Synopsis: TROLLSLÄNDOR MED FAGLAR OCH ORM is a visual meditation consistiting of vibrant images of insects, birds, snakes, and other small creatures. It is not an entomological or ornithological documentary, yet it delves deep into a microcosm of animals, plants, their colors, intricate structures, and movements, all made visible by means of optical machinery. It is an exercise in rhythm and chance, deploying the persistence of vision to create an effect that oscillates between the material of the image and the imagination, a flicker just like the ephemeral beat of a dragonfly’s wing. For TROLLSLÄNDOR MED FAGLAR OCH ORM Wolfgang Lehmann used 16mm film images of insects, birds, toads, snakes, taken from zoological and educational films, as well as original material. The montage follows a strict rhythm, combing three to six frames, resulting in explosions of color on the screen, visual music without actual sound or text.
