  • Xcèntric: On the meaning of construction. Robert Beavers

    With the presence of the filmmaker. 

    For Robert Beavers, the camera is not a simple recording device; it has a very lively quality that surrounds the elements of filming. This session presents two films he made in the 1970s based on a 15th-century painting and the writings of John Ruskin. The construction of images and sounds in these works connects the present with the past and the past with the present in a continual toing and froing.

  • Xcèntric: Anne Rees-Mogg. Sentimental Journey

    Anne Rees-Mogg (1924-1984) was a dedicated teacher and an active defender of 16mm film. Her films deal with time, memory, personal relations and the discovery of cinematography. This session presents a series of works that sketch out a short personal journey through the history of the cinema: from the pre-cinematographic devices of the magic lantern to a poetic tutorial about how to make experimental films, via the photography and the time and movement studies of Muybridge.

  • Austrian Film Museum - In Person: Robert Beavers

    "The goal is for the projected image to have the same force of awakening sight as any other great image."

    Over five decades, American filmmaker Robert Beavers (*1949) has come closer to this self-set goal than anyone else in his métier. Those fortunate enough to have experienced the complete retrospective of Beavers' work organized by the Austrian Film Museum in the autumn of 2010 are familiar with the sensory intoxication and the intensity of visual and aural experiences these works give rise to. They offer an immersion into the beauty and intelligence of craft – both when it comes to the places and activities recorded by Beavers (anywhere between Florence and Massachusetts) and in relation to his own film craft shining in the projection.
