IN 10 YEARS: ILLUSION / ČEZ 10 LET: ILUZIJA from Valérie Wolf Gang on Vimeo.

Video by Valérie Wolf Gang

My role:
– assistance with setting

IN 10 YEARS: ILLUSION / ČEZ 10 LET: ILUZIJA is a video installation, where the scenery from the film becomes literally 3D and comes into the space. The whole room is dark and the smell of basement soon give us the feeling of a nightmare. When you step in, you see the button “PUSH: LET THE DREAM BEGIN!” and when you press it, the artificial fog enters the space and everything becomes dusty and foggy – like the real nightmare. Around the room you can spot different symbolic objects that influenced my life. You can also calculate your life span on the calculator or write me a real poem. Everyone that enters becomes part of the film, part of the nightmare. There’s no time, the clock is stopped, we’re trapped forever. The scull is watching us and we are watching the film on the big screen. The film is about future and expectation of society. What will happen in 10 years? Maybe it’s all just an illusion.

Venetian Connection – Making of from VŠU / Famul Stuart on Vimeo.

My role:

Film Festival Motovun
Museum of Slovenian Actors
European film week in Nova Gorica
Kino Dvor Mestni Kino

On one of the Venetian lagoon islands the Finotello familly is producing vegetables to deliver to fellow citizens, Elisabetta belongs to the third generation of flower sellers on the famous San Michele island cemetary; Moudu is a Nigerian immigrant who confides some tricks of the bag-selling trade to the film-makers, while Riccardo Bonini thought he knows everything about being a fireman before he came to work in Venice. We also meet two tree doctors and last but not least a gondolier, who wanted to break free from the family tradition but the calling tempted him back to Venice.

The omnibus Venetian Connection was made in the frame of the HiLoVv – Hidden Live(r)s of Venice educational project, which has been supported by the European Union in the form of a Lifelong Learning – Intensive Programmes grant. The leading partner of the project is University of Nova Gorica School of Arts.
After two months of research-based script development about the “Hidden Live(r)s of Venice”, on November 21 2011 students from three universities and several countries met in the floating city to produce 6 short documentaries about Venice, its interesting professions and personalities…, all under the mentorship of the renowned film director, professor Rajko Grlić.

Film Angelina (by Valérie Wolf Gang & MarijaLaura) was awarded for best short film in the TRADITIONS CATEGORY at Erasmus Film Festival (participation from students of all European countries).

My role:

“In 10 years” is a short film that shows how can moments in our lives impact us in the future.
And what will the future bring? In the days of globalization and overflow of information everything seems like a blank page. You can do whatever you want but you still have to watch out that you won’t fall of the page. What happens if you go over the edge of the page? Can you truly be free? This are the metaphors and the questions which young director Valérie Wolf Gang is interested in. It’s a field of life which she wants to discover and re-create like the fragments of our subconscious life.

Isaac Newton once said: “For every action there is always an equal and opposite reaction.” And that’s the rule of life.
