The Program


You and Me

Karsten Krause
2009 | 0:12:35

A woman is walking towards her husband's camera through four decades. A love story on small gauge film accompanied by the voice of another woman, reading a poem by E.E. Cummings. Touching and poetic.





Gérard Cairaschi
2013 / 0:07:00

Carried by a song, images and fragments of narration intertwine. Simulacrum, magical or religious ritual, ritual of death or rite of passage, nothing is explicit in the action that deploys amongst the characters, between the extreme proximity and, at the same time, the absolute distance expressed by the gestures and bodies.


We will become Oil

Mihai Grecu
2011 | 0:08:00

Apocalyptic and grotesque vision about the end of human history.


The Metrics of Coincidence (Die Metrik des Zufalls)

Werner Biedermann
/ 2012 / 0:04:00

Human life might be regarded as a round dance of mer coincidence, or as the result of either natural, or spiritual determination. In the format of found footage, the film 'The Metrics of Coincidence' presents the essence of a possible design of a biography. By a kind of patchworked parcours through film history, series of frames have been removed from their original context and rearranged into a new one. Thus a 'biography' has been composed: one that is possible only by the means of film montage and the viewer's imagination.


False Friends (Falsche Freunde)

Sylvia Schedelbauer
2007 / 0:05:00

A montage of mid-century found footage: mysterious strands are obsessively braided to create a poetic reflection about an anxious interplay of memory and projection.

All noise contains coloured particles of different substance and meaning. Fragile and sensitive, the fragments glide into abstract lines, colours and composition, creating Flimmer.


Tomo - Deserted Territoy Caused by the War (Tomo - Territoire désserté du fait de la Guerre)

Bakary Diallo
2011 | 0:07:00

Tom is an imaginary tale, it recalls the literal nature of the word bambara: a territory deserted because of the war. Conflict in arms and conflict in minds. It is the story of a psychologically disturbed character by his subjective experience of violence. He leaves his room and through a village ravaged, abandoned, it is inhabited by the spirits of those who lived there. They are represented by ghosts, ectoplasm, characters in flame and smoke. They perform everyday movements closer to reality


The Salt of the Moon (Sal da Lua)

Cristina Miranda
2010 | 0:05:00

A short move about the cost of the colonial presence in the streets of Rio de Janeiro. The film mixes images of Rio and Paris, how to draw a disturbance among the two cities, through a night journey made by a female character who walks through the city to the sea.


A Film

Hisham Bizri
Lebanon, USA
2010 | 0:08:30

This is a film poem about love. A Lebanese-American filmmaker photographs a woman in Paris: as a trapeze artist, a model, a lover, and a child. The film attempts to capture that moment between wakefulness and dream. It carries within it melancholy and loneliness, sadness and joy, adulthood and childhood. It evolves out of the metaphor that life is a circular journey whose end is "to arrive where we started / And know that place for the first time" (T. S. Eliot, Little Gidding).
