From dust they arise,
drawn together by a magic frequency…
EVA COLMERS, GARY JAMES JOYNES, and aAron MUNSON
Far away, inexplicable forces shape matter into form. And so life begins: people arise from dust and are drawn to each other by the magical frequency of 2,750 Hz.
Captivating, beautiful and stirring, the short film 2.57k allows us to see and hear the extraordinary.
Eva Colmers has written and directed 16 award-winning short and long-format films in the dramatic, experimental and documentary genre including Granny Baby, The Weightless Traveller, End of the Rope, The NFB Elder Project, LUZ, Hand Sum, The Enemy Within and No Problem. In a unique playful style, Colmers explore various aspects of alienation and belonging in her work. Her films have been screened at many international festivals as well as on television and she has received several awards for her accomplishments.
With a background in theatre, Colmers has also created visual background for theatre-, dance- and music performances. She is presently finishing a new documentary for the National Film Board of Canada and is working on a dramatic script for a multi-ethnic dramatic comedy.
Colmers enjoys meeting new people, places and challenges and welcomes collaborations and co-productions

Clinker’s Live Cinema work On the Other Side... was commissioned by the 2008 International Leonard Cohen Festival and toured internationally.

Joynes’ most recent audio-visual solo installation is the large scale Broken Sound at Edmonton’s dc3 Art Projects. Previous solo shows include Frequency Painting: 12 Tones, Soundbursting No. 1 and Topographic Sound which featured his critically acclaimed work Ouroboros which had its world premiere at Toronto’s Koffler Centre of the Arts.
