Cinema Parenthèse and iMAL are very pleased to invite the german filmmaker Helga Fanderl to present a personally selected super 8 film program. As a student of both Peter Kubelka and Robert Breer, Fanderl has created her own specific working methods, attitudes, and cinematic expressions. For instance, it is crucial for her to confront and work in the present, to process the various pro-cinematic impressions directly in the camera (as a kind of live filming) without any form of post-production.
