Lateralis | Digging Deeper
A previously unknown world
The FJB Fingerprint wishes to introduce a new art film, which is planned to be launched in 2018.
The action in Lateralis takes place in another dimension; an adjacent world to our own. This dimension accommodates different life forms, creatures and moods.
A previously unknown people meet us on our journey home.
We are invited to take part in their peculiar way of life. The loving "Pyramid of Life" has bestowed upon this dimension a protective giant.
Queen Knymara introduces us to the people of the blue dimension through her unique dance "Waltz of the Queen."
The film is based on the musical cycle «People of Blue Dimension» Op.4, which was written when the composer was 18 years old. This work has eight movements, and Lateralis is an adaptation of this music. A female actor embodies the various roles in this highly original production. The music is both melodic and dramatic, and as is often the case with composer Flint Juventino Beppe, both humour and seriousness create a fusion that does not need an external "code breaker" to make sense.
The film lasts about 11 minutes and will include a variation of nature scenes from Saltdal, north of the Arctic Circle. The music is to be recorded by a large Russian symphony orchestra, and the composer himself will be conducting. In addition, Beppe holds all the positions behind the camera to make sure the music is reflected in the film according to the script's intentions. Like the films Montagna con Forza and Vicino alla Montagna, Beppe's productions are often innovative and organic, where music and images merge in a symbiotic connection.
The final result will be published in most digital formats, and will be submitted to international film festivals, television channels and film clubs worldwide.
– When I composed this orchestral cycle I envisaged a parallel, invisible dimension to our own that would represent different expressions of mankind's psychological challenges through life. "Persecution Mania", the title of one of the eight parts of this work, manifests intensity as an example of the inner struggles one is frequently confronted with.
