Expanded Cinema

  • ´Expanded Cinema´, presenting 27 films, including short and feature, with very varied figures, invites the audience to observe a wide range of experimental styles and modes from legendary films to the newcomers´ ones in the Avant Garde Cinema. These films draw out the attention of audience, sharing the objectives to ask about the essence of cinema: Readers by James Benning, tenaciously observing the act of ´reading the books´ and asking what the act of watching by the observer means at same time, Streetscapes(dialogue) by Heinz Emigholz finding out the relation between cinema and architecture through the endless conversation, The Green Fog by Guy Maddin, Evan Johnson and Galen Johnson seeking the fresh inspiration through interpretation the Alfred Hitchcock´s classic Vertigo(1958), The Realm of Perfection asking about the interrelationship between cinema and sports, with searching for the properties of camera, Prototype that changes the images of nature disaster into visual design of SF film and let the audience experience the visual wonderment, Good Luck by Ben Russell continuing to move to different places and drawing the map of contemporary capitalism, Let the Summer Never Come Again creating original visions alike the painting with the images captured by the cellular phone, Once There was Brasilia, a low-budget SF film ignoring the limitations of the representation. Finally we expect the audience to pay attention to the short films that experiment the relation of the things unrelated such as Fantasy Sentences by Dane Komljen who directed All the Cities of the North(2016), Unrest, the third movement in a trilogy by Philippe Grandrieux, ?Strangely Ordinary This Devotion, Mountain Plain Mountain, Dark Wave, etc.
