  • Directors Lounge: Philip Widmann and Karsten Krause - Szenario

    By on

    Szenario, a collaboration of the filmmakers Philip Widmann and Karsten Krause appears to be a documentation about a love affair; a chronicle of 3 months in fall 1970, when a married man called Hans starts an affair with his secretary, called Monica, also married. The main character of the film could be called “the suitcase”, though, a collection of notes, photographs, tickets and other papers from a suitcase, apparently collected by “him”, the male lover. The notes conof diary entries, where Hans meticulously wrote down every date he met with Monica, how long they had sex, and in which position they had intercourse. He also added to the record the places and circumstances they met, yet and always in the spare lasistnguage of a book keeper or bank clerk. The typewritten notes are spoken by a female voice, while the film images show passages of urban landscape of Köln, mostly slow tracking shots, some of them from car, and both at night and at day time.

  • Black Box @ Edinburgh International Film Festival

    By on

    Black Box is Edinburgh International Film Festival's regular experimental strand, curated by Kim Knowles. From abstract to narrative, celluloid to digital, Black Box celebrates the diversity of experimental film from around the world. Since 2013 the strand also includes an expanded film performance event Black Box Live.

    Black Box Shorts 1: Commodification-Appropriation
    27 June, 18:30h

    The films in this programme subtly underline the way capitalism infiltrates and defines the environments we inhabit and the images we consume. From real estate to pornography, and from Coca-Cola to Miley Cyrus, the works showcased here present idiosyncratic critiques of commodity culture and social alienation. The images of capitalism are reclaimed and reworked to form alternative readings and understandings of contemporary consumer society.

  • Black Box Live @ Edinburgh International Film Festival

    By on

    EIFF's experimental strand Black Box ventures outside the box for a second year of live expanded film performance. Multiple projector pieces combining analogue and digital material meet densely layered electronic and acoustic sounds. A veritable treat for the senses!

    Guillaume Cailleau (France) & Jan Slak (Slovenia)

    A sensuous combination of tangible sound and stereo film projection gradually increasing in speed, force and intensity. Alternating frames of color originating from two Super 8mm projectors combine with bass drum and snare, wrapping the pulsating and interfering frequencies of light into a vibrating human body. A transcendent analogue experience - physical, radical, handmade, and live.

  • Inner Visions/Outer Worlds: The Films of Clint Enns and Leslie Supnet

    By on

    An art-making duo, Clint Enns and Leslie Supnet work both independently and together, sharing duties, skills, and visions to assemble some of the most inventive and charming recent experimental film and video in Canada. Both artists bring a strong DIY practice and aesthetic to their films and videos. Often reworking established aesthetic and technical objects and forms — canonical experimental films, television commercials, pop ephemera — Enns brings together an ironical, satirical edge with an underlying sincerity to create a space for new visions and energies to emerge. Glitch, circuit-bending, and/or appropriation is often the name of the game in Enns’s lovingly combative relationship with the canons of consensus. Supnet’s whimsical, and sometimes surreal, animations and short films draw from her everyday experiences, looking inward to communicate intimate observations and subtly moving thoughts and feelings through the image. In her carefully crafted hand-made puppetry, for instance, Supnet tackles issues at once idiosyncratically personal and resonantly political. Taken together, their work coalesces and counterpoints to construct a delicate, searching, and always intriguing engagement with the contemporary world.

  • Rewriting Film History, Reinventing Film Apparatus

    By on

    Microscope is very pleased to present Rewriting Film History, Reinventing Film Apparatus a program of 16mm films curated by Enrico Camporesi. The evening includes historical and more recent works by Jean-Michel Bouhours, Werner Nekes, David Wharry, Mary Helena Clark, Ernst Schimdt Jr., and Peter Miller that have rarely, if ever, screened in the US, and coming from the Light Cone Collection (Paris). Enrico Camporesi's description of the show follows: The notion of rewriting film history has constantly haunted moving image production. In the same way, challenging the basic cinematographic apparatus (the screen, the projection, etc.) has been a crucial issue in avant-garde filmmaking. The program seeks to explore the diverse strategies that have been adopted by experimental and avant-garde filmmakers in order to investigate such themes. The films are selected from the collection of Light Cone, the main European distributor for experimental and avant-garde films, and have been rarely (if ever) screened in the United States.

  • Oporto apresenta #33: Maarten Ploeg's "Land"

    By on

    "Land", by Maarten Ploeg
    Commodore Amiga file transferred to video.Colour, stereo sound, loop, 1992

    In an old edition of Enciclopédia Luso-Brasileira, the entry word computer (then called ordenador) is illustrated with a vector-based drawing of a face. It shows the first computer-generated drawing, depicting the kind face of a samurai. That funny looking picture can be seen as the computer's first attempt at a self-portrait, a clear demonstration of its highly complex level of self-determination.

    Maarten Ploeg was a multi-talented genius born in the flat lands of Holland. Trained as a visual artist, he was part of the punk music scene in the late seventies (Soviet Sex, Blue Murder and Astral Bodies), as well as a pioneer in computer art and in the art of TV piracy. He was co-founder of PKP TV, a channel that hacked regular broadcasting and of Park 4DTV (http://www.park.nl/), a still operational art platform.
