Bitter with a Shy Taste of Sweetness
Film expérimental | hdv | couleur et n&b | 8:47 | Iraq | USA | 2019

Bitter with a Shy Taste of Sweetness contrasts the fragmented past of the filmmaker growing up in Baghdad with his surreal California present. Through poetic writing and jarring visuals, the film creates a calm and cruel sense of memory and landscape.

Saif Alsaegh is a United States-based filmmaker from Baghdad. Much of Saif’s work deals with the contrast between the landscape of his youth in Baghdad growing up as part of the Chaldean minority in the nineties and early 2000s, and the U.S. landscape where he currently lives. His films have screened in many festivals including Cinema du Reel, Kruzfilm Festival Hamburg, Kasseler Dokfest, Onion City Film Festival and in galleries and museums including the Wisconsin Triennial at MMoCA. He received his MFA in filmmaking from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

we began by measuring distance
Vidéo expérimentale | dv | couleur | 19:0 | Palestine | Egypte | 2009

Long still frames, text, language, and sound are weaved together to unfold the narrative of an anonymous group who fill their time by measuring distance. Innocent measurements transition into political ones, drawing to an examination of how image and sound communicate history, tragedy, and the complication of Palestinian nationalism. The work explores an ultimate disenchantment with facts when the visual fails to communicate the tragic.

Born 27 august 1983 in Kuwait. Spent early childhood in Brittany France. Educated in the US, earning BFA & MFA from the University of Illinois at Chicago School of Art & Design and was a guest student at the Malmö Art Academy, Lund University Sweden in 2004. Taught as an adjunct instructor at The University of Illinois at Chicago, The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and the American University in Cairo. Currently based in Beirut Lebanon as a recipient of the Fundación Marcelino Botín Visual Arts Grant 2009-2010 developing a series of new projects in photography, film, and text.

Thistles blossom in the dead of winter, cow’s eardrums burst, poisoned milk comes out of their udders – in a remote mountain village the world is coming apart. Nature’s intangible attacks hit the Haberer’s farm at its core. In the midst of the inflammatory struggle for the interpretation of the mysterious events, the peasant family fears more and more desperately for their naked survival.

Fabian Altenried, *1987, director, producer, author, studied fine arts in Düsseldorf, philosophy in Berlin. Managing director of Schuldenberg Films. Fabian focusses on films with a political, critical & social approach that seek an unusual, artistic form.

Omo Valley, Ethiopia: a region where tribes villages are reduced to human zoos to entertain the honeymooners tourism industry. International corporation have land-grabbed most of the indigenous territory for massive cotton field plantations. The Omo river is been recently closed by the biggest dam of Africa, leaving two hundred thousand tribe people facing food shortages and forced resettlement. With no land where to hunt, no river where to fish , tribes lives depends on the show they are able to perform daily in front of tourists. The fate of the region is written. The one of the tribes depends on their performative skills We went there and after meeting with one tribe we asked them to imagine their future in a cinematic epic way. This was basically the script. We weren’t that surprised when they came up with a futuristic techno pop idea of themselves. We formed a tribal girl band and began filming. We recorded with the tribe the music under the shadow of one of the few trees left standing by the plantation workers. We built a bar together and threw a party, remixing our own notion of partying with their celebratory rituals. It’s been a participative creative process that generated an unique original experience.

Treviso Centrale
Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur | 13:8 | Italie | 2014

The project Treviso Centrale stems from a desire to represent and interpret the territory of Treviso in the north-east of Italy. A territory that deals with the consequences of a heavy exploitation of the land for the sake of industrialization and economic wealth but also that deals with the relationship between the human presence and the man-altered landscape. In Treviso Centrale the subjects try to engage with this wounded landscape, non-places, with the attempt to re-appropriate them. This engagement becomes forced, unnatural, because of the impossibility to relate with places that have lost their social and inner function. Treviso Centrale becomes then a journey into these contrasts, into this everyday struggle between economic and social space.

Michele Amaglio (b.1993) is an Italian photographer based in Brighton (UK) currently studying at the University of Brighton, BA (Hons) Photography at his third year. From the early workshops with the Italian photographer Marco Zanta, Michele Amaglio grew an interest on architectural photography and urban landscape starting questioning the contrasts between past and presence within the landscape. His work is focused on the relationship between human being and space, between landscape and existentialism. Across different projects his attempt to represent the social space questions the alienation from the every-day life. Among the main influences of his work, Henri Lefebvre, Albert Camus and Jean Beaudrillard.

I see everything,” she says, as if it was a curse. Brilliant sunshine, clear blue skies. The sea is calm, framed by a piece of railing. Buzzing voices. A peaceful moment if it weren’t for the fact that the sea is standing upright, vertical, like a waterfall. A rush of images, twirling, upside down, jolting. People in the boat, in the water, screams, life jackets, emergency whistles. Fluorescent orange, geometrical shapes cast by the sun. There’s no horizon anymore, no sky, no up or down, only deepness and nothing to hold on to. Even Eme’s flow comes to a halt, contracting into the brutal present. She is filming and speaking. To him, to herself, to us, perhaps. Floating legs in sweat pants, jeans, thronged together. A blouse with butterflies, it looks like their wings are flapping in the water. The snake-like belt of a coat, a crumpled-up plastic cup, a pack of cigarettes. Fuck you all! She speaks, she rages, and she films to beat being tired, being cold, the fact that help isn’t coming. To beat dying, just for something to remain.

Amel Alzakout, born 1988 in Syria, is an artist and film maker based in Leipzig. Between 2010 and 2013 she studied journalism at Cairo University, Egypt.

Welcome Home
Installation vidéo | dv | couleur | 12:0 | Allemagne | Belgique | 2006

Imaginez une seconde: vous faites des courses dans un magasin IKEA et tout à coup on vous propose de participer à un film. C'est ce qui est arrivé à plus d'une centaine de clients dans le magasin IKEA de Wilrijk en Belgique, où Ulf était en tournage pendant deux semaines pour réaliser Welcome Home. Dans des décors tout faits - la chambre d'étudiant, le salon rustique, l'intérieur design - les clients avaient la possibilité d'improviser comme ils le voulaient à partir de situations données. Ces acteurs en devenir ont tous fait preuve d'une grande volonté. On y voit des personnes qui dorment, qui cuisinent, qui sont assis... Welcome Home est une compilation de scènes humoristiques basées sur la confrontation entre ce qui est artificiel et authentique, et entre l'Homme et le commerce. IKEA sert de décor clairement reconnaissable pour ces scènes et fait apparaître toutes sortes d'associations et de réflexions. Cependant on ne trouve aucune prise de position explicite sur la consommation et la mondialisation de la part d'Ulf. Pour lui, ce qui est important c'est de laisser les gens jouer et de nous permettre les observer.

Ulf Aminde (né en 1969 en Allemagne) vit à Berlin et travaille comme artiste vidéo. Son travail a été présenté au Centre Culturel de Suisse (Paris), à Friedericianum (Kassel) et à Kagami (Paris), pour n'en citer que quelques uns. En 2004, une exposition intitulée Survival of the fittest lui a été consacrée à Wolfsburg, et en 2006, ses oeuvres ont été présentées à la Biennale de Berlin. Ulf s'intéresse principalement aux mécanismes socio-émotionnels de la société capitaliste. Il ne s'agit pas simplement d'images enregistrées. Au contraire il cherche à faire participer des gens victimes des stigmates sociaux, des personnes qui ne peuvent pas ou qui ne pourront jamais prendre part à l'Etat-providence. Ulf ne condamne personne et ne formule aucune plainte mais son travail montre ces personnes d'une telle manière que la perception que l'on a habituellement d'eux est brisée, ou du moins devient plus nuancée.

TRUST US 2017, Video Installation Very often journalists are contacting us to write a story about `refugees` in the context of higher education, their living in Berlin, or simply because they`re looking for some “traumatized” characters for their stories. We usually reject these requests. But this time we received an award of a multinational company and it came with a sum that we urgently needed in order to continue our programme. This time they wanted to produce a video, a one shot sequence. They seemed nice, but their task was to produce emotional images featuring the bodies of the refugee students, underscored by the voice of the white professor contextualising their movements and giving meaning to the frames. We told them this is not how it`s going to work. No one wanted to provide their ́bodies ́ to fill those frames of narration. They said: „TRUST US, it will look good“ Finally we agreed: THEY WOULD FILM US while WE WOULD FILM THEM. We decided to edit the material WE shot and combine it with texts spoken by us, relating to the week long discussions we`ve shared. The whole thing became an installation shown at 3. Herbstsalon, Maxim Gorki Theater.

The *foundationClass was established at weißensee academy of art berlin in 2016. Its aim is to provide equal access to formal art education for people who have fled or migrated to Germany. It tries to create a social space where everyone’s resources are acknowledged and validated and where new formats of skill sharing and knowledge transfer can be developed. Ultimately, the *foundationClass wants to question the norms, conventions, and the habitus of art institutions and the industry as a whole. Situated within the institution but rejecting to embody it, the *foundationClass scrutinizes the art academy as a powerful site of knowledge production. Refusing to be integrated into an economy of difference, we aim to formulate strategies that position us outside of the grid of representation. Together we want to find answers to the question of how an art school of the future would look like if it genuinely recognised migration as an essential societal factor. As a collective the *foundationClass contributed TRUST US as a multichannel video installation to the 3. Berliner Herbstsalon, a festival for contemporary art by the Maxim Gorki Theater.

Untitled (band in a studio)
Art vidéo | dv | couleur | 2:23 | Royaume-Uni | 2006

A rock band is filmed in a studio during the making of a music video. The set for the video consists of numerous video cameras with their lights on, arranged in a circle. The circle of lights forms a ring and within that ring the band is situated. In the second scene, a performer comes in and out of the frame as he plays his guitar frenetically. The last scene shows the band waiting, looking bewildered. At the centre of the work is the uncertainty we feel in regard to what we see, as the footage documents a real activity which at the same time remains inexplicable. The video is silent. Sound and music are a central and inseparable part of a rock band?s performance, and as such, the muted sound instigates an uncanny experience and conveys a new reading to the scenes. The camera/observer is placed in a neutral standpoint, dictating a sense of detachment and alienation. The relationship between documentary and fiction, stillness and movement, euphoria and melancholy, and sound and silence, are at the core of this work.

Installation vidéo | 4k | couleur et n&b | 46:48 | Brésil | Ouganda | 2017

Shot on location in Kampala, Uganda, the film combines narratives connected to the symbolism surrounding the sport of boxing. From the very personal and intimate relationship between the artist and a boxer in a sparring match, to a story about the black heavyweight as a gallant and politicised figure in the historical match-up between Sonny Liston and Floyd Patterson. The film also diverts into several off-topic sequences; showing a group of stunt bikers during an euphoric highway performance, tracing history through a tree planted on October 9th 1962, the day Uganda gained independence from Britain, and visiting the former Gaddafi National Mosque. The Mosque was renamed to `The Uganda National Mosque` in 2013 after pressure from the new Libyan administration, following the US led intervention in Libya in 2011, and the death of Colonel Gaddafi. The title of the work originates from Rainer Maria Rilke's Letters to a Young Poet (1929). Rilke addresses existential themes, profoundly probing the quest for individuality, the significance of death, and reflection on the experience of time as death approaches. His work invoke images of mankind`s anxiety and alienation in the face of an increasingly scientific, industrial, reified world.

Welcome to My World
Vidéo | dv | couleur | 9:25 | France | USA | 2013

La vidéo Welcome to My World représente Woolstock un petit village, extrêmement isolé au centre des .États-Unis, dans l?Iowa. Comme dans beaucoup d?autres lieux de ce type, il ne se passe rien. Les habitants sont enfermés dans un quotidien calme, épuré, et serein, mais peut être aussi ennuyeux et répétitif. Les scènes sont tournées dans des paysages contemplatifs. Elles représentent des atmosphères nocturnes et crépusculaires, éclairées par la lumière incertaine des lampadaires et nous plongent dans un univers étrange, où nous attendons quelque chose que nous ignorons et qui nous échappe.

Annabelle Amoros est née en 1987 à Creil. Après avoir suivit une formation à l`École Supérieure d`art de Metz, elle poursuit aujourd`hui ses études à l`École Nationale Supérieure de la Photographie d`Arles. Suite à quelques voyages l`ayant menée au centre des États-Unis, en Finlande, en Laponie, sans oublier la France, elle ne cesse d`observer et de s`imprégner de la vie quotidienne des gens installés dans des petits villages très isolés. Elle tente de transformer les habitants en personnages et de créer des univers sous tension à partir d`un quotidien où il ne se passe presque rien. Par l`outil photographique ou vidéographie, elle ne cesse d`interroger ses images autour de la dualité réalité-fiction.

Pensée, filmée et montée comme un rêve, La Maison des Lilas propose une vision onirique et surréaliste, où logique, structure narrative et raison s`effacent pour libérer la pensée spontanée et l`inconscient.

Annabelle Amoros est née en 1987 en France. Après avoir étudié à l’école d’Art de Metz, elle a suivi des cours à l’Ecole Nationale Supérieure de la Photographie à Arles, de 2011 à 2014. Durant cette période, elle a reçu une subvention de la région Alsace, ce qui lui a permit d’aller aux Etats-Unis afin de réaliser un projet photographique et vidéographique. Ensuite, elle a suivi un programme d’échange erasmus à l’école Taik de Helsinki, où elle a reçu ses premiers cours de vidéo avec Hannu Karjalainen, et a monté sa permière pièce, "Welcome to My World". Suite à cette première expérience, l’image en mouvement est devenu son activité principale. En s’inspirant du cinéma, de la vidéo et de la photographie, elle tente d’effacer la limite entre la réalité et la fiction, en utilisant les lumières artificielles de la nuit, afin de transformer la rue en théâtre et les habitants en personnages. Après plusieurs semaines de tournage, elle réorganise ses plans puis créé un nouvel environnement, inspiré des œuvres de David Lynch, Alec Soth ou encore David Clearbout.

The Thoughts That Once We Had
Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur et n&b | 108:0 | USA | 2015

Inspiré de la théorie du cinéma de Gilles Deleuze, «The Thoughts That Once We Had» se construit autour de l’amour et du pouvoir de séduction des films. Réduisant à zéro l’abstraction lyrique, ruminant sur les nazis, les communistes et les espions, comparant les danses de serpent orientalistes de Maria Montez et de Debra Paget, le film est un cadeau pour tous ceux qui voient dans le cinéma un art, une forme de pensée et une source de plaisir.

Figure incontournable du film expérimental américain, Thom Andersen commence à réaliser des films au milieu des années 1960 à Los Angeles, où il étudie le cinéma (University of Southern California). Au même moment, il développe une pratique d’écriture qui accompagnera toujours sa production. En tant que critique il sera un des premiers à s’intéresser à l’oeuvre filmique d’Andy Warhol. Si ses premiers films relèvent de la production «expérimentale» ou «d’avant-garde» (cf. «Melting», 1965 ou «Short Line/Long Line», 1966-67), à partir de la moitié des années 1970 il développe une forme hybride à la croisée de l’étude visuelle et du film documentaire. Avec «Eadweard Muybridge, Zoopraxographer» (1974) – issu d’un article qu’Andersen avait publié dans Film Culture en 1966 – le cinéaste s’intéresse à la figure de Muybridge et à ses expériences dans l’étude du mouvement. À la fois biographie de l’auteur et étude sur la nature même de l’image en mouvement, Eadweard Muybridge explore la possibilité pour le documentaire de s’ouvrir au champ de la critique et de travailler ainsi, par le biais du commentaire, une forme d’écriture particulière. Avec «Red Hollywood» (1996), co-réalisé avec Noël Burch, Thom Andersen dévéloppe également une série des textes sur les communistes à Hollywood, en faisant ainsi du film une sorte de traité historiographique critique. «Los Angeles Plays Itself» (2003), son opus majeur, porte à l’extrême ce principe. Constitué à partir d’un nombre étonnant de séquences des films, le long-métrage explore, sur une durée de trois heures, les multiples identités de la ville de Los Angeles, et ce que le cinéma peut nous apprendre sur l’espace urbain.La production filmique de Thom Andersen se présente comme un lieu d’investigation idéal pour comprendre les liens entre l’écriture et la mise en forme visuelle de la pensée.

"While remastering Los Angles Plays Itself, I re-edited a number of clips, including The Takeover (Troy Cook, 1995), a grungy, sordid straight-to-video film remarkable only because executive producer Michael Woods and star David Amos had in 1990 planned and carried out the murder of Horace McKenna, Woods's partner in the operation of a chain of strip clubs around Los Angeles - a crime echoed in the movie. After repeated viewings, I noticed a miniature tragedy (or black comedy) spread out over the first sixty minutes. Its protagonist is Waldo the bouncer, the victim of ruses and sucker punches, whose multiple failures lead him to one final heroic attempt to make amends. This is his story."

Thom Andersen has lived in Los Angeles for most of his life. In the 1960s, he made short films, including Melting (1965), Olivia’s Place (1966), and --- ------- (1967, with Malcolm Brodwick). In 1974 he completed Eadweard Muybridge, Zoopraxographer, an hour-long documentary film about Muybridge’s photographic work: It was restored by the UCLA Film and Television Archive in 2013. In 1995, with Noël Burch, he completed Red Hollywood, a critical video essay about the film works created by the victims of the Hollywood Blacklist. Their work on the history of the Blacklist also produced a book, Les Communistes de Hollywood: Autre chose que des martyrs, published in 1994. In 2003 he completed Los Angeles Plays Itself, a three hour-long movie about the representation of Los Angeles in movies. It was voted the Best Documentary of 2003 in the Village Voice Film Critics’ Poll. He completed Get Out of the Car, a short 16mm portrait of Los Angeles.

?Reconversão? portrays 17 buildings and projects by Portuguese architect Eduardo Souto Moura, accompanied usually by his own writings. It is a search for his architecture, without critical commentary. Only the tour guide at Braga Stadium offers generalizations, which fit that work well enough, but it may be the exception, not the rule. Souto Moura has the last word: ?If there is nothing there, I invent a preexistence.? Technically, ?Reconversão? combines the crudeness of proto-cinema with the hyperrealism of digital cinema, bringing us back to the ideals of Dziga Vertov. Shooting only one or two frames per second and animating the images, in the manner of Muybridge, produces greater resolution, although not necessarily a greater sense of reality, and brings attention to the movements of water and vegetation that generally pass unnoticed.
