Karel Doing & Gaëlle Rouard have both earned their stripes in experimental film and as advocates of this medium and shown their works at various locations in Europe. OFFoff brings them together now for a night that will show the experimental possibilities of the 'expanded' format that is not 'limited' to display a work on 16mm, but to actively engage in the projection, to question the film medium.
Karel Doing - Pattern-Chaos (UK, 2015, 18', colour, live 16mm performance)
Don’t miss this relaxed and intimate talk with Iris Film Collective member Alex MacKenzie as he discusses in-progress non-camera models for light capture as well as an excerpt from his most recent two-projector performance Apparitions (which he recently toured across the Eastern US/Canada and will have its West Coast Premiere at Anti-Matter in Victoria later this month.)
This is a FREE event: tea, hot apple cider and Oreos will be served!
This collection of films by Jodie Mack investigates the formal principles of abstract cinema while maturing an interest in found materials, evolving modes of production, forms of labor, and the role of decoration in daily life. Prodding at hierarchies of aesthetic value and the tension between high and low, these works question the role of abstract animation in a post-psychedelic climate.
MARETIOPA & HICCUP present the film program Landscapes of Resistance, Time and Ecology, focusing on phenomenon occurring through changes of perspective and animated camera movements as a way to redefine a place and its geography. The method is a frame-by-frame-camera 'animation' where the films works with displacements of time, space and focal points, sometimes with many disparate motifs, or the same places filmed during different times of a day in order to visualize weather and light changes, addressing a political/ecological environment to agenda. The result is an interaction between the predictable mechanistic nature of technology and the unpredictable qualities of the natural world.
Presented with the task of making a film about the End of the World using a limited supply of black and white print stock: the sea levels rise, the magnetic poles switch, we face the mortality of ourselves and those we love and question ideas of identity, representation and time itself. This diverse program pushes the limits of our technical capacity as creators and the collective imagination.
Works by Ariel Kirk-Gushowaty, Zoe Kirk-Gushowaty, Alex MacKenzie, Lisa G.Nielsen, Sydney Southam, Michele Simone Smith, Amanda Thomson, Ryder White, John Woods.
