SAVAGE WITCHES

2012, 70 mins, HD / Super8 / VHS / Mini-DV, colour / b+w

The first collaboration between Daniel Fawcett & Clara Pais, Savage Witches is a kaleidoscopic experimental feature film about two girls who use their imagination and the magic of cinema to transform the world around them. The screen becomes a canvas of visual experimentation, mixing a great variety of textures, colours and techniques that tear through narrative and formal conventions in order to liberate our senses and activate the imagination. As the film unfolds, the process of filmmaking seeps into the film itself, extending the search for creative freedom to all levels of the film and blurring any distinctions between documentary, fiction, reality and artifice.
