DEGNZ member Arvid Eriksson’s Acknowledgements, a dreamy art film shot at Auckland’s iconic Parnell Baths, will have its world premiere at Film Invasion Los Angeles this month, a festival which celebrates independent and art-house film. It will compete for the Best Experimental Short Film Award.

The film is based on a poem by NZ poet Louise Wallace and features Kiwi comedian Donna Brookbanks (Funny Girls) as a bored pool attendant and the voice of veteran actor Elizabeth McRae. Acknowledgements reflects on the marvel of other people and how we all affect each other.

Arvid is currently developing another abstract short while directing commercial projects and writing on a feature.
