Screenings

  • A homeless mobile cinema vol.1

    By on

    This Summer, Pugnant Film Series will be
    A homeless mobile cinema at the ruins of Athens.
    Have you noticed that as the cities are getting more and more old, their ruins are remaining young at all? With a prehistoric youth, similar to the material from which the films are made.
    With this sacred feeling, we will make some screenings of films that we love at some abandoned houses, factories, rivers and places of Athens.

  • Cineinfinito #154: Pierre Rovere

    By on

    French-born Canadian multidisciplinary artist Pierre Rovere has been involved in a large number of disciplines: experimental filmmaking, but also video art, installations, performing arts, conceptual art, photography, and graphic arts. After studying cinema in Paris, he was one of the co-founders of the Paris Films Coop in 1974, with Claudine Eizykman and Guy Fihman, and the author and director of a dozen experimental films between 1972 and 1981. Digital techniques have been one of his main focuses as early as the 70’s.

  • attaque(e)r le visible - corporal interventions: Dagie Brundert & Gabriele Kahnert

    By on

    It was love at first sight: Dagie Brundert, Gabriele Kahnert and the Super 8 camera. Their paths crossed around 1987, when Dagie and Gabriele were studying at the HdK, a time when Super 8 was booming, especially in Berlin. A characteristic feature of their films is their length - or rather their brevity. The most extreme examples are not even a minute long [!] Dagie and Gabriele always shot quickly and with little financial effort, but behind each film there is always a great story, for example, an unhappy love, longing or swimming in salad water. With a lot of humor, punk and serenity, they roamed around with their Super 8 camera.

  • The Shifting Ecologies of Photochemical Film in the Digital Era

    By on

    In today’s high-tech media landscape, where cycles of consumption and disposal and upgrades and updates are commonplace, the subject of obsolescence takes on a heightened significance. Many technological changes have occurred during the history of cinema, but none have had such a transformative effect on the industry as the transition from analogue (or photochemical) film to digital. Since the early 2000s, the medium of film has moved from a dominant to a marginal position as digital technology has rendered photochemical and mechanical technology obsolete on a commercial scale.

    Dates: 

    Monday, June 7, 2021 (All day) to Friday, June 11, 2021 (All day)
  • Is it possible to formulate a first question and to continue having dinner? The films of Carles Santos

    By on

    The work of Carles Santos has been chosen to close the film season. This homage includes a poetry reading by Vicenç Altaió, a selection of his films made between 1969 and 1979, many of them rarely screened, a previously unseen piece by the North American filmmaker Joan Logue, two short pieces from the early days of cinema starring the magician Leopoldo Fregoli and a unique concert by the pianist Clara Peya (National Culture Prize 2019), performing a piece composed especially for the occasion in collaboration with the dancer Sílvia Capell.

    Venue: 

  • Blitz #36: Jorge Suárez-Quiñones

    By on

    The session is offered as an invitation to a tangible experience of shared present through three works produced entirely in the Super-8 format.

    The first draws a complete circle around the solar year, trying to reveal the specificity of each light situation, questioning its reproducibility.

    The second condenses, guided by the energy of movement, the intensity and awareness of the practice on both sides of the camera.

  • Images Festival Research Forum 2021

    By on

    The animating concern for the 2021 edition of the Research Forum is decentralization, as method, as a practice of freedom in general. This thematic focus and its differing potentials will be explored across the festival through conversations, social media interventions, publications, and more.
