with theme COLLECTIVism formulated by the artist duo Doplgenger (Boško Prostran and Isidora Ilic), film/video artists from Belgrade (ex-Yugoslavia). The work of Doplgenger deals with relation between art and politics through exploring the regimes of moving images and modes of its reception. They deconstruct the film medium, language, structure and notions of text in order to discover the ways in which art/moving images participate in creating political reality.

ALL WE NEED
Present and chaos, history and current events, the program " All We Need " develops a social, economic and political criticism. By various experiments, from the found footage to the documentary, appear alternately the beauty and monstrousness. How to denounce, to resist, to invent in response to consumerism and the outrageous profits, the capital gain and the injustice, an organized contempt of the life in the name of the profit, of the identity or any omnipotence?
The story begins with the myth, the Mediterranean, the shore and the sea, reflections of the moon on a silver dress, trace on the ground and body's loss in the night. In struggle, women and men undergo moral and physical tortures to open the earth to a better world, loneliness of being and despair, resistance, revolt, revolt, resistance. In a luxurious hotel of Barcelona, place of life and work of anarchists, the Collectivist Anarchism occurs. Far away, everything is fine, profit's prose, capitalist's festival, how so smooth are women and they give in to paradise, ecstatic. What a whiteness of ideas, what purity, the reality cleansed by the advertising rhetoric and the mortification of time. One minute for the hero, another and the fable collapses. The most grandiose stories, however magnificent they are, always end. But there are laughter and #.

sadescription Los (De)pendientes
24mn   b/w   stereo   2016   Argentina
by Sebastian Wiedemann
"Sampling Argentinian critical and revolutionary films from 1956 to 2006, Los (De)pendientes offers a great step in the conception of film history. Without any words, considering the past, it tells what visual works were faithful to the real issues of their times; considering the present, it shows in which poor condition are these crucial images of life and struggle; considering the becoming, it indicates what remains to be done to reconstruct a fairest and truest history of cinema; considering eternity, it is an auratic poem of bold shadows."

sadescription Surplus
5mn40   color   stereo   2008   Serbia
by Doplgenger
Formally intervening with found footage of commercials, this experimental video allows one to rethink image while creating narrative which discovers one of many skillfully covered senses of media images. As the title suggests this video performs Lacan's opinion that in contemporary capitalism 'surplus value' is no longer capitalized for later libidinal enjoyment - nowadays surplus value is re-invested in production process.

sadescription An Infinite Loop for Resistance
5mn55   color & b/w   stereo   2017   USA
by M. Woods
2018 Official Rotterdam International Film Festival Selection An avant-garde is a front line. This is a work for the regeneration of the avant-garde. This is a media-fashioned attack aimed at the disturbing omnipotence of hyperrealism and fascist banality - best symbolized by Donald Trump's burning latex effigy. This is a violent collage - shreds of simulacral tumult, a riot in media waste. Meant to be projected anywhere - as a call to arms, a way to incite, an attempt at shaking the normalization of bigotry and authoritarianism. This is a call to #Revolt more than #Resist. This is not for photo ops. Rather than bathe in the aesthetics of nothingness, it is time to wake up and fight the active evil that radiates from the seat of "power" and alters the real through mediated nihilism.
