Blastogenesis II
Blastogenese II

Deutschland 2017, S/W, 16 mm, 02:45 Min.
Regie; Kamera, Ton: Conrad Veit
Drehbuch, Programmierung, Schnitt: Conrad Veit, Charlotte Maria Kätzl
DarstellerInnen: Charlotte Maria Kätzl


Blastogenesis II fantasizes an evolution between science fiction images of the 1950s and images of queer and bizarre experimental films. A film that shows creatures between human and animal, born out of a plant seed pouch in a setting of the world’s end. It shows birthing, living feeding and dying of rare species like in nature documentaries but with the aspect of drag, which brings up the question about fetishism and experimental porn.

Happiness is a Prehistoric Suicide Machine

Österreich 2018; Farbe, 01:30 Min.
Regie: Vera Sebert


Happiness is a Prehistoric Suicide Machine shows a series of portraits. The stills are recorded by hand camera and change regularly. After several procedures they reveal a person hiding his/her face behind the portrait photograph of a laughing man. Every new picture is subtitled by another confession of present happiness. These words are put into the recorded person’s mouth. Steady repetition, increase of the sentences to superlative and the picture inside the picture make up a tight facade and expose their own media production.

Photograms are created onto 16mm film, using various false eyelashes, artificial hair and other textural objects. Brief bursts of light and patterns of intertwining lines create distinct rhythms, which evoke a blinking eye.
