During the workshop the participants will work with 35 mm celluloid strips and colour them with different paints and felt tip markers. The strips used for the workshop have been buried in the ground and the procedure partially decomposed the images on them.

Péter Lichter is a Hungarian experimental filmmaker. He studied film history and film theory at the Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest. Peter makes found footage, abstract films and lyrical documentaries since 2002. His films were screened at festivals and venues like: Berlinale Critics' Week; Tribeca Film Festival - New York; Rotterdam IFF.

His first feature length film (Frozen May) was released in 2017, his second feature The Rub (with Bori Máté) was released in 2018.

She began making films in collaboration with Péter Lichter in 2016, and completed her first solo project, The Headless Appearance, in 2017. Her films were screened at festivals like Berlin Critics' Week, Jihlava IDFF and Oberhausen Short Film Festival.
