Allegro Lambda

"Allegro Lambda" continues the attempt to give the otherwise basically two-dimensional, flat style of the so-called "Cameraless Film" a spatiality. The scratched shapes and painted color gradients create a three-dimensional space with the help of digital montage and coloration: handmade pictures in the context of a digital arrangement. This aspect is taken up in the music level, in that the material consciously moves between analogue-acoustic and digital sound worlds.

At the double level, this creates an independent overall composition that turns a supposed experiment into an unmistakable observation that goes beyond purely technical awareness. It is an interplay of audible and visible elements, in which one believes to recognize leitmotifs and yet is always led on new paths.

Director Biography - Miriam Endrulat

Miriam Endrulat (born 1988) lives and works in Hamburg. In Sommer 2019 she completed her Master of Fine Arts at the College of Fine Arts in Hamburg. Her work includes painting and film as well as graphics. In her abstract films, she unites these artistic disciplines and constantly enters into collaborations with audio artists and composers. Her work is integrated into the old tradition of absolute film. Regular lectures on the history of abstract film and the positioning of one's own artistic work in this art-historical context are just as strong a part as the presentation of the practical work in the exhibition and cinema context. In october 2018 her film Wiltion Zur reworked was invited to the Punto y Raya Festival. In 2019 at the Flimmerfest in Hamburg she won the prize in the category experimental film and was curated on the New German Animation DVD of the AG Short Film.
Currently, Endrulat is directing a Cameraless Film Workshop at the College of Fine Arts in Hamburg.
