Experimenta, the avant-garde and experimental films strand of the London Film Festival returns in its 2012 edition (October 19th-21st) with the biggest and broadest programme to date. The main protagonist of the section curated by Mark Webber with assistance from Shama Khanna, is the presentation in Europe of Peter Kubelka's latest work Antiphon (2012), as part of his lecture Monument Film. Kubelka will also be the protagonist of a full retrospective of his work, and of Martina Kudlácek's latest documentary film Fragments of Kubelka (2012).
The festival opens with the screening of a newly-restored print of Isidore Isou's masterpiece Traité de bave et d'éternité (1951), and will present as always, a selection of the most recent experimental works including the latest films and videos by Nathaniel Dorsky, Jerome Hiler, Luke Fowler, Mati Diop, Beatrice Gibson, Ben Rivers, Laida Lertxundi,... Experimenta will also present present several screenings the precious week coinciding with the Frieze Art Fair, from 10-13 October.
