Hula by Amy Halpern, music composed and played by Henry Franklin
USA / 2022 / 16mm / 6′
“Abstract music notation and something very obvious.” — A.H.
Parallel Botany by Magdalena Bermudez
USA / 2023 / 16mm vers vidéo / 11’08
Still lives of real fruit meet botanical illustrations of plant galls to expose the paradox of dissection: each time we cut something in two, we merely create a new exterior.
kaua’i ‘ō’ō de Samy Benammar
CA / 2023 / 16mm / 4’19
In 2000, the International Union for Conservation of Nature announced the official extinction of the Oʻō of Kauai. Of this endemic bird of the eponymous Hawaiian island remains solely its song recorded by ornithologist David Boynton. Between the land and the tree tops, I hope to uncover the vanished birds trace.
Aries by Elian Mikkola
CA / 2020 / 16mm / 3’20
Filmed during the first lockdown in Montréal, spring 2020. This collage film compiles together the 30 days leading up to the filmmaker’s 30th birthday. Through repetition, color and juxtaposition, the time experienced takes a new shape on the celluloid.
Turbulence by Telemach Wiesinger
DE / Lichtbild Wiesinger / 2022 / 16mm / 15′
The film poem TURBULENCE stands in the field of tension between surreal fantasy and multi-layered reality. Telemach Wiesinger’s images of aeroplanes from the perspective of the traveller encounter kinetic wing objects by the composer Alexander Grebtschenko. The electronically controllable “Chimera’s” – elegant bird wings with megaphone – unfold expressive “acting” presence. The dialogue between the sound level and the visual level opens up space for emotions, thoughts and interpretations.
+ Performance Murmure de ce qui passe et reste entre deux soleils by Rosa Canina
FR / Mire / 2023 / 25′
Cinéma solo pour projecteur 16mm, micros piezzo et K7 quatre pistes
Grain de son qui s’incruste dans l’oeil, flash sonore de lumière et chants renversés, jusqu’à ce que la machinerie s’emballe.
