Found material shot in the 1960s on car trips is manipulated using methods typical of the era’s avant-garde: chemical and physical alterations of the light-sensitive emulsion, combined with scratching and painting on the film image, evoke the wild sense of passing sensations and ideas in the wide-open landscape.


Self-taught Canadian director Mike Maryniuk (1977) is known for his humorous films, which show their author’s inspiration from Jim Henson and Looney Tunes. Maryniuk worked as the director of photography on the film Echoes (2015, Ji.hlava IDFF 2015).
