Snaps from our Directors Lounge screening with Dagie Brundert curated by Klaus W. Eisenlohr
Dagie Brundert makes films like singer-songwriters compose songs: with an almost weekly regularity, inspired by the small occurrences of everyday life and always blended with the joys of life and with her own charm. For the artist, who has committed herself mostly to super-8 film, simplicity is a must. Simplicity of means, low budget in production and improvised settings.
It is no wonder that she would discover caffenol and other natural ingredients for her filmmaking, i.e. for the development of her films – often in combination with expired Super-8 films, some of which have been of stock for many years.
