The experimentation of Malena Szlam, involving a process of documentation in situ, brings the observed landscape into the space of moving image. In-camera editing lets loose the first views of woods, stars, fire and night-time landscapes, reproducing them vibrantly, preventing us from becoming habituated and allowing them to remain. On the basis of a direct link with the image, Pablo Mazzolo constructs formal paradigms, in which the kinetic image and sound constitute a single perceptive unit. His films move around the space between reality, dream and intuitive vision, coming together in an associative, sensorial experience that is different each time. ENVÍOS, by Jeannette Muñoz, is cinema that ceases to be cinema, to become a space that shows us what it was, what it is and what it could be. ENVÍOS is only possible at the small and singular scale. It is sequences, events, stories, fragments, moments, seconds. It has no object or subject, its components are heterogeneous, from differing sources and the result of different motivations. It speaks at once of the private and the public, was made with/or for one person and will be presented in a film theatre.
BEEF's series of monthly screenings and events kicks off with a theme close to our heart.
An evening of 16mm films showing a range of handmade and cameraless approaches, including direct on film animation, rayography, hand-tinting, bodily interventions, pinhole photography and home-brewed film emulsion.
A critically important realm of avant-garde cinema has been largely neglected in North America over the years: the wave of films that emerged in the countries of ex-Yugoslavia. While a handful of filmmakers have penetrated the consciousness of scholars and cineastes – Dušan Makavejev above all, though Karpo Godina and Želimir Žilnik have begun to make ripples as well – these artists are merely the tip of the iceberg, representing an experimental film movement of extraordinary richness, inventiveness, and uncompromising political engagement.

Tuesday, April 14, 2015 (All day) to Saturday, May 2, 2015 (All day)
In this one-night program, Berlin-based OJOBOCA (Anja Dornieden and Juan David González Monroy) will present a selection of 16mm films and projector performances that demonstrates the collective’s practice of Horrorism, “a simulated method of inner and outer transformation.” OJOBOCA’s films and performances are as rich in visual and sensory texture as they are in drawing upon and inspiring an imaginative and creative spirit. Taking place 3000 years in the future and featuring a cast of jungle-dwelling gnomes, La Gente Perra is a film based on fragments of a story by the Colombian writer, Gomati D. Wahn. The collective’s penchant for representing phantasmagoric stories and images continues with Wolkenschatten, a narrated slideshow composed of remnant images that eerily document the mysterious disappearance of an entire German town in the 1980s. The program concludes with two projection performances and will be followed by a conversation with the artists.
