synopsis

Fragments of a body chiseled from darkness carve out a study of a nude female figure, sensual at specific moments, and in places disappearing into digital darkness. A lyrical treatise on intimacy and secrecy and an implicit polemic with a voyeuristic gaze create a longing for constrained completeness.

"I dissect the perception and the mental state that arise while being watched, penetrated and examined and the experience of the viewer, involuntary being forced to follow the gaze of the camera." T. Kjellmark

 

biography

Swedish visual artist Tove Kjellmark (1977) experiments with film and various forms of gallery installations. In her conceptual works, she uses traditional media as well as new technologies, exploring their influence on the viewer’s perception. Often working in cooperation with scientists and neurologists, Kjellmark explores mechanisms of human thinking and existential questions of being with a focus on the human body and its relationship to the development of robots.

350 MYA
Traces of unrelenting wind and the edges of harsh light create tangible and illusory shapes within space. Patient observations reveal compositions of light and sand in the Tafilalt region of the Sahara Desert, which used to be the bottom of a prehistoric ocean, as hinted at by the subtle sound composition. Terra Jean Long (1983) lives in Toronto and teaches at the Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto (LIFT). Her films tell personal stories in a setting that mixes dream, fiction, and reality. She has shown her works at the Edinburgh International Film Festival and the International Documentary Festival Amsterdam, among other festivals.“The Tafilalt region in the Sahara Desert was once the Rheic Ocean. 350 MYA conjures the o cean’s presence in the landscape, deep time in the folds of space.”

Engram of Returning
Fragmentary images reflect the ability of the neural network to preserve an imprint of what we see (even if as a mere flash) and provide a strong visual experience from specific found motifs that dissolve into their constituent parts, while encouraging moments of intense introspection and leaving room for our imagination, all of it presented as a provocative dialogue with immediate memory. Daïchi Saïto hails from Japan but studied literature, Hindi, and Sanskrit in the USA. He first started working with film in Montreal, where he co-founded the Double Negative art group. He is an author of many short films and video installations. Jihlava IDFF screened his rees of Syntax, Leaves of Axis (2009).“My films d on’t talk about so cial or political issues, but instead it is important for me to think about the mode of filmmaking as having so cial and political implications.”

The Pioneer
A collage of early films by the first female director presents her meditations over the film image and dense storytelling, shows her feminist viewpoints, the ability to make a points and her attempt at moving cinematic expression forward. In this sensitively edited portrait, we also hear the voice of Alice Guy.The footage from Parisian Opera starts at the end. Alice Guy discusses meeting the Lumiére brothers, her enchantment with the cinematograph, and how she was allowed to make a film only if it wouldn’t interfere with her work as a typist for the Gaumont company.

Exhumation
Desire without its object is like an image made unrecognizable by cutting out its parts; by scratching away part of the visible image, the image becomes a hole sliced into a pained body, fumbling about for what is missing, seeking physical contact and tangible proof of co-existence.  ""Exhumation" is my interpretation of the reports of Dali's death mask recently. I worked to physically peel back layers of representation to reveal disintegrated memories of figures that once were." D. McIntyre

CAMERA (Notes on Film 10)
A meditation on surveillance, dramatized by a person having panic and anxiety attacks in a white room with no doors or windows. The filmmaker reflects on the omnipresence of seemingly inconspicuous observation. The impossibility of a hidden camera’s objectivity is emphasized by reactive changes in its angle of view when the person attacks it. Austrian filmmaker and curator Norbert Pfaffenbichler (1967) is a pioneer of video art and a founding member of the VIDOK art group. His works often combine electronic music and abstract projections. Pfaffenbichler was the curator of the important group exhibition Abstraction Now at the Künstlerhaus in Vienna (2003), which worked with computergenerated sounds. Previously at Jihlava IDFF, he showed his film Intermezzo (Notes on Film 4) (2012).„Camera is a short étude on the topic of the invisible camera. it is part of my ‘notes on film-series ’ which deals with different topics from the history and theory of film.”

When You Awake
A scary yet funny tale about the journey to collective unconsciousness via experiments with hypnosis through a collage of found footage from instructional, documentary, and fictional films, layered with themes of personal experiences and frustrations, reflections on social stereotypes and desires, and images of wild or strange animate and inanimate nature. Jay Rosenblatt (1955), American independent filmmaker and trained psychotherapist, is the creator of over thirty films in which he examines the nature and limits of the human psyche and emotions. He has received over a hundred various awards for his work. In addition to teaching, he also organizes the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival. His films I Just Wanted To Be Somebody (2006), Four Questions for a Rabbi (2008), and I Used to Be a Filmmaker (2003) have been screened at the Jihlava IDFF.“When You Awake was a pleasure to create, and hopefully that will come across to the audience. It was a nice departure for me since it is more playful than many of my films.”

The Sun Quartet, part 1: Sun Stone
The use traditional multiple exposure techniques combine with the search for formal similarities to create a lyrical work in which the outlines of rivers and plants merge together and vibrant colors alternate in a constant rhythm of overlapping and multiplication. "Colectivo Los Ingrávidos arises from the need to dismantle the audiovisual grammar that the aesthetic-television-cinematic corporativism has used to guarantee the diffusion of one audiovisual ideology."

Man in Motion, 2012
Inspired by the analysis of movement in the studies of Eadweard Muybridge and Etienne-Jules Marey, the filmmakers depict the movement of a person going upstairs – except that they use a mirror effect to give the images a new sense of time existing outside of reality, and they replace an analysis of motion with a construction of infinite reproduction.The original chronophotography enabled the depiction of the individual stages of motion through a series of photographs. In the 1870s, such photographs were taken using a flash exposure of a thousandth of a second.

Fields in Mist
Patiently persistent mist conceals trees in the Eden River valley in northwestern England in a restless image draws the viewer’s attention to the visible image field, while its frame emphasizes the border of the unseen in the phenomenological stillness of the implied landscape. John Woodman (1948) focuses on experimental film and video art, about which he has even written a number of books (Structure of Chance, In Search of the Sacred, Sequences). One of the primary themes of his work is landscape and how it is differently perceived in relation to time, season, and light. His work has been presented at many international festivals.“Fields in Mist, filmed through heavy fo g, is an investigation of light, duration, revelation, visual appearance and disappearance. The scene is gradually revealed and then obscured by mist presenting a reflexive and contemplative viewing experience.”

Latency Contemplation 3
The disappearance of flowing textures of fluid and rocky landscapes alternates with patterns set in a grid of homogenous horizontals in a simple lyricism of hypnotic image and sound compositions and views of unexpected rhythms in flowing montages. "My ongoing questioning of the oscillations between my internal visions and the outer world comes with its own intrinsic intuition and metamorphoses my perceptions." S. Cho

Garden Exercises
A tour of botanical gardens in Bilbao, Toronto and Quito, filmed on a haptic camera as part of a project for developing a camera that will record the things its owner touches. The filmmakers explore the diversity of visual identities at a time dominated by the combination of sight and sound. “The video is a part of the collaborative ‘Haptic/Visual Identities’ project investigating ‘haptic visuality’ through film via a digital DIY prototype. The work presents ‘macro images’ of a garden in a former colonial paradise.” A. Mergler

Domus
This portrait of architect Carlo Mollino looks at the vision of organizing space, buildings or sculptures. Contours and surfaces, as well as the absence present in crossed-out notes, crumpled sketches and the shapes and textures of material and scratched patters of houses, construct a rhythmic collage of expressions to the landscape. “By way of story, C. Mollino pledged himself to his craft and foreshadowed a brilliant lifetime of architecture. In telling this story, Domus configures its author’s own intentions, transposed from architecture and housed within cinema.” R. Vermette
