A Triptych Filmpoem from Failed State

Lori H. Ersolmaz creates poetic films combining contemporary poems and creative writing as a tool/modality for meaning-making, especially related to critical analysis of social, political and cultural issues. Her work is influenced by Jungian psychology which is concentrated in depth psychology, inner work, the conscious and unconscious mind, archetypes, dreams, synchronicity and symbolism. Lori encourages the viewer to consider a personal and collective act of responsibility for the past, present and future. Her films are screened at film festivals and events, pop-up exhibitions, street art installations and museums, as well as the digital online environment.
