les oiseaux d'Arabie
Documentaire | super8 | couleur et n&b | 40:0 | France | 2009

A l?aube de la seconde guerre mondiale, des milliers de réfugiés espagnols traversent les Pyrénées pour fuir l?avance des Franquistes. Antonio Atarès est l?un d?eux : un visage parmi d?autres. Arrivé en France, il est interné au camp du Vernet en Ariège. En mars 1941, il reçoit une lettre de quelqu?un qu?il ne connaît pas, la philosophe Simone Weil. Ces deux destins vont se croiser dans la pénombre de l?histoire. D?un côté, une philosophe juive engagée dans une lutte politique et mystique à Marseille, et de l?autre un paysan anarchiste exilé au Vernet puis aux portes du Sahara, à Djelfa en Algérie.


David Yon est né le 28 avril 1979 à Provins. Il travaille et habite à Lyon. En 2005, il obtient un Master 2 de réalisation de film documentaire à Lussas. Depuis 2006, il partage son temps entre ses recherches autour de l?image et du son et une activité professionnelle dans une médiathèque où il anime des ateliers et programme des films. En 2007, il concrétise avec des proches son désir de créer une revue autour du cinéma alliant un livre et un dvd à un site internet : "Dérives". En avril 2009, il termine son premier film produit : "Les Oiseaux d?Arabie".

Alyscamps
Vidéo expérimentale | dv | couleur | 8:0 | Afrique du sud | France | 2007

Alyscamps revisite la coutume pré-chrétienne connue sous le nom de "drue de mourtilage" de manière non-narrative. Filmée à Arles et St-Gervais en France, Cape Town et Robben Island en Afrique du Sud, cette projection vidéo de huit minutes explore le mythe du vaisseau fantôme (des marins condamnés à naviguer pour l'éternité) à travers une série de scènes hypnotiques de dévastation, d'inondations, d'incendies et de mort. Dans les anciens temps, des cadavres de tout le sud de l'Europe étaient placés dans des radeaux peu profonds et envoyés sur le Rhône vers la célèbre nécropole d'Arles, Les Alyscamps. Là, les corps étaient mis dans d'énormes sarcophages de pierre. Cependant, la population d'Arles, aidée et soutenue par leurs évêques, pillèrent Les Alyscamps et vendirent ces trésors de cercueils en pierres gravées. D'après la légende, l'évêque de Arles fût confronté une nuit par l'apparition d'un vaisseau fantôme qui sortit des brumes de la Camargue. Étonnamment, mille ans plus tard, le futur roi d'Angleterre fût confronté à une apparition similaire lorsqu'il quittait Cape Town à voile en 1881.

Al fayadan (The Flood)
Fiction | 4k | couleur | 19:48 | Liban | 2017

a video that attempts to portray an eerie study of seclusion, alienation in and through the image of the fugitive. the main character occupying the images is an anti-hero recluse who resides in a state of self-inflicted introspection. the character is transcended through a narrative thread of non-fiction moments and segments, into a cluster of morose stagnation and insistent malaise. *secrecy molds the morbid drifting of hatem, a man who works in privacy and lives his life accordingly. hatem hides more than he tells, clouding himself in a reclusive state of introspection.

Born in 1989, I am an artist-filmmaker from beirut. I finished my bachelors in audiovisual studies, with a specialization in cinema, from saint joseph university, beirut in 2013 with my film “ transmission ”. afterwards, I went on to collaborate with ashkal alwan, which led to my 2014 ongoing film project titled “ a thin soft layer of ”. I graduated from the film masters program at the netherlands film academy in 2017 with a thesis exploring the self-alienation and seclusion that deviant members of society may inflict on themselves as an act of escapism. I’ve worked in different fields related to film, including cinematography, editing, sound, development, production as well as assembling my own process, first and foremost as a filmmaker, but also as a researcher.

Counterlight
Fiction expérimentale | 4k | couleur | 23:30 | Israel | 2016

The film “ Counterlight ” by Artist Maya Zack is the 3rd part of her award-winning Memory Trilogy following “ Mother Economy ” and “ Black and White Rule”. “ Counterlight ” is a hypnotic journey into the depths of consciousness that follows the traces of poet Paul Celan, one of the greatest poets of the modern-postmodern era. A female archive researcher listens to extracts from original recordings by the poet and gradually changes from an archivist into an alchemist. She dissects in an almost surgical manner the archival materials“ photographs, maps, documents and poems ” that will enable her to reconstruct and resurrect the past and intervene in it till the boundaries between reality and documentation, past and present are blurred. In a surrealistic process, she penetrates the space of an old street photograph of 1937 Czernowitz and meets Celan’s mother who is baking challah bread in her kitchen, until her task transforms into female magic which leads to the creation of the “ memory-golem” In recent years, Zack researched Paul Celan’s world and creative process, through the actual as well as mythical female figures in his life. To these, she has interwoven images of death and birth and dedicated the film to the memory of her mother.

Maya Zack (B. 1976, Israel) is a visual artist and filmmaker working with video, computerized visualizations, installation and drawing. Her work ties together themes of memory, history, virtuality and metaphysics. Zack is a lecturer in Bezalel Academy of Art and Design Jerusalem where she had graduated in 2000 .B.F.A Magna Cum Laude. She studied at the Tel Aviv University 2008-12 and in Kunsthochschule Berlin-Weissensee Student Exchange Program.

D'après les projets des nationalsocialistes, la station balnéaire Prora "La force par la joie" sur l'île de Rügen aurait du pouvoir accueillir 20 000 vacanciers. Mais les travaux ont été interrompu au début de la seconde guerre mondiale. Sur ce terrain en friche a eu lieu pendant l'été 2003 le "Jugendevent Prora03", début d'une campagne dénonçant l'émigration de jeunes gens de Mecklembourg-Poméranie occidentale et de l'ex-RDA. Sous la devise "Qui si ce n'est pas nous, àù si ce n'est pas ici" 15 000 jeunes sont venus pour trois jours à Prora. Le film montre à travers de longues prises de vue sans commentaire les préparatifs pour le festival.

Le travail vidéo poursuit l'idée de l'impossibilité de la perception. Principalement, c'est la mémoire qui formule la réalité et la perception. Des sentiments d'étrangeté et la perte de sécurité suivent l'homme sur son chemin ou a la recherche d'un "Chez-soi". Ce "chez-soi" je le comprends sous le terme xora développé par J. Derrida. Le titre de la vidéo commence par le mot anglais, « movie » qui au moment ou il est prononcé peut être au même moment perçu comme le mot polonais que il/elle dit.

Situé dans la ville de Ahlen, en Allemagne, « My Temporary Visiting Position From The Sunset Terrace Bar », est généré par un serveur informatique qui imite un film de paysage au crépuscule tourné par un amateur. Alors que les images de la ville sont préenregistrées, le ciel est capté en temps réel à partir d'une webcam qui filme le ciel de Naples (Italie) au coucher du soleil. Le ciel résulte donc toujours changeant. Le site qui héberge le projet produit un nouveau film chaque jour, et l?enregistre dans une archive. Cette ?uvre, qui affronte des thèmes tels que l'exil, la migration et le contrôle des frontières, est magnifié par un poème du prestigieux auteur Ghada Samman et par la musique du groupe international Gotan Project et du légendaire compositeur Gabriel Yared.


Carlo Zanni est né à La Spezia (Italie) en 1975. Il fait partie des pionniers parmi les artistes nouveaux médias de sa génération. Durant les huit dernières années, Carlo Zanni a constamment exploré une nouvelle approche radicale de l'art consistant à utiliser des matériaux recueillis en direct sur Internet pour façonner des formes qui reflètent les questions d'actualité de notre vie. Ses ?uvres ont été montrées dans tout le monde, dans de nombreux musées et galeries, notamment au MAXXI Museum de Rome en 2006-2007, au New Museum de New York en 2005, au Gavin Brown?s Enterprise at Passerby de New York en 2005, au P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center de New York en 2001. Le Institute of Contemporary Arts de Londres lui a consacré sa première rétrospective en octobre 2005 et a publié son livre « Vitalogy ». En octobre 2006, le documentaire « 8-bit » de l?artiste et metteur en scène Marcin Ramocki, dont la première a eu lieu au MoMA de New York, présentait une interview de Carlo Zanni.

Heart of Hunger
Fiction expérimentale | hdv | couleur | 29:0 | Brésil | Pays-Bas | 2018

Haunted by the ghost of a long-lost love, two friends travel by boat and play games of lust and sadism. Within this chain of lament and secret desires, new figures emerge. They lose each other, they find each other; the heart is a lonely hunter.

Bernardo Zanotta (1996, Porto Alegre) is a Brazilian visual artist and filmmaker. His films take shape as research-based projects where crossings within literature and the moving image are explored. Interests which gravitate around his practice are: the presence of the past in the future, the queering of canonical literary texts and the performativity of cinema. In recent years, he has screened and exhibited at festivals and venues such as the Locarno Film Festival, Oberhausen Kurzfilmtage, Fundación BilbaoArte and the Nieuwe Vide Foundation. He is based in Amsterdam and holds a bachelor degree in Moving Image from the Gerrit Rietveld Academie.

Prima Vita is part of a series about mechanized landscapes. A short piece recorded in Barcelona´s container terminal from Montjuïc, a nearby hill overlooking the city. Huge tired cranes roll along aisles made of thousands of containers stacked on top of each other in an otherwise rigid matrix that provides for efficient storage and transport between large ships and trucks. The cranes are operated by a single driver assisted by computers in a carefully choreographed dance thru the meadows of invisible goods. Landscape is a machine part of larger machines, where humans, surface rolling vehicles and ships are gears in permanent interaction.

Morning Smile
Fiction expérimentale | 16mm | noir et blanc | 30:0 | Italie | 2005

MORNING SMILE est la première oeuvre de Zapruder sur la trilogie de George Bataille. Elle porte le parfum de l'oubli, comme suspendue dans le temps. Après avoir passé une nuit ensemble, Dirty et Troppman se retrouvent dans la chambre d'un hotel Savoy. Dirty est éméchée, elle peine à parler et dit n'importe quoi. L'alcool anésthésie son cerveau et attise ses peurs, "la peur corrige tout le monde" dit Dirty, avant de s'oublier dans ses vêtements. Troppman est témoin de la souffrance de la jeune femme. La chambre d'hôtel, "réservée" pour les amants, n'est pas un refuge douillet, il s'agit d'un lieu ouvert qui laisse entrer une autre histoire, une autre chambre : la chambre nuptiale pour laquelle avaient été commandés les quatre tableaux de Botticelli représentant une scène de chasse, dont la proie était une jeune fille. Les peintures évoquent la peur de la damnation. "Morning Smile" s'inspire de "Dirty" de George Bataille, et se rapproche de la huitième nouvelle du cinquième jour du Décaméron.


Le collectif de cinéastes ZAPRUDER a été crée par David Zamagni (né en 1971 à Rimini), Nadia Ranocchi (né en 1973 à Rimini) et Monaldo Moretti (né en 1972 à Recanati). Zapruder est établi à Roncofreddo (Forli-Cesena) en Italie. D.Zamagni et N.Ranocchi tournent en 1998 trois animations : "Tony the fireman", "Marylin and the K." et "Steak & Chips". En 1999, David Zamagni, Enrico Casagrande et Daniela Nicolo réalisent "O.F. ovvero Orlando Furioso impunemente eseguito da Motus" en collaboration avec la compagnie 'Motus', qui est récompensé au "Riccione TTV Performing Arts on screen Festival 2000". Suivent "H.O.L.Y.", signalé au Festival du film de Bellaria, et "Revolver V.M. 18", une installation vidéo réalisée en collaboration avec l'écrivain Isabella Santacroce et montrée à "Brescia Music Art 2000". En 2001, "J.G." est récompensé lors du festival Iceberg 2002. Parmi les autres réalisations du collectif : "Totentanz", "Nervi" (récompensé lors du Festival du film Bellaria 2001), "SPRING ROLL" (récompensé lors du 48ème Festival du court métrage d'Oberhausen, mention spéciale de l''Unimovie 2001' de Pescara et prix 'Fiaticorti Nuove Frontiere', "Doggy bag with Spring roll" (mention spéciale au "Premio D.A.M.S", 2002). En 2002, Zapruder collabore avec la compagnie "Fanny & Alexander" pour réaliser la vidéo de la performance "Requiem". Les deux troupes produisent et réalisent ensemble la vidéo "R for Redrum" (L.De Angelis), récompensée lors du "Riccione TTV festival performing arts on screen". A l'occasion de ce festival, Zapruder et Fanny & Alexander présentent l'installation vidéo sur trois écrans "speak memory speak". En 2003, ils fondent le projet nabokovien "ADA", associant six scènes de théâtre avec des images vidéo de Zapruder. Cette année sont présentées l'installation vidéo "VILLA VENUS" à l'université Monash (Prato), ainsi que la performance "Ardis I" lors du Festival Ravenna. Suit "Ardis II" en 2004, présenté lors du Kunsten Festival des arts de Bruxelles. En juin 2005 "Vaniada" est présentée lors du Festival des collines turinoises : il s'agit de la dernière performance nabokovienne de la compagnie Fanny & Alexander contenant des images vidéo signées Zapruder. En novembre, "Morning Smile" est présenté à la 11ème Biennale de l'image en mouvement de Genève. En 2006, "Morning Smile" remporte le prix Riccione TTV récompensant les "choix linguistiques radicaux dans l'oeuvre". En juillet, Zapruder présente "Daimon. The laceretor" au 'O6 Festival of Arts' de Santarcangelo, dont la seconde partie (présentée à la Galerie d'art contemporain de Trento) est également à voir avec des lunettes 3D.

SUITE
Fiction | hdcam | couleur | 4:50 | Italie | 2011

Experimenting in telepathy during the 1970s, American Parapsychologist Charles Honorton introduced what he termed the Ganzfeld (full field) Method. One of the two subjects involved would experience a state of sensory deprivation, induced by placing the two halves of a ping pong ball over the eyes, while indistinct (white) noise was played into the ears through headphones. Such condition would give the subject the necessary concentration to allow for the transmission of thoughts and images remotely, solely through telepathy, from the mind of the other subject, who would be situated in a `communicating` room. Suite is part of Zapruder`s project `SPELL`. Combinations of elements ?Spell? give rise to cryptic and solemn events whose expression is often uncertain, even suspected.

Since 2000, David Zamagni (b. 1971, Rimini) and Nadia Ranocchi (b. 1973, Rimini) have been working under the name Zapruder, in collaboration with Monaldo Moretti (b.1972, Recanati) and a rotating network of creative members. Since 2005, the group has been exploring the possibilities of digital, stereoscopic, 3-D cinematic techniques through short film, concerts and installations. zapruderie.com

COCK-CROW
Création numérique | | couleur et n&b | 40:50 | Italie | 2009

COCK-CROW (51 min Hd stereoscopic film 2009) Every age spawns and feeds its dragon. Unknown and obscure powers under which simpliest and more ordinary gestures lapse. Men whose bodily existence becomes the place for implacable struggles. Depths impossible to plumb and therefore admitted to participate in the holy economy. Cock-Crow materializes the dreams of a tiny little boy who is blameworthy for what he sees. It is the fall into an anterior world, a place of non-consolatory object-images, in search of the dragon to fight against. Cock-Crow it`s a rite of passage from childhood to manhood.

DAVID ZAMAGNI & NADIA RANOCCHI David Zamagni (Rimini, 1971) e Nadia Ranocchi (Rimini, 1973), directors and filmmakers, they live and work in Roncofreddo (FC). Together they are the authors of ZAPRUDER Filmmakersgroup` projects (David Zamagni, Nadia Ranocchi and Monaldo Moretti). Zapruder?s work is difficult to define within the traditional disciplinary boundaries and may perhaps be placed in the interstitial area between visual, performance and cinematographic art to give form to what the group defines as ?chamber cinema?, a sort of incarnated and tactile cinema, as well as a form of immaterial theatre. Zapruder?s production is characterized by an entirely artisanal approach that leads to a personal language in which the means is a fundamental and inexorable part. Since 2005 the group explores the possibilities of anaglyphy and stereoscopy through a series of short films and installations exploiting the techniques of 3-D cinema, conceiving and constructing both the equipments for the stereoscopic shooting and those used for watching.

Kitty came back home from on the island But kitty came on home without a name. To speak in tongues’ means to have the gift for mastering an unknown language while also being passed through by someone else’s word. In this telescopic and panoramic film of fac-simile et exempla, circularity at first, leads us right into the 360° view of a battle scene where the past is frozen within a tourist museum-device and the viewers with their camera are the actual subject. In sequence, concentric holes open up: a horse is performing a dance stepping backward; a fortune teller takes guesses on future circumstances and retrospective ones; the bodies of two gymnasts extend through their tools of artifice and grace, then we are taken on a ride across a Little Venice in miniature empty like a movie set. This spiral comes full circle in the silence of a lonely hunter on a Apennines tromp-l’oeil, a simulation park with fake birds and a mimetic wildermann: a carousel of the artificial where solitude is sound and nature is impermeable.  Proceeding by aphorisms, this film unfolds into a number of articulations and dimensions, all exceptionally true and false, like in an almanac of vision.

ZAPRUDERfilmmakersgroup is a collective formed by David Zamagni, Nadia Ranocchi and Monaldo Moretti. Founded in 2000 and based in the hills between Cesena and Rimini, the group is the author of film projects and art installations that have been shown in major international film and art festivals. Zapruder’s fervent production relies on a ferocious and comic analysis of the human condition whose tragic destiny becomes a metaphysical place where they explore the language of representation, forging a surreal and poetic portrait. The group film-projects are often flexible cinematic devices, which Zapruder defines as `Chamber Cinema` sort of incarnated environment and disembodied theatre, poised between visual and performing arts. Vision becomes experience of time, long shots prevail and draw a polycentric spatial scene that allow the eye to open on the enigma of vision rather than narrowing on the narrative anecdote. Zapruder’s projects are written and directed by David Zamagni and Nadia Ranocchi. David Zamagni ( b. 1971, Rimini) During his cinema studies in Bologna at DAMS, in 1994 he joins the theater company ‘Motus’ to later become icon actor of the performance `Catrame` (1996). In 1998, with Enrico Casagrande and Daniela Nicolò, is co-author of `Orlando Furioso` and in 1999 they are awarded the UBU prize as well as that of the magazine `Lo straniero`; in the same year he leaves Motus to pursue his interests in cinema. Nadia Ranocchi ( b. 1973, Rimini) After completing her studies in Psychology at the University of Bologna, in 1998 she starts working with David Zamagni on their movies and audiovisual projects. Monaldo Moretti (b. 1972, Recanati) joins them in 2000. He is David’s former classmate in highschool and later on over the DAMS years. As well as co-founder of the group Zapruder, he`s director of photography, actor and foley artist.

Morning Smile
Fiction expérimentale | 16mm | noir et blanc | 30:0 | Italie | 2005

MORNING SMILE est la première oeuvre de Zapruder sur la trilogie de George Bataille. Elle porte le parfum de l'oubli, comme suspendue dans le temps. Après avoir passé une nuit ensemble, Dirty et Troppman se retrouvent dans la chambre d'un hotel Savoy. Dirty est éméchée, elle peine à parler et dit n'importe quoi. L'alcool anésthésie son cerveau et attise ses peurs, "la peur corrige tout le monde" dit Dirty, avant de s'oublier dans ses vêtements. Troppman est témoin de la souffrance de la jeune femme. La chambre d'hôtel, "réservée" pour les amants, n'est pas un refuge douillet, il s'agit d'un lieu ouvert qui laisse entrer une autre histoire, une autre chambre : la chambre nuptiale pour laquelle avaient été commandés les quatre tableaux de Botticelli représentant une scène de chasse, dont la proie était une jeune fille. Les peintures évoquent la peur de la damnation. "Morning Smile" s'inspire de "Dirty" de George Bataille, et se rapproche de la huitième nouvelle du cinquième jour du Décaméron.


Le collectif de cinéastes ZAPRUDER a été crée par David Zamagni (né en 1971 à Rimini), Nadia Ranocchi (né en 1973 à Rimini) et Monaldo Moretti (né en 1972 à Recanati). Zapruder est établi à Roncofreddo (Forli-Cesena) en Italie. D.Zamagni et N.Ranocchi tournent en 1998 trois animations : "Tony the fireman", "Marylin and the K." et "Steak & Chips". En 1999, David Zamagni, Enrico Casagrande et Daniela Nicolo réalisent "O.F. ovvero Orlando Furioso impunemente eseguito da Motus" en collaboration avec la compagnie 'Motus', qui est récompensé au "Riccione TTV Performing Arts on screen Festival 2000". Suivent "H.O.L.Y.", signalé au Festival du film de Bellaria, et "Revolver V.M. 18", une installation vidéo réalisée en collaboration avec l'écrivain Isabella Santacroce et montrée à "Brescia Music Art 2000". En 2001, "J.G." est récompensé lors du festival Iceberg 2002. Parmi les autres réalisations du collectif : "Totentanz", "Nervi" (récompensé lors du Festival du film Bellaria 2001), "SPRING ROLL" (récompensé lors du 48ème Festival du court métrage d'Oberhausen, mention spéciale de l''Unimovie 2001' de Pescara et prix 'Fiaticorti Nuove Frontiere', "Doggy bag with Spring roll" (mention spéciale au "Premio D.A.M.S", 2002). En 2002, Zapruder collabore avec la compagnie "Fanny & Alexander" pour réaliser la vidéo de la performance "Requiem". Les deux troupes produisent et réalisent ensemble la vidéo "R for Redrum" (L.De Angelis), récompensée lors du "Riccione TTV festival performing arts on screen". A l'occasion de ce festival, Zapruder et Fanny & Alexander présentent l'installation vidéo sur trois écrans "speak memory speak". En 2003, ils fondent le projet nabokovien "ADA", associant six scènes de théâtre avec des images vidéo de Zapruder. Cette année sont présentées l'installation vidéo "VILLA VENUS" à l'université Monash (Prato), ainsi que la performance "Ardis I" lors du Festival Ravenna. Suit "Ardis II" en 2004, présenté lors du Kunsten Festival des arts de Bruxelles. En juin 2005 "Vaniada" est présentée lors du Festival des collines turinoises : il s'agit de la dernière performance nabokovienne de la compagnie Fanny & Alexander contenant des images vidéo signées Zapruder. En novembre, "Morning Smile" est présenté à la 11ème Biennale de l'image en mouvement de Genève. En 2006, "Morning Smile" remporte le prix Riccione TTV récompensant les "choix linguistiques radicaux dans l'oeuvre". En juillet, Zapruder présente "Daimon. The laceretor" au 'O6 Festival of Arts' de Santarcangelo, dont la seconde partie (présentée à la Galerie d'art contemporain de Trento) est également à voir avec des lunettes 3D.

Experimenting in telepathy during the 1970s, American Parapsychologist Charles Honorton introduced what he termed the Ganzfeld (full field) Method. One of the two subjects involved would experience a state of sensory deprivation, induced by placing the two halves of a ping pong ball over the eyes, while indistinct (white) noise was played into the ears through headphones. Such condition would give the subject the necessary concentration to allow for the transmission of thoughts and images remotely, solely through telepathy, from the mind of the other subject, who would be situated in a `communicating` room. Suite is part of Zapruder`s project `SPELL`. Combinations of elements ?Spell? give rise to cryptic and solemn events whose expression is often uncertain, even suspected.

Since 2000, David Zamagni (b. 1971, Rimini) and Nadia Ranocchi (b. 1973, Rimini) have been working under the name Zapruder, in collaboration with Monaldo Moretti (b.1972, Recanati) and a rotating network of creative members. Since 2005, the group has been exploring the possibilities of digital, stereoscopic, 3-D cinematic techniques through short film, concerts and installations. zapruderie.com

COCK-CROW
Création numérique | | couleur et n&b | 40:50 | Italie | 2009

COCK-CROW (51 min Hd stereoscopic film 2009) Every age spawns and feeds its dragon. Unknown and obscure powers under which simpliest and more ordinary gestures lapse. Men whose bodily existence becomes the place for implacable struggles. Depths impossible to plumb and therefore admitted to participate in the holy economy. Cock-Crow materializes the dreams of a tiny little boy who is blameworthy for what he sees. It is the fall into an anterior world, a place of non-consolatory object-images, in search of the dragon to fight against. Cock-Crow it`s a rite of passage from childhood to manhood.

DAVID ZAMAGNI & NADIA RANOCCHI David Zamagni (Rimini, 1971) e Nadia Ranocchi (Rimini, 1973), directors and filmmakers, they live and work in Roncofreddo (FC). Together they are the authors of ZAPRUDER Filmmakersgroup` projects (David Zamagni, Nadia Ranocchi and Monaldo Moretti). Zapruder?s work is difficult to define within the traditional disciplinary boundaries and may perhaps be placed in the interstitial area between visual, performance and cinematographic art to give form to what the group defines as ?chamber cinema?, a sort of incarnated and tactile cinema, as well as a form of immaterial theatre. Zapruder?s production is characterized by an entirely artisanal approach that leads to a personal language in which the means is a fundamental and inexorable part. Since 2005 the group explores the possibilities of anaglyphy and stereoscopy through a series of short films and installations exploiting the techniques of 3-D cinema, conceiving and constructing both the equipments for the stereoscopic shooting and those used for watching. A considerable part of Zapruder?s work has taken place within the context of Italian experimental theatre (collaboration with Motus, Fanny & Alexander and Romeo Castellucci/Societas Raffaello Sanzio). Works by the Zapruder Filmmakersgroup have been screened and have won awards in prestigious festivals, including Oberhausen Kurzfilmtage (D), Biennale de l`image en mouvement (Geneva, Switzerland), Graz Biennal on Media and Architecture (A), Transmediale (Berlin, D), TTV Performing Arts on Screen (Riccione, I), Netmage (Bologna, I), Rencontres Internationales Paris, Madrid, Berlin, Milanesiana (I), Santarcangelo Festival (I), Contemporanea Festival (Prato, I), Kunsten Festival des Arts (Brussels, B), Uovo Festival (Milan, I), Festival d`Avignon (F) Venice film festival (Venice Lido, I).
