I Don't Know the River
Experimental doc., Essay/diary notes | hdv | color | 27'44'' | Finland | 2016
Experimental documentation of three peculiar events that took place in three different forests. Audiovisual notation that is unravelling the moments of fear in the eternal process of transformation.
Joakim Pusenius (b. 1984) graduated (BFA & MFA) from Finnish School of Fine Arts in 2014. Before the arts school Pusenius studied in University of Helsinki theoretical philosophy, aesthetics and tv- and media studies (BA). Pusenius works mainly with moving image. In his artistic practise he is focusing on the means of the audiovisual medium by developing new ways of using camera and storytelling. He is interested in film making without a strict sense of storyline or the arch of drama. More likely he is interested in the dichotomy of the cinema: The possibility of cinemas metaphysical otherness and its capability of immersion. Eternal recurrence, existential solitude and disconnection by the modern technology are common themes in Pusenius` works. Last year Pusenius was working in Le Fresnoy - Studio National des arts Contemporains producing his most recent film work "Reste pour la nuit".
