This screening, programmed by The Machine That Kills Bad People, features Jeanne Liotta’s short film Observando el Cielo (Observing the Sky) (2007) and Annik Leroy’s In der Dämmerstunde – Berlin (From Dawn to Night – Berlin) (1980).
Jeanne Liotta’s Observando el Cielo is an exploration of the cosmos. Liotta investigates the cosmic landscape at the intersection of art, science and philosophy. Through seven years of celestial observations captured on 16mm film, she reveals a world that is mysterious and profound.
Sonic Cinema presents Rainer Kohlberger’s Answering the Sun – a maximal, stroboscopic colour odyssey to the limits of human perception. Riffing on the optical phenomenon that occurs when staring at the sun, Kohlberger’s first feature adeptly modernises avant-garde cinema’s long tradition of visual music and flicker in a 60-minute bombardment of coloured fields, Op art geometry, hallucinatory passages, and a wall of sound.
On their website, the filmmaking duo of Anja Dornieden and Juan David González Monroy – who work together under the moniker OJOBOCA – describe themselves as practitioners of ‘Orrorism’. Their description of a “simulated method of inner and outer transformation” can only go so far in conveying the irresistible effect of their wry and often confoundingly labyrinthine creations.
Avant-Noir is an irregular film programme curated by Greg de Cuir Jr that surveys recent work by African and African diaspora film and video artists, alongside those engaging with African cultures. It is rare that we see Black bodies on screens at film festivals and exhibitions, perhaps even rarer when Black artists create those images.
We embrace our nostalgia for all things analogue in this varied programme of experiments, indulging us with the crackling aesthetic of Super 8 alongside found footage from the archives and the fuzziness of early VHS.

Frieze Video and LUX present Soft Floor, Hard Film: 50 Years of the London Film-Makers’ Co-op.
Formed on October 13th 1968, the London Film-Makers’ Co-operative (LFMC) grew out of a series of screenings in the basement of counter-culture book store, Better Books, on Charing Cross road to become a pioneering organisation incorporating a film workshop, cinema space and distribution office. Radical in its early ideals, the Co-op played a crucial role in establishing moving image as an art form in the UK and internationally.

Avant-Noir surveys contemporary work by moving image artists about African and African diaspora cultures. It is rare that we see Black bodies on screens at film festivals and exhibitions, perhaps even more rare when those images are created by Black artists.
