Svetlo & Feny, a twin-like androgynous pair of artists, are preparing strange objects and devices in their studio. Stepping out in the deserted suburban surroundings at night they perform a surprising experiment. The film was inspired by George Didi-Huberman’s and Pier Paolo Pasolini’s reflections on endangered yet powerful minor cultures beyond mainstream. Svetlo & Feny – both names stand for “light” in different languages – is a study for the feature film project A Glimmering Darkness by Karin Andersen & Gianluca Di Dio (production ariane-film gmbh, Leipzig; coproduction Maxman Coop, Bologna).
