Jareena Khan, Mohammad Shahi, Tazma Ansari

Garoto transcodificado a partir de fosfeno

Brasilien 2018, Farbe, 02:03 Min.
Regie, Drehbuch, Schnitt, Animation, Ton:
Rodrigo Faustini
Kamera: Lucas Reitano


Trapped in phosphene, raw documentary footage reveals its digital self, receding into its abstract infancy, a memory-image unspooled from its dependency on referents, affected by its own internal life. A computer sees without eyes, an algorithm imagines.

where i don’t meet you (side B)

Kanada 2019, S/W, 02:20 Min.
Regie, Ton: Charlotte Clermont


The concept of this film is to use the materiality of the film as a conductor of emotions. The objective is to create psychological associations and to activate a work on memory, by exposing
people to a series of figurative shots accompanied by a textual sequence, which are altered by chemical processes, in parallel with an experimental soundtrack.

Pfad der Tugend

Deutschland 2018, S/W, 02:01 Min.
Regie, Kamera, Schnitt, Ton: Vera Sebert


The classic design of signage in movies is the subject of this film. In this way, the black and white movie for instance is made up of closing titles. This, again, is reduced to a variety of acknowledgements which are consequently dedicated to one and the same person. It is the fictitious character of Prof. Dr. Jörg-Michael Brunkhorst.
