  • Turbidus Film #22: Oleg Tcherny

    By on

    Magasinet Walden and Filmform present Oleg Tcherny at Filmform

    Born in Minsk, Belarus, Oleg Tcherny has been making films and videos since the 1990s. In his more recent work, influenced by Giorgio Agamben, he suspends the progression of images through a process of vertical editing. Usually shot in HD, his videos sound out the thickness of time, pushing the boundaries of visual, auditory, and conceptual abstraction. Tcherny has studied cinema in the editing room with Jean-Marie Straub and Danièle Huillet; he was an assistant to the filmmaker Daniel Schmid.

  • DIM Cinema: The Hart of London

    By on

    A native of London, Ontario, Jack Chambers (1931-1978) was already renowned as a painter before he ventured into filmmaking. He completed six films; the last was his masterpiece, The Hart of London, begun the year he was diagnosed with leukemia. This feature-length experiment in “perceptual realism” combines newsreels, found photography, and original footage. “It's a film of startling juxtapositions that seems to be speaking to elemental issues of life and death, yet it also manages to interweave five or six grand themes and let the viewer feel that they are logically interrelated” (Fred Camper, Chicago Reader). Chief among them is our alienation from nature, evoked in the opening footage of the capture and killing of a deer that has wandered into London, and reprised in every major scene thereafter as one of the costs of civilization.

  • DIM Cinema: Eye on the Landscape

    By on

    In Michael Snow’s tenth film, made in the twilight of the American lunar missions, the camera, attached to a robotic arm, casts its roving 360-degree eye across a remote, seemingly otherworldly mountaintop in northern Quebec. To a soundtrack based on the waves and pulses of the camera-activating machine, La Région centrale “transports its audience to a rugged Canadian landscape that is discovered at noon and then explored in seventeen episodes of dizzying motion as the machine’s shadow lengthens, night falls, and light returns” (Martha Langford, Art Canada Institute). Snow’s film is preceded by Daïchi Saïto’s kaleidoscopic exploration of the patterns and contrasts in the landscape of a Montreal park.

  • A Gathering of Crystals

    By on

    Just before I began work on my book Harmony and Dissent, I discovered a trove of photographs depicting participants in a radical German movement, Freikörperkultur (free body culture), the early years of which constituted something of a prototype for the hippie movement that would emerge in California in the 1960s. Many of the photographs were strikingly well composed, unlike more recent images of practitioners of social nudity. But these formal rigours were responsible for only a small part of their charm. More important was this: there was something unbearably sweet about these images of groups of people who were convinced that they might alleviate modernity’s depredation of charity through exposing, completely and frankly, their vulnerable naked selves to one another.
