Beach House
Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur | 17:0 | Royaume-Uni | 2015

Beach House is a film about a unique example of rural modernism, built on the UK coast of Suffolk by architect John Penn. Penn was an architect, painter, musician and poet whose nine houses in East Suffolk are all built with uncompromising symmetry adhering to the points of the compass in their positioning in the landscape they use a limited language of materials and form that were influenced by his time spent working in California with Richard Neutra. They are Californian modernist pavilions in the Suffolk landscape. - Beach House is John Penn’s most uncompromising design in terms of idea as form. The film combines an archive film made by Penn himself on completion of the house with experimental sound recordings made during the same period and material recently filmed in the house to explore a convergence of filmic and architectural language and allow the viewer to piece together Beach House in its past and present forms.

Nothing Found
Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur | 10:54 | Royaume-Uni | 2013

Nothing Found 2013 ?Nothing Found? takes place in a transition period between Valencia and London, seemingly occupying both places simultaneously in a pensive mood. The spaces in the film interlace and disorientate our perception of time and place and are imbued with a sense of stasis ? an unknown and empty anticipation ? that is quite contradictorily connected throughout by incessant movement. It is a visual study that reveals spectatorship?s impossible empathy, or perhaps spectatorship as a form of innocuous voyeurism. On the other hand, it is a sensitive insight into the impossibility of finding oneself in reflection - as it is in reflection that we find more questions rather than answers.

Charles Richardson is currently studying an MA in Fine Art Media at The Slade School of Art, London. Before studying his MA he lived 8 years in Spain where he did his BA in Malaga and Valencia. He also studied a year in Helsinki at the Aalto school of Innovation. Charles began as a painter and over his BA studies worked in many mediums ranging from performance to photography and sculpture. At the moment he is focusing on video as he finds it the most appropriate for his particular language of thought.

VALI ASR ? JUILLET 2006 Ce film a été tourné en sept jours durant l?été 2006, à Téhéran, capitale de la République islamique d?Iran. Le tournage se passe dans la rue Vali Asr, la plus longue et ancienne de Téhéran. Elle court sur 24 km, du nord au sud de la ville en passant par le centre et dévoile une image d?idéologies et de classes sociales très différentes. Le nom Vali Asr signifie « loi des temps » et se réfère à l?imam Muhammad al-Mahdi. En accord avec le dogme shiite, l?imam Mahdi est le vingtième et dernier successeur direct du prophète. Il est dit qu?il vécu pendant des siècles dans la clandestinité, sans donner de signes publics. La constitution de la République islamique d?Iran de 1979 désigna à la tête de l?état le vingtième Imam al-Mahdi. Les érudits islamiques, les Ayatollahs, ne sont que les représentants de l?Imam, attendant sa sortie de la clandestinité. Douze visages sont présentés. Un objet personnel est associé à chacune de ces douze personnes, excepté pour la dernière, une jeune fille. Ces personnes avaient ces objets avec eux au moment où ils ont été filmés.

You Are the Center of the World
Fiction expérimentale | 4k | couleur | 16:45 | Allemagne | 2015

“And all, all, all was nice and good” is the last sentence sung by a chorus of middle aged men that opens “You are the Center of the World”. A horse walks around, the hooves clatter in the courtyard of a pretty detached house.
 The three young men look around, wander through the deserted streets. Finally, they find themselves in a living room and remain in there.
 All they can do is wait and listen to the silence. Where are all the other people? Out there, something is wrong, for sure. The small town becomes a stage for the three local teenagers, who are looked at by the camera and „act acting“. Explicitly cinematic visual references are created, where the characters move and perform in.

Hoe kamelen leeuwen worden (How Camels Become Lions)
Fiction | 4k | couleur | 61:0 | Belgique | 2017

“ How camels become lions ” depicts the urge for freedom. Through 4 episodes we see 4 family members in a moment when they are tired of being a camel, as a beast of burden. They realise their tasks are meaningless and find themself in a spiritual desert. The camel wants to become a lion. A spirit that fights against the false values in order to find his own freedom. The title is based on “ Thus spoke Zarathustra ” by Friedrich Nietzsche. The character of Zarathustra confronts his audience with speeches. In his first speech he explains how you can become a free spirit through three transformations. The first stage is the one of the camel, willing to be controlled by others. During a second transformation, the camel becomes a lion, a rebel, who doesn’t allow anyone to tell him “ you shall ”. But, although the lion can react, he can’t create. For this, he needs to transform into a child. A child that thinks and acts independently of any structure. The characters of `How camels become lions` are in a transitional phase. Their state of discontent can be the beginning of a transformation to a lion, and who knows, afterwards, to a child.

Lydia Rigaux is a filmmaker born and living in Belgium. Her work navigates between fiction and documentary. An idea can start both from a fictional story or reality, yet during the process of making the film the line between those two becomes thinner due to the attempt to eliminate all false elements. Also the search of finding the “ right ” image to capture a situation or environment sweeps away that border. It appears to her that a certain moment or setting can only be captured in this one image, the “ right ” image. The dominance of this search controls the content and gives the film its own subject. In this way, the film creates its own reality.

The film explores a common land in the south of England, and the natural history society who occupy it. After two years of filming, the rushes were shown to the society - their memories and responses were recorded and used as the film’s narration. The film does not give access to complete knowledge of the history of humans within the area. Instead, it explores more generally, human’s relationship with and within landscape and nature.

Renovated by Bruno Fioretti Marquez Architects in 2008, the construction reproduces the original volume of Gropius` house. In the film, the house works as a metaphor of what is fossilized. The idea of Modernism remains in this case in a fossil state, and survives in time as a trace of what once was. This video is part of a reflection on the act of conservation (of ideas, of bodies) as a human activity.

There is a Happy Land Further Awaay
Film expérimental | 16mm | couleur et n&b | 20:0 | Royaume-Uni | 2015

THERE IS A HAPPY LAND FURTHER AWAAY (20 mins, S16, col/b+w, 2015) There Is A Happy Land Further Awaay (2015), captures the landscapes of the remote volcanic Republic of Vanuatu archipelago, before they were devastated by Cyclone Pam in early 2015, the footage becoming a ghostly document of an ecosystem now irrevocably altered. A hesitant female voice reads a poem by Henri Michaux, recounting a life lived in a distant land, full of faltering and mistakes. Island imagery of active volcanoes, underwater WW2 debris, children playing, and wrecked boats transform into intangible digital recollections of the island, made on the opposite side of the world. Images of the eroded land merge with eroding film, a lone figure on a boat drifts at sea.

Ben Rivers (born in 1972) is an artist and experimental filmmaker based in London. His work has been shown in many film festivals and galleries around the world and has won numerous awards. His work ranges from themes about exploring unknown wilderness territories to candid and intimate portrayals of real-life subjects. Rivers`s practice as a filmmaker treads a line between documentary and fiction. Often following and filming people who have in some way separated themselves from society, the raw film footage provides Rivers with a starting point for creating oblique narratives imagining alternative existences in marginal worlds. Rivers uses near-antique cameras and hand develops the 16 mm film, which shows the evidence of the elements it has been exposed to – the materiality of this medium forming part of the narrative.

?What would be left of human action, human traces, human constructions, human buildings and wider ripple effects of humans after that length of time?assuming, that humans disappear in the geologically near future.? A fragmented road trip through Britain on the peripheries. Down empty roads, off in the wilderness, a few lone stragglers. My first stop geologist Jan Zalasiewicz, talking about the Earth in One-hundred millions years time.

Ben Rivers studied Fine Art at Falmouth School of Art. Since then he has worked predominantly in 16mm film, showing in international festivals, galleries and UK theatres. Recent works have included two commissions from Paul Harnden Shoemakers ? making works which fall somewhere between documentary and fiction. These works are then exhibited in mock miniature cinemas in boutiques in Japan, Europe and USA. His latest work is an ongoing series of portraits of people living somehow outside of (the generally accepted idea of) society. The first part ? ?This Is My Land?, was premiered at London Film Festival 2006 and exhibited by Measure Arts in London 2007. In 1996, Ben co-founded and has since co-managed/programmed Brighton Cinematheque - renowned for screening a unique programme of film from its earliest days through to the latest artist?s film and video.

The Coming Race
Film expérimental | 16mm | noir et blanc | 5:0 | Royaume-Uni | 2006

Ce film retravaillé à la main montre des milliers de personnes faisant l'ascension d'un terrain sur une montagne rocheuse. La destination et l'objet de leur ascension restent obscurs. Un pèlerinage incertain, mystérieux et troublant pavé d'intentions inconnues. Le titre "The Coming Race" est tiré d'un roman de l'époque victorienne de E.G.E Bulwer-Lytton portant sur un peuple vivant sous une montagne.

Ah, Liberty!
Doc. expérimental | 16mm | noir et blanc | 16:0 | Royaume-Uni | 2008

La maison d?une famille dans le désert, en dehors du temps ; des animaux élevés en plein air et des enfants, un bric-à-brac et la nature, le tout dans un paysage des plus sublimes. Le travail vise à représenter l?idée de liberté, qui se reflète dans l?utilisation manuelle du format scope, affaiblie par une sorte de mauvais pressentiment. Il n'y a pas d'histoire particulière, seulement des fragments de vie vécue, de rites effectués.

Trees Down Here
Doc. expérimental | 16mm | couleur | 13:56 | Royaume-Uni | 2018

Trees are the silent characters, narrating the architecture and life of Churchill College (opened in 1960) through its natural history. 6’s Cowan Court (completed in 2016) inverted the spatial and material order of the picturesque Brutalism of the original college, shifting its mineral world of brick and shuttered concrete to timber. Cowan Court’s oak, both new and old, defines its structure and in turn encloses a central court filled with recently planted birch trees. The analogue materiality of Churchill College is matched by the film which, like the architecture and landscape, leaves traces of its own development. The human habitat is seen through nature ‘ swaying trees, lost animals, birds of prey, the seasons “ to create a new dreamlike environment in which any distinction between human life, architecture and nature is erased.

Ben Rivers studied Fine Art at Falmouth School of Art, initially in sculpture before moving into photography and super8 film. After his degree he taught himself 16mm filmmaking and hand-processing. His practice as a filmmaker treads a line between documentary and fiction. Often following and filming people who have in some way separated themselves from society, the raw film footage provides Rivers with a starting point for creating oblique narratives imagining alternative existences in marginal worlds. He is the recipient of numerous prizes including: FIPRESCI International Critics Prize, 68th Venice Film Festival for his first feature film Two Years At Sea; the Baloise Art Prize, Art Basel 42, 2011; shortlisted for the Jarman Award 2010/2012; Paul Hamlyn Foundation Award for Artists, 2010. Recent exhibitions include: Slow Action, Hepworth Wakefield, 2012; Sack Barrow, Hayward Gallery, London, 2011; Slow Action, Mattâ’s Gallery, London and Gallery TPW, Toronto, 2011; A World Rattled of Habit, A Foundation, Liverpool, 2009. Artist-in-focus include Courtisane Festival; Pesaro International Film Festival; London Film Festival; Tirana Film Festival; Punto de Vista, Pamplona; Indielisboa and Milan Film Festival. In 1996 he co-founded Brighton Cinematheque which he then co-programmed through to its demise in 2006 “ renowned for screening a unique programme of film from its earliest days through to the latest artistâ’s film and video.

Fortunate Isles: Landings
Vidéo | hdv | noir et blanc | 3:50 | USA | 2016

Drawing upon the name of earthly paradise in Greek mythology, the film ‘Fortunate Isles: Landings’ explores the awakening of sentience and biological complexity within digital images. To fully inhabit utopian and cinematic visions of analog & digital interpretations of landscape, ‘Fortunate Isles: Landings’ is filmed on location at sites of human achievement and continuous habitation; the level Bonneville Salt Flats, Utah and remote cliffs of Salvage, Newfoundland. During filming, performers wore chroma-key suits on location that, in post-production, allow the suit’s geometric faces to be digitally blanked and replaced with hand-drawn animation. Through the dialogue of gaps and joins created by the subtle collapsed spaces between layers of inter-narrative animation, questions of evolution, reality, and wonder begin to surface. The figures each carry a drawn experience inscribed into their outer forms. A patina of frames progressing forward echoes an imprinted memory; Landscapes are portable.

Jacob Rivkin is an interdisciplinary artist living and working in Philadelphia, PA, USA. His animations and sculptures focus on how we experience and internalize landscape, memory, and desire. His work has exhibited widely, including at the Arlington Arts Center, the Chemical Heritage Foundation Museum, the Vancouver Art Gallery, the Animation Block Party, and the National Museum of Australia. He holds lecturer positions at the University of Pennsylvania and the Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University. He received his MFA from the University of Pennsylvania in 2013 and BA from Vassar College in 2007. His awards include selection as a finalist for the anthropoScene Film Competition in 2016, a Fulbright Student Grant in 2008 to study Chinese Traditional Landscape Painting in Hangzhou, China, and the Weitzel Barber Art Travel Prize in 2006 to study Buddhist Sculpture Practices in Western China. He is a member of the OOF Animation Collective and in 2014 he was an Artist-in-Residence at the Hacktory in Philadelphia, PA.
