Fatal when they Touch – Luna Montenegro – Adrian Fisher – Gines Olivares – UK

Reflecting on Gilles Deleuze writing on cinema the film searches for ‘an outside more distant than any exterior…. where the visible is covered over or buried’.

Ranging from mobile devices to the Universe the film explores our relation to nature and technology. It examines societies’ preoccupation with the face as part of a ‘black hole – white wall’ system trapping individuals between the body – image – capture – projection, fatal when they touch.

Director Statement

We think of film as an immersive, poetic and transforming experience in which to research alternative narratives, rituals and documentary processes.
Our filmmaking is a collaborative act in writing, sound and visual aesthetics, a process of uncovering what is just beneath the surface.
