  • Edge of Frame: Signal to Noise

    By on

    Edge of Frame started life as a blog on experimental animation written by artist and curator Edwin Rostron, and last year grew into a boundary-hopping weekender at the Whitechapel Gallery and Close-Up Cinema. We asked Rostron to put together a special Optical Sound-inspired programme of shorts, and he’s delivered the goods with a selection of extraordinary experiments exploring sound and music in various interesting ways.

    Directors Lounge Screening
    Ana Bilankov: Night Riders

    Ana Bilankov, Berlin based artist with Croatian background, creates videos connected with peculiar places in different European cities, Moscow and New York, connected with the geographies and stories of those places, mostly interwoven with her own biography or experience. Her short films often combine a brittle visual poetry with rarified narratives on the soundtrack.

  • Close-Up: William Raban. Making Films Politically?

    By on

    "The problem is not to make political films, but to make films politically." – Jean-Luc Godard 

    Close Up and Carroll/Fletcher are delighted to present a programme of films by William Raban. Artist filmmaker William Raban was a central figure of the London Film-makers' Co-operative. Initially known for his landscape and expanded cinema works of the 1970s, Raban's films from the 1990s onwards look at the island of Britain and its people, in the context of the global economy and the effects of urban change.

  • Cineinfinito #13: Daniel Barnett

    By on

    "Daniel Barnett is a leading experimental filmmaker who develops complex metaphors in his films out of rephotography and other post-production techniques. [...] White Heart is his longest and most ambitious work. 'Barnett's film consists of many disparate images, chosen for their strong sensual qualities, coupled with a labyrinthine and equally sensual soundtrack. After establishing the basic images, Barnett begins to interweave them, exaggerating certain qualities (color, texture) during printing.

    Experimental filmmaker Oriol Sánchez, also known as HH, presents his latest work in video and a performance in Super 8 and 16 mm. All the films projected in this session deal with the aggression and brutality of the medium itself, exploring the violence of bodies and alluding to the inherent destructiveness of the kinematic machine.

  • Xcèntric: Bruce Conner (II). Breakaways

    By on

    Bruce Conner is noted for his transgressive, pioneering use of found footage, but he also made and edited films. His career provides an index of US counterculture attitudes, from the psychic experiments of the beat generation and hippies to the appropriations of punk rock. These two programmes, ranging from his first films to his latest digital projects, reaffirm Conner’s importance as a filmmaker who is both innovative and influential.

  • Perspectives on Portraits and Place: The films of Adèle Friedman

    By on

    Tonight’s program spans 38 years, beginning with an early portrait from 1979. Included in the show are portraits and films of place: nature, gardens, architecture, rivers. These films are perspectives, as seen by the filmmaker and presented to the viewer. Compositions of space between people, objects, interiors and exteriors, all within the film frame, are a critical element of what one is seeing in film.
