Back to Human Nature

Njutafilms och kulturpersonligheten Carl Abrahamsson presenterar det unika projektet ”Back to Human Nature!”, en samling uttrycksfulla verk av fem nordiska filmskapare som tolkar vår tids problematiska dynamik genom högst personliga och själfulla samtidsfiltreringar.

Olika konstnärer hanterar vår kulturs förapokalyptiska strömningar på olika sätt. Vissa väljer att acceptera de teknologiska, utopiska drömmar som påtvingas oss av cyniska marknadskrafter. Andra föredrar en mer primordial och förandligad inställning till visdom och intuitivt beteende. ”Back to human nature!” innehåller fem sinnesvidgande filmer av samtida visionära sinnen av det senare slaget.

Njutafilms & Carl Abrahamsson proudly present new Scandinavian art films:
Back to human nature!
A film program celebrating a new old perception of nature,
featuring amazing works by Fetish 23, Halo Manash,
Christine Odlund, Nadine Byrne and Gustaf Broms.

”Back to human nature!” contains new cinematic work by four Swedish artists and one Finnish audiovisual group. Dynamic, consciousness-expanding and awareness-raising, these films range from minimalistic meditations, animated analyses, over ritualistic reverence and psychic soulsearching, to primordial possession. With minimal means, these artists have created unique multidimensional visions of an inner state of mind and, more importantly, of experimental magical attempts to overcome the frustrations we all experience in contemporary culture, urbanized globalisation and technological stress. Their results are colourful cinematic talismans, beamed from five highly creative mind-entities to the world outside.

”Intermediate” (Fetish 23, Sweden, 2009, 12 min)
An ever fluctuating diptych with images of urban and natural landscapes in interaction. With a stunning soundtrack by Moljebka Pvlse, the impact is one of serene beauty and transformative power.

”Taiwaskivi” (Halo Manash, Finland, 2009, 50 min)
Halo Manash’s audiovisual shamanism spellbinds our apprehensions and breaks open our heads. With an archaic and atavistic animism straight from our primordial psyche, these groundbreaking Finnish artists seduce and impregnate the viewer with a stern sense of ritual force.

”Stress call of the stinging nettle” (Christine Ödlund, Sweden, 2009, 8 min)
A potently poetic display of organic beings gearing up for survival. The intricate defense- and intercommunication-systems of plants take us on a journey within ourselves. What can we learn?

”Decennial Celebratory Solidarity Ritual” (Nadine Byrne, Sweden, 2009, 17 min)
Five priestesses/goddesses congregate in a deserted quarry to perform a ritual of sacrifice. Intuitive, beautiful and thought-provoking actions take place. We may not be able to change history’s twists and turns, but (sub)conscious magic can certainly help heal emotional wounds.


”Where is here?” (Gustaf Broms, Sweden, 2009, 42 min)
In this incredibly ambitious psychedelic epic, we follow a protagonist on his magical trip from despair to hope. With an overflowing visual texture, Broms weaves a truly multidimensional web of strong impressions. Where are we heading? Is there a direction at all?
