Friedlos (aka The Bandit Wolf-Man) HD DVCPRO Duration: 08:12 Synopsis: On the outskirts of the city, the townsfolk are gathered to expel the citizen and bandit Friedlos (aka The Bandit Wolf-Man). In a heathen display they perform the traditional heathen ritual of banishment. Finally Friedlos is tight to a horse, masked with a wolf?s head and send out of town. The banishment questions contemporary societies exclusion/inclusion relationship. The heathen aspect and the epic western soundtrack underlines this society?s regression towards rhetoric?s and ethics in comparison with those of the Wild West, witch hunts and tribal community fear. Friedlos (aka The Bandit Wolf-Man) is set in a world of no specific time generating a timescape that foresees the future as it dwells in the past.

Red Tape takes it outset in the Japanese horror film Kairo and in the mix between documentary and horror fiction it aims to distort the image of ghettoization.

Disastrous Dialogue
Vidéo | hdv | couleur | 10:0 | Danemark | 2011

Disastrous Dialogue focuses on the modern subject?s fixation on catastrophe images, here particularly the Hollywood-produced Catastrophe Cinema. Appropriating movie script dialogue from three major catastrophe movies, all written and directed by the German Director Roland Emmerich, Disastrous Dialogue sets out to challenge the mainstream viewpoint of disaster strategies. The script is translated into Arabic and performed by Egyptian actors, transforming the script through the voice of Hollywood cinema?s unrepresented. The film was shot immediately before the Egyptian Revolution and is dedicated to the actress Sally Zahran who perished during the brutal attacks on Egyptian demonstrators.

First Citizen (House of the Deaf Man)
Fiction expérimentale | hdv | couleur | 12:30 | Danemark | 2013

First Citizen (House of the Deaf Man) opens in a small room, where a therapist is in consultation with a young man. Through the use of hypnosis, the young man is experiencing a ma¬nipulation of his unconscious motivation. A feeling of debt is implanted in him through psycho-suggestion. First Citizen (House of the Deaf Man) proposes the idea that the indebt¬edness of the citizen is not only a causality of a flawed eco¬nomic system, but also the last relation that connects the citizen to a community. The only sure way to be part of any power relation is to enter the creditor/debtor relationship. Debt might hence be something that the citizen uncontiously desires - as the only means of experiencing community. First Citizen (House of the Deaf Man) paints an awry portrait of the indebted man with a little help from Goya’s painting ‘Duel with Cudgels’.

ANTI-OPTIMISTIC EARTHQUAKE SCENARIO 2015, HD Video, 18’45 During the 1755 Lisbon earthquake Voltaire and Ted Kaczynski meets in a cold war bunker outside Copenhagen to engage in reflections on the future of mankind in the face of disaster. Voltaire recites parts of his poem about the devastating earthquake that nearly completely destroyed Lisbon. With its tens of thousands of victims it became one of the deadliest in history and had a strong influence on the development of the philosophy of Enlightenment. Also known as the “Unabomber”, Ted Kaczynski conducted a series of terrorist attacks motivated by a fight against the disastrous effects of industrial society in the name of freedom and nature. He lived alone in a cabin in the Montana mountains without electricity for nearly 20 years. He now returns to his past in Mathematics working intensively on the theories of the Zeeman Disaster Machine, a small device build to visualize the unpredictable jumps of the Cusp Catastrophe, the sudden disturbance of a stable situation.
