• It's About Time

    It's About Time

    “I tell you a story I have never told anyone before.”

    With It’s About Time, once again Roger Deutsch revives his fictional alter-ego Roger to tell a story about the time he wanted to be a gentleman farmer in a ramshackle house deep in the mountains of West Virginia.

  • Flight Memory

    Flight Memory

    “They’ll always be there. And you can swim to them any time you need to.”

    With Flight Memory, French artist Noé Grenier focuses on false memories and mental dismantling. The project is entirely composed of black and white blow-ups of a 35mm trailer for Robert Schwentke’s movie Flightplan. What once was an advertisement for a Hollywood production is transformed, fragmented, deprived of its colors and given new rhythms and tones in order to bathe the viewer in a world of Markerian reminiscences.

  • T

    T

    Ignazio Fabio Mazzola’s education in both fine arts and architecture is reflected in his artistic practice: he uses moving images to make autobiographical pieces, portraits of artists and works about architectural projects. Like Leandro Varela, Mazzola proposes films and videos that challenge standard lengths, focusing on very short visual statements. Made in 2017, T presents details of the houses built in La Martella (near Matera, Italy) by architect Ludovico Quaroni and his collaborators in the 50s. In T the rationalist façades are shown by way of high-contrast abstract glimpses.

  • Scale Lente

    Scale Lente

    WARSHADFILM is a Milan-based duo composed of Tiziano Doria and Samira Guadagnuolo, who also run the Làbbash film lab. One of WARSHADFILM’s frequent practices consists in juxtaposing found footage sequences with original text compositions. Made in 2019, Scale Lente (Slow Stairs) pairs a hypnotic shot-counter-shot of two women (one of which is endlessly descending a flight of stairs) with the following poem: savvy as a feather, I run away from nothingness, I dismantle the beginning and redo the end. I breathe white air, eyes open, under the black earth.

  • La Señal Cósmica

    La Señal Cósmica

    Leandro Varela’s body of work is rooted in hand-drawn animation and incorporates traditional cameraless filmmaking practices. The result is a cinema made of minimal gestures and radical length choices (most of his films run under a minute). A conceptual piece with a slight hint of sci-fi, La Señal Cósmica (The Cosmic Signal) shows a series of messages encoded on film by puncturing and scratching the emulsion.

  • Durbaar

    Durbaar

    Durbaar (Gautam Valluri's fourth film) spreads its proposal of sounds and images like a peacock in courtship mode: from the sound-only crescendo introduction (where one might imagine the peacock’s long, still collapsed trail) to the explosion of colours of the miniature paintings sequence. In between these sequences: the obsessive contemplation of the lavish chandeliers from the court of the Last Nizam of Hyderabad.

  • maison Lorraine (en 9 cases)

    maison Lorraine (en 9 cases)

    With maison Lorraine, French filmmaker Ishrann Silgidjian presents nine of the sixty-three spaces of his ongoing film project in the form of a Goose game, where the act of exploring spaces is investigated and presented through various modalities and situations.

  • Tobacco Barns Light Studies

    Tobacco Barns Light Studies

    Short and silent documentary film, presented in an almost lavender-toned black and white; a study of the abstraction created by the light passing through the barns’ cracks.

  • S MMM

    S MMM

    The artistic practice of Italian artist Ignazio Fabio Mazzola is based on the creation of extremely short films, whose exhibition resists standardization by a loop projection: Mazzola's films need to appear and disappear quickly. His films can be divided in three bodies of work (that sometimes intersect): autobiographical films, artists' portraits and films on architecture. S MMM is the latest instalment in this latter body of work, where he interprets avant-garde architectural projects through a process of observation, synthesis and…

  • I Can't

    I Can't

    An angry, intimate, homage to American filmmaker Robert Todd, who passed away in 2018.

  • Valdediós

    Valdediós

    Alternating Super8 footage and digital stop motion animation with joy and playfulness, Elena Duque crafts a shaky – yet balanced – dimension where a village and the universe meet and collapse together, where even the Bach lute suite is shaky and doesn’t know if it is going to tumble down or fly even higher.

  • The Flame of the Spent Hour

    The Flame of the Spent Hour

    Increasingly prolific and far away from the autofiction schemes that made him famous (Dead People, Mario Makes a Movie, or even the recent It’s About Time), here’s Roger Deutsch’s The Flame of the Spent Hour, one of his darkest films, a found footage piece built as a sound crescendo, a nightmare marked by a sudden, spectral white page.
