  • Epical Poems: Friedrich/Carasco

    By on

    From Experimental to Essay Films #1

    Sink or Swim is a sophisticated poetic ode addressed by Su Friedrich to his father, a linguist who left his family when the filmmaker was a child. Raymonde Carasco formally revisits the myth of Gradiva, causing the pathological symptoms to migrate (in response to Freud's study of the text of the writer Jensen) towards plastic variations in which thought becomes form. Two dissymmetrical approaches of the "essayist cinema" under the sign of the questioning of the fathers (direct for Su Friedrich, linked to the archetypes in Raymonde Carasco).

  • Close-Up on Nina Danino

    By on

    Close-Up is pleased to present the films of Nina Danino, including her most recent feature film Jennifer. Ranging from early 16mm works – which combine observational narrative with personal or subjective memory to inscribe and defer the representation of the woman – to her recent studies of the unseen women who dedicate themselves to enclosed monastic lives, Danino seeks to capture the ephemeral aspects of place through the medium of film.

  • DIM Cinema: Marie Menken - Eye Music in Red Major

    By on

    “Marie it was who first of all of us discovered that hypnagogic envisioning need not only be done at night.” -Stan Brakhage

    The influence of Marie Menken on American experimental filmmaking cannot be overstated. Stan Brakhage, Jonas Mekas, Andy Warhol, Kenneth Anger — all these better-known names owed much of their own development as filmmakers to her. Trained as a painter, she manipulated her Bolex camera like a set of brushes and palette knives. The films in this program, several of them tributes to other artists, are bold experiments with light and motion. Beyond the pyrotechnics of camerawork and editing, what inspires is the bodily connection to subject matter, held close like a partner in dance.

  • X-Ray: Space

    By on

    In this third installment of the X-Ray series hosted by the Department of Media Art of Ghent's Royal Academy of Fine Arts (KASK), guest curator Sebastian Buerkner (UK) together with Courtisane personally presents a program featured around spatiality.

    Buerkner's computer animated work guides us through an ambiguous universe of abstract interiors, stylized forms and fluid color fields. He situates his films Triband and The Chimera of M within an experimental context that misleads viewers in its spatiality, with work by Ken Jacobs (Capitalism: Slavery), Blake Williams (Red Capriccio), Takashi Ito (Spacy) and Alexandre Larose (Brouillard Passage #14).

  • PAF 2016: Film Labor

    By on

    PAF - Festival of Film Animation's section Film Labor presents contemporary experimental productions and activities by filmmakers from so-called artist-run film labs (film laboratories run by the artists themselves). There are more than fifty such groups all over the world dealing with film, in the sense of working with film material. Thanks to the technological and institutional transformation of cinematographic infrastructure, independent artists may now use industrial equipment and instruments that were previously only available in institutions. The aim of the cycle is to reflect their activities, which significantly change the options for film production and are often referred to as “experimental film.” Film Labor will introduce artists from film labs in Grenoble, Barcelona and Berlin.

  • Xcèntric: Construcciones espirituales

    By on

    Un programa de proyecciones en paralelo a la exposición “La máquina de pensar. Ramon Llull y el «ars combinatoria»

    Antes de que los artistas trabajasen con ordenadores, una serie de pintores de vanguardia, como Oskar Fischinger, Harry Smith y Jordan Belson, crearon un cine no narrativo que tenía en cuenta la geometría, las posibilidades de combinaciones matemáticas y también la espiritualidad. Tras estos visionarios, otros artistas como John Whitney abrazaron el nuevo medio de la imagen sintética para seguir indagando en la animación abstracta. Muchos otros autores y autoras han seguido su estela hasta nuestros días.

  • OFFoff Cinema: Televizinho, a live video-essay by Veridiana Zurita

    By on

    Televizinho is an ongoing project of re-enactments of soap operas in different contexts in Brazil. Its first edition took place in 2014 when Veridiana Zurita worked together with the riverside community 'Santa Isabel' in the Amazon. During 4 months she lived together with different families along the Tupana river, eating what they ate , sleeping as they did, watching what they watched: soap operas. Every night they looked at the soap together and picked out a scene to re-enact the next day. While using the participants' houses as movie set, the re-enactments took the form of something between fiction and documentary. The way soaps seem to order language and physicality was disturbed by those re-enacting it while different logics of appropriation were inaugurated.
