Fivesixteen in association with Experimental Film Society presents 'The Story of Drifting Cities', an experimental feature film that revolves around two women who share each other’s thoughts and dreams. It explores themes of freewill and identity.
Last December 90pc of the film was photographed in urban locations around Dublin City with performers Justyna Janiszewska and Ayami Andrews. An additional day was photographed in London in February. It is being shot in a vintage Bell & Howell 70-HR camera in 16mm Anamorphic on Kodak's Vision 3 Colour. Pre-production involved only a rough treatment and structure that allowed for improvisation.
The raised funds will cover the lab costs of the development of the 16mm film which has been arranged and secured with idailies in the UK.
I am an experimental filmmaker who lives and works in Dublin, Ireland. The past 5 years I have been working for the Irish TV/Film industry in post-production. In the meantime I have worked in completing 5 feature films completely outside the mainstream and on a zero budgets. My work has been screened both home and abroad.
