Garden of Eden
A Super 8 Film by Lars Kemnitz
The idea developed when I was in South Africa in March this year taking some time off and capturing the beautiful nature on Super 8 film. The way of doing that was very intuitive. Later, back in Hamburg, I created a story around it, stumbled upon a quote by D.H. Thoreau, wrote the music and convinced Christina, a super talented actress, to shoot the additional footage I needed to complete the film.
The film is telling the story of a modern-day Eva who returns to Paradise. It’s a celebration of the beauty of nature, meanwhile it reminds us of the importance to appreciate and take care of it, today more than ever, to keep this planet a place to live on for the next generations.
