IDODO IDODO

IDODO

IDODO adapts a local legend by the Ziag Zagaz clan of Papua New Guinea into film and brings the diverse and unique cultural heritage of Papua New Guinea to an international audience. The animated short film retells the story of how reef fish got their beautiful colours and is a dedicated collaboration between filmmakers, artists, performers, and musicians from Papua New Guinea and PNG-born Swiss director Ursula Ulmi, rooted in cultural authenticity and co-creation.

Long ago the fish transformed into humans and came onto land to celebrate and dance. Once the sun set, they hurried back into the sea, leaving behind a big mess. Curious as to who occupied the village in their absence, the villagers of one island plan to find out who these uninvited visitors were. What they would soon discover, leaves them astounded and mesmerized.

NOMAD NOMAD

NOMAD

By the light of fireflies, the whispers of mythical snakes, and the ushering of a myriad of under worldly creatures, Nomad illustrates the twist and turns of a journey to the individuation of the spirit. Weaving through realms of light and shadow, where every encounter is alive with meaning, the uprooted protagonist takes us from the depths of her unconscious to the illuminations of the divine feminine.

A Feast That Never Comes A Feast That Never Comes

A Feast That Never Comes

Investigation and interrogation is at the heart of this project. We carve pathways for witnesses to ask their own questions and draw their own conclusions. We began with an examination of technology’s effects on everything from our understanding of self and others to communication, mental health, digital outrage, public and private presentation, and cycles of abuse.

The result is work that functions not as declarative, but rather as interrogative, always leaving the listener with more questions than answers. To suppose that an artist has all the answers is hubris at its most incessant and troubling. Here, we can’t find a singular truth, because art must reflect life. Instead, you are invited to grapple with the same questions that the creator struggles with.

The musical, lyrical, and visual motifs that repeat throughout the project may be taken as clues to the artist’s intent. But from there, you’re on your own. The only intent that prevails in A Feast That Never Comes is that of openness and investigation; there is no right answer, but there’s also no right question. You are hereby invited to ask your own questions, and provide your own answers. The work remains fundamentally unfinished without you.

Fine (Official Music Video)

Sometimes no is enough without having to explain the story of why. This video embodies and presents as many depictions of “no” as possible. It abandons linear narratives to embrace the abstraction & unpredictability uncovered when exploring the world of a sentiment/feeling. Many iconic “revenge/breakup” music videos starring women, portray these women as unhinged, crazy, and even demonic. It was essential that this NOT be the case in ‘Fine.’ In ‘Fine,’ the women are unchangingly grounded, empowered, and sane as they wreak destruction in order to tell the man who brought trauma/pain upon them “no.” The symbols of this man (his apologetic gifts, the infantilized submissive school-girl-esque image of women he finds ideal, the surrealist box-world he has trapped them in) are the catalysts for the unhinged/creepy/horrific tone of this suffocating-box world, not the women.

Gravity (Music Video)

"Gravity" started as a script for a short film that got rewritten as a song. The story is about someone who's always on the look for a meaning or purpose.

The story is metaphorically represented in a love theme, we can see the protagonist leaving earth (reality) to the endless space trying to find his lover (the purpose). It's a journey with no returning back, a one-way ticket to the unknown.

“Orange Tree” is a narrative dance film about the hopes and dreams we carry for the future and what happens when they do not come to fruition.
Focusing specifically on long-distance relationships and how so much of the relationship lies in a shared vision of the future, “Orange Tree” explores the vast amounts of time actually spent alone dreaming of that other person in the relationship, imagining what your lives might be like one day.

The Mirror

The Mirror is the latest fashion film directed by Giuila Achenza for the Milan-based fine jewellery brand Avel Lenttan. The film takes us on a journey of self-discovery, in which we learn to appreciate and love the natural beauty that is hidden within ourselves highlighted by the refined simplicity of the brand’s collection. We are presented with two identical women meeting at a crossroad between dream and reality. Facing one another with curiosity, they slowly come to realise how they are one and the same - two sides of the same person who have learnt to co-exist and appreciate each other’s peculiarities.

Mijo Mijo

Mijo

Mijo is a young dreamer, suddenly blessed with the gift of King Midas. However his ability has a unique twist: whatever and whoever he touches is stylishly pimped up.

Shot in the uncharted streets of Mexico City, Mijo is a colourful and fun fashion film inspired by the pachucos fashion from the 40s. The film is a collaboration with independent local artists, showcasing traditional Mexican tailoring, fashion, music and illustrations all in one project. Channeling the city's edgy and urban spirit, Mijo reinterprets the myth of King Midas through a modern Mexican lens.

Fun Fact

The word Mijo is a contraction of the Spanish words mi and hijo, meaning my son. This is a term of endearment which roughly translates as darling or dear used in Spanish-speaking countries to refer to someone younger.
