The 24 television screens collected by the artist form the backdrop of anOther, part installation, part performance and concert. Bodies, images and sound create living sculptures, generating both dialogue and tension.

Cinema Parenthèse #1 presents James Edmonds (UK/DE) in person at Greylight Projects
James Edmonds is an artist / filmmaker from the UK living in Berlin. His practice centres on a personal poetics in which the nature of recording, particularly when approached from the materiality of a medium, offers a tangible yet ultimately paradoxical surface for what is intangible and fleeting - our personal experience, inner worlds, thoughts and reflections.
The filmed letter can take the form of dedication, song, offering, celebration, postcard. “Correspondences: Films as Letters”, Punto de Vista’s cycle for 2018, takes as its starting point the idea that, in cinema, an exchange of letters does not have to be sent, and even admits the possibility of making a film letter without a recipient in mind.
Eugeni Bonet (Barcelona, 1954) is a scholar & specialist in avant-garde cinema, video creation and electronic arts. Since the mid-1970s, he has been working on these disciplines both from a theoretical and from a practical perspective. Throughout his long career he has interspersed programming, curating and writing - Spanish experimental cinema, the beginnings of video art, calculated cinema, film (de)montage, lettrist cinema, etc. - with the production of films and videos of his own.
Born in Tokyo Sylvia Schedelbauer first moved to Berlin in 1993, where she has been based since. She studied at the University of Arts Berlin (with Katharina Sieverding). Her films negotiate the space between broader historical narratives and personal, psychological realms mainly through poetic manipulations of found and archival footage.
"Schedelbauer’s films reveal the world in a perpetually unsettled state of flux and traverses into liminal zones where time and space collapse." (James Hansen, Women to Watch, Cleo - Journal of Film and Feminism)

“The films in this program represent a number of different stylistic tendencies in filmmaking which coexisted during the 1980s, in an environment where films were screened in clubs along with performances and live music, and often on the same night. The fluidity of performers, filmmakers, and musicians collaborating created a particularly vibrant and unique element of nightlife.
