DUST - The wanted life

Saturday, June 4 | 5:00pm

Gabriele Falsetta | 21 min., video, 2014, Germany/Italy

 

"DUST is the adventure of eight physically and mentally disabled persons who have been living in the Cottolengo Institute of Turin for over fifty years. This is neither a script nor an attempt to tell their discomfort. Through a creative artistic path revolving around theatre, these characters in search of an author stage themselves and the life that they would like to lead." - GB

Still At Large

Saturday, June 4 | 5:00pm

Paul Rooney | 11 min., video, 2015, UK

 

"The work seems to be an essay film about Holy Island, northern England, written and presented by Nicholas Still. But there is another, sinister, voice on the soundtrack, perhaps the voice of 'narrative' itself, submerging everything in it's sadistic tide." - PR

Traveling with Maxim Gorkiy

Saturday, June 4 | 5:00pm

Bernd Lützeler & Kolja Kunt | 11 min., video, 2014, Germany

 

"As so often, also here it's rather about allusion than description. This also applies to the persons represented. Flat silhouettes of people. Their heads depicted in profile. Faces with no expression, formal gestures. In the background, a little bit of everyday life: The hard, square, stone architecture arises from ocher-colored, brownish, blackish mush of color or mud. A demonstration of the function of the central perspective. An idealized representation of a tropical paradise. Strangely, there's no absurdity in this." - BL,LK

Eugene Sun Park & Sara Zalek | 3 min., video, 2016, USA

 

"One of the major developments in 20th-century contemporary dance, Butoh combines dance, theater, improvisation and influences of Japanese traditional performing arts to create a unique art form that is both controversial and universal in its expression. As art critic Mark Holborn of the New York Times describes it, "Butoh is defined by its very evasion of definition." - EP

Open Hearing

Saturday, June 4 | 5:00pm

Brian Ashby, John Corbett, & Terri Kapsalis | 10 min., video, 2015, USA

 

"A dog is rescued from the railroad tracks. Citizens have their say while councilmen watch. Which is more precarious? Will somebody please do something? A collaborative meditation on the tensions between image, sound, and word that journeys beyond the human in the circus of politics." - BA
