Kino Palais, with the collaboration of Pablo Mazzolo and Benjamín Ellenberger, present a special programme with films of the renowned Czech experimental filmmaker Martin Klapper. Screened in their original format and with the presence of the artist.
"A selection of my films from the period 1992-2002, documenting different approaches and efforts to find a new cinematic vocabulary, using found materials, in-camera edit and a wide variety of radical techniques (many of them my own inventions) to re-work the surface of the film itself. These techniques include overlays, scratching, printing, colouring, tinting, painting, Batik or hand-made development, including various chemical and mechanical treatments. All films are the original prints in Super 8 mm and 16 mm "(Martin Klapper).
