sadescription "Fractured"
3mn04   color   stereo   2013   Australia
by David Anthony Sant
Decisions about what to film within the confines of the specific parameters of the camera frame were determined as much by the decision to avoid filming what lay outside the periphery of that frame. This film explores and reworks perceptions of urban peculiarities found in an Inner Western Sydney landscape through ever shifting camera movements and unconventional editing techniques. Human artifacts in this landscape include such peculiarities as the desolate rooftops of multistorey car parks, street signage, telegraph poles, power lines, empty construction sites and shop front awnings. The re-working is a fractured spatio-temporal continuity that pursues, in the visual and auditory realm, a new mode of expression that seeks to expand cinematic thought.

WISH
Sometimes life leads us to a break, to the end of a way or to an unavoidable crash against a wall. The only way out will be jumping, climbing, running, moving forward…..where to? It doesn’t necessarily matter. The starting point of this piece is presented like this, where through the image and sound we sail through a mood and a desire, the one of change.

sadescription broken time
1mn   color & b/w   dolby stereo   2011   Austria
by Johannes Gierlinger
Like Jeanne d'Arc in front of the scaffold, clueless. Finally, a fight, they come to get her, the redeeming handshake. Out of the hands, on the hands, that’s how you can read broken time: because something is eliminated, combed, scratched and lovely caressed. Perhaps the velvet glove is the connecting through time. For an alliance it´s taken off. Something is sealed: memory and dream play off against each other, the best fighter will be adopted. And ultimately it burns to ashes, the famous story, it was all a dream. Maybe she was the boy that she kissed, at least she resembles him. The image section and traces on the material are covering the secret. Serious men come up to exterminate her. "Deform Your Dreams" as the only liberation. (Text: Jan Zischka)

sadescription Castaway
14mn   color   stereo   2012   Canada
by Isabelle Hayeur
Castaway was filmed in the murky waters of Witte’s Marine Salvage at Staten Island (New York). The largest boat cemetery on the Eastern Seaboard, this uncanny, desolate place is the final resting place of numerous wrecks of all varieties and several eras: ferries, barges, fishing boats, old steam tugs. Located near New Jersey’s Chemical Coast and the former Fresh Kills landfill, these now toxic shores have seen their share of ecological disasters.

Isolated in an inert world throbbing, so white, hallucinated, evaporated, she roams, sleepwalking wandering in a strange land where she has disappeared ... ...world of muffled noises, discolored, disarticulated, gasping, panting. She floats to her inviolable island, untouchable. And she sees herself splitted, choked. And she sees herself without bonds nor any support, except, except... oh sweet pills!

sadescription Crop Duster Octet

by Gregg Biermann
In Crop Duster Octet, the iconic “crop duster”sequence from Hitchcock’s North by Northwest in which Cary Grant is repeatedly attacked by a small airplane swooping from the sky is deconstructed into eight horizontal bands, each of which is slightly out of synch with the next. As the scene (and, in particular, Grant’s body) is continuously deconstructed,the patterns of action are refigured and intensified, culminating in a crescendo of convergence. -- Jaimie Baron, LA Filmforum

3mn25   color   stereo   2012   United Kingdom
by Guli Silberstein
A poetic video work: a young woman is blocking two armed soldiers from firing at protesters in a Palestinian village. The image is digitally processed and slowed down. The soundtrack is replaced with lyrical music. The scene is turned to a peculiar romantic dance, highlighting the magical and rare human connection formed for a brief moment, captured and transmitted by digital technology. The work deconstructs oppressors-protesters conflict, crystallising it to one on one poetic encounter, and at the same time offers an alternative in the young woman's action.

Salsa is a syncretic dance form with origins from the Cuban Son (circa 1920s) and Afro-Cuban dance. This style of dance has made an entry in a big way to New Zealand in recent years. It is a raucous, sexually overt style of dancing; whose videoed silhouetted dancers and feet bathed in the gentle cerebral soundtrack of the group Deaf Center (with their permission) creates an otherworldly nostalgic presence. http://vimeo.com/55584080

"That particular moment". After a long walk around the lake, you feel good. You stop to observe the nature, absorbed ... The reflections of the trees in standing water relaxes you. Still hear the sonority of the urban life in the distance, more or less away. But are abstracted. Your focus is 99% at that particular moment. The wind, the birdsong ... Sounds. It seems that no problem of daily life is important. It is like daydreaming. But there's always something, that 1% that makes you return to reality and move forward ...Noises. It is the rhythm of the life, a flow of sound and visual movement, more or less controlled and orderly. It is sometimes long and sometimes short, you will relax or tense.Sometimes altered abruptly and surprises you. Interrelated whole, nature and civilization. The life filled with these particular moments, at your own pace.

Nervous spidery spirits looking for a body (language) - theirs probably – moving along in a space-time lapse without any shape, without any edge, borderline, in liquefaction. Filling up that space-time, to not suffer too much the temptation to sink into. Fill up the space by the void or by the human corpses fighting to float in that white magma formerly known as unconscious.

by Doplgenger
The famous speech of Slobodan Milosevic, which took place at Kosovo on June 28th 1989, was performed in front of the thousands of people. The National television was streaming it. This event, as known as “happening of the people”, is embodied in the image and the speech of Milosevic. History regards it as a presage of the collapse of Yugoslavia and the bloodshed of the Yugoslav Wars. Doplgenger vivisects media footage and TV stream of the 1989 event in order to denote the invisible and deconstruct the memory.

A surreal escape of a disintegrating mind into neon-lit nightmares from a discarded future. Suddenly interferences from sub-particle proliferation occur within the protagonist's body, a transformation can't be avoided. This exploration of cinematic space within an implosion of cerebral space is a daring tale of aliens, experiments on humans, video games and mutation. It is showering the unsuspecting viewer in handmade visual and aural stimuli from planet Fleisch.

sadescription Inability of Being Nude
2mn45   color   stereo   2013   Germany
by Wilfried Agricola de Cologne
The moving picture takes the classical theme of the “nude” in a contemporary interpretation as a psychological condition. The viewer is confronted with different levels of movements of baring/exposing, but is disturbing intimacy, the process of emptiness. Emptiness in the sense of meditating. The nude is a metaphor. The Inability of Being Nude becomes the inability of exposing one’s entire internal to other people, including those who are most intimate and this could be the viewer himself. This inability is in the same way protecting as separating.

Robin Dupuis approaches the construction of narrative structures through images and sounds that he generates and filters on home-grown computer systems. He works on digital supports, transforms the language of moving images, and plays with the soundscape to propose a contemplative experience. The abstract images and unheard-of sounds that he creates prompt spectators to “perceive” more intuitively, in what Henri Chomette once described as cinéma pur. Lixiviat | Robin Dupuis | HD | 09:49 | 2012 Lixiviat is available in single channel and in installation Lixiviat has been presented at; Espace BV, Mois Multi 11, Québec | Février 2011 https://vimeo.com/47239289 Supported by the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, the Rustines|Lab of Perte de Signal and La Bande Vidéo.

The project presents itself as a Western film without protagonists. Its inherent quest is interaction with the viewer, who stands in the midst of the videographic and sonic spaces of the piece. The disconcerting mood of the soundtrack places the viewer in an ambiguous space, creating a tension within the video component and expressing vastness and emptiness. MUU has been presented at : Festival Sight and Sound / Son et Vue, Montréal, May 2011 Action Art Actuel, Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, June 2011 Video excerpt : http://vimeo.com/23127718 Informations : http://www.perte-de-signal.org/ Muu can be presented as a performance, an installation or a video.

4mn45   color   stereo   2013   Norway
by Ottar Ormstad
'natyr' is the third video in which Norwegian artist Ottar Ormstad combines concrete poetry, images, and music/sound. This time the video is based on a work by the Norwegian painter Knut Rumohr (1916-2002) who mostly created abstract tempera paintings inspired by the nature of a fjord at the Norwegian west coast. Ormstad once again continues mixing words from different languages. A concept he presented with "Non-Translation as Poetic Experience" at the Translating E-Lit conference in Paris 2012. The word 'natyr' may not exist in any language, but may be experienced with different associations to nature. The video (HD 16:9) is made for plain screening (4:45min). Exept for the animation made by Ina Pillat, everything is directed and created by Ormstad, photography and music included.

Since 2005, mounir fatmi has developed a project called « Sleep”, as a reference coming straight from Andy Warhol’s pop and minimalist experimental movie where the relentless image of the poet John Giorno, asleep, was shown for six hours. 32 years later, mounir fatmi is trying to reactivate this apparatus. The figure of the sleeper played by Salman Rushdie should change the way it should be seen. Instead of the “obsolete” sleep of John Giorno ahead of Warhol’s lens, the literary and polemic context would make the sleeping of the British writer necessary and paradoxical.

9mn08   color   stereo   2012   Australia
by Scott Morrison
small choir (2012) was originally presented as a continuous loop installation with Beam Contemporary, Melbourne Australia. It is a rhythmic mediation of space, time and perception. It is a collage of sensory experience where what we are seeing and hearing draws us deeper into a forest forever in flux.

sadescription Storia
6mn45   color   stereo   2013   France
by Gérard Cairaschi
Carried by a song, images and fragments of narration intertwine. Simulacrum, magical or religious ritual, ritual of death or rite of passage, nothing is explicit in the action that deploys amongst the characters, between the extreme proximity and, at the same time, the absolute distance expressed by the gestures and bodies.

sadescription The Peril That Lurks By The Sea
11mn22   color   stereo   2012   United Kingdom
by Patrick Rowan
This is an experimental film, shot frame by frame on a 35mm stills camera. The film plays with the distortion of time and reality, in it's narrative content, as well as the way it is structured together with a horizontal split screen. Throughout the film, the repetitive rhythm that is built up is often disrupted by out-of-sequence frames, that reach back and forward along the time-line, foreseeing what is to come as well as what has been and gone.

by Esther Pérez de Eulate
Summer comes and the rose garden becomes an explosion of beauty and color, a nice scenario that leaves thousands of digital copies. Is it possible to have certain experiences without trace? Is photography a hobby or a necessity?

sadescription The Tears of Man Ray
5mn31   color & b/w   stereo   2012   USA
by Brice Bowman
"The Tears of Man Ray" evolves around the notion that life events that are at first pleasant memories can turn out later to become sour memories; and become regret in the deepest sense, haunting us forever, moreover, indulgences that lead to disasters, the manner in which a creative person sacrifices all of oneself for art at all costs as if they were hypnotized to out of control addictions. Other notions in "The Tears of Man Ray" are: foreignness, irony, failing while trying to recover, nostalgia based in fiction, death after life (yes I said "death after life"), and additionally life lived as a partition from reality, inaccessibility, exoticness, inability to retain something once obtained, always being on a journey, the ocean as time, and repetitive music seemingly sweet but ever so full of pain in reality with its inherent repeating error (which I put the error in the soundtrack music intentionally).

by Bernd Lützeler
If God would come down to earth and try to earn a living in Bombay, most probably he would very soon become successful as a voice over artiste, lending his voice to thousands of hindi movies and even more documentaries and public service films in India. A melo-dramatic docu-drama with voice-over in stop-motion and long-time exposure.

I buried a 35 mm trailer for the Mike Leigh film in my garden and came upon it several years later. The vagaries of nature (snow, rain, ice, sun) yielded a scrupulous document of the passing of time. Soundtrack made up of ambient musique concrete and snippets of music sung by women.

sadescription [ Semaphore ]
2mn54   color   stereo   2012   France
by Gilivanka Kedzior & Barbara Friedman
« Sometimes, when everywhere around darkness smothers the last breaths by its density, images come to us. Fleeting visions that play with our reason, as many isolated beacons ; enigmatic signals revealing another space-time, lost, forgotten, hidden. Troubled by the masquerade of screen memories, voices are raised ; familial and familiar exchanges take place again, for a moment, underlining the obviousness of the unspoken. Yet I had erased the traces of that other story. »
