Impressions d?Est après la chute du mur. « Tous ces pays, en pleine mutation, qui ont vécu une histoire commune depuis la guerre, encore très marqués par cette histoire jusque dans les replis même de la terre et dont maintenant les chemins divergent. » (Chantal Akerman) D?Est est un film quasiment sans parole, le contraire des Histoires d?Amérique (où la parole est prépondérante) et en même temps son prolongement. « D?Est est profondément fictionnel, parce que cela permet au spectateur de se raconter des histoires. Le cadre aussi y est pour beaucoup, il n?est jamais documentaire. Je ne dis pas, je vais tout vous dire sur la Russie. D?Est n?est pas qu?un film sur l?Europe de l?Est. Ces images, je les avais déjà en moi. Cela a à voir avec les camps, les évacuations, les images d?avant moi. » (Chantal Akerman)


Chantal Akerman est issue d'une famille émigrée d'Europe centrale dans les années 30. Elle est née à Bruxelles en 1950. Elle étudie le cinéma à l'Insas (Institut supérieur des Arts, du Spectacle et des Techniques de Diffusion), à Bruxelles. Après un premier court métrage, elle émigre à New York, où elle se passionne pour le cinéma expérimental de l'Américain Jonas Mekas et du Canadien Michael Snow, dont l'influence est perceptible dans les premières réalisations de la cinéaste. Sur place, elle réalise un court métrage et s'essaie au format long (Hotel Monterey, consacré à un hôtel pour nécessiteux de New York). Revenue en France, elle alterne, depuis 1968, documentaires (Un jour Pina a demande Pina Bausch, D'Est, Sud sur le lynchage d'un jeune Noir américain, De l'autre côté), et films de fiction (Toute une nuit, Nuit et Jour, etc.).

A Família do Capitão Gervasio
Doc. expérimental | 16mm | noir et blanc | 14:0 | Danemark | Brésil | 2013

Captain Gervasio`s Family is a 16mm black and white silent portrait of a Spiritist community in Palmelo, a small town in the interior of Brazil. It?s a town of 2000 inhabitants, half of whom are psychic mediums. The film refers to a map drawn by a Spiritist woman in Palmelo, charting twenty astral cities hovering above the whole of the Brazilian territory. Cities ?like those on earth, but infinitely more perfect?. The Spiritists in Palmelo practice what is known as `the magnetic chain?, a legacy from the German physician Franz Mesmer, the founder of Spiritism Allan Kardec, and the French botanist François Deleuze. The film is a collaboration between the artists Tamar Guimaraes (BR) and Kasper Akhøj (DK).

Quantum Political Feedback
Vidéo expérimentale | hdv | couleur | 8:0 | France | Royaume-Uni | 2017

In the video, the artists combine pseudoscience with repetition to investigate the connection between technology and truth. An E-meter device was exploited as a crude polygraph machine. Its pseudoscientific function is to "detect lies" in order to monitor a statement`s progression from lie to truth. Statements were read to and repeated by the participants. Through continuous repetition, the subjects built a relationship with the spoken words, which over time, matured into experiences and finally beliefs. All of the combined elements resulted in mettre en abîme the transformation of a political affirmation into a belief.

Edward Akrout is a Franco-British artist that works between London, New York and Paris. His practice, which largely includes painting, drawing and sculpting, is best described as abstract expressionism.

After the first Gulf War in 1991, countless oil fields in Kuwait were set ablaze during the retreat of invading forces. Those months following the war were nothing short of the classic image of a biblical apocalypse: the earth belching fire and the black scorched sky felt like a portrait of hell as it should be, an almost romanticized vision of the end of the world. Werner Herzog, lured by the surrealism of this present-day hell, shot his docu-fiction film “Lessons of Darkness” there which placed images of the oil fires alongside Christian biblical texts and a Wagner soundtrack. Inspired by his endeavor, this video re-explores the cataclysmic event and attempts to expand its meaning, especially as the idea of imminent doom is even more omnipresent today. Amateur VHS video footage of the oil fires is juxtaposed with audio monologues from Islamic television programs of the same period. At the time, the tools used to represent religion were geared towards visualizing god through nature. Trees, waterfalls, mountains, and animals were the visual staple of religious media, and the narration was not that of the Koran, but of Arabic poetry recited by a skilled orator with a deep voice.

Monira Al Qadiri is a Kuwaiti visual artist and film maker born in Senegal and educated in Japan. In 2010, she received a Ph.D. in inter-media art from Tokyo University of the Arts, where her research was focused on the aesthetics of sadness in the Middle-East region stemming from poetry, music, art and religious practices. Her work explores the relationship between narcissism and masculinity, as well as other dysfunctional gender roles. She is currently expanding her practice towards social and political subjects. Al Qadiri has taken part in exhibitions and film screenings in Tokyo, Kuwait, Beirut, Dubai, Berlin, New York and Moscow among others. She is also part of the artist collective GCC, who has recently held a solo exhibition at MoMA PS1 in 2014.

The Craft
Film expérimental | hdv | couleur | 16:0 | Koweït | 2017

“ The Craft ”is a film that revolves around childish fictions laced with serious suspicions towards the real world. Using the lens of family history, the film dissects the artist’s own past to reexamine an uncanny relationship taking place in the shadows of her major life events: “ Were my parents conspiring with aliens behind my back ” Reality gradually disintegrates like quicksand around this central question, as paranoia and speculation begin to take hold. Futuristic architecture, popular culture, dream readings, junk food, alien abductions, geopolitics, international diplomacy, war and peace; all of these once solid staples of modern life now become tinted with a general sense of distrust, overshadowing everything. Like a ticking time bomb at the center of the nuclear family unit, the suspicion reaches a crescendo when the protagonist suddenly discovers that the American century has finally ended.

Another Gate Before The Law (HDVideo, B&W, 17m13, Michiel Alberts, 2017) Michiel Alberts is currently working on a series of K. Films. The films relate to different short texts by F. Kafka. Michiel Alberts performs and films his actions in order to transform the stories into a visual image bringing it to current and existential scenery. The film Another Gate Before The Law refers to the text Before the Law, by F. Kafka. The film is a dark poetic image dealing with the present state of our time and to current human conditions.

(Born The Netherlands, 1972. Lives and Works in Antwerp, Belgium.) Michiel Alberts is a Visual artist working with the media Performance, Film and Photography. In his film works he focuses upon his performative presence, movements with duration or repetitive actions. Through the usage of single angel point, the audience is invited to experience a frozen state and relate to existential questions and human conditions. His films can be described as a still picture moving, a state of presence unresolved. “ My physical presence functions as a performative tool to question human conditions, cosmic order, time and landscapes. Through forms of abstraction I bring my content from a specific happening, or a specific social context to a larger existential scenery." Michiel Alberts has studied Visual Art at the H.I.S.K. institute in Antwerp and Gent (2008). He also completed a Master of Arts at Dasarts in Amsterdam (2005) and completed the Acting School of Maastricht (1997)

Gravitation
Fiction expérimentale | hdv | couleur | 3:0 | Roumanie | Pays-Bas | 2011

"GRAVITATION" deals with the idea of European identity and the desire to export it, desire which is deep inside of this identity. A long tradition. It is a tale of mistaken identity and murder, human weakness and individual deficiencies. It is a fatalistic tale of one man?s vain struggle to escape his own limitations, unfortunately an impossibility in the world of noir. The film Gravitation gives me the opportunity to investigate the structuralist film concept, the so-called ?Film Low?. The different actions which in the real life stay under the Nature Low, will have to be in the film under the ?Film Low? : montage, light, perspective, acting, actors and camera choreography and more others film components . Using very reduced but very eloquent / representative objects for the film set will create pictures which have to suggest the acting place. This objects must have a strong relation to the `film place` (typical for the place) so that the viewer, by his visual perception, can be able to trust the authenticity of the picture as a film construction - instead as an illustration. The question for me, is how far I can reduce this elements and on which things, on which elements I have to reduce the decoration of the film `stage` to get the visual suggestion instead of the illustration. That it is one of my research point. The Film will use apparently prosaic structures (narration) but during the editing and the alienation process it has to be percepted as a poetic work. Poetry deals with tempo, with rhythm. In the film, economic tempo and rhythm are matters who belong and are decided more in the editing room. The alienation process is one of the main points in my Film. The Film process have to be transparent, so that film structures and effect modalities will recognize it. I believe that this transparency offers the opportunity to reflect about new modalities of telling a story using the Film. To me, this alienation process helps us to make our `automated` perception - by language and social conventions, more difficult and thereby to get a new vision of the things which can correct our relationship to the environment. Then new forms appear, and this forms and their determinant process become the actual object of artistic perception, in the end the the art subject. Using a linear visual guided treatment will permit to give up a psychological motivation, and to make the non-artistic interpretations harder. The Sound will have a strict autonomous function in Film, and will try so much possible to not be used as a naturalistic synchronic language.

There is a table in the middle of the countryside, but the guests are absent. There is a feast of food and wine waiting in the cold weather and the dry landscape. The vultures are to come and eat our food and destroy our setting: the still life, the banquet, the space of enjoyment and civilization. The vultures, the beasts linked to death and dirt, to violence and fear, arrive by surprise, and like in a fable, represent for us some of our own qualities.

Greta Alfaro (Spain, 1977) is currently studying an MA in Photography at the Royal College of Art, London. In recent years she has been the recipient of several grants and scholarships among which are Matadero-City Council of Madrid, Casa de Velázquez, Fundación BilbaoArte, the Government of Mexico or the Genesis Foundation.

Vidéo expérimentale | dv | couleur | 16:30 | France | 2005

Intime, de Pierre Alféri est un travail à la fois littéraire et vidéopoétique, où l`espace du voyage est celui de la langue. C`est une traversée en images, traversée de lieux et de paysages, et en mots, lettres adrésées à des anonymes, qui dépouillés de leur "moi" sont dépeints comme des caractères. L`intime n`est donc pas celui du "moi" de l`être mais naît du déséquilibre crée par les mots, qui tissent alors des liens rendus nécessaires entre les personnages.


Pierre Alféri est né à Paris en 1963. Il a fondé la revue `Détail` avec Suzanne Doppelt et est également co-fondateur de `La revue littéraire générale` avec Olivier Cadiot. Il est pensionnaire de l`Académie de France à Rome entre 1987 et 1988 et `écrivain résident` de la Fondation Royaumont entre 1991 et 1992.

Filmed in a neglected expat housing complex in Hawalli, this out of context mirage disorients the familiarity or nostalgia of the space. The multicultural neighborhood vibrates with a multicultural working force who have consciously migrated from their diverse backgrounds to participate in the daily routine designated by a profiting developer. The tiling of the colonnade, as is the tiling of the dress, is reflective of the blurring of these expat cultures to camouflage within the existing- the existing which is not only foreign to them but foreign to the space - creating the out of context "Where am I?" phenomenon. These diverse cultures try to adapt to a "?" culture imposed by another country whilst struggling to identify between pre-imposed ethnic stereotypes and their traditional heritage. The freedom of the body is limited to the disproportion of the imposed cage, irritated within the larger cage of the structure.

Newsreel

« Newsreel » peut être considéré comme une tentative de décrire et déconstruire l'esthétique des journaux télévisés en prenant comme point de départ un journal du Channel 4 suédois. Les informations quotidiennes jouent un grand rôle dans notre vie de tous les jours. Nous devenons de plus en plus dépendants et habitués à la qualité informative des nouveaux médias. Ils nous font prendre conscience du monde qui nous entoure et du débat mondial. En même temps, on pourrait soutenir que le journal télévisé repose souvent sur une structure narrative que l?on retrouve dans l'histoire du cinéma. « Newsreel » tente d?examiner si, et comment, le présentateur, le décor du studio, et la structure des informations se réfèrent à des règles narratologiques, et ce qui se passe si on les enfreint. S?il est vrai que l'objectif du journal est de nous informer de manière intelligible sur des questions et des événements importants et urgents, l?auteur voudrait repartir de ce qui rend les choses compréhensibles ainsi que poser la question plus large : qu?est-ce que l'intelligibilité ? En séparant les informations des procédés qui en communiquent le contenu, l?auteur veut créer la possibilité de prendre de la distance et de regarder le journal télévisé d?un ?il différent.

The Majority Never Has Right on its Side is a film project about the Summerhill School in England, established in 1921 and still open. The school is known for its anti-authoritarian pedagogy built on the egalitarian principles of A.S. Neill, a socialist schoolmaster from Scotland often described as a “cynical utopian”. The film looks at the school today in relation to its “image” by using the school’s own film and video archive.

Emanuel Almborg’s work is often research-based and includes film, photography, installation and lectures and deals with themes around community and communication, utopian imagination, history and education. His work has recently been shown at Moderna Museet, Malmö and Elizabeth Foundation, New York. He finished the Whitney Independent Study program in New York, 2015 and is currently a PhD candidate at The Royal Institute of Art, Stockholm, Sweden.

The characteristics of our subconsciousness has its own model of reality. Human-being is trying to distinguish where simulation starts and ends. But the self-reflection of consciousness is full of absurdity itself... What is REAL? And what is REALLY happening?

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.

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.

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.
