Dutch premieres

During AWL_033 we will screen two previews of films that will be part of FIELD RECORDINGS 2 in November. At first glance, both films couldn’t be more different, but in fact, they’re both highly representative of the type of films we will present in November. Both films will have their Dutch premiere at AWL / FIELD RECORDINGS.

A cross-generational binding of three filmmakers seeking alternative possibilities to power structures they’re inherently part of. The film grew out of abandoned film projects of Maya Deren and Barbara Hammer. Shot at the furthest point of a motorcycle trip Hammer took to Guatemala in 1975, and laced through with Deren’s reflections of failure, encounter and initiation in 1950s Haiti.

A vever is a symbolic drawing used in Haitian Voodoo to invoke a Loa, or god.

 Li works nights and sleeps during the day. When he gets home, his roommate is just waking up. They have set up an improvised place to stay in a derelict building without windows in a Beijing expanding in all directions. From Tomorrow On, I Will is an intimate and alienating portrait China’s capital, orienting entrancing public spaces and the minutiae of everyday life towards each other.

Drie filmmakers, drie generaties, alledrie op zoek naar alternatieven voor de machtsstructuren waarvan ze ook zelf onherroepelijk deel uitmaken. Aan de basis van de film staan afgewezen filmprojecten van de befaamde filmmakers Maya Deren en Barbara Hammer. ‘Vever’ verwijst naar het symbool uit de voodoo in Haiti, waarmee de Loa, ofwel God, wordt aangeroepen.
