Xcèntric: Focusing on the landscape

By on


No votes yet

Eight recent films, partially filmed in woodland, make up a session marked by Vertigo Rush. The progressive acceleration of the work by Austrian filmmaker Johann Lurf sets the pace for a series of films in which research into the technical options of the camera interacts with a profilmic forest setting.

Exploring the representation of nature in the film medium serves to transfigure it. Speeding up its development in time, suspending its physical presence, distorting its configuration or revealing its interstices are cinematographic operations that expand perception of the landscape. Describing the immanence of the forest is the pretext for a selection of films that show the landscape not as a physical place, but as a series of culturalperceptions, based on a place.
