23rd Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
JEAN LUC NANCY
A miniature inspired by the leading contemporary French philosopher. The fragility of examining the possibilities of uniqueness and subordination in relation to something different. Objects here do not function as symbols; a crystal pendulum and anonymous figures highlight the multitude of loopholes and fundamental non-discursiveness of expressing delicate subjectivities.
"The film is about the duality of one’s search for their own individuality versus the desire to belong." A. Zwirchmayr
Austrian artist Antoinette Zwirchmayr (1989) studied video art, Romance languages, photography, and film. She creates minimalist video installations, documentary essays, and short films, which work with an alienated depiction of the human body and which take on the form of personal testimonies. Her work often explores social issues.
