Dagie Brundert is processing Super 8 material in her kitchen.
»I have been making Super 8 films for decades and now I’m also a recognised organic alchemist. Organic film processing using eco-friendly ingredients is something I’m passionate about. First, it prevents further polluting of our planet. And it also helps us to understand the material itself. I’m a kind of alchemical witch, processing films and photos in an organic brew while deepening my knowledge of the material and of how to capture time and light. I film the strange oddities in life. And my natural surroundings give me something – we are all connected to one another. I’m completely under the spell of the haptic analogue world, and it whisks me off to a place where I develop eco-friendly organic potions!«
Dagie Brundert studied graphic art and experimental film design in Berlin, and in the late 1980s discovered a passion for Super 8 film. Since then, she has worked exclusively with a Nizo Super 8 camera and is entirely self-taught: she animates, absorbs and creates. Her work is shown internationally. In recent years, she has become a specialist in biologically developed Super 8 films and photos.
