One Second Art Residencies

Igor and Ivan Buharov


Use of residency (ideas)

We would like to shoot a long feature film about Hungarian heroes, to show them daily life. We are planning to use an other dimension for the filming, and stopping this one second in this dimension for the work.


It has been more than 21 years that they have been working together, under the pseudonym of Igor and Ivan Buharov. They have been producing and directing several films. (experimentals, features, shorts, documentaries, animations) They have also been involved in the creation of several music projects and film music. Their works always dancing on the edge of fine art and cinematic art. The Buharovs shoot their films mainly with super 8 technique and combine elements of experimental filmmaking and narrative story-telling. The use of dreamlike imagery, poetical and philosophical texts, and self-written music give the specific atmosphere of their films. The world created by the Buharovs moves on the frontier of dream and reality, they capture archetypical experiences in surrealistic atmosphere. The protagonists are mostly friends and non-actors, who live outside of mainstream and elite culture, and often speak out poetic or philosophical dialogues given to them. The vision of freedom and its impossibility, the slow steps of the individual towards self-liberation are topics touched with melancholy and irony.
