We are pleased to invite you to an extraordinary event accompanying the 20th Forum of European Cinema ORLEN Cinergia, which will take place on November 27 at the music club-restaurant-art gallery Lokal. The attendees will be able to watch a screening of the film Nuntius, accompanied by a live concert given by legendary figures on the electronic music scene: Jimi Tenor and Jori Hulkkonen. The event will take place as part of the Polish Original Film Song Competition KamerTon, as well as part of the celebrations of Finnish Days in Łódź. This year an entire section of the Forum of European Cinema ORLEN Cinergia will be devoted to Finnish cinema.
Nuntius is a 60 min film starring the Finnish futurist actor Mr Normall. The film is exclusively shown with live sound performed by electronic music maestros Jimi Tenor and Jori Hulkkonen. This film is an event that one must experience live in person. One cannot stream it or watch in YouTube.
Nuntius is a futuristic road-movie, shot in 2014 around Finland. In the spirit of Godard the film didn´t have a script and the story came about via improvisation. It is in effect a silent movie. Tenor and Hulkkonen were inspired by silent films such as Chien D’Andalou, Nosferatu and Metropolis. Other inspirations from more modern film making would be Eisenstein’s Ivan the Terrible, Tarkovski’s Solaris and Kubrik’s Space Odyssey 2001.
Following the screening and the concert there will be two more performances: by the producer from Łódź Capitan Commodore and by the cofounder of the diskollektive collective DJ Mmx. There will also be live video by mac.umatic. Admission to the concert and to the party is free.
