Are you an amateur filmmaker? Do you love Lars von Trier? This contest may be up your alley. Von Trier is soliciting five-minute movies for Gesamt, an art project sponsored by the Copenhagen Art Festival that will eventually produced a stitched-together film from the individual submissions. Filmmakers must take their inspiration from six pieces: James Joyce’s Ulysses, Paul Gauguin’s Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going?, the works of Sammy Davis Jr., August Strindberg’s The Father, composer César Franck’s improvisations, or the Zeppelinfield in Nuremberg monument (a Nazi meetinghouse created by Hitler’s architect). It’s definitely an eclectic mix of sources, but it should produce some equally eclectic films. Von Trier himself won’t assemble the final film; that will be handled by Jenle Hallund, one of his collaborators. Still, it’s a cool opportunity. As the New York Times notes, the contest bears an inspiring message: “Technical skills are not the biggest priority — originality and enthusiasm are much more important.” Submissions will be accepted through September 6.
