Sweet and Tender Mancunian - an audiovisual pastiche

"Sweet and Tender Mancunian - an audiovisual pastiche" is a collage short film, assembled with the challenge of juxtaposing scenes of varied origins and dramatic nuances - both authorial and third-party copyright free works - to emulate a specific discourse created by a certain English artist. Original songs and a dedicated edition deepen some of the most nerve-wracking themes of this artist's popular work. "The past is in the Pastiche. And the future is Bricolage" (excerpt from the short film)

Director Statement

Having worked with music and languages for most of my life (as a musician-teacher-writer), when I entered the sphere of film writing in 2011, I naturally did it via videopoetry. And, as I consider myself a chronicler in my music and literature, I naturally embraced the videopoetic chronicle. That's what I feel comfortable doing, and where I've been getting gentle reviews and honorable mentions, mainly in the field of contemplative film and minimalism. But when inspiration strikes what I really like is experimentalism without boundaries.
