"Liquify" is a poetic meditation on the timeless attraction of female beauty in all its shapes. It was shot on super 8 film stock with effects produced physically.
The title refers to the Photoshop tool commonly used to digitally manipulate the body appearance in order to conform with what some people consider to be a beauty standard. But is it not up to everyone of us to find out what kind of beauty attracts us most? And has not every woman the right to feel beautiful?
The film ends with a remarkable quote by painter Francis Bacon (1561-1626) who had his very own opinion on beauty.

Lars Kemnitz (b 1988) is a visual artist and creative director based in Hamburg, Germany. Since he discovered his passion for photography at university in the late 2000s, he has continually been shaping and developing his own visual language and vision. Today he also experiments with the medium of film which seems natural as his fascination for cinema has always served as a major source of inspiration; it reflects in his work when he blends cinematic story-telling with fashion, documentary and art influences to explore topics mostly dealing with the imaginative, the mystical, the cryptic, the suggestive and the subconscious.
