”Everyone has…” is a short non-fiction film.
Its narrative is not linear but is structured on a
visual rhythm that is based on camera movements
following and connecting to the physical surfaces.
The film portraits myself and my Dutch partner
artist Stella De Boo.
”Everyone has…” uses a reflective nonlinear
visual avalanche-like editing that continues to
unfold with the music by Moby.
My attempt has been to establish a ”short” but
large physical force in the film that is based on
non-fictional footage but the end results are in
borders of contemporary art.
When doing this film I have been thinking about
the concept theatre and my position in it. I see
this process to be threefold. First is the theatre
with me and the subjects and locations, thereafter
a separate theatre that is transformed into
position by facing a computer while editing.
Finally, the third theatre is when the film is
confronted by the audience on my webpage
I have mixed the film with contemporary art pieces
by Stella De Boo as well as my own photographic
works. All of the work cuts have been filmed in
art studio-like conditions in Rotterdam, The
Netherlands. With these shots, I have studied
connections between photography and Stella De
Boo’s art, and I also wanted to acknowledge and
show the influence of her art on my own work.
Most of the material was filmed in Rotterdam, from
the early 1990s onwards. The final perspective in
the editing was done in Finland in early 2019.
In March 2011 Dalai Lama said that he was planning to hand down his political responsibilities to an elected representative, what Tibetans in this film called “Kalun Steba”. They do not call such a position as a Prime Minister, but Dalai Lama says such a move is in the best interest of the Tibetans in exile.
