Dvalemodus
Doc. expérimental | dcp | couleur | 9:0 | Allemagne | 2017

In states of endless slumber, people endure the stifling dark. Powerful forces of nature rage relentlessly, sometimes soothing and sometimes menacing. The roar of the factory thunders on without halt, steadily eroding the surrounding landscape. Sluggish shapes seemingly abide the desolate waste around them. “These Mountains, these waves and our people, carry the darkness, lies and slowness within. For he who can`t take no more only laughter can bring salvation.”


Biography Bieke Depoorter was born in 1986 in Kortrijk, Belgium. She received a Master’s Degree in Photography at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Ghent in 2009. Her early colour photography work is the result of a unique approach: she captures the privacy of people whom she meets by chance and she gets to invite her into their homes. She captures indescribable, fragile and intense moments, always with kindness. Depoorter finalized her first short film ‘Dvalemodus’ in 2017, which she directed together with musician Mattias De Craene. The film talks about the everlasting darkness in a small village in the Northern Norway. When she was just 25 years old, she joined the Magnum agency, of which she became a nominee in 2012 and a full member in 2016. In 2017 she won the Prix Levallois. Biography Mattias De Craene was born 1989 in Belgium. He is a saxophone player and composer. His musical language is often described as unique and genre-defying. He is often linked with the free improvisational scene, and is also a founding member of several bands, such as “Nordmann”. In an everlasting quest of making abstract things more specific, he has recently started to combine music with visual arts.

Tutkimuksia draaman ekologiasta (Studies on the Ecology of Drama)
Fiction expérimentale | dcp | couleur | 26:26 | Finlande | 2017

SYNOPSIS VERSIONS SHORT SYNOPSIS (249 characters of max 255) The film uses the methods of presentation as a path to the company of other living beings. It expands upon the issues of ecological moving image narrative – the focus being on presentation, imaging and imagination in the context of the moving image. LONG SYNOPSIS (1193 characters of max 1200) The film uses the methods of presentation as a path to the company of other living beings. It expands upon the issues of ecological moving image narrative explored in her two previous works – the focus being on presentation, imaging and imagination in the context of the moving image. Film begins with a human actor walking into a forest park, where she introduces the themes of the work by conducting reduction exercises with the surroundings. Other performers include a bush, a juniper tree, a common swift, a horse, a brimstone butterfly, and a group of human acrobats. In her performance, the human actor-narrator makes use of the methods of the lecture-performance, thereby making room for other types of presentation. Making the ecology of drama visible requires the establishment of a reflexive distance and a representational dimension whereby the processes of technological recording and the expressive devices of the moving image can be made perceivable. The work employs the human body and its mimetic capacity as a tool to present the partial imaging between different creatures. - Becoming-alike, or imitation (mimicry), becomes an instrument for the representation of a living thing.


SHORT BIO Eija-Liisa Ahtila (1959, Hämeenlinna) is an artist and filmmaker. She works with moving image, making spatial multiple screen installations and short films. Her works have been exhibited in museums and biennales (eg.Tate Modern; MoMA NYC; JeP; Mori Art; Venice; Documenta, Kassel; Sao Paulo Biennale) and in the film festivals (eg. Berlin, Sundance, Venice) around the world. In 2011 she was appointed to the main jury of the Venice Film Festival and in 2013 she was the Chairwoman of the Jury in FIDMarseille. She studies at the KuVa Doctoral program. The starting point of her works and research is the eco-cinematic questions: how and with what kind of technology, drama and expressive devices can the image of our world be built in the present moment of ecological crisis.

El Brujo
Film expérimental | 4k | couleur | 17:29 | Pérou | 2016

El Brujo, qui signifie « le sorcier » en espagnol, est aussi le nom d’un site archéologique mochica. C’est sur cette plage de la côte péruvienne que Louidgi Beltrame a tourné une partie de son film. Le curandero (chamane) José Levis Picón Saguma y rejoue la séquence finale du film de François Truffaut Les Quatre Cents Coups (1959) où le jeune héros Antoine Doinel, interprété par Jean-Pierre Léaud, s’enfuit vers le rivage. Suite à une Mesa - cérémonie de guérison liée au cactus psychoactif San Pedro - José Levis Picón Saguma prend en charge la place laissée vacante dans le dispositif cinématographique par l’acteur alors souffrant, resté en France. Après réception à distance de cette opération magique, Jean-Pierre Léaud rétabli est filmé à la dérive dans les rues de Paris suivant une trajectoire superposant les souvenirs du tournage des Quatre Cents Coups à une histoire subjective du cinéma de la Nouvelle-Vague. A travers ces transpositions, l’artiste orchestre une série de déplacements, une migration des personnages, des motifs et des époques. Aux lignes géométriques du paysage péruvien fait de pyramides et d’excavations répond ainsi la structure du montage filmique composée de travellings et de plans panoramiques sur la musique modulaire et synthétique du morceau Triangle (1979) de Jacno.

Louidgi Beltrame est né à Marseille en 1971. Il est aujourd’hui basé à Paris et a étudié à la Villa Arson de Nice et à l’Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Marseille. De 1999 à 2001, il fut résident au Fresnoy, Studio National des Arts Contemporains à Tourcoing, puis au Pavillon, laboratoire de création du Palais de Tokyo. Depuis 2003, ses œuvres sont présentées dans de nombreuses expositions. Son travail a notamment fait l’objet d’expositions personnelles au Palais de Tokyo (Paris, 2015), au FRAC Basse-Normandie (Caen, 2015), au Kunstverein de Langenhagen (Allemagne, 2015), à la galerie Jousse Entreprise (Paris, 2008, 2012, 2014), à la Fondation d’entreprise Ricard (Paris, 2010), au centre d’art Les églises (Chelles, 2010), au musée d`Art moderne et contemporain de Strasbourg (2008) et au Jeu de Paume (Paris, 2006). En 2013, il a participé au programme de films conçu par Apichatpong Weerasethakul dans le cadre de la 11e Biennale de Sharjah ainsi qu’à de nombreux festivals dont le FID Marseille, Doclisboa et International Film Festival Rotterdam. Ses films ont fait l’objet de programmations spécifiques au Centre Georges Pompidou en conversation avec Pascal Beausse (Vidéo & Après, 2011) et au Louvre avec Catherine David (2013). Expositions collectives : notamment, Flatland, MRAC, Sérignan, 2016, Plagiar of Futuro, Hangar, Lisbonne, 2015, Michelangelo Antonioni, Cinémathèque Française, 2015, Double Jeu, Frac Centre, Orléans, 2014, Mutatis Mutandis, Secession, Vienne, 2012, Video, an Art History (1965-2010): A selection from the Centre Pompidou and the Singapore Art Museum Collections, 2011; Prisonniers du Soleil, Le Plateau, Paris, 2010.

Sweet Dreams Are Made of This
Vidéo | mp4 | couleur | 4:21 | Espagne | 2016

Sweet Dreams are made of this Carlos AIres 2016 The video shows two policemen wearing Spanish anti-riot uniforms, dancing a tango version of the famous Eurhythmics 80´s song in the luxurious and extremely decorated ballroom space of the XIX century palace Museum Cerralbo in Madrid. The fantastic lyric of the song “Sweet dreams are made of this” is the central motor of the piece. The tango version cove song has been arranged by the bandoneon player Fernando Girdini and recorded exclusively for the video. In its origins, tango was mainly a dance between two men. Tango was the result of the cultural mix of locals with African, Italian and Hispanic immigrants. It was originally forbidden by the church and rejected by high society, which resulted in its development in poor suburbs and working-class slums. The video reflects about the last years crisis, 15M movement, the violent riots, Cataluña independency, brutality of Spanish police and military forces and the recent antidemocratic Spanish law “Ley Mordaza” (the Gag Rule), becoming illegal and punished to take photos or videos of police forces or use of the police uniforms without the Government’s permission. Desire, power, decadence and frustration: they shoot horses, don´t they?
