LOOK INSIDE THE GHOST MACHINE (Péter Lichter / Hungary / 2012 / 4’) The first avant-garde filmmakers believed that cinema had the function of a machine, created to manage pure emotions.
NUTRITION FUGUE (Péter Lichter / Hungary / 2018 / 4’) 'Közért' (translation: 'for the public') was a chain of stores run by the government of Hungary during communism (1948-1989). The word 'közért' is still present in Hungarian. Our film was made with ads from these stores, their original 35mm films were decomposed and cut into pieces.
The aim of this unique experimental film workshop at Primanima Festival of First Animations is to get the participants acquainted with the technique of making a celluloid-based abstract film. During the workshop, the participants will work with 35 mm celluloid strips and colour them with different paints and felt tip markers. The strips used for the workshop have been buried in the ground and the procedure partially decomposed the images on them.
