a film festival celebrating resourceful cinema.(Eora/Wangal/Sydney).
(to be read aloud):
By finding natural bridges between independent production and arthouse, Garden Reflexxx’s singular open-filmmaker artistry upends mono-director banality, meditating on group play and experimental making. Their works cut resourcefully between improv, videographic imagination, spiritual logic, impulse, and the mistakes-curious family movie. Permitting a form of neo-intimate portrait film. In their world words outrace ideas, crashing at the finish line - talk explosions as a penultimate monument. Collapsing through industry burnout or excessive artmaking lands an oeuvre of films, installations, criticism, radio, and iPhone poetry. A practice of interminably ongoing rushes-party bedroom productions where Time and Patience are one candle burning at both ends. The result? An inexhaustible enthusiasm for everything-film that finds humanism out of order and representation immediate: random-family orientated. By journeying through, their films create a seduction of spectacle. The chaos of relationships. Metropolitan situations without role models. Super-natural gay films.
Garden Reflexxx motion pictures are a certain marvel that rests in pieces, and encourages audiences to laugh at calamity. Every work puts a moment down like nobody’s business, and renders it meaningful.
