From This World To That Which Is To Come

From This World To That Which Is To Come is a feature length artist film co-directed and produced by Fritz Stolberg and Nissa Nishikawa. It was commissioned by the Jersey Arts Trust as a result of a community orientated artist residency on the island of Jersey. The film was shot on Super-16mm involving members of the island community in front and behind the camera alongside a small group of international friends. The research for the film is rooted in the folklore of the island while highlighting the voice of Nature and human's position within.

20min live multi-screen film projection by Fritz Stolberg with improvised music score by Kohhei Matsuda (Bo Ningen). THE MOON'S IMPOSSIBLE DREAM TO SHINE ITS OWN LIGHT takes its departure from the poetic notion that if the moon had a dream, it would be to switch off the sun forever to see if it can shine on its own. The nature of the piece being a live film-projection performance ties in with its content of the moon being the ultimate celestial projection screen. This project is the first instalment of a series of live film and sound events, which I recently started in collaboration with Kohhei Matsuda. The piece so far was presented as part of I Like Dalston And Dalston Likes Me, at the FARM:shop in Dalston (curated by Nissa Nishikawa) and at Analogue Recurring, Lo and Behold Gallery, Shoreditch (curated by David Leister and Bea Haut). Born from our conversations about improvisation and the interplay of chance within the creative process, we decided to start working on a series of live events that revolve around possibilities of improvising with the projection of moving image in relation to improvised soundscapes. In an attempt to gain a level of spontaneity in creating a freeform narrative, the existing vocabulary of experimental filmmaking is applied to 8mm archive footage (all of which to this point is my own footage) as it is running through several projectors by manipulating the strips of film by applying heat, chemicals, paint, scratches or feeding several strips of film through the projectors at once to create effects of super-imposition. Different prisms or filters are used in front of the projector lenses to add further sub-plots to the projected image. In this first part of the planned series, three 8mm projectors were used for the visual side and one electric guitar for the live audio. Every event sees the emergence of a unique film piece being made as a live performance.
