Hello and welcome to Cherry Kino!
I’m Cherry and I’m an analogue filmmaker and photographer.
Um, that sounds like the first line of an AAA meeting – Analogue Artists Anonymous…!
I started out processing films in a bath tub and gradually built my own film lab and dark room. I love filmmaking – classic black and white cinematography, saturated colour, coloured in psychedelic toners, hand-painted with inks, glitters and nail varnish, or developed in homemade eco-friendly ‘soups’!
As well as my solo work, I also make collaborative projects with musicians and artists who I take great pleasure in working with.
I adore film, and Cherry Kino is my expression of that love. I hope you enjoy exploring the site. Check out my short showreel below, and you can find full films on the Film and Music Video pages. Vive le film analogue!
As the late great Pablo Neruda said,
‘I want to do with you what spring does with the cherry trees.’
