Film New Europe wrote a beautiful little article about our new project Obscur.
Thank you so much.
you first do your art with the ones you fuck with
then you do it and with the ones they fuck
and if lucky one of all these people has some money
or fucks some art dealer
or some critic
or some media mogul
or some royalty
and your art becomes art
from now on
please replace the word
with the word
you should start learning what you are
and quit trying to be what you want
my words are objects

is only for those that refuse organised religion, organised education and organised knowledge
organised working life, organised social life, organised love life
why is the body more important than the mind?
because the mind you can kill time and time again
the body only once
the body is closer and more attentive to experience and life, than the mind
the body is real
the mind is not
the body is silent
the mind is not
that is why I am so interested in the body and not in the mind
not in socials
they all flow out of body and our relationship with our own, and with the other’s Continue reading

I want to make this underground film and I need a little help to gather some money to pay for a space and for small rentals that I can’t convince people to help me out of revolutionary conviction or belief in our ideas and direction of film.
Could you help me with 2,3 euros please,

De ce film? Well, pentru ca filmul ramine intact in timp si se cumuleaza. Pentru ca este un instrument de schimbare culturala ffff puternic. Pentru ca este mai sincer ca fotografia si mai echilibrat emotional ca muzica. Filmul le include pe toate si contine acela minunata inventie – povestea. Inventie care este cumva exteriorizarea organica a unui holism interior. Emotional, traditional, genetic, reactiv, rational, cultural. Povestea ne ajuta sa impartasim experiente comune si sa le descoperim. Filmul ne ajuta sa vedem si sa constientizam.
Its not about a better more efficient and successful life. But about a more meaningful and open life.
What I am trying to learn, and what making films keeps on teaching me, is how to find, in what I don’t have, in what I can’t reach, the same reward and the same lessons and experiences as when you have all resources you need and desire, to achieve that inner universal revelations.
Step by step I understand that such a milestone, such an idyllic first doesn’t exist.
That what you don’t have is the same with what you have.
There is no redemption in the having the best.
There is no doom in not having.
Its all too simple and sincere to depend on outside conditions, circumstances, dynamics, threats, rewards or things.
All can be found in silence.
All can be shared in silence.
All can be revealed in silence.
I feel from time to time the need to explain my projects, I feel that people will understand me better if I talk to them personally 🙂
Now I talk a little about our new space where I want to explore some of my ideas, in a owned space, no more running around asking people for borrowing theirs.
And also about our film project Obscur – a +18 film that so many people are afraid of. I try to ease their minds and suspicions.
We are looking for a small financial support to make Apologia, a poetic non-commercial film in Bucharest. These money are for food and gas for our 10 days of filming, plane tickets for our international cast and rent for 2 of our locations and sound post-production.
Apologia – A multidimensional, multi existential story, about a mystical togetherness that is somehow broken and people have broken pieces in one another.
Please help us with our 3rd feature film. Films that we don’t use as products. Thank you.
Until now we’ve raised from amazing friends – 430 Euros out of the 3500 we need to start.
or try a qualiafilm membership
or our affiliate stores – all you buy from there will reroute a small percentage to our fundraising.
AMAZON, F64(ro), EMAG(ro)
I am thinking about creating meetings with people interested about making, collaborating, helping, knowing more about small indie films, underground, experimental, poetic…
or anything that can be called outside of mainstream cinema.
and a tumblr blog
and a newsletter
We are organizing a film night every Thursday in Bucharest at Plantelor 25
see about current film schedule on tumblr or facebook.
Organizam in fiecare Joi o seara de film necunoscut in Plantelor25 la etaj.
Am inceput cu filmul Le Orme si apoi Paganini lui Kinski, Fassbinder cu Despair si Catherine Breillat cu A Real Young Girl.
Unii dintre voi nu folositi facebook-ul unde avem un grup inchis pentru cei interesati de evenimentele noastre, asa ca am facut acest newsletter pentru a putea pastra contactul cu activitatile noastre.
Am scris CameraMica ca pe un scurt metraj, noua varianta a devenit o poveste mai acuta si mai complexa si pentru ca au intervenit povestile mai multor personaje si o dezvoltare a familiei Amaliei.
Las mai jos textul vechiului scenariu pe care se bazeaza cumva si cel nou.
Cavity or Amala’s Obsession
painting by sabinasuru
O papusa este disecata si in ea sint organe de om.
“Bucuresti the place of my nightmares.”
Amala si John se intorc in Bucuresti. Amala este romanca si s-a maritat cu John in Anglia si au si un copil mic. Amala revine in Romania pentru a-si vizita rudele cu micul ei copilas dar si pentru a incerca de al gasi pe Morven, marea marea ei dragoste de care s-a despartit foarte brusc si violent si din cauza careia a ramas cu niste foarte dureroase halucinatii si crize.
Vilho fratele ei mai mare si cu care are o relatie foarte intima dar si de ura reciproca ii spune ca Morven a murit.
La intilnirea cu parintii, o intilnire chinuita si falsa unde cu totii se chinuie sa fie normali desi nu pot. Unde tatal Amalei este un mare artist sculptor in adinca depresie care face mii si mii de pestisori de lemn de ani si ani de zile. Unde afla ca Om sora ei mai mare ii uraste pe toti si nu vrea sa ii mai vada. Amala lasa pe John si copilul acolo si pleaca pe neasteptatea.
Ajunge la blocul unde sta sora ei si desi Om ii spune si ea ca Morven este mort, si ca nu vrea sa o vada pe Amala. Amala se roaga de Om sa o lase sa stea la ea o vreme, cit il cauta pe Morven, fara sa stie nimeni. Aceasta accepta cu greu pentru ca Om este foarte chinuita in viata ei personala dar si a suferit mult la plecarea Amalei pentru ca Amala era cea mai buna si singura ei prietena in care se putea deschide si iubi complet.
Peste ele, in noapte apare Sinister, un partener al lui Vilho care ii spune Amalei ca defapt Morven traieste, dar ca si un mort. Sinister este trimit de Vilho pentru a o ajuta pe Amala sa treaca peste Morven, sa o ingrozeasca de cum a ajuns si cein a ajuns si sa se intoarca la familia ei. Continue reading
