Von Krahl Theatre’s collection of short films “Contact” premieres on March 6th 2015.
The collection is comprised of five stories created by the future stars of Estonian filmmaking: Martti Helde, Maria Reinup, Triin Ruumet, Raigo Saariste and Vallo Toomla. With the release of this collection Von Krahl Theatre continues the tradition of bringing together new theatre and new cinema which started in 2005 with the short film collection “Elusive Miracle”. Back then Von Krahl’s artistic group collaborated with the directors Andres Maimik, Arbo Tammiksaar, Jaak Kilmi, Rainer Sarnet, Marko Raat and Marianne Kõrver who remixed the work of classic Estonian writer Eduard Vilde. Today a new generation of film and theatre directors and actors is ready to step into the spotlight and thus the time has come for the next chapter – “Contact”.
The five stories in “Contact” are very different in both content and style. In the case of “Elusive Miracle” the authors shared a specific work of literature – Vilde’s most famous play – as a common starting point but now the authors only agreed on the general theme: contact, interaction with the unusual, unearthly and unbelievable. The clash between everyday reality and fantasy, this world and that. Check out the official poster of the collection where an alien is hiding its identity using a VHS tape as a mask, it shoult give you a hint.
The films also share a common method of production. Strict boundaries were set for the directors by the theatre – a small budget and little time. Come to think of it this sounds like any other Estonian movie. Still in our case the boundaries gave the authors freedom to try anything without having to fear blame or mocking. They had a chance to go wild. Young authors need this kind of freedom. Otherwise they start holding back and self-censoring. This is bad for creativity.
“Contact” is not a phone book or City Theatre’s talk show.
“Contact” is five pictures of the future of Estonian film.
“Contact” is the meeting point of fresh theatre and cinema.
