LomoKino Short Film 'L’eternité (Eternity)' Screens in European Film Festivals

2

"L’eternité (Eternity)" by Patrick Müller (@pmueller) finally makes it from the Lomography community to a couple of Europe's well-known film festivals!

Last month saw the exhibition of the film poem “L’eternité (Eternity)” by previous LomoKino LomoAmigo *Patrick Müller* (a.k.a. *pmueller*) at the *12th International Signes de Nuit* held at Berlin’s Babylon Cinema. In an e-mail to Lomography, Müller said that “Eternity” was included in the out-of-competition section Deutsche Irrlichter (short films from Germany) along with seven others.

“Eternity,” which was selected after Müller sent it to the festival via the online platform Reelport, will also be screened in Paris when Signes de Nuit goes there this December.

“They [Signes de Nuit] [were] looking for films from all over the world that take a fresh look on critical situations (from a social, political, emotional, existential perspective) and that are interested in the current cultural and technological changes, and surprise in their innovative form of making. Breaks and changes were the subject of my LomoKino film, so my film fitted in quite well,” he added at length.

Recalling his experience, Müller said, “It was exciting to see my little film on the big screen. And because the film is silent, it was nice to hear the audience react in a full movie theater. My film was the only silent contribution and it worked quite well on the big screen.”

As for aspiring filmmakers, Müller volunteered one advice: “I encourage all filmmakers to try to show their films in public. For a good film, you only need a capturing idea and a camera.”

After Signes de Nuit, “Eternity” is scheduled to be screened at the *12th Matsalu Nature Film Festival* in Estonia to be held in September 17-21, 2014. Meanwhile, one of his other short films, Melancholia, will also be showcased at the Zebra Poetry Film Festival in Berlin in October.

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Amazon

    It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.

    Happenings on Film: Photographia Project

    Last year I took part in Photographia, a project that encouraged the use of cameras from the volt of Museu da Imagem em Movimento (M|i|mo). The gear collection used to belong to a well-known Portuguese TV channel (RTP) and some professional photographers. The cameras hadn’t been used since they were donated to the museum—until the launch of Photographia.

    Meet our LomoGuru: zulupt

    Aside from being an immensely talented lomographer, what makes him a perfect LomoGuru is his burning desire to share his knowledge. The city where he lives is full of people who are interested in analog photography, but the lack of easy access to film and equipment poses a challenge for them to pursue their passion. To keep them motivated, Hugo organizes workshops and tours on different film photography techniques and DIY tricks. Let's give a loud round of applause to Hugo Pereira, better known in the community as zulupt, our LomoGuru from Marinha Grande, Portugal!
