About Dagie Brundert

I was born in a small town in the middle of West Germany. Beautiful nature, but boring after a while… I moved to Berlin and studied visual arts / experimental film. Fell in love with my Super 8 camera (Nizo) in 1988. Since then I try to be a particle-finder, a wave-catcher and a good story-teller. I try to absorb weird beautiful things from this world. Chew them and spit them out again.


About Echo Park Film Center and the LA AIRport

Echo Park Film Center is a non-profit media arts organization providing equal and affordable community access to film/video resources. With a special focus on youth and media-marginalized populations, EPFC programs and services use cinema as catalyst to inspire, educate and activate people around the world. Reimagining the traditional artist residency as street-level engagement, EPFC’s LA AIRport is an eco-friendly custom trailer funded by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association that transforms itself into a mobile residency space, cinema/projection portal and analog film lab in the blink of an eye!
