Worldbuilding cinema Den Røvsmalle Biograf film society. Film by Natasha Arthy and talk by Julie Forchhamer
This season’s theme in the city’s art film society is “New Worlds.” It sounds futuristic and nostalgic at the same time, with a colonial vibe to it. It’s an interesting topic for cinema, where a literal approach sees countless scenarios taking protagonists to the end of the world and back, and a meta-approach brings to light the limits of the medium itself, and the efforts to overcome them.
On Sunday, Den Røvsmalle Biograf shows “Fanny Farveløs,” the debut film of Danish filmmaker Natasha Arthy. A playful story seemingly for kids, the film is a short parable on the role of imagination and the fantastic fairy tales that are hidden in the cracks of our daily lives. Set in a selectively futuristic time, with elements of mild dystopia, the film follows the protagonist as a dull, grey reality turns into a magic land, right before her eyes. Funny, smart and hopeful, this is a must see/see again.
Following the film, scenographer Julie Forchhamer talks about the role of scenography in creating “new worlds;” about illusion, fantasy, ingenuity and the incredible talent of using the stuff of this world to create unimaginable new ones.
