THE NEW BEGINNING
Summer Sounds: One Minute Film Festival (2010), screening "The New Beginning"
GO I KNOW NOT WHERE AND BRING BACK I KNOW NOT WHAT
The title for this experimental video is appropriated from a Russian folk tale. Through real life footage as well as visual effects with a large emphasis on color, the video unfolds as a metaphor for the journey and quest implied by the title.
The narrative structure of the film relies on research and study of mythopoetics, the structure of fables, folkloristics, psychological interpretations of fairy tales and morphology of folk tales. Materials for the film contain historical documentaries and videos shot in Russia, England, France, Mexico and United States.
In a video Olea Nova mixed fictional and documentary narratives. The emphasis is on rhythm, visual and formal relationships. However, there is no attempt to construct a conventional story. Olea Nova invits the viewers to create their own meanings as the video unfolds in time.
