Weird Works The Bridge

Julie Dind & Rolf Gerstlauer (2022, 26’38”)

In WEIRD WORKS THE BRIDGE, a filmic para/pataphrasing of Chris Marker’s La Jetée (1962), NN performs a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge of New York City. We are invited to both hear and see the filmmaker processing his memories of the performance – what it connects to – on the timeline of a larger set of events. The film explores our (in)capacity to create object relations, questions our thirst for pictures, lists, numbers, …and mourns the loss of fellow beings. WEIRD WORKS THE BRIDGE is the sequel to WEIRD DRAWN AT LAND.

Weird Drawn At Land

Julie Dind & Rolf Gerstlauer (2020, silent, 19’52”)

WEIRD DRAWN AT LAND is the story of how the present deals with the past and worries about the future. Julie Dind is NN; Nomen Nescio, No Name …or just Not Neurotypical. NN has always been WEIRD. Known as Urðr, wyrd or weird, she’s the past. With her are her sisters Verðandi and Skuld; the present and that which yet has to become. The three Norns are in Norse Mythology the fate makers that sway humans’ destiny. How the present reads the past influences the future. WEIRD DRAWN AT LAND is a work in progress filmed on the Lista Peninsula in Southern Norway.
