LFM comments on the distortions in the image of women and the food cycle in the pulse of the Berlin metropolis: The female protagonist is transformed from a suburbanite in a big-city photo studio into a mythical warrior exuding primal energy for an avant-garde photo session. The film details the power and resources of the fashion world to shape the very real image of women. LFM culminates in a surprising juxtaposition of worlds as the protagonist hunts for sustenance on the obscure frontiers of society.


About the director

Jarkko Räsänen (b. 1984 FI) is an artist working with photography, moving image, and sound art. His work is computer-based, using algorithms that create new visuals from already existing images and moving images. He is interested in questioning the realism connected to image files that we consume by deconstructing them in the spirit of glitch art – despite this his work is more related to conceptual art via the strict structural operations he uses in programming them, rather than to errors. He wishes to bridge the coder-aesthetics to the traditions of experimental cinema and informalist & impressionist painting. He graduated from the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts, Time and Space Art department in 2011. During his studies he also spent a semester at the University of Arts Berlin. Räsänen's moving image works have been presented in various venues including CCA Derry/Londonderry, ARD1, ZDF, Arte, ORF, Anthology Archives NY, Videotage HK, Ars Electronica Linz & FRACTO Berlin.


Filmmaker's note

What does LFM stand for you? For me LFM stands for equality, negative and positive freedom, precariat, matriarchy, revolution, fashion, beauty, mercy, taboo, true friendship, commitment, sensitivity, self-love and good vibes. But at what cost.
