The Underground Film Studio: An Interview in 12 Parts. Part 4: Experiential Cinema, Expanded Cinema and the Sacrificium Intellectus

by info on

 

Here’s Part 4 of our year long interview which is being conducted by Bradley Tuck as a part of our artist residency at Exploding Appendix.

 

In this installment we talk about the making of our 2012 film Sacrificium Intellectus, as well as exploring some ideas relating to our expanded cinema projects, Phantom Films, the language of gesture, embodiment, religion, the tarot and our personal philosophy of cinema:

 

“The film is most rewarding when one simply lets go and drifts in the fluctuating sea of sounds and images, becoming conscious of your breath, the pumping of blood and the beat of one’s heart. You could say that we are drawing attention to a way of being conscious that is not only about being intellectually engaged, one can also be conscious of things through one’s intuition, one’s physical sensations and feelings.”

 

“Nothing in cinema is actual (other than the actual presence of light), it is all illusion but its effect is very real, the experience of viewing the fantasy creates a reality.”
