2. LIST OF FILMS

 

by Zachàr Laskewicz

 

 

 

As of 2 February 2008 this page contains in total 45 short film excerpts, i.e. almost my total collection currently on line. Each of the films has an individual page as well with more detailed theoretical information, and in orer to reach these films there are links to the right as well as above each embedded video player belower. Click the figures above the film will also open a window with the possibility to both learn more about the film fragment and to watch it without distractions. Note also that the PLAYLISTS page has sets of short films that form together longer films in a specific order, such as the Philip Glass Metamorphosis compositions. These selections are also listed in approximately the same order below, but there is no impetus to watch them one after the other, if at all. Currently, the major divisions below are as follows:

[1] the CORRUPTED ENDEAVOUR films

- Consisting of 4 films.

[2] the SONGS OF INCANTATION films

- Consisting of 7 films.

[3] ZACHAR GOES PUBLIC

- Consisting of 1 film.

[4] FRAGMENTS & OPENING FILMS

- Shorter films that introduce the contents of longer works.

[5] the complete 'ZVOTŠLIPAS UMATŠLIPIT'

- the most up-to-date version of the film I'm currently working on.

[6] the complete ZACHAR PLAYS GLASS

- An introductory selection from the new 'Zachàr Plays Glass' DVD.

[7] ZAXÀR ZIZBILETIS

- the Disfodish title for the ''Zachàr Plays [with] Himself SVCD. Its contents are currently being rereleased on a real DVD with an updated amount of recordings both old and new.

[8] ZACHAR PLAYS PIANO

- Short, early films also made for SVCD which implicitly parody the romantic tradition and make gentle allusions to the silent film medium. Combined with the early recordings of Glass this forms more a basis to all the more complex work I'm doing now; if you look hard, however, you'll be able to see the soil it's grown from (if barely).
