Film: ForeBears

A new film by Marie CACHET and Varg VIKERNES about prehistoric Europe, nature and spirituality.  The lyrics in the soundtrack are taken from the Norse poem “Völuspá” Cachet provides this description of the film:

“To summarize the story, Varg Vikernes is thinking and discovers bit by bit what happened before. A kind of journey in reverse through time and in thought, to prehistoric time (about 30 000 BC), up to a previous life when he was a little boy. Through what he lives again in this little boy, he understands the meaning of certain essential rituals of that prehistoric time, that still have a major influence on modern habits.”

Georgian Film: Sapovnela (1959)


Sapovnela is a short film by Georgian director Otar Iosseliani from 1959. "Sapovnela" means "the flower that nobody can find." This film is presented without subtitles (the voiceover was forced on Iosseliani by the censorship in the Soviet times but the film was banned anyway due to its ending). This was his first attempt at combining music and colors. Also, this is a story about the old florist Mikhail Mamulashvili who created wonderful compositions in his small garden.
