director: Borys Shylenko
original title: Bez nazvy
country: USSR
year: 1960
running time: 10 min.

synopsis

Children and a cat discover the adult world through all their senses, playfully exploring a library, seawater, an entire flat, and a park. To a playful musical soundtrack, the film comments on the world through a collage of newspaper headlines and magazine photographs, presented as analogous to a home movie.

biography

Ukrainian filmmaker Borys Shylenko (1938–2014) worked in the studio of Alexander Dovzhenko, first as a technical assistant and later as a director and cinematographer. Shylenkov’s historical films are among his most notable: There is Still Time (1987) and The Black Valley (1990) – stories of the Cossacks.

Vowels
This structuralist film translates Rimbaud’s famous sonnet onto the film screen, thus placing it within the context of cinema. Where Rimbaud associated vowels with colours, the film represents them using different forms of video manipulation or camerawork – for instance, the letter “I” is represented by a jump cut.

Myocardial Infarction
An award-winning film at the International Festival of Short Films in Oberhausen in 1968 uses artistic means to document the experience of a heart failure. The film’s rhythm does not work only with the dynamic editing and a disrupted shot composition, but also with sound effects and music illustrating the rapid heart rate of an ill heart. By irony of fate, the debut’s director Wojciech Wiszniewski died of a heart attack aged 34.

The First Photo of Me Ever Taken
A minute-long self-portrait shows an archival photograph of Milenko Jovanović as a child, relativizing the reliability of historical artefacts in relation to unreliable human memory. Using a flicker effect, the static photograph became animated in time. The author highlights the structural qualities of both these media, the permanence of photographs and the ability of film to capture movement, and their effect on the perception of what is portrayed.

There, There
A visually stunning static view of a colour-tinged landscape reflecting the inner dimensions of dreams, memories and visions. An emphasis on the internal mood is underscored by a minimalist acoustic soundtrack characterised with prolonged poetic tones.

Vird
Vird is a film based on the idea of “manual cutting on set” using only lights to make cuts in the video. The only post-production was the composition of a soundscape fitting to the movements and cutting the frame down to smaller frames that would play a fraction of a second later or sooner than the next small frame. Vird is the result of wanting to break up movement in time, effected by surrealism and the “bad” girls in Věra Chytilová’s Daisies, and using the new way of editing.

Ten Minutes Before the Flight of Icarus
An observational film that won the grand prize at the Oberhausen film festival; considered to be a manifesto of the post-Soviet generation of documentary filmmakers using the observation method. The film, without commentary, uses its immersive visual poetics to draw the viewer into the lives of ordinary people in the historical areas of Vilnius.

Boxing
Ion Grigorescu’s conceptual film depicts a boxing fight of the author with his own image in a double exposure. The fight takes place in nudity, outside the boxing ring, without audience and the possibility of freeing yourself. Isolation becomes not only the source of suffering but also of internal strength. In the course of the action, the image of the winning boxer fades and the loser becomes prominent.

Fluctuations
Fluctuation is a movement that is divided into four chapters 1. Thinking space, 2. Moving thoughts, 3. Dissolution, 4. Specks. I base the form of the moving image on Sonata No. 2 by Polish composer Frédéric Chopin (1810–1849). Fluctuation is not related in any other way to the Sonata. It was showed as a video installation on a single floating screen in a black space.

Game
A sophisticated game of cat and mouse in which the constantly moving camera is the hunter and the young woman wandering the streets of Ljubljana to the sounds of jazz music is the prey. The film spent fifty years hidden under the bed of one of the filmmakers and was first screened at a meeting of Slovenian amateur filmmakers.„All my films have certain message and only important thing for me is and was to catch a spirit of time.“ K. Godina
