Gorgeous Trailer For Anders Ronnow Klarlund's LA JETEE Inspired THE SECRET SOCIETY OF FINE ARTS

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
Denmark's Anders Ronnow Klarlund has never been a director shy to challenge himself or his audience. He first came to international attention thanks to Strings, a fantasy tale executed beautifully entirely with marionettes. That was followed with How To Get Rid Of The Others, a more conventionally filmed tale that firmly embraced a sense of Swiftian satire. And now Klarlund is back with another experiment, The Secret Society Of Fine Arts.

An experiment in more than one sense, Klarlund claims Secret Society will be his final film. Clearly inspired by La Jetee, the film was created through the manipulation of 3D still photographs and is being distributed within Denmark as a DVD insert on the film magazine Ekko with Chris Marker's La Jetee included as a bonus.

A group of underground artists blow up Berlin's zoological museum and declare it "a work of art". Their goal is to set beauty free. The unrelenting passion fascinates actress Eva Kovacs, who joins the group. But how do you draw the line between art and terror? The Secret Society of Fine Arts is unparalleled in Danish cinema. Anders Rønnow Klarlund eliminates the medium's most vital element -- moving images -- and tells his story through 3D processed still photos. The intention is to make us sharpen our senses.
Curious how this will all play out? The film's trailer is itself one fine piece of art. Check it below.
