Kersti Grunditz Brennan and Annika Boholm
BLOD – a Film Kaleidoscope
Thursday, 3rd June 2021
Montage principles applied to content, aesthetics and collaboration in cinematic storytelling. Two researchers sharing all cinematic practices, aiming to tell multifaceted, non-exploitive stories of womb-related states of life and death rarely depicted in cinema, while inviting active audience co-creation. Scenes are written as components of story threads with no predetermined order; staged and shot as written, then cut up and mixed, storylines intersected. The material is edited and reedited into different films in a variety of formats for screen and stage.
An exploration of conditions for improvisation, multiple perspectives, unpredictability and fluidity of form.
Kersti Grunditz Brennan is assistant professor of film editing and PhD-candidate in film & media, MFA in choreography, Mills College, CA on a Fulbright scholarship, renowned film editor and documentary filmmaker.
