Newsreel 63 - The train of Shadows
Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur et n&b | 39'0'' | Slovénie | 2017
Newsreel 63 follows newsreel-related practices and tries to position and understand a particular image a shred of video taken on the once famous Belgrade - Ljubljana rail-line, where refugees now travel not in couchettes but between the trains wheels. Newsreel 63 drifts into a visual investigation of railways and explores its historical, social and political narrative. The essayistic and associative elements of Newsreel 63 link this historical narrative to our pursuit of happiness, the idea of voyage in the current social constellation, where our longing for happiness is all too often tied to the idea of travelling somewhere or indeed the need to secure the means for mere basic survival.
Nika Autor finished her studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Ljubljana (BA and MA) and finished her PhD in Practice at Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. Her practice is primarily based on experimental videos and documentary films, film essays, newsreels and spatial video and film installations. The focus of her work is a research of the invisibilities/ inaudibilities dealing with concealed topics of the forgotten past and the silenced present. Her work focuses on the production of particular images, specific constructions of collective memory as well as on personal/oral narratives and examines asylum and migration policies, workers rights and politics of memory. She is part of the collective Newsreel Front (Obzorniška Fronta), an informal collective of workers coming from the field of film theory and art practice.
