Savage Witches (2012)
A Motion Picture Exploration by Daniel Fawcett & Clara Pais
Savage Witches is a playful and poetic film which follows two girls who use their imagination and the magic of cinema to break free from the prison they see around them. This kaleidoscopic experiment in cinematic alchemy was the first collaboration between Daniel Fawcett & Clara Pais and the beginning of The Underground Film Studio.
“With Savage Witches we celebrate all that we love about cinema - the artifice, the playfulness, the theatricality and magical quality of the medium – all that speaks to our imagination and takes us on a richer and more truthful journey. The films form could be seen as that of a conversation, a chain of thoughts or a series of interruptions. Cinema for us is a tool to investigate, to question, explore and experience life so we call it a motion picture exploration, the results of this exploration are presented to the audience to indulge in and enjoy, and to feed into their own journey through life.” - Daniel Fawcett & Clara Pais
is a colourful collage of sounds and images that has been created using all manner of processes and formats from VHS and Super 8 to drawn animation and hand-coloured frames, resulting in a bold and expressionistic exploration of the art of cinema.Read reviews, interviews and articles about Savage Witches here: goo.gl/9GMOJyWatch clips
