synopsis

The audiovisual essay explores the Danish part of Jutland from the view of both a living eye and an inanimate object.

puddles, I don’t know
Dry ground, gravel, cracks in the asphalt, a look into a microscope, and a weather map as parts of an associative string based on the theme of waiting for the rain. The visual poem shows the soil in close-ups, adding new visual and semantic layers.

Water Pure Azure
People’s limited view of the world often places the human perspective above the natural cycles.

Extraction
A metaphorical reflection on social exclusion using the participation method reveals the relationship between young Ukrainian Elizaveta and her mother, a dentist. A gritty analogy of an extracted tooth, social essentials, and spiritual purity play out on the screen as a conflict of alienating details and an intimate tableau of family life.

The Colonel’s Photograph
Excerpts from a television interview with Eugène Ionesco in an adaptation of his absurd story The Colonel’s Photograph, which is dominated by the motif of a swimming pool that conceals drowned bodies. The visual pun is a compilation of techniques: animation, video, 3D graphics, and text, which give the seemingly random scenes a sort of structure.

Hoax
A flying saucer floats through the sky in black and white, creating the illusion of alien forces; upon taking a closer look, it’s obvious that it’s just a toy. The filmmaker examines the issue of videos spreading untruthful alarm messages using the same principles, highlighting the fine line between fact and fiction.

Wet Wedding
Behind the curtain of the film strip the concreteness of images appears and disappears again with varying levels of visuals shifts and deformations. The sounds of the film’s movement mix with voices that give the scenes context but nevertheless prevent a reconstruction of the fable. – The story dissolves, and during this layering we move further away from it ever being one.

Canis Lupus
Canis lupus, or the grey wolf, may be altered into the family dog by adding the attribute familiaris to its generic name. This experimental film brings out parallels between the aggressive nature of the wild beast and humans with the author eliminating soundtrack, building up his reflections using 3D animations combined with a written monologue told by invisible narrator.

Operation Urban Warrior
Anthony Bird is a war veteran who was the sole survivor of a military operation in his unit. His memories are as surreal as the animation which simulates the course of the incident in the form of a computer game. Everything looks flat but we must trust our own sensees which tell us that in reality, the world isn't flat.
