synopsis

A visual miniature made of a single image strip, evokes the process of wandering through the landscape through both captured images and through images made by motion of their individual parts, resourcefully putting in use optic features of film imprint in order to let the scenes disappear in the structure of the material by blurring and slurring their outlines.

“I build shutterless cameras to bypass sequential frame-by-frame recording and document reality using an uninterrupted flow of light. The world appears melted together in a single image shifting in time.” U. Petronin

biography

French visual artist and filmmaker Ugo Petronin (1985) lives and works in Rotterdam. Although he studied sociology and anthropology first, he ultimately graduated in film and visual art studies.

Soar
A digital miniature in which the form into which the image is deconstructed emphasizes the things we leave in our wake – trajectories of movement, actions, decisions, gestures. This guide of the traces we leave behind dissolves into a depiction of the things that remain; the simple visual approach raises the imperative of understanding the consequences of the movements of mind, body, and things. "Choreography of an imaginary journey

Pixel Jungle
This view of a city, its houses, the seashore, and orange groves – all of it transformed into colors and shapes – was created by digitally enlarging 35mm footage of Madrid in order to create abstract graphic patterns that were printed, like photograms, onto transparent strips and pasted directly onto 16mm film. Spanish filmmaker and photographer Klara Ravat (1986), lives and works in Berlin. Her films explore the interrelationship between memories and the present day, address the way in which archetypal patterns affect human behavior, and work with the concept of landscape as a painted canvas. Her installations (such as Connected Smells) explore the ability of smell to mediate hidden experiences and memories.“The grain of one image originates airy particles that impregnate our vision. The images become the smell of night at the coastal town...”

The Philosophy of Horror (Part I): Etymology
The first part of a seven-part adaptation of the influential 1990 book of the same name by American philosopher and art theorist Noël Carroll. In the spirit of cinematic philosophy (filmosophy), Lichter explores various aspects of the horror genre – in this part, primarily the position of the characters, the human bodies, and the types of gazes to which they are subjects – by directly manipulating the body of the film. “The Philosophy of Horror: A Symphony of Film Theory is an immersive meditation on genre theory, which aims to demonstrate the eternal beauty of Art Philosophy and Pop Culture’s interconnectedness.” B. Máté, P. Lichter

Proof of Memory
Visual memories collected during the first year after the filmmaker’s graduation from university, altered using computer graphics to create disconnected particles of overlapping scenes showing various forms of depression from burnout, relationship crises, and a lack of physical and mental strength."Feelings that are impossible to be expressed by words can be shown through a camera or a computer." Y. Kawata

I Was Here
The combination of static photographs taken with various exposure times creates a moving portrait of a place where the stone building has stood for centuries, but the people are just indistinct traces on the sidewalk in front of it. We see only those who stop long enough to leave their imprint on the short-term memory of the place. The flow of time-lapse images also records changes in the solid structure as the light gives shape to the architecture.

Árvore da Vida (Madeira)
From a green surface emerge the contours of a tree standing on the edge of a rainforest, the branches lightly swaying and the leaves slowly slicing traces of their movement into the endless plain. Even if in some places the surface of the image has healed, digital disintegration can cut off another piece, and this process does not cease until the tree dissolves into the uniform mist.

Time, why think about it?
The memories of old people at a senior care facility come to life in fragmentary recollections accompanied by photographs of them and their loved ones and the places and events they remember. The ephemeral nature of these memories is visualised by using painting to alter these images of the passing of time. Belgian artist Charlotte Dunker (1987) uses painting techniques in her films, and also experiments with light-sensitive materials. She works with silence as an opportunity for self-reflection and explores the changeable nature of truth in relation to cultural contexts. The Jihlava IDFF previously showed her film Jupiter Lolopop (2014), in which she used a mosaic of 3,564 paintings to bring to life microstories of everyday life.“This film was realized to gether with the residents of a retirement home through a series of workshops. It fo cuses on the notion of time through the use of family photographs.”

SHASHIN NO MA
The word 間 (ma) in Japanese expresses the awareness of interval / space, not in the traditional notion of a closed three-dimensional entity, but rather as form and non-form mediated by amplified senses. These are confronted by an experimental film that explores the notion that a film’s content is the cinematic equivalent of reality.   "SHASHIN NO MA, literally means MA(間) of photograph. It is an homage to my father, all the fathers who film their children and history of amateur cinema." T. Maruyama

Boat People
As essayistic meditation on mass movements of people since the Second World War, including today’s mass flight from war, the possibility of death and environmental catastrophe. Images of the natural elements and scenes taken from the films of, among others, Humphrey Jennings or Derek Jarman explore the relationship between the representation of movements and ideas. “Notes from a country gripped by sudden political insularity: Boat People explores the meaning of welcome and the age-old possibilities of hospitality.” S. Wood

tracked
An experimental film that combines black-and-white shots of a road with shots of bicycles, manipulated into abstract collages, supplemented by a musical backdrop that is as dynamic as video-tracks of the ride. By combining both, it creates an intense physicality that acts on the viewer’s senses. "With the very first sound, I decided where the video should go - to the limits of acceleration, the centrifugal force that is geometrically enclosed after a first release, unleashed and unlimited." S. Cho

Untitled, 1925, Part Three
“When I close my eyes, everything remains the same”, says the filmmaker at the start of her work, which records places in the Andes as she retraces the journey her Romanian-Jewish grandfather undertook in 1925 in order to acquire Peruvian citizenship, which allowed him to save his family from Europe twelve years later. “An atmospheric and meditative film. A journey that revives and confronts memory and reality. The film was shot on a 16mm high contrast film stock which has sadly been discontinued.” M. Piller
