Special Edition: Digipack DVD with 4 short films and 2 bonus films by filmmakers Maria Klonaris and Katerina Thomadaki. 48-page booklet.
Maria Klonaris and Katerina Thomadaki are cutting-edge experimental filmmakers, the founders of “corporeal cinema” and creators of projection environments, instigators of innovative approaches to photography and pioneers in media crossover. The conviction and theoretical thrust of their work highlight a need to rethink contemporary art in light of new technological tools as well as today’s scientific, social and philosophical concerns. -Christian Gattinoni
Maria Klonaris and Katerina Thomadaki have created new connections between the living body’s presence and the figurative analysis of icons; between performance and recording; between still images, moving images and the mobility of media; between mythographies and modernity. Their quest, pioneering in so many ways, also goes beyond the disastrous division which plagues the avant-garde, between the cinema as a visual art and the cinema of political action. -Nicole Brenez
