Fracto Experimental Film Encounter announces its fourth edition and invites the Berlin audience to immerse themselves in 4 days of film screenings, sound installation and talks, taking place at Kunsthaus ACUD in Berlin-Mitte from the 22nd to the 25th of October 2020.
The main programme gathers 58 film and video works by artists and filmmakers selected from an international open call that has received more than 1000 submissions. The selection will be presented in a series of curated programmes providing diverse and critical perspectives on contemporary media ecology through a wide range of non-narrative approaches to filmmaking: poetic and political reflections on topical issues, sensuous investigations of landscapes and bodies, excavations of personal and collective memories, explorations of the thresholds between human and non-human worlds. Though intended for collective viewing in a cinema space, the programmes will also be available for online viewing within a limited time frame.
The special programme Gioli-Eizkyman will be dedicated to the italian artist Paolo Gioli and the french filmmaker Claudine Eizykman, in a 2-night all-analog programme that celebrates cinematic agitation.
