Leaked from the Librorum Prohibitorum is Rupert Owen’s new film to be shot this summer in Lisbon, Portugal. Rupert Owen, artist and filmmaker from Melbourne currently based in Europe, has been celebrated in the past for his award winning as well as for his banned work. He stands for movies such as The Film that John Lennon couldn’t make, 60 Second Relief and Errol Flynn’s Pianist. I was lucky enough to make friends with Rupert during the shoot of Anna Brownfield‘s The Band and am looking forward to our Leaked from the Librorum Prohibitorum being made this summer.
In a journey through Figura, Imago and Allegoria, we’re expecting a 60 second experimental piece. Why 60 minutes? – Well, “It takes three minutes to boil a hard boiled egg and one minute for a soft boiled egg.” – In Germany, soft takes 4 minutes and hard about 6. But of course – it’s all a lot more complicated than that. – Meet the filmmaker and listen yourself:
Rupert also runs Snuffboxfilms – a great site exploring out of the box audio-visual story telling, cinematic experiments and the art of filmmaking.
