  • Directors Lounge - FILM POEM TOUR with Telemach Wiesinger

    Telemach Wiesinger, a long-term contributor to various Directors Lounge events, is coming from South Germany (Riegel, close to Freiburg) for a special film matinée at Z-Bar. Wiesinger works exclusively with analogue film, which he shoots, treats by means of an animation stand and edits by himself. Additionally, he has been collaborating with other artists on sound and visual concepts. His “Film Poems” dive deep into the beauty of 16mm black and white aesthetic, be it image tonality, contrast, grain, small analogue imperfections and, simplicity. While dwelling on his poetic subjects of bridges, water, trains and travel, he was capable of keeping or even exploring deeper the curious joy for the capabilities of film transforming the seen world into something different.

  • Self Portrait and Other Ruins: The cinema of Louise Bourque

    Louise Bourque's œuvre is an irreducible totality in which personal and family secrets hide behind layers of photochemical emulsion. It offers an obsessive world that is both visceral and oneiric, dotted with repetitive motifs. Death and birth, fertility and decomposition. These oppositions run through Bourque's work and find an echo in her practice; she creates out of images that are "dead" (unused, discarded, forgotten) and buried (in the garden of the familial house).

  • Five Films by Arthur Lipsett

    The films of Arthur Lipsett are softly apocalyptic assemblages of midcentury images and sounds—documentaries, street photographs, advertisements, interviews. In the classic Very Nice, Very Nice, hundreds of purloined moments spin past the eye at a jet-age clip: crowds march, highways sprawl, an atom bomb drops, children play, wrestlers grapple, audiences guffaw. Equally magpied, the soundtracks draw heavily on dialog from psychiatric films and religious oratory, continuously circling back to existential themes, collaged with jazz, spirituals, and ritual music.
