Filmproduction [2011]
Client: Kulturring Østjylland, Elle-Mie Ejrdrup Hansen

UiWE produced 6 films documenting the artwork ”LIGHT – Landscape and voices (LYS – Landskab og stemmer) created by artist Elle-Mie Ejdrup Hansen and composer Marie Højlund [Marybell Catastrophy]. The artwork is a unique integration of light art, composition and poetry by legendary Danish poet Inger Christensen – and some very characteristic Danish landscapes.

In our filmic representation, we attempted to catch the very special character of each of the 6 places where the work took place. In the editing we focused in conveying the feel of the poem – read aloud by more 700 locals and mixed in a 6 hour composition – as well as the passing of the time each night.
