CINE TRANS EUROPE is the name of the one of a kind partnership between five festival, which resist to a cinema which keeps repeating the same kind of emotions and concepts, incapable to stop with dominating and reductive interpretations. This collaboration, started in April 2009, continues in Paris and in all the other partner festivals: Barcelona, Amsterdam, de Cork and Osnabrück.

Settled between film, video, collage and animation, an image detail pans a digitally mounted tableau that offers humans and animals space for their existence. From a bubbling primordial soup, reminiscent of Tarkovsky’s Solaris, the panorama shot glides along the coast. The central point is a seaport, built in the style of the late financial eclecticism and utilised by bizarre-seeming pachyderms, outlandish fluids and boat choreographies. The mystical journey ends in a rubbish Jacuzzi, located in a cave, near melancholic white women, looking around them.

In Burlesque, five soldiers prepare and enact a performance that evokes the aggressively physical games of the British public school. The performance of ritual, control and containment exalts the depersonalised, subjugated, censored body.

Media reports show how the wall surrounding the Shiite quarter in Baghdad is painted with beautiful landscapes: Aesthetic creation is used to cover military measures and war effects. In the film I am applying a similar technique regarding the overall situation: Pictures from conflict areas are layered with colour, changed, adorned.

Living in a small industrial area, a local neighbourhood activist is trying to fight the ever growing army of developers. The militant gang marches through the streets with flags and signs promoting the idea that such sensory effect like bad smell and health hazard like dust can keep the developers away and save the neighbourhood from gentrification.

"Naufrage" lists fears: the narration stops at the frozen instant. But "Naufrage" relates something. What is it talking about? We don't know... perhaps an accident, a depression, an explosion? This scene might be the summit of a catastrophe scenario: the moment of physical emotion. However, nothing in the sequence of events tries to explain this state of things.

The project documents the ordering of an oil painting after a photoshop-picture in China and the selling of this piece at a renowned auction. The tension of symbolic and material value and their creation within fine arts is put to a test.
