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.

“Directors Lounge started in 2005 as an experiment, a relaxed space for filmmakers, video artists and everybody interested in experimental forms of cinema and video art, during The Berlin International Film Festival.”
(source: Directors Lounge)

This video represents my impressions of the two nights I had been at the DL. Although the main focus of the DL are short movies, there is also a stage for live performances – live music as well as live music/video/installations.

I hope that the Directors Lounge, in its tenth year now, will go in its eleventh year in 2015 – I’ll be there, for sure. And I recommend this extraordinary event to all of you, who are interested in short films, long nights, great music and amazing artists live on stage.
