Here’s the earliest recognized film by Lars Trier (the von was adopted later) made with a Super 8 camera when he was eleven, Turen til Squashland: En Super Pølse Film (The Trip to Squash Land: A Super Sausage Film), courtesy of our friends at Dangerous Minds.

The two-minute stop-motion short was created by von Trier on a Super-8 camera when he was eleven. It’s technically quite impressive for a kid that age and ominously cheerful. There’s a bunny abduction and a sausage super-hero who I just don’t entirely trust. It seems worth noting that Trier had a non-normative childhood. His parents—who were lifestyle nudists—didn’t believe in punishment, but still managed to keep a distinct emotional distance from him. The controversial Danish director’s mother also told him on her deathbed that he was the product of an affair.

Embeded below is En Blomst  (1971), a short film Lars von Trier made when he was 15.

Trier submitted Orchidégartneren AKA The Orchid Gardener (1977) as part of his application to film school. Many of the aesthetic and thematic fetishes of his later feature length films (including the Dogme 95 films and his more recent return to the fantastic in Antichrist, Melancholia, and the recent Nymphomaniac) are already evident here. The film, as its subtitle says, tells “part of the story of Victor Marse,” an artist (played by Lars himself).

What to do of a Sunday? Oh I dunno, see an amazing array of live music? Swap your unwanted clothes at a swap shop? See a few brilliant short films? Browse a market stall or many? Experience a new type of live-painting?

Yeah some of that’d be nice. Well how about all of that? In the one place? For free?

I thought so.

The process of capturing sound for film is always a hands-on, labor of love.

We love this man.

Art can’t fix anything. It can just observe and portray. What’s important is that it becomes an object, a thing you can see and talk about and refer to. A film is an object around which you can have a debate, more so than the incident itself. It’s someone’s view of an incident, an advanced starting point.

This short portrait of dancing mother and son, Patrick Hanna and Shoko Ito by Boris Seewald is at once exuberant, uplifting and stragely gut-wrenching. Shot filmmaking at its best right here.

You can check out the making of here.
