Kung Guld
Björn Renner & Christoffer Paues

Kung Guld is a suggestive collage film where focus is on emotional communication rather than linear narrative. In the film the main character’s rich emotional life, which moves in all directions, is revealed. It is easy to discern a search for self as well as a frustration of not being understood. The solution is to enter into a dream world, a reality which is self-made.

Cinematically, this reality is portrayed through the use of different techniques, such as Super 8, stills (photos/drawings) and animations. The flow of images moves through different dimensions and thus a new reality is defined. One could compare the film to a piece of psychedelic jazz, where a theme is abandoned and then returned to. In this way we let the piece compose it self, so to speak. This is a form of methodology we use frequently. It enables us to be confronted with deep unconscious fears and wishes, surfacing during the creative process.

In all our films this way of working creates a certain tone and it is a connecting thought between then. Politically we are taking a stand against emotional impoverishment and a too great emphasis on measurable values. We all have more inside of us than we are allowed to express. Each individual is, we believe, a sea of fire.
