Lorenzo Castore, Adam Cohen

No Peace Without war

Doc. expérimental | dv | couleur | 38:0 | Italie, Allemagne | 2012

?No Peace Without War? is a film about Ewa and Piotr Sosnowski, brother and sister, living together since the death of their father. It is meant to be the story of a forgotten world that takes place behind the door of a two-room apartment in Krakow, Poland. Comprehending Ewa and Piotr?s past and present simply through facts is almost impossible. At a certain moment everything falls into a misty and mysterious cloud where real and invented memories become indistinct. The more we get to know them facts become trifling and unsubstantial. The only sure thing is that they live in extreme poverty but they never complain about it. Insight and unique access to this story is made possible through the eyes and understanding of Italian photographer-filmmaker Lorenzo Castore (Mario Giacomelli Prize 2003, Leica European Publisher Award 2005) and the visual approach of experimental documentary filmmaker Adam Cohen. In collaboration with Austrian composer and guitarist Christian Fennesz.

Adam Cohen / Director / Biography Adam Cohen is a New York City born filmmaker and photographer. Working somewhere between film, painting and photography ? the city as a place to explore themes of memory and forgetting, history and entropy. Filmography: Blind Grace (1993), Fire of Time (2000). Christian Fennesz / Composer / Discography Fennesz uses guitar and computer to create shimmering, swirling electronic sound of enormous range and complex musicality. »Imagine the electric guitar severed from cliché and all of its physical limitations, shaping a bold new musical language.« (City Newspaper, USA). His lush and luminant compositions are anything but sterile computer experiments. They resemble sensitive, telescopic recordings of rainforest insect life or natural atmospheric occurrences, an inherent naturalism permeating each piece. Christian Fennesz is published by Touch Music. He lives and works in Vienna and Paris.
