26th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
director: Andrzej Pawlowski
original title: Kineformy
running time: 7 min.
synopsisKineforms, which screened at Expo '58 in Brussels, was originally an improvised light performance staged at an experimental theatre as a survey of shapes created from light. Colours are lifted directly from object surfaces and liberated from their very character, materialising onto a black backdrop as nebulae, reflections, glares, and shadows.
biographyAndrzej Pawłowski (1925 - 1986) created his abstract films without a camera, using a projector that he constructed out of a spotlight, cellophane, paper, and a system of moving lenses. He also became famous as a photographer, particularly for his heliographs.
