The 2014 edition of the International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR) will feature this year two profile scrrenings as part of its Spectrum Shorts section, dedicated to Swiss artist Hannes Schüpbach (Friday January 24th) and to experimental animator Jodie Mack (Sunday January 26th).
Schüpbach will present three of his filmworks, that "emphasize the corporeal act of vision and of revision", L’Atelier (2007), his latest Instants (2012), and Falten (2005), in a programme curated by Erwin van ’t Hart. A special edition of the forthcoming publication by Hannes Schüpbach & French writer Joël-Claude Meffre, INSTANTS (Revolver Publishing, Berlin, February 2014) will be distributed to the public.
Let your light shine, an anthology of recent films by Jodie Mack, "investigates the formal principles of abstract cinema while maturing an interest in found materials, evolving modes of production, forms of labor, and the role of decoration in daily life.", and includes her 'animated personal rockumentary' Dusty Stacks of Mom: the Poster Project.
