Enchanted

Dreaming of queer utopias – A Work In Progress

  • Enchanted - the art-project

    Enchanted is not only a multi-movie-project.  Enchanted is a multi-media art-work! Film never stands alone by itself, but requires many other forms of art to be tied into it. It starts with the conception of an idea that has to be spun further through text and then converted into a script. This script then will transform into a story-board with concept drawings of scenes and takes. And after filming, cutting and editing, there still is the question of how and what music will be used in the film.
    We are still far from deciding on music, but some of the art we have produced can give you a glimpse of what is going to come – if we reach our funding goal. So keep spreading the word, it's the last three days!

    In the following, Maria, one of the directors and set-designer (and active in many other roles) has formulated her experiences and expectations of Entzaubert and Enchanted as a poem and a descriptive text. So allow yourself to be carried away by the beautiful words into the future and see what Enchanted is meant to be and realized as:


    One is arriving from a city near by

    They as an Ausländer

    one is presenting a film

    They just wanna have fun

    one just wants to put into practice

    one is sweating

    the queen welcomes/one is afraid

    we debate

    They come together


    Just behind the trees, they become linked under the leaves and strange diy constructions, a fragile ecosystem is emerging. Only for a few days and nights, different creatures from different places are gathered to hold a queer feminist reunion focused on cultural creation by the means of film production.
    A temporal community that interacts, shares knowledge and experiences, establishes bonds based in affection, common struggles, gathering different approaches. Energy flows.
    They have been repeating this instance of coming together, of developing bonds, of commemorating and celebrating the last 7 years consequently; only last year there was a break to the tradition. Ecosystems are dynamic entities— they are subject to periodic disturbances and are in the process of recovering from them. They are composed of different  systems that occasionally  come together, transform, and reassemble to create powerful means of communication and exchange.
    For several months now, they have been networking and building trust, same as physical and conceptual structures, that would enable this happening, carrying the knowledge of the past editions, while experiment each time different formulas. They are the Entzaubert collective.
    More than 100 films are presented coming from different parts of the world.
    The magical place that is chosen for this event is named Schwarzer Kanal, a queer-political space at the outskirts of Berlin.


    “We are interested in sharing experiences and build up bridges of solidarity”
    Gender-queer filmmaker Bri affirmed.
