte dette tradisjonelle og bærekraftige håndverket i Sveits.

Snow, sweat, testosterone and the sound of chainsaws. Every four years, over a period of three moths in winter, wood is being cut in a steep mountain high above Lake Ägeri and prepared for log rafting. Neither economic change nor technology has been able to replace this traditional and sustainable craft in Switzerland.

EIGHTH CONTINENT

På øya Lesvos ligger en gammel, forlatt losseplass på et fjell med to store krater. Kraterne er overfylt av tusenvis av redningsvester fra bølgene av flyktninger. En arbeider er eneste beboer på dette stedet, et sted som ligner en utenomjordisk planet eller et nytt kontinent.

In Lesvos island an old abandoned dump lies on a mountain with two big craters. The craters are overflown by thousands of life jackets from the refugee waves. A worker is the only inhabitant in this place that resembles an alien planet or a new continent.

AMONG THE BLACK WAVES (Sredi Chernyh Voln)

Denne fortellingen er basert på en eldgammel nordisk legende om at sjelene til druknede mennesker forvandler seg til sjødyr. Jegeren stjeler seljentas hud, slik at hun ikke kan forvandles tilbake til et dyr. Hun blir hans kone, men hennes blikk er festet på sjøen.

This story is based on the ancient northern legend according to which the souls of the drowned people turn into sea animals. The Hunter steals the seal-girl’s skin. So she can’t turn back into an animal. She becomes his wife, but more often glances at the sea.

Script: Anna Budanova
