What is Happiness? It is a mathematical formula, based on the number of good deeds a person makes during their lifetime, with the subtraction of all their mistakes. How can one find it?
The result of three months of fieldwork is a feature-length ethnographic film, currently in post-production. Shot in full HD, it is an exploration of the eccentric aesthetic of the commune, juxtaposed with bucolic images of the Ukrainian countryside. It is a clashing, highly conflictual narrative where stakes are high and errors unavoidable. It is finally, a deeply personal negotiation with participants whose dreams and aspirations contradict the fundamental philosophy of the filmmaker. This film does not ask “what is happiness?” It asks who owns the question.

Memory Blossoms deals with the ephemeral moments in life.
The attempt to grasp them resulted in an image bank of recollections.
In 'Memory Blossoms' Tine Guns places these images in a different context to give them back the scent of memory.

L'une et l'autre
I started off a personal research, but again and again I was confronted to so many stories that could tell something about myself, that I got lost. This made me decide to tell my story through other people. I looked for myself through the other. I let myself guide by other women, let myself be hypnotised by their voices...
My film is about exchange, sharing and making choises. I make a film, I tell a story.

BY OTHERS' / EXPERIMENT
In this project Sandra reflects on her position as visual anthropologist. Once the visual comes to question, the parameters of the camera are not sufficient to the parameters of anthropology. Can we make a film in full collaboration? As Sandra puts in question her carrier as filmmaker, there is a big need to make this film. She invests on the relation between humans and technology. The big dilemma to be solved will be the choice between letting go the control of quality and making good cinema. How will Sandra give up controling her personal work? Where and how will we feel the comon ground?
Sandra lives and works in London.
