“I’m Cherry Kino (Martha Jurksaitis, London, 1981), an analogue artist filmmaker whose early years were spent exploring gardens, looking through kaleidoscopes, and naked swimming. In terms of passions, they persist! I work with the Super 8 and 16mm film formats, which I process by hand using a variety of alchemical techniques, and am devoted to the sensual possibilities of film and its capacity to trigger and expand a deliciously embodied experience of presence in the audience. I’ve lived in England, Germany, Australia, Iceland and Portugal.”  https://vimeo.com/cherrykino
