  • Xcèntric: Robert Beavers - La mano tendida

    By on

    My Hand Outstretched to the Winged Distance and Sightless Measure es el título del ciclo que reúne 18 películas de Robert Beavers, producidas desde 1967 hasta 2001. Esta sesión presenta tres películas de cada una de las tres partes que componen este ciclo, en las que el cineasta trabaja manualmente, imprimiendo sus gestos tanto en la filmación como en el montaje.

    En Early Monthly Segments Beavers se autorretrata y expone su método de trabajo señalando el propio dispositivo cinematográfico. En Work Done hace uso de la metáfora y de la alusión visual para generar correspondencias entre los procedimientos fílmicos y las formas arquetípicas de los trabajos artesanales. En AMOR presenta el corte y la confección como metáforas de las emociones que rodean el amor, la separación y el hermanamiento metonímico de los objetos.

    This screening fits into our running programme and the theme of essayism, and it is an announcement to the programme In Between Lines of the forthcoming Courtisane Festival in which Offoff and Courtisane present The Song of the Shirt, a unique and influential film by Sue Clayton and Jonathan Curling (1979). It is a study of the position of working women in the 1840's, the effects of protectionist 'philanthropy' and the resistance to it.

  • Between the Frames - Japanese experimental film on 16mm: prolific years 1975-1980

    By on

    The Japanese experimental cinema movement became strong in the late 60’s, having it’s peak in the late 70’s. Toshio Matsumoto, who started making avant-garde documentaries and artistic feature film, and other predecessors, had a big influence on a new generation of film makers. Many of them were fascinated in exploring the mechanism of the moving image. This program highlights the peak period of Japanese experimental film, putting Atman (1975) by Toshio Matsumoto, which creates an extraordinary spatiotemporal sensation, and Spacy, by Takashi Ito, seriously influenced by Atman, as two merkmals. The films in this program, except Matsumoto’s and Ito’s film, have not been digitized, and their importance is underestimated both inside and outside Japan. For this reason it is a rare opportunity to watch these films in the original format.

  • Xcèntric: La voluptuosidad del mirar. James Herbert

    By on

    Cineasta y pintor, James Herbert es conocido por sus videoclips para R.E.M., pero su cine se ha visto muy pocas veces. Entre la atracción voyerista y la reflexión, muestra la sensibilidad del cineasta para reinterpretar el cuerpo a través de la refotografía: figuras de parejas desnudas en un entorno visual, reflejos de la impresión del tacto o la soledad, mientras la película se intensifica con el grano, la textura y la luz.

  • The Festival of (In)appropriation #8

    By on

    Los Angeles Filmforum presents The Festival of (In)appropriation #8

    Curators Jaimie Baron and Greg Cohen in person!

    Whether you call it collage, compilation, found footage, détournement, or recycled cinema, the incorporation of already existing media into new artworks is a practice that generates novel juxtapositions and new meanings and ideas, often in ways entirely unrelated to the intentions of the original makers. Such new works are, in other words, “inappropriate.” This act of (in)appropriation may even produce revelations about the relationship between past and present, here and there, intention and subversion, artist and critic, not to mention the "producer" and "consumer" of visual culture itself. Fortunately for our purposes, the past decade has witnessed the emergence of a wealth of new audiovisual elements available for appropriation into new works. In addition to official state and commercial archives, resources like vernacular collections, home movie repositories, and digital archives now also provide fascinating material to repurpose in ways that lend it new meaning and resonance.

  • Xcèntric: La calle era feliz cuando iluminaba sus fantasmas. El cine de Ernie Gehr

    By on

    Proyectamos tres de las películas más representativas de la primera etapa del cineasta norteamericano Ernie Gehr. Encuadrado dentro del llamado cine estructural, su discurso fílmico trasciende esta clasificación, ubicándolo dentro de la categoría de clásico de la vanguardia.

    Un plano puede ser una película; una película, una disposición de instantáneas expuestas durante fracciones de segundo o minutos eternos. Con cada latido —proyección intermitente de los fotogramas—, la luz, que depende de los reflejos, del objetivo o de la emulsión, se comunica con nuestros nervios y revela la verdadera acción.

  • Up to the Sky: 4 Films by Barbara Meter

    By on

    Barbara Meter is a pivotal figure in Dutch experimental cinema. In the 70's she was the driving force behind the Electric Cinema in Amsterdam, where numerous British and American filmmakers screened their work alongside their Dutch colleagues. Meter has a long filmography including experimental films, documentaries and fiction. She describes her experimental films as "lyrical structuralist". Curated by Karel Doing, the programme includes four films in which Meter combines documentary aspects with a more formal approach. Her latest film Up to the Sky and Much Much More will be screened in the UK for the first time. She will be present during the screening and participate in a short Q&A afterwards.
