24th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
Heavy Eyes Remastered
Consistent manipulation of found footage showing people and faces in an urban landscape dissolved their movements into visual echoes. The melancholy remnants of the original film are subjected to the digital poetry of blurriness and the loss of meaning, gestures, and physical movements.
“Producing a film includes the process of creating copies. Duplication is built into the medium itself. The change in to new form creates a different experience, though nothing has changed in the content.” S. A. Fruhauf
Austrian filmmaker Siegfried A. Fruhauf (1976) was introduced to the cinematic avant-garde while studying industrial design. Since the late 1990s, he has created aesthetically precise structural and self-reflective works using found footage, photographs, and digital and analogue film. His films have regularly appeared at the Ji.hlava IDFF. In 2013, his film Exterior Extended (2013) was named best experimental documentary film.
