The three films, "Jarmark Europa" (2006), "Esperi" (2005), and Zubr (2006) were all shot over the duration of a single journey that lasted ten days, that I shared with a contact I had made through the art school in Warsaw, who acted as Polish translator, and a friend and fellow film maker. On the first leg of the journey we travelled north east by road from Warsaw to Bialystok where the Esperanto headquarters is located. After shooting material for Esperi here, we followed the border between Poland and Belarus south to the small village of Bialowieza, the site of the Polish Bialowieza National Park headquarters. We then moved on via the border town Terespol, which is a main entry point into Belarus on the Berlin-Warsaw-Mminsk-Moscow transport link, to the Belarusian city of Brest. Brest became our base for our short stay in Belarus and from here we travelled into the heart of Europe´s last primeval forest Belovezhskaya Puscha (Bialowieza Forest) on the Belarusian side of the border. It was at the Belarusian National Park headquarters in Kamieniuki that we finally saw a zubr, the European Bison behind the fences of Kamieniuki zoo. The films are laid out to refelct this course, beginning in Warsaw and ending in the Bialowieza Forest. [...]
/ Samuel Stevens.
Stevens is a DVD compilation of the three films, "Jarmark Europa" (2005), "Esperi" (2005) and "Zubr" (2006) that originate in a journey undertaken by the artist from Warsaw to the Belarusian National Park headquarters in Kamieniuki, Belarus.
The films focus on a Vietnamese community of market traders that existed in what was once (but has since been demolished) Europe's largest outdoor market, Jarmark Europa; Esperanto, through an interview with the president of the founding Esperanto society headquarters in Bialystok; the threat of deforestation to Europe's last remaining primeval forest Belovezhskaya Pushcha triggered by the closure of the border between Poland and Belarus and the suppression of the Belarusian language by Lukashenko's government.
