  • Directors Lounge Screening: Distruktur – Perspectives – on Moving

    A program of shorts by the artist couple Melissa Dullius and Gustavo Jahn with some new and rare films, some German and Berlin premiers. Distruktur – Dullius and Jahn – claim a space fluctuating somewhere between the big and small cinema. Consequently working with analogue film while shooting and mostly also developing their own material, their films seem to create a kinematic time-space that is distinct from the ordinary even though they often use film settings of daily life.

  • FranceDoc #2: Imaginary spaces

    Space is a raw material and a special subject for film: any film is the encounter of a place (be it that of the room or the screen) and an imaginary. The moving image allows a motionless trip, it is a transit that deploys imagination by objectifying. So travel through the images is also a journey in the image: it is this duplicity that underlies all these films, that explore the boundary between the real space and the imaginary that is appropriated or transmitted, be it technical or subjective.

    Free admission. Session with the presence of filmmakers Mauricio Hernández and Philippe Cote.

  • Cinema Anèmic #05: La Vidéothèque (Chloé Dragna)

    French distributor La Vidéothèque presents a selection of five pieces by filmmakers and audiovisual artists who represent different ways of looking at the landscape. These international filmmakers contemplate outdoor scenarios to develop narratives about the environment that, in turn, affect the recorded medium. Analog film (super 8/16 mm) and digital video are the technological tools used to discuss the aesthetics of nature, the sensitivity of the perceptive subject or the essayistic character of the final cuts that weave the pictorial, the documentary and the ethnographic.
