Experiencing Interruptions?

Somewhere Else and Yet Always Here

A film that could be called a diary, a notebook or a journal. A collage composed of small daily events, documented spontaneously as they occurred. As the work progresses these individual observations start to interlink in order to create a new kind of mosaic, constructed of images, recollections, voices and sounds. Eventually the film grows into richly coloured portrait of ongoing everyday life, somehow familiar yet elusive at the same time.

Director Biography - Panu Johansson

I am a contemporary artist and an experimental filmmaker from Finland. The medias I mostly work with are moving image and sound. My works have been screened in various festivals, exhibitions and microcinemas since the year 2000. When working with moving images, I prefer analogue film, tough I am open to all materials. I collect images and sounds eagerly and also like to use "found footage” materials whenever possible. In addition, I produce the audio tracks for my films myself. Some important influences and reoccurring themes in my work are the history of avant-garde/experimental film, but also cultural history in general. When describing my work shortly I usually use terms such as landscape film, diary film or personal film.
