The Boy with a magic Horn
Art vidéo | dv | couleur | 16:0 | Croatie | 2007

"Un grand rêve allait être réalisé mais quelque chose se passa pendant le réveil." Pendant la période de transition, la Croatie abandonna un des plus gros projets qui allai être construit sur cet hémisphère, un hôpital universitaire qui allait occuper 250000m2. L'hôpital a été planifié dans la fin des années 70 et était en construction dans les années 80 mais jamais fini. De nos jours, ce hall vide, ces murs de béton, ce labyrinthe de pièces sans noms et la nature envahissant tout l'environnement peut lui donner l'allure d'une quelconque construction mais, le fait de savoir ce que cet endroit devrait être, transforme cette réalité en une expérience presque mélodramatique; être bloqué dans un lieu et à une époque, quelque part entre ce que c'était, ce que ça devrait être et ce que c'est. Une vision romantique de la transition nous amène à l'intérieur de l'architecture fantôme et nous participons au voyage a travers une intrigue Wagnérienne, où la fiction rentre dans la réalité, transformé et perdue dans un lieu où le héros arrive trop tard. Extrait des synopsis de Wagner, l'intrigue devient un jeu rêveur et hallucinogène auquel les personnages jouent pour décrire leur nouveau déplacement social et émotionnel vers un lieu qui existe quelque part entre l'espoir et l'oubli. Mais pourtant, il se dit que la corne magique a un tel effet que celui qui l'entend va croire presque tout.

Two young Ethiopians tell about their lifes as students of Addis Ababa University; they focus on the sharing of a small room in the dormitory and the reality of a multi-ethnic country like Ethiopia. The observing camera shows the dormitory, as it were a stage, consisting of bunk beds, built-in cupboards and a corridor. Eight young men share this narrow space, where they sleep, eat, study or pray. They are Christians or Muslims, communicate in one of the many local languages or help themselves with English in order to understand each other. What may look like a refugee camp allows us actually to gain an insight into a community of young people, who prepare their future in a promising African country.

The camera is invading an over-stuffed apartment, floating through an almost surreal material world. There is a presence of the real tenant, supposedly an old man, who we don?t get to see. Instead, a younger man in search of a place to rest is wandering about. The rooms reveal the standstill of a lonley person, who has separated himself from life and the outside world by pileing up consumer objects. A glance out of the window shows a formerly fancy boulevard in Brussels, ruled today by Moroccan traders and African immigrants.

Outside of Luxor the eye moves in a slow circle. People are standing in the desert, alone or in groups. Tourists descend from the sky in a large red balloon. The camera?s perspective corresponds to the gaze of a foreigner having a look around. A couple of details sail past, without for all that rendering the situation as a whole perceptible. The eye wanders on across the surface of the desert. Urban settlements come into view. An arrival is summed up in one long, slow pan, a touchdown on a strange planet, recounted from a horizontal perspective only gradually closing the gap between itself and its object.

Sinbad - new voyages
Vidéo | dv | couleur | 43:0 | Suisse | 2009

This project consists of a musical live-performance by Ahmad El-Sawy (oud/voice/electronics) with a video-projection by Christoph Oertli. Starting point is the legend of Sinbad and his journeys on the sea. What would Sinbad get to see if he?d be travelling nowadays? This interrogation should produce images and music, which juxtapose past realities and myths with the actual situation of the Arab World. The cooperation of the Egyptian musician and the Swiss video artist combines different medias and view points: Ahmad El-Sawy has transferred Arabic poems into music. Some of those texts can be read as comment about our times dispite the fact that they originate from past centuries. The writers talk about the loss of values and most importantly about the loss of the own culture. Christoph Oertli has shot video images during two longer stays in Egypt and compressed these images into a visual strand, which resembles a journey through different centuries: landscapes, urban scenes and ultramodern building complexes slowly drift past the camera. A young man embodies todays? Sinbad; occasionally he?s travelling within his own country, but he undertakes as well virtual journeys at his computer, since means and possibilities are missing for travelling abroad.

La vidéo se concentre sur les chemins parcourus dans la ville. Les chemins que chaque habitant doit effectuer, pour lui-même et seul parmi les autres. Dans la réalité quotidienne, cela constitue un "déplacement de masse" dense et permanent, pour que chacun puisse s'assurer un logement et un travail. On peut voir un jeune homme qui marche très lentement. Il prend neuf visages différents, et son cheminement s'étend sur toute une enfilade de rues et de quartiers du Caire. Tout autour de lui, du bruit et beaucoup d'autres gens. Puis il se retrouve soudain seul, mais continue, sans y prêter attention, à marcher lentement. Quelques personnages isolés qui croisent son chemin.

De nuit, un salon à l?ameublement précisément choisi. Aucune trace des habitants. Un jeune homme nu traverse l'espace. Il se couche sur un sofa, dépose un plat sur la table. Il agit comme un étranger qui se serait introduit dans la maison. Les meubles tremblent, apparaissent, disparaissent comme déplacés par une main invisible. Le rapport à l'intimité et à la proximité du corps de l'homme changent brusquement lorsque l'extérieur devient visible. Nous sommes face à une vitrine de magasin.

LA MULTITUD
Documentaire | hdcam | couleur | 60:0 | Argentine | 2012

In the margins of the city, two lots sharing coincidences are placed in a dialogue. They were both locations for entertainment built by different dictatorships: The Sport City of La Boca, and the Interama amusement park. Today both places are in ruins and their surroundings harbor settlements and shanty towns where thousands of families live, many of them migrants and in extreme poverty. Through a thorough investigation, the documental shows the transit of those characters as they frequently pass though these places, and it depicts the present day over the tracks history left on the urban landscape. The result is a Buenos Aires City seen from its ends with perplexity, beauty, emotion and a neutral eye. The film combines densities with an analytical storytelling that is yet deeply atmospheric and transforming through the reality it manages to capture.

Born in 1974, Martín M. Oesterheld is a visual artist with a scholarship from the UBA / CC Rojas Research Lab for Arts Parctices. His most recent work includes the documentary "La Multitud" (Crowd), the video shorts ?Tránsito? (Transit), and ?Para la Defensa? (To the defense) made together with Julián D?Angiolillo and premiered in the Tecnopolis Exhibition.

The Interpreter
Animation | hdv | couleur | 6:29 | Japon | Royaume-Uni | 2015

The Interpreter contains a vague narrative that follows the structure of original tarot card, Major Arcana, such as The fool’s journey throughout the rest of 21 scenes to acquire enlightenment towards the end. Okaku created her original Derbyshire tarot card during a residency in Derby, England (2015). Each card draws on the artist’s own insight of Derbyshire’s history and myths - spanning a myriad of symbolic imagery. The animation is revealing an intimate interpretation of stories between each card. As this work is titled ‘”The Interpreter”, it contains many metaphor expressions in order to query audience what is their own interpretation. It is similar to how people play with tarot card. It has the multitude of possible interpretations. Messages can be revealed depending on which combination of the cards they pick - the translation of the cards are distinct as to who is reading, where they are reading, when they are reading and what intention is being transmitted in the moment of the reading.

Noriko Okaku was educated at Chelsea College of Art and Design and the Royal College of Art, completing an MA (RCA) in Animation. She is a collage artist who borrows, adopts, copies and recycles existing images to explore the diverse avenues of perception.

Erwin Olaf Born in Hilversum in the Netherlands in 1959, Erwin Olaf lives and works in Amsterdam since the early 80`s. His current studio is situated in a former church hall. Mixing photojournalism with studio photography, Olaf emerged in the international art scene in 1988 when his series `Chessmen` was awarded the first prize in the Young European Photographer competition. This award was followed by an exhibition at the Ludwig Museum in Cologne, Germany. Since then Olaf has continued to explore issues of gender, sensuality, humor, despair and grace in each successive series. Printing his early work in documentary style black-and-white, he first gradually introduced color and then digital manipulation. There is great contrast between each series. Mature (1999): golden-hued portraits of elderly women in the poses of kittenish supermodels; Fashion Victims (2000): a lewd commentary on the consumerism of sex and designer labels; Royal Blood (2000): minimalist white-on-white portraits, depicting the vengeful nature of members of the aristocracy who have suffered unsavory deaths; Paradise (2001): picturing a dark and baroque underworld of gleeful clowning and lunacy; Separation (2003) portraying an ice cold and introverted family in a sterile living room. In his four most recent series Rain, Hope, Grief and Fall, Erwin Olaf returns to classic imagery with minimal computer retouching. Video and film offer new possibilities to explore. His first film Tadzio (1991, co-directed with painter F. Franciscus) was soon followed by comic videos for children`s television, short documentaries, music clips and commissions by the Dutch National Ballet. Recently Olaf has created autonomous video works like Separation, Rain and Grief, starring models who also appear in the accompanying photo series. In the films they play a different character, as though his moving images provide a parallel history to his color photographs. These short films have been selected for film festivals all over the world. Over the years many of Olaf`s works - from his unabashed nude portraiture and intense symbolism to the unflinching gaze in his blood-drenched images of staged violence - have provoked controversy. Not surprisingly, this ability to attract attention has seen his work embraced by the advertising world, resulting in commercials for Lavazza, BMW, Microsoft and Nintendo among many others. Lately Erwin is frequently shooting in commission for magazines such as The New York Times Magazine, The Sunday Times Magazine, Elle and Citizen K. In 1999 his worldwide campaign for Diesel Jeans won him the coveted Silver Lion at the Festival for Advertising in Cannes. He was awarded the same prize two years later for his imagery produced for Heineken. Among numerous other international art and media prizes, in 2006 he was awarded Photographer of the Year in the International Color Awards. In 2007 Kunstbeeld magazine chose him Artist of the Year of the Netherlands. Recently he received a Lucie Award for his entire oeuvre

La tristesse riche
Fiction expérimentale | hdcam | couleur | 10:30 | Pays-Bas | 2010

Erwin Olaf was born in 1959 in Hilversum, The Netherlands. Olaf has a passionate love affair with life, and enjoys to the full everything it has to offer. His oeuvre is a manifestation of his passion and of his genuine engagement with his subjects. Olaf has been professionally active for twenty-five years and in this period he has succeeded in evolving from a participating photographer to a director who creates his own reality. Olaf's pictures are filled with humor, imagination and exuberance, but they go much further than simple visual intrigue. His works deal with freedom, beauty, loneliness, and being different. He convinces his public in a shameless and versatile manner, questioning established norms. Olaf consistently expresses his own standpoints, fulminating against narrow-mindedness, smugness, and rigid norms, but not without humor, bravura and bite. An authentic Olaf is a blow to the head, ruthlessly direct, but simultaneously wrong footing the viewer and poking fun. One reviewer remarked that in Erwin Olaf's photographs everyone stares unwaveringly into the lens--thus looking straight into the photographer's big blue eyes, as it were. Olaf approaches the world openly and enthusiastically and this is also the way in which, in his work, he dares to enter the public debate. Olaf is a master in generating his own world, whether this be in autonomous photographic series or film projects. He is also hypercritical, nothing escapes him, so that pictures are created with a placement composed so meticulously that it is almost painful to examine. With these, Olaf manages to produce fictitious yet convincing images of bygone days, fairytales and dreams, populated by historical figures, elves, dwarves, lunatics, and god knows who.

Grief
Vidéo expérimentale | dv | couleur | 3:59 | Pays-Bas | 2007

Grief NL, 2007, 3`59? Semblables à du tonnerre, des bruits accompagne l'image d'une femme qui, renfermée sur elle-même, fixe par la fenêtre. Une voix radiophonique, partiellement intelligible, fait un rapport sur certain évènements, et une autre femme entre dans la pièce en hésitant. Aucune des deux femmes ne dit un mot; le silence persiste entre les deux. La pluie, la radio, la tension du visiteur, se maintiennent en haleine. Les coups de tonnerre interagissant avec la radio prennent tout à coup une sonorité menaçante et le public commence à suspecter une connection entre l'orage, les vagues messages se glissant dans la pièce et l'état de santé mentale de la femme qui attend qui reste physiquement inapprochable pour l'autre. Elle continue de tourner son dos à l'autre; elle cache ses larmes silencieuses. En une seule scène et avec des moyens minimes, "Grief" conjures une histoire entière de développement miséreux.

Olaf has been professionally active for twenty-five years and in this period he has succeeded in evolving from a participating photographer to a director who creates his own reality. Olaf's pictures are filled with humor, imagination and exuberance, but they go much further than simple visual intrigue. His works deal with freedom, beauty, loneliness, and being different. He convinces his public in a shameless and versatile manner, questioning established norms. Olaf consistently expresses his own standpoints, fulminating against narrow-mindedness, smugness, and rigid norms, but not without humor, bravura and bite. An authentic Olaf is a blow to the head, ruthlessly direct, but simultaneously wrong footing the viewer and poking fun. One reviewer remarked that in Erwin Olaf's photographs everyone stares unwaveringly into the lens--thus looking straight into the photographer's big blue eyes, as it were. Olaf approaches the world openly and enthusiastically and this is also the way in which, in his work, he dares to enter the public debate. Olaf is a master in generating his own world, whether this be in autonomous photographic series or film projects. He is also hypercritical, nothing escapes him, so that pictures are created with a placement composed so meticulously that it is almost painful to examine. With these, Olaf manages to produce fictitious yet convincing images of bygone days, fairytales and dreams, populated by historical figures, elves, dwarves, lunatics, and god knows who.

Kiltr@
Film expérimental | hdv | couleur | 24:54 | USA | Chili | 2012

Kltr@ is an emotive journey in search of alternate kinship approaches between people and street dogs. Through a series of interviews with artists, cultural institutions, and their companion species, as well as primary footage of dogs who live beyond the borders of domestic life in Santiago de Chile, we explore the co-evolutionary relationships between kiltr@s and ?humans?, looking for clues about how they help each other to survive. In its everyday use Kiltro is a term that codifies species and racial hybridity and that translates as mutt, mongrel, or mixed breed. Kiltro is also the most common term used to classify the roughly half a million ?homeless? or street dogs found across Chile. In this project we hope to resuscitate Kiltr@ as a decolonization term, that resists against colonial and modern notions of purity across nature, culture, race, ethnicity, class, gender and sexuality, and that reminds us of our co-constituted and co-evolutionary subjectivities. For the past decade, feminists, anarchists, and artists have been primary agents in rescuing kiltr@s and resisting against the militarized extermination policies that threaten their survival; here we follow a few of them.

Lissette Olivares and Cheto Castellano are the co-founders of Sin Kabeza Productions, a collective of activist researchers that work as a symbiotic team. Their name translates as ?without a head? and reflects the collaborative and non-individual aspect of their collective production. The work they do consists of transmedia storytelling, where they create hybrid cultures that illustrate their concerns. Told from a post-colonial, feminist and ecological perspective, these stories work as models for envisioning a world where political and cultural hierarchy, as well as rationality, are abandoned in favor of a new, creative capacity to respond to the complex environmental and cultural challenges facing our contemporary world.

Comfort
Vidéo expérimentale | dv | couleur | 1:13 | Pays-Bas | 2005

L'animation 'Comfort' nous éclaire sur la manière de travailler de Jacco Olivier. L'histoire qu'il a en tête au départ, peut évoluer en fonction des idées qui peuvent se dégager pendant le processus de création. De cette façon, une animation peut éventuellement se construire à partir de diférentes histoires. Les différentes intrigues sont reliées grâce à des images qui se font écho : de la queue rouge d'un Boeing à l'arrêt, au logo rouge de Vodafone, et de là à un téléphone qui sonne. l'animation semble également s'auto-examiner lorsque la caméra plonge en profondeur et retires les couches successive d'un tableau une par une, pour ensuite ressortir par la couche supérieure. On reprend le fil de l'histoire sans effort. Contrairement à ce que le titre suggère, ce qui prédomine dans ce travail est une atmosphère de peur et d'oppression.

Calling
Animation | dv | couleur | 1:9 | Pays-Bas | 2005

Dans cette animation des scènes d?horreur et des scènes de thriller typiques se succèdent : un corbeau, un téléphone qui sonne sans cesse, des escaliers qui craquent, une ombre passe en glissant, un rideau qui flotte dans le vent et des gens qui marchent dans la rue tels des zombies. Tous ces éléments semblent se retrouver dans une fin surréaliste. Une ombre bouge derrière la fenêtre d?une maison qui flotte. Est-ce que ce que nous avons vu plus tôt pouvait être la visualisation de ses pensées ? Ceci n?est probablement qu?une des diverses histoires possibles. Chaque spectateur peut construire une histoire différente grâce aux éléments disponibles.

Le film fut filmé en utilisant une camera digitale a haute vitesse depuis un métro arrivant dans une gare très fréquentée. Le résultat est un plan sans fin des personnes sur un quai passant au ralenti. Le mouvement tranquille de la caméra et le calme des gens dépeints donne de la place pour une chaîne de pensées et d'associations hypnotiques. Le quai semble avoir été transformé en scène sur laquelle les gestes quotidiens et simples des gens se changent en performance.

The film is inspired by the once huge and luxurious hotels in the former Eastern Bloc designed in the 1970s and 80s. In the meantime their glamour is considered out of date and most of the hotels have been shut down, renovated or demolished.

Colombia is a land of ghosts. Two siblings roam these mystical landscapes in search of their dead father`s spirit. Their journey takes them from Bogota to the Colombian jungle, through realms of thought and deep into their haunted dreams. Here they will find some answers and attract unexpected company.

Juanita Onzaga is a Colombian-belgian film director and cinematographer playing with hybrid forms between the fiction, the documentary and the experimental. Within her narrations she touches the importance of memory, death and imagination, creating tales that reflect different ways of perceiving reality within strong political contexts. We wander in dreams, jungles and cities surrounded by spirits. Marrying this way a sense of emptiness in realism in an intimate way with a quest for mysticism, where the invisible gives more answers and meanings than the physical world. Her short film The Jungle Knows You Better Than You Do won the International Jury prize for best short film generation 14plus at Berlin International Film Festival 2017, the highly acclaimed VAF Wildcard and other prizes, while being selected worldwide in festivals as San Sebastian, Sao Paulo, Reykjavik, Vilnius and Cartagena. She studied cinema in Brussels, obtaining a Bachelor in Direction of Photography at IAD and a Master in Film Direction at Sint-Lukas Brussel. She worked as a director and DOP for several short films, documentaries and video clips. Now she is currently developing her first feature film "The Landscapes That You Seek" at Torino Film Lab.
