Trapart  Film launches a new project via Kickstarter.

“Derek Jarman’s super-8 film IN THE SHADOW OF THE SUN (1975, with music by Throbbing Gristle 1980) blew my mind when I first saw it. It has been one of the most influential films ever for me. During 2014 and 2015 I have shot and accumulated new super-8 material and am about to make a tribute to this peculiar cinematic gem. My film will be called SUB UMBRA ALARUM LUNA (“In the Shadow of the Moon”) and will contain new music by Swedish experimentalists Cotton Ferox. The goal is to make something as influential and poetic as Jarman’s film. That will be hard of course but I never give up! The money needed is for super-8 transfers, editing time and general post production costs. Almost all of the material already exists, so it’s a matter of assembling it in the best possible way. In the end, it should be approximately 40 mins, and a feast for eye and mind alike. Please help make it happen! Many thanks!” (Carl Abrahamsson)
