The Third Degree
The Third degree


Damir Okor

Croatia
2015 / 0:10:00

The Third Degree cuts through the collective haze that blurs the worlds many realities, and gives rise to alternative methods of understanding as a reflection determined at the same time by social, political and aesthetic parameters.

The artist films herself and develops the use of camera as an extension of the moving body. Three parts correspond to three phases in a transforming process from obsessive and complacent mind activity towards the abandon to the dance.

Letter from Korlai
Letter from Korlai


Aman Wadhan

India
2015 / 0:23:00

On Indias Konkan coast, in the village of Korlai, a sense of quaintness pervades its Portuguese heritage, the Creole, the faces, and the fort. The filmmaker had visited this place once, as did his friend, of whom nothing is ever said. Years later, an assignment brings the filmmaker back to Korlai. Memories revive but what compels his wayward excursion this time is the elemental and the immemorial wherein his solitude finds refuge. In the time of yellow grass, with steps receding and prayers unanswered, a desire for oblivion forks the search for images of exile and belongingness. This experience surfaces through grainy 16mm images and an elegiac voice-over which retrace a sense of remembrance, loss, perception, and time intersecting with an inner self and with history. A letter for Korlai also becomes a letter to a dear departed; and in reading this letter, in seeking a new way of inhabiting the world, a vision of Korlai emerges that is both attentive and phantasmagoric, a series of possible angles and tributaries that the viewer and traveller might possibly take.

Sea of Ash
Sea of Ash


Michael MacGarry

South Africa
2015 / 0:12:00

The form of the film is one of a fable, that grafts Thomas Mann’s 1925 novella, Death in Venice, to the contemporary issue of African refugees and immigrants in Italy. The film takes Mann’s book as a nexus point and expands upon a number of themes inherent in it. In Sea of Ash, Mann’s character Tadzio is an immigrant to Italy from West Africa (Senegal) who has survived the treacherous and often fatal journey by sea. While the lead character of the original – von Aschenbach – is embodied in the unseen filmmaker himself. The narrative of the film follows Tadzio on a short journey from the remarkable Brion Cemetery at San Vito in the mountains of Northern Italy to the coastal area of the Venetian lagoon. On Lido Island he visits the famous Hotel dés Bains as featured in Luchino Visconti’s 1971 film version of Death in Venice. The film concludes on the dés Baines beach, with Tadzio embarking on a doomed attempt to return home.

The genuine disease diary leads into the soulscape of a person suffering from OCD: „Bad images should disappear suddenly!“ Since negative images mustn’t been thought. Nevertheless, they are here and constantly circling in the brain. The compulsive actions should dispel them... A vicious circle.

October 1 - 9, 2016

The section "Cinéma in Transgression" offers middle or feature lengh films out of norm and order, between fiction and documentary, characterised by complex audio-visual languages, unpredictable associations based on unconcient, metaphorical and metonymical proceedings. In this way these films can express the complexity of reality.
