Filmhuis Cavia, in partnership with the Association of Moving Image Archivists Student Chapter at the University of Amsterdam (AMIA-UvA), presents the films of Martha Colburn in a free public exhibition plus a Q&A with the artist. The screening will show Colburn's past work on 35mm, 16mm and video, featuring phantasmagoric animation, music videos, and found footage experiments never before shown in the Netherlands.
I wanted to see if the experience of what I saw would have any correspondence to what I felt-- the intimacy of the lovemaking... And I wanted to put into that materiality of film the energies of the body, so that the film itself dissolves and recombines and is transparent and dense-- as one feels during lovemaking... It is different from any pornographic work that you've ever seen-- that's why people are still looking at it! And there's no objectification or fetishization of the woman. (Carolee Schneemann)

Turbidus Film #24, Walden And Fylkingen presents Nicolas Rey’s Les Soviets plus l'électricité (2001) on 16mm. Les Soviets plus l'électricité is a cinematic and epic journey across Russia that ends deep in Siberia at the port town of Magadan, a city famous in Soviet times for being synonymous with deportation. Based on excerpts from his acoustic diary, documentary footage and some autobiographical insights given on the way, the roving reporter searches for imaginary roots and its historical and political implications.
