The second installment of Light Movement will be a solo screening from Berlin's own Ute Aurand, from original 16mm prints from the filmmakers archive. We are very happy to welcome Ute Aurand in person to indroduce the work.
To Be Here (2013) is the final part of Aurands trilogy of recent films focussed on her travels, along with India (2005) filmed in Pune and Junge Kiefern / Young Pines (2011) filmed in Japan.
"The playful and poignant films of German filmmaker Ute Aurand, a key figure in Berlin’s experimental film scene since the 1980s, emerge from her intimate relationship with people and places. Drawing on traditions of the diary film, feminism and artisanal practices, her handcrafted 16mm films are filled with joy at the small details of life – from observations of landscapes to friends filmed over many years. Her exuberant films reflect on memory as much as they celebrate the here and now."
