sadescription "Fractured"
3mn04   color   stereo   2013   Australia
by David Anthony Sant
self-production
self-distribution
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.

These videos ("Menu", "The fat lamb" and "3") are part of a larger project, named “Buni”, which is a journal of the last words. I started it in the middle of 2009. It’s decomposition, mental agony and self loss. This is not a documentation of death, but a mere projection of what really matters. The photos are trying to underline the immortality of the human experience with everything that surrounds him, their interior value, that is never forgotten or lost, becoming the legacy of those who are near to us, those who we love. “Buni” is not a two year study of degradation, but everyone’s story, even if it appears in rather different shapes, written or rewritten with more or less talent. Buni raised me. Although we are not related, she was more than a mother to me. I started photographing her when I saw that he is poor in health. I felt I must do it. I couldn’t stay inert. In the summer of 2010 I felt that the photographic medium is poor, considering what I felt I would like to transmit to others. That is why I chose to continue what I felt I must do through video. It is obvious that a feeling cannot be transmitted in the sharpest, truly human and real form through the use of photography, film, or text. Nothing that is inside of us can be made VHS or DVD. “Buni” can only offer photocopied images of a story distorted by our own memories, becoming a reflection of ourselves in deformed mirror. It is a continuous project, putting together more than 180 hours of filmed material and more than 1600 photographs. This work is part of this larger project, alongside other videos made out of the filmed material that I have gathered.

sadescription and I loved only you...

by Daniel Nicolae Djamo
production : independent producer
self-distribution
The video is an anachronic story, a song that I heard on a train, in Paris, in August 2011, sung by a Romanian begger, on route to Bercy train station. The images were taken on my way from Sibiu to Ploiesti, from noon to afternoon, trying to return him to the one he loved. The story speaks of adaptation and, possibly, regret of an inability to readapt (maybe to a physical space, like its homeland). It could be seen as an impossible return to something that one loves, but simply can not absorb once more.

How empty spaces are filled, with what objects, memories and emotions that get left behind.

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)

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

sadescription Deltitnu
19mn15   color   stereo   2013   Italy
by Alessandro Sau & Maria Rosaria Soldi
self-production
self-distribution
Based on 'The 120 Days of Sodom' by the Marquis de Sade, 'Deltitnu' is the main title for a work formed by two episodes. 'The four fuckers' is the first chapter of a story that deals with the problem of image in relation to language. Aesthetic categories of taste are questioned as linguistic rules of perversion and domain on image. The language which does not subjugate itself to image, and on the contrary it makes image slave to it, ends up revolving within itself to the ultimate meaninglessness of shit. The second chapter , 'Veris leta facies', emphasizes the intrinsic relationship of vice with taste, which is behind the gradual decline of image's power in favor to every other value legitimized by art history and men of good taste. This video shows how such overpowering link between language and image, not only subverts the anthropological values of image itself, but it also throws back in crisis the artist and his traditional role of creator.

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

The Budapest bathing culture is a rich cultural heritage. But while inside, there's mainly tourists swimming, dissonant sounds from outside seem to disturb the flow of images ... On observing people's bathing in different baths of the hungarian capital, a speech from the off is heard: Balázs Nagy Navarro talks on occasion of a hunger strike agains media manipulation in public media in december 2011. The rhapsody as a poetic composition refers to the "good old times" that seem to be preserved in the baths of Budapest. Many residents can't afford regular visits of the Széchenyi or Gellért bath while Lukács is mainly frequented for curatorial reasons. The recordings were made in 2009 and 2010 at different seasons. The idyllic image of the baths doesn't seem to be more distorted by the modernization to wellness temples but by the changed political situation in the country. Not only since the controverse media laws of Orbán's government there's international worries about the future of democratic freedom in the country. Navarro and others protested against a singular case of manipulated reporting as well as the media policy of the rightwing Fidesz-government in general. As a consequence of this protest Navarro, who was previously employed by the channel that he protested against, has been suspended from his work. In his speech as well as in the sentimental goodbye-song at the end of the video the word "ELÉG" is central: it is ENOUGH.

Despite not having much belief in my ability to explain my movies and indeed the want to not waste my time as I am an image maker and not a writer (as is clearly evident) I recognize it is at minimum ironic there are certain films of mine in making them words flow out of me in what I would describe as automatistical, to use an early mondernity concept (which is not so surprising given at a point in my history I was highly involved with Abstract Expressionism, a movement I completely reject now as flat out wrong). The idea of my film Embraced is connected to the embraced manner art embraces artists and the way in which an artist embraces art not so dissimilar to lovers. Beyond this I suppose worth noting is that Embraced also is another of my films that seeks to record and express the atmosphere possessed by certain places that are "charged" from previous noteworthy art having been created in that specific place, and EMBRACED is a product of this intrigue. Embraced is filmed in Arles, France during autumn 2011. During this period I was involved in making a new film in the region and thus was out looking for appropriate geographical places to shot and was in fact solely using my artistic senses as a compass to decide as where next to wander and film. This lead me to a field not previously known to me where I spent the entire morning and entire afternoon filming trying to capture "this place"-- only to quite joyously discover at the end of my day that I had been filming in a field that Vincent Van Gogh had painted in during 1888. I found it very satisfying (to say the least) to know that two artists at different points in time artistically migrated to the same geographical place intrigued to capture that which is inherently there and "that there" only to become ever more charged subsequent to profound art being created there adding to the mystic of the geographical milieu of a place.

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.

Image says or sings and sound shows or writes. Don't forget that the reconciliation, the coïncidence of sound and image during a thunderstorm is a lightening strike, in other words a possible death. So don't hope for any..

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.

self-distribution
"Hasta Nunca" follows MARIO LIGETTI, a middle aged hipster DJ who produces an underground radio show in Montevideo, Uruguay. On his show Secrets and Stories he invites listeners to share their intimate thoughts with him and a live radio audience. Mario re-negotiates his public and private personas during the course of the film and enters into an extra marital affair with JULIA, a divorcee searching for a new artistic spark. In this international production (USA, Uruguay) each call in to the show was written and performed by local actors. Topics addressed in telephone conversations:  lingering effects of the military dictatorship in Uruguay, the difficulty of obtaining an -illegal- abortion and varied identity issues. Ligetti’s show is a modern rollicking Miss Lonelyhearts, with its host increasingly suffocated by the personal predicaments of his listeners. Shot in cinéma vérité style, Hasta Nunca reveals Montevideo as a strong background character in the film’s visual landscape. Callers' voices on the radio provide an acoustic counterpoint for an observational investigation of this ramshackle port city which retains the architectural vestiges of its colonial past.

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.

"Menu" is part of a larger project, named “Buni”, which is a journal of the last words. I started it in the middle of 2009. It’s decomposition, mental agony and self loss. This is not a documentation of death, but a mere projection of what really matters. The photos are trying to underline the immortality of the human experience with everything that surrounds him, their interior value, that is never forgotten or lost, becoming the legacy of those who are near to us, those who we love. “Buni” is not a two year study of degradation, but everyone’s story, even if it appears in rather different shapes, written or rewritten with more or less talent. Buni raised me. Although we are not related, she was more than a mother to me. I started photographing her when I saw that he is poor in health. I felt I must do it. I couldn’t stay inert. In the summer of 2010 I felt that the photographic medium is poor, considering what I felt I would like to transmit to others. That is why I chose to continue what I felt I must do through video. It is obvious that a feeling cannot be transmitted in the sharpest, truly human and real form through the use of photography, film, or text. Nothing that is inside of us can be made VHS or DVD. “Buni” can only offer photocopied images of a story distorted by our own memories, becoming a reflection of ourselves in deformed mirror. It is a continuous project, putting together more than 180 hours of filmed material and more than 1600 photographs. This work is part of this larger project, alongside other videos made out of the filmed material that I have gathered.

'natyr' is the third video in which Norwegian artist Ottar Ormstad combines concrete poetry, images, and music/sound.

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.

It is above all an experience for the whole team because the creation process was conducted without a script. The work was created on the basis of improvisations, the only materials were the body and emotions. We started with the idea to express specific feelings in image combining the real and the imaginary. This experimental short film is the result of a challenge in adverse conditions with little equipment. Divided into two parts, before and after the act of suicide, filmed in real time, it emphasizes the feeling of solitude and reflection. You can imagine since the choice was made not to use words, only the image and the body must speak to the bodies and minds of viewers. And the second part shows the fantastic side and dreamed the interpretation of metaphorical images of emotions and the imagination, what happens during and immediately after death, because it is a suicide.

A conversation between a boy and an E.T. They speak of their alienation in their own worlds and the technologic differences between those two. One (E.T.) speaks of his experiences he is doing with energy, paths and canals where it circulates and unites objects/bodies. The other (Boy) speaks of its capabilities to do telepathy, among others, which others cannot see and of his strong desire to leave his world. On the image, we see a Strong Sea Storm (for the boy) and mysterious canals of energy (for the E.T.)

Filming people without a camera.

A real "shopping of life" among all the shelves of supermarkets and corner stores of the everyday life staging. Film sequences, known or not, they are gone somewhere else to play a score that wasn't their. As in music, the tone of a film is expressed by the force of its own leitmotiv, by the almost hypnotic repetition of the simple measure of his purpose.

The figure of the sleeper played by Salman Rushdie should change the way it should be seen.

"The fat lamb" are part of a larger project, named “Buni”, which is a journal of the last words. I started it in the middle of 2009. It’s decomposition, mental agony and self loss. This is not a documentation of death, but a mere projection of what really matters. The photos are trying to underline the immortality of the human experience with everything that surrounds him, their interior value, that is never forgotten or lost, becoming the legacy of those who are near to us, those who we love. “Buni” is not a two year study of degradation, but everyone’s story, even if it appears in rather different shapes, written or rewritten with more or less talent. Buni raised me. Although we are not related, she was more than a mother to me. I started photographing her when I saw that he is poor in health. I felt I must do it. I couldn’t stay inert. In the summer of 2010 I felt that the photographic medium is poor, considering what I felt I would like to transmit to others. That is why I chose to continue what I felt I must do through video. It is obvious that a feeling cannot be transmitted in the sharpest, truly human and real form through the use of photography, film, or text. Nothing that is inside of us can be made VHS or DVD. “Buni” can only offer photocopied images of a story distorted by our own memories, becoming a reflection of ourselves in deformed mirror. It is a continuous project, putting together more than 180 hours of filmed material and more than 1600 photographs. This work is part of this larger project, alongside other videos made out of the filmed material that I have gathered.

"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).

This film has a monolithic and uniform atmosphere. Its global feeling is anxiety, a fear of a dangerous event about to happen. In the soundtrack, we can hear a musical composition that is evolving very slowly and is made out of a unique sound material : human voices holding a note which sustain seems to be infinite. The image you can see is a simple geometric figure, almost monochromatic, which transforms itself into a more complex figure in a slow and impercetible way. The musical composition is partly based on the works of La Monte Young : a music freed from the occidental notion of rythm and from the regular pulse that indicates the passing of time. Here, the sound piece seems to have neither beginning nor end, and does not propose any outcome or resolution: it is the feeling that prevails. The geometrical figures (oblique, cross) evolve slowly. A simple bar becomes a cross. Other bars appear through transparency . In the initial monochromy, bits of colours burst out inside the figures. The minimal outlook of both sound and image are part of a global aestethics : infinitesimal variations can cause sensations of great intensity.

Yet I had erased the traces of that other story. »
