26th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
Baroque Femina (Nr.7-11)
director: Péter Lichter
original title: Barokk Femina (Nr.7-11)
running time: 16 min.
Documentary footage, Hollywood cinema and video games collide, overlap and submerge into each other in a Dadaist collage inspired by the poetry of Hungarian poet Mário Z. Nemes. The hypermedia nature of the present is emphasised by fragments that are free of a clear narrative backbone.
Hungarian experimental filmmaker and film theorist Péter Lichter (1984) studied film history and theory at the University of Budapest. His found footage abstract films and lyrical documentaries have been screened at festivals in Berlin, Rotterdam and Jihlava (most recently The Philosophy of Horror (Part I): Etymology, 2019). He is also the author of several different film publications.
