2017 the humming loom of time. Feature Film, 67 min. P: mmmmmfilms. Germany, UK, Chile.

Directed by mmmmmfilms Adrian Fisher, Luna Montenegro, Ginès Olivares.


Taking its name from a line in 'The Golden Bough' by James Frazer 1922 abridged, the film weaves threads of migration, alchemy and folklore through elementary particles, in documentary, action and performance. An investigation into sites where Alchemists lived, worked or died looking for contemporary resonances within those localities. A psychogeographic process of encountering images, sounds and people celebrating serendipitous encounters. The soundtrack attempts to bleed a digital presence into these liquid landscapes touching nature and disappearing.

2017 multispecies offline. Short Film, 5 min. HD P: mmmmmfilms. Berlin, Germany
A you-tuber portal quickly transforms into a search for meaning through fictional and missing characters lost in different epochs of cinema trying to find an intra-species communality, a sense of the locality.
Exploring different modalities of social media, theatre, film noir, photography and overlay 'multispecies offline' is a film that considers our relations with the human and the non-human.
