Movie Description

This black & white non verbal stop motion film is a fantasy novel series about city in a modernism epoch - Kaunas. Folds is a metaphor for how time folds like fabric. It is a metaphor for how things can appear to repeat or loop. It is also an architectural trope for a repeat pattern, evident in Kaunas Interwar Modernism. There is also a folding of time: forgotten stories, othered voices are returned from the abyss of time and represented, they are brought back into the Fold. Folding stories within stories, buildings within buildings like a cleverly constructed origami or pop up book. Protagonists appear out of objects, there is magic everywhere. Smoke and Mirrors are not only at play but are a part of the very direction that goes into constructing every gesture or movement. This film is a socially engaged work, in that it has been laboured and created by hundreds of individuals to construct a complex series of stories and narratives, visual art, props, performances and audio visual experiences.
