A line from a Tim Buckley song spawns an extremely literal film. Figures in a haunted landscape, mediated by nature and the individual frame, accompanied by field recordings from a broken tape recorder.
CAMERA MEMORIA; Franziska Voge; Germany; Funded through the Gleichstellungsbüro der FH Bielefeld (Federal Office for the Equality of Women and Men at the University of Applied Science Bielefeld); TRT: 13:41
Do I really exist if no one rembers with me? CAMERA MEMORIA reflects on the collectiveness of memory in context with the cinematic room. The Illusion of room and the illusion of cinema. Our memory room has a screen and we can reflect upon the reality of what we see and wonder if the experience is ours or not, and more importantly, is it necceassary to know, that it is ours? The room is scanned through light and sound. These mediums create the barriers of room, just as they dissolve them and we are left with the room we currently stay in.
18 (+2) BLINKS OF AN EYE; Anuradha Chandra; INDIA; TRT: 22.00
The film inspired by the book Einstein’s Dreams is a meditation on time. In dwelling on the nature of time, the film taps into an understanding based on personal experience of space and events.
WAS BEING MOVED?; Ye Mimi; Taiwan; TRT: 11.00
This film is about the state of moving and being moved. When people build a boat to carry themselves; when people start to walk backwards; when gods lead people to step on the Earth… is it possible that everyone becomes someone else’s “far-afar” in the continuous movement?
ROSE; Coleen Fitzgibbon; TRT: 5.00; Shot on iPhone 4
A rose is a rose is a rose in saturated color.
