CINZA
Vidéo | hdv | noir et blanc | 10:2 | Portugal | 2014

A visual and soundscaped short ambience voyage through an utopian, ghost-like city-state. In this mid twentieth century imaginary Lisbon, the power plants continue to produce energy, brand new subway network locomotives’ engines hum in standby, city lights and neon signs come alive each night and radio receivers spread Salazar’s [Portuguese Dictator] speeches - yet, nowhere is to be found the slightest human presence: there isn’t anyone to see and hear this newcomer modernity’s heartbeat. Only statues and facades inhabit the metropolis. "CINZA" is a short film made entirely from photographs that depict Lisbon during the dictatorial regime installed in Portugal from 1926 until 1974. Their authors were Mário Novais, Horácio Novais and Casimiro dos Santos Vinagre, and the photographs now belong to the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation Art Library Archive.

Micael was born in 1974 and graduated in ‘Directing’ at the Lisbon Theatre and Film School, in 2003, where he had already obtained his bachelor degree in ‘Editing’, in 1999. He is a partner at the production company Roughcut, where he’s been developing documental projects, television series, fiction and animation short films, being also responsible for the company’s post-production of several projects and works. He co-founded with David Gabriel, in 2012, the colective "Companhia do Inferno", which dedicates itself to the development and production of videoart projects and scriptwriting, under which he already directed several experimental videos. Since 2000, Micael works regularly as a freelance editor in advertising, television, fiction, documentary and music videos, and he worked with such directors as Bruno Ramos, João Nuno Pinto, Júlio Alves, Marco Martins, Miguel Coimbra, Miguel Seabra Lopes, Pedro Cláudio, Pedro Macedo, Pedro Sena Nunes, among others. He directed the television series "KmZero" which was aired on RTP2 (2007/2008), and co-directed the cultural magazine "Câmara Clara", which also aired on RTP2 (2008/2009). Recently, he co-directed the documental series “Tradições – Retalhos da Vida de um Povo”, produced by Roughcut and broadcasted by SIC Notícias (2013/2014). He produced, directed and animated the animation short film "Black Bug", which was one of the finalists of the ZON Awards Creativity in Multimedia (2011/2012). In collaboration with the performing arts, Micael directed the video for the theatre play “Old Times”, staged by Duval Pestana, for ONIMED, and directed the video for the performance “The Lusiads” by António Fonseca, which premiered at Guimarães – European Capital of Culture, in 2012, and was already presented in Lisbon, Coimbra, Almada and Brazil (2013/2014).

A group of men are waiting at the fringes of a coastal woodland for the journey to Europe. They are in a temporal and spatial limbo. A film is shot there with the men playing themselves. The landscape changes and where they are is no longer their motherland. The water is not transparent, not clear. Myths from the colonial past collide with present times, memory survives.

Keina Espiñeira (1983, Spain) is a scholar and filmmaker. Her artistic work is related to borders, landscapes and mythologies. She holds a Master`s degree in Direction and Production of Documentary Films, awarded by DOCMA. She has also worked as social researcher in California, Netherlands, Spain and Morocco.

Icarus
Doc. expérimental | dv | couleur | 12:0 | Israel | Espagne | 2004

Icarus / Tirtza Even Icarus fut abattu à Cartagène, en Espagne. La ville de Cartagène située sur la côte Méditerranéenne, a été un site de grandeur et de décadence (où alternaient manifestations de pouvoir et troubles politiques), site idéal pour un déploiement de cultures et de régimes. Romains, Byzantins et Ottoman, tout comme l'Église Épiscopsale et la République Espagnole s'y sont mêlés. Durant cette période la ville servait (entre de longs moments de décrépitude, d'épidémies, de guerres, de destruction puis de récupération) de port fructueux, de base militaire à valeur stratégique et de centre industriel et commercial riche en minerais, mines de plomb et d'argent. De nos jours, c'est une petite ville périphérique, habitée en grande partie par une communauté émigrante du Maroc, des travailleur d'un jour, elle aboute pour élargir le tourisme et l'attrait culturel de ses exhumations avec des restes d'un théâtre romain, et d'un amphithéâtre situé sous des arènes, et d'un grand nombre militaires, marines et sites culturels historiquement pointus , tout comme son Université renommée (qui réside dans un hôpital militaire rénové) -- une série de maisons sont démolies, sous surveillance, dans des sites par intermittence dispersés dans le centre de la ville, afin d'être ré-occupés dans un futur proche par des appartement-hotel de luxe. Au moment de la réalisation d'Icarus, les signes variés de pouvoir et d'entropie, de centralité et de marginalité, qu'elle soit militaire, politique, éthnique, économique, culturelle ou sociale, étaient exposés de façon éclectique dans l'architecture superposée et fracturée et dans l'arène humaine. La vidéo éditée pour Icarus, consiste en 12 min. de plan inversé- un impossible re-tour ou "torchon temporel" -- à travers des sites circulaires filmés à Cartagène, chacun cousu ensemble comme rapiécés, dans l'espace et le temps, du paysage urbain d'une ville. L'acte de tisser: des moments et des en- et hors- scènes , trahit des fissures inédites dans lesquelles différents personnages glissent, dans lesquelles ils convergent, ou disparaissent. Ainsi le paysage pêle et se déplie, se retournant sans vraiment arriver à ce moment intact d'aspiration et d'origine. L'oeuvre est formellement engagée dans le louvoiement de paysages fragmentés, utilisant les mouvements de la caméra comme moyen pour commenter - ou occuper et ainsi interrompre -- ces déterminants politiques et sociaux du paysage.


Tirtza Even, Bio Vidéaste en pratique et documentariste durant ces dix dernières années, Even a réalisée des travaux vidéo à la fois linéaires et intéractifs représentant des manifestations complexes peu évidentes et quelquefois des dynamiques socio-politique extrêmes, dans des endroits spécifiques (comme par exemple la Palestine, la Turquie,l' Espagne, les États Unis, et l'Allemagne parmi tant d'autres). Son oeuvre est parue au Musée d'Art Moderne de New York, à la Biennale de Whitney, Johannesburg ainsi que d'autres festivals, galeries, et musées aux États-Unis, en Israël, et en Europe, et a été acheté pour des collections permanentes par le Musée d'Art Moderne (New York), le Musée Juif (New York), Le Musée d'Israël (Jérusalem), pour ne citer qu'eux. Elle a été invitée et oratrice lors de nombreuses conférences et de programmes universitaires, dont "the Whitney Museum Seminar series", "the Digital Flaherty Seminar", "Art Pace annual panel", "ACM Multimedia"," The Performance Studies International conference" (PSI), "The Society for Literature, Science", and "the Arts conference" (SLSA) et autres.

emergency needs
Film expérimental | 16mm | couleur | 7:0 | USA | 2007

Commandé par le festival du film de Rotterdam de 2007 en hommage à l'oeuvre de Gus Van Sant, "Emergency Needs", réalisé par Jerome Everson, est une réinterprétation sous forme de pastiche d'un événement de l'histoire afro-américaine: les émeutes de Cleveland de 1968. En utilisant à la fois des séquences d'archives et des images originales, le film déconstruit la chaîne d'événements dans laquelle est pris le maire Carl Stokes. Assailli de questions par la presse locale et nationale, Stokes lutte pour garder la face. L'actrice qui incarne Stokes reproduit ses mots, sa façon de s'exprimer et ses gestes, dirigeant le film vers la fiction / reconstitution historique. Comme dans d'autres oeuvres d'Everson, les histoires de la diaspora africaine sont réexaminées de façon à révéler des stratégies et des rythmes de travail. Les séquences d'archives de la conférence de presse et des émeutes révèlent un homme engagé dans l'art politicien, quelque chose se rapprochant du jeu d'acteur. Les séquences originales avec l'actrice récréant la conférence de presse en split screen ajoutent une qualité répétitive, étrangement Warholienne, à l'oeuvre.

The video was shot at the "Seven Arches" hotel in East Jerusalem. Built in 1962 by the Royal Jordanian family, it hosted the first meeting of the P.L.O (Palestinian Liberation Organization) in 1964 and the first signing of the Palestinian charter. Currently managed by Israel`s ministry of justice - department of missing person`s property, its almost empty all-year. The hotel is kept in a state of near death where employees and tourists seem like ghosts. The video follows the hotel`s spaces and halls for 24 hours, focusing on the futile actions of the staff, expecting arrivals that never come.

A Free Moment
Film expérimental | 35mm | noir et blanc | 4:0 | Israel | 2011

" A Free Moment was made in Tell el-Full in Jerusalem. The site, which before 1967 was in Jordan, had been chosen as the location for King Hussein?s summer palace. The framework of the palace was constructed before the occupation of East Jerusalem after the Six Day War and it remains a kind of ruin to this day. Evron gained access to the site and eventually determined to make a film within the building with a camera which would simultaneously perform three operations: it would pan in a 360 degree circle; it would tilt in another 360 degree circle, and it would undertake these two motions while traveling along a dolly track on a north-south axis. In other words, the camera would exhaust the repertoire of its mechanical motions and ?see? everything possible around it. The film also would last four minutes, being the length of one 400 foot film cartridge. In order to make this work, Evron worked with technical advisors to construct a track within the shell of the abandoned 1967 palace, and to programme the motions of the camera. The resulting film begins simply enough, with a view over Jerusalem. It is a view from a summit, and one we associate with notions of control and ownership ? the kind of view that we could well expect a king to enjoy from a palace. We would not be surprised if this view were accompanied or followed by a panoramic movement, so that the landscape all around was surveyed, but as Evron?s camera begins its journey, a completely unfamiliar motion begins since the camera starts looking up and around while moving backwards. Soon enough it points towards the rough concrete blocks of the floor above it, which, because of the way they are filmed, seem to lose their material identity. It seems as if we are looking down at a strange landscape, rather than upwards at rough breezeblocks. A few seconds later, the initial viewpoint out to the city reappears, but this time it is inverted. As the camera continues its backwards journey, it begins to record the track on which it is moving and the floor beneath the track, another rough surface that appears like a desert or lunar surface. Eventually the motion stops with a return to the orientation with which the film opens. ‏Evron?s film relates to the late 1960s in more ways than the date of the palace: this was the moment of structuralist film, when artists such as Michael Snow, Anthony McCall, Paul Sharits and others began to interrogate the apparatus of cinema, looking at the nature of a zoom or panning movement, the conical shape of a projected film, and the material properties of celluloid. A Free Moment is deeply indebted to this legacy and throughout the film, however unworldly the motion of the camera, Evron emphasizes the construction that has to be in place for this motion to occur: the camera necessarily records the track along which it moves, and even the mechanism between it and the track. But what is much more interesting than its structuralist credentials is the way Evron deploys these formal ideas in order to re-imagine the site in which he works. Through its elaborate structures, the film produces another way of seeing and thinking about the space in which it is set. We are not invited to ?see? Jerusalem as the Jordanian king once hoped to see it, nor as many Israelis now hope to see it, panning around a ?united Jerusalem?, all of which is hoped will remain under Israeli control. Instead, we are invited to loosen our ways of looking at architecture and landscape, to turn our way of looking on its head. The invitation and utopianism of this work is the idea that this way of looking might mean thinking about the city and its future in completely new ways. " excerpt from a text by Mark Godfrey

`Tonight’s programme` toys with history to construct a new realm in between, merging Duke Ellington’s 1963 performance at Khuld hall in Baghdad with Saddam’s bloody coup in the same space 16 years later. Eyal creates a fictional space to provide a different history and a different world for those victims in the hall, a gate of annunaki through which the dead and lost can reclaim their place. “Don’t let anyone kill your daughter in the underworld. don’t let your precious metal be alloyed with the dirt of the underworld. don’t let your precious lapis lazuli be split there with the mason’s stone. don’t let your boxwood be chopped up there with the carpenter’s wood.” – Words by inana of the underworld, the land of no return.

Ali Eyal`s (b. Baghdad, 1994) work spans across different media. He holds an undergraduate degree from the Institute of Fine Arts in Baghdad. His work explores the complex relationships between community and politics using different media such as video, photography and painting, in order to examine social attitudes, particularly in the context of Baghdad and Iraq. Eyal has exhibited in several group shows in Baghdad, Egypt, Lebanon, USA, Greece, and Cuba, among others.
