Listening to the big clock (55’46)

« The earth turns, 
The moon turns
The plane, in the sky, turns 
The seabirds turn 
While I am wondering 
Listening to the big clock, 
The clock of time 
That marks the cadence 
Of the years » (ML)

FOCUS ON THE FILM SECTION

GIANMARCO DONAGGIO – MANIFESTARSI, 12:12, 2021 (ITALY)
watch in PPV

A hypothetical “cinema of matter”, is a process where the encounter with the world takes precedence over the need to represent it. A methodology influenced by the current of new materialism and informal art

PREMIERE

PREMIERE:

PREMIERE:
Lino Strangis – In the question of Hamlet, 3:51, 2022 (ITALY)

watch here in PPV

The atavistic and eternal question of Hamlet is embodied in this audiovisual flow (which is also a flow of consciousness) based on a process of metaphorical transformations applied to the iconic image of a man with a skull in his hand. The famous Shakespearean monologue echoes submerged in scenic writing, all-digital, mainly made up of a signifying abstraction in which the self and the other from oneself merge and move away.

PREMIERE:
ISOLATION – Cristina Ohlmer + Stefan Reisinger / art vs film – 17min, 2022 (GERMANY)

Watch in PPV

ISOLATION takes place in a space station. The couple living there is informed about the new world order. 
“DON’T FORGET: THE HIDDEN ROOM IS FORBIDDEN.
OFFENDERS WILL BE PROSECUTED BY CIVIL AND CRIMINAL LAW”

EXPERIMENTAL VIDEO

David Anthony Sant – Between here and there, 3:48, 2022 (AUSTRALIA)

Watch here in PPV

The movement of two sides of a digital pattern towards and apart from one another is synchronised with the opening and closing of automatic sliding doors. Images of the headlands of Australia’s Botany Bay and the adjoining South Pacific Ocean, Port Botany and Sydney International Airport runways, divide to disclose the forms of towering ship-to-shore cranes and stacked shipping containers. 

Lino Strangis – The Tower, 4:16, 2020 (Italy)

watch here in PPV

A short story, raw and simple, drawn almost as a child would do, which tells without words, of a moment, perhaps a dream, in which the younger generations get rid of the burden that would them to “inherit” a world (with all its systems of powers and propaganda) that for too long has been decaying and moving away from the idea of the common good. 

Thinkpink – ROAR – 21:20, 2019 (RUSSIA)

Watch here in PPV

ROAR (rus. “РОКОТ”) is a video installation about the process of searching for identity in moments of personal transformation. The project examines the boundaries of “male” and “female” in modern society, and self-acceptance through the internal and external nature.

Alessandra Arnò – 2050, 4:11, 2019 (ITALY)

Watch in PPV

Footage from the photographic series of Luca Locatelli “Hunger Solutions” – winner of the 2018 edition of The World Press Photo Contest /// Environment /// Stories.

A journey took on for the first time by the human eye through the robotic gaze. Technological evolution as seen by the machine arises as to the only solution for survival in the near future. 

Cristina Ohlmer + Stefan Reisinger / art vs film – 7 MOMENTS OF OBLIVION, 29:42, 2021 (GERMANY)

Watch in PPV

7 MOMENTS OF OBLIVION is an experimental film project of approx. 30 minutes in which cinematic know-how and artistic interpretation deal with questions of memory and visualization in a fluid, researching the concept of time:
The protagonist lives in a village in the Po Valley. We use this “end of the world” as a stage to counteract a (self-chosen) isolation in old age with the phenomenon of a transfigured memory.

Hesam Rahmani – Faces without Visages, 8:00, 2019 (IRAN)

Watch in PPV

How come a sombre silence drowns me and my memory?
How come the faces lose visage in this dark dungeon of memory?

FOCUS ON SCREENDANCE

Davide De Lillis, Julia Metzger-Traber – Silhouettes, 4:00, 2018

Watch in PPV

In this Video-poem eleven young residents of the Friendship Village in Vietnam who are living with disabilities caused by Agent Orange dance their way from waking to dreaming. As their movements grow with humour and vulnerability we are welcomed ever deeper into their magical world.

Davide De Lillis, Julia Metzger-Traber – Rhizophora – 16:00, 2015

Watch in PPV

It has been forty years since the Vietnam War. Yet, its toxic remnants are not fading. In a place called The Friendship Village outside Hanoi, live one hundred young people with disabilities they inherited from their parents’ and grandparents’ exposure to Agent Orange in the 1960s. In this Video-poem eleven of the village’s residents lead us through the whimsical experience of a day in their lives. We are welcomed ever deeper into their richly symbiotic world as the day progresses.

Davide De Lillis – Hey dude, 3:34, 2018

Watch in PPV

A self-portrait. A dance to relax into the uncertainty of being 32 years old and not knowing what’s going to come. Relaxing in both my masculinity and my femininity. Relaxing into the complexity of being a human being. Part of the project “Like a Man”.

THE SELECTION FROM SPACES:
CAPPA’S CURATORIAL PROJECT

Center for Archiving and Promotion of Performing Art – CAPPA (Italy)
THE CURATORIAL PROJECT

THE BODY IS CYCLICAL…

It is a book open to human history, which tells about mythology, popular culture and today’s dilemmas. It is the mirror of feelings that are always different and always the same in an endless cycle.

Noema Pasquali – The Inner Eyes of Tiresia, 12:03, 2019

Watch in PPV

The Inner Eyes of Tiresia (12’03 ”) – BODY Festival of Performing Arts, 2019
A fusion of Body Art and narration that brings to life the metamorphosis of the myth of Tiresias, blinded by the gods, on the artist’s body, who in return gave him the power of clairvoyance. 

Emanuela Barbi – Parata, 4min, 1999

Watch in PPV

Parade – CORPO Festival of Performing Arts, 2019
The artist recalls the figure of the Warrior of Capestrano, the androgynous figure of the ancient Piceno people, wearing a breastplate faithfully reproduced in crochet. In a circular dance on itself, the artist recalls the dervishes and the Abruzzese folk tradition, weaving a link between old and new, between popular and contemporary art.

Flavio Sciolè – RoseRosse, 13:52, 2009

Watch in PPV


Presented in 2009 in Futuroma and Artcevia, in RoseRosse the artist immolates himself to the ultimate sacrifice, tearing his body and voice apart. Devoured, explored, named red roses invade the scene, the artist penetrates them by eating them and suffering their thorns. A sacrificial body immolated to the Act.
