Screenings

  • Cinema Parenthèse #7: Land/Scapes 2 - Els van Riel & Rose Lowder

    By on

    Brussels based artist Els van Riel  (b 1965) is a member of the analogue film-lab Labo Bxl and Cinema Parenthèse. Her films, videos and installations examine the impact of detailed changes in moment, movement, matter, light and perception. Her works relate to a tradition of minimal and structural filmmaking (Paul Sharits, Ernie Gehr), she processes the basic elements of film - time and light, silence and sound - and develops a form for expanded aesthetic saturation based on phenomenological observation within a sensitive and personal horizon that bypasses symbolism and narrativity.

  • Saul Levine: Breaking Time

    By on

    Microscope Gallery is pleased to welcome to the gallery Boston-based filmmaker Saul Levine for an evening of 8mm and super 8mm films organized by Lumia Lightsmith.

    “Levine has tackled many subjects as a filmmaker: love loss, war, music, the seasons, light, and loss again. But the film he makes of each is the same film, the one ongoing film of the film in the making…The pleasure in this for the viewer is, of course, the combined one of voyeuristically glimpsing into the life of an artist and, for those of us familiar with his other work, encountering an old friend up to new tricks.” – Marjorie Keller

  • Directors Lounge Screening: Johnny Welch - Arcane Rhythms

    By on

    Johnny Welch, filmmaker and photographer from Sydney, Australia lives in Berlin for more than 3 years and is an active member of Labor Berlin. Since coming to Berlin, his work has become more strongly connected with the aesthetic of analog film, with the possibilities of optical printing. Even if edited and projected digitally, analog compositing seems to allow him to create a richer image of high density and depth.

  • Nomadica - Weekend with the Dead

    By on

    NOMADICA presents: WEEKEND WITH THE DEAD

    A weekend-long, non-stop marathon on the occasion of the “Day of the Dead”; meetings and clashes, screenings and reactions, sounds and visions: dozens of international films’ and Italian premieres, a distillation of the most interesting contemporary experimentations.
    Also: seminars, focuses, Space itineraries – in various shapes and formats, from night 'till day and from day 'till night. Spazio Menomale, dug towards the centre of the earth, turns into an art gallery and a perpetual theater where you can sink, a perception room in which there is no time to find, filled with routes and crossroads that become – as always in Nomadica’s experience – the artwork itself, unique, displaced and displacing, irregular and not (always) screened-off. Underground chaos where “the everlasting shape of life” resides.

    By on

    Tinne Zenner is a visual artist and filmmaker based in Copenhagen. She holds an MFA from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. Working with analogue film and digital animation, her work explores the physical structures, in which layers of history, politics and collective memory are embedded.
