The Humming Loom of Time. 67’ 2021.
‘the humming loom of time’ combines elements of fiction and documentary to provoke reflection on the nature of the universe and methods to influence it. The film addresses ideas of politics, migration, gender, materiality, folklore and narrative structures.
mmmmmfilms is the result of an ongoing collaboration between the artists Adrian Fisher, Luna Montenegro and Ginés Olivares. They have worked together since 2003 making art films, documentary fiction, performances and installations that have been shown in Festivals, Biennials and Galleries in Europe and Latin America.
They see film making as a collective experience interweaving multiplicities of voices and languages, working on the borders between the political and the poetic, questioning ideas of balance within human an non-human ecosystems. They consider technology, science and magic as an organic weaving developing in physical and virtual spaces.
They met in 2003 filming an ancient South American indigenous fertility ritual ‘OSH’ 18′ in a former Berlin power station. They work together writing, filming, performing and recording audio. They have made 10 short films together ranging genres across performance art re-enactment, documentary and visual essays. Adrian Fisher and Luna Montenegro are Visual Artists based in London making Performance, Poetry, Film, Installation, Drawing and Curatorial Projects. Ginés Olivares is a Film Maker, Editor and Poet working with documentary and fiction based in Berlin.
