  • Analog Memories - The Hungarian Experimental Cinema

    By on

    LOOK INSIDE THE GHOST MACHINE (Péter Lichter / Hungary / 2012 / 4’)
    The first avant-garde filmmakers believed that cinema had the function of a machine, created to manage pure emotions.

    NUTRITION FUGUE (Péter Lichter / Hungary / 2018 / 4’)
    'Közért' (translation: 'for the public') was a chain of stores run by the government of Hungary during communism (1948-1989). The word 'közért' is still present in Hungarian. Our film was made with ads from these stores, their original 35mm films were decomposed and cut into pieces.

  • Contested Grounds: Films by Arthur and Corinne Cantrill

    By on

    Over a period of more than 60 years now, Arthur and Corinne Cantrill have created a filmic cosmos that is unrivaled in its polymorphic experimental visual and tonal abundance. Their works range from documentaries to experimental films, from multi-screen installations to performances and sound art. Between 1971 and 2000, they also edited and published Cantrill Filmnotes, an international journal about experimental film, video and the applied arts. Their oeuvre explores artists, social movements and particularly Australia’s landscape.

  • OffOff Cinema: Spaces of Cinema. Salon of the Ciné-Amateurs

    By on

    Curated by Petra Belç and Kaya Erdinç, the evening explores the works of Yugoslav (amateur) filmmakers who participated in the 1960s Genre Film Festival (GEFF), an experimental arts festival taking place in Zagreb. GEFF was initiated by a series of discussions under the aegis “Antifilm and Us” taking place in the Ciné-club Zagreb. With each new edition, the festival pushed the liberatory and the exploratory potential of cinema to the limit. Everything was allowed, and everything was questioned. The rules had to be broken as the organizers searched for a new vision of the world. Taking cues from the (un)realized performative ideas of the organizers and the structure of GEFF’s programme, Belç and Erdinç will revive its intentions and explore the existing possibilities of their deeply revolutionary and humanist vision.

  • Christopher Harris: still/here and Other Geographies

    By on

    Christopher Harris’s films often examine geographic space as a locus for competing layers of representation and perception. still/here (2000) is a meditation on the vast landscape of ruins and vacant lots that constitute the north side of St. Louis, Missouri, an area populated almost exclusively by working-class and working poor African Americans. The film explores the vestiges of a once-thriving community through evocative imagery of derelict cinemas, fading billboards, and abandoned domestic spaces, asking the viewer to reflect on the causes of this decay.

  • CRANC #18: Edwin Rostron

    By on

    Edwin Rostron is one of the most interesting British experimental animators of the moment. His films work mainly with drawings, with non-predetermined animation processes that allow the unconscious and surprise to enter. His personal graphic style merges with imagery and found sounds, creating a unique and non-transferable universe. In this session we will see a representative selection of his personal work, from an initial piece made at the university to his most recent films.
