SulmonaCinema

We are very proud, after the premiere in Venice (as surprise film in Corto Cortissimo), to attend the film festival SulmonaCinema in the earthquake-hit town Sulmona in Abruzzo with George Clooney: he will get a "silver Ovidius" for his career and we'll get a special presentation of "The It.Aliens".

The press conference will be held on the following Friday.

Unser neuer Film, The It.Aliens (erster Teil) ist nach der überraschenden Einladung an die Mostra in Venedig von vielen Festivals gefragt. Details später.

Vielen Dank an Peppe Strappini dass er sich fürs Plakat zur Verfügung gestellt hat. Es kann als Flyer heruntergeladen werden.

Vielleicht drehen wir einen Teil zwei.

And the hollandish TV DOC will broadcast it as well.

If everything works as planned, Lukas and Clemens will be shooting three shorts this summer:

  • Eine nachtlang Filmgilde” a tribute to 60 years of Film Guild in Biel,
  • Jean-Jaques meets Henri” for the 300th birthday of Jean Jacques Rousseau, surprisingly meeting Henri Rousseau “le douanier” on the island of Biel,
  • and then a bonus-movie clip about the town itself.

Two new novels by Clemens are being published:
“Die Leichtigkeit des Schweins”, 285 pages
and
“Zucker und Salz”, 290 pages.

We are very pleased that ubu.com (an online collection of the most important experimental movies) now also includes “Geschichte der Nacht” (Story of the night).

You can watch the movie here. It's way prettier in a cinema, though.

Die Montage beginnt nach den Prüfungen von Lukas an der SUPSI und könnte sich wegen der RS auch etwas verzögern...
