Talk with Béla Tarr and Jacques Rancière

INTERVIEW

About the piece:

Vienna is the city with the highest quality of living in the world – this was confirmed yet again in 2018. But the city’s immaculate façade made of Habsburg splendour, Sacher torte and snow-white Lipizzaner horses is only half the story. Many inhabitants do not fit into this picture and are hidden from sight owing to poverty and social hierarchies. Béla Tarr’s Missing People makes them visible again. Tarr’s magnum opus, Sátántangó, is widely regarded as one of the most important works in film history. And according to his director colleague Gus Van Sant, the Hungarian comes closer to the actual rhythm of life than virtually any other filmmaker. This is also true for his new project, which is his first time directing after a long creative break. Using just a few shots, Tarr shows these invisible people in the kind of place to which they would normally have no access. This work, created in the intersection of film, installation and performance, will be presented exclusively during the Wiener Festwochen – at the filming location itself. While the visitors remain amongst themselves, only traces of the protagonists are left behind. A powerful plea for humanity.

Gonzalo Escobar Mora to attend The Robert Flaherty Film Seminar 2019

Gonzalo Escobar Mora has been invited to attend The 65th 2019 Robert Flaherty Film Seminar, to be held JUNE 15 – 21 at the COLGATE UNIVERSITY, HAMILTON, NY

ABOUT THE FLAHERTY

The Flaherty is a nonprofit media arts institution recognized as a leader in its support of the documentary and other independent film and video.

Festival Statement: We are artists in action. We combat demagogues who oppose our notions of freedom and justice. In this era of uncertainty, we rebel against the lies and navigate what to accept or reject, what to learn or unlearn. We find solidarity in small local communities, and together we act creatively, speak out, and make works that challenge the status quo.

At the 65th Robert Flaherty Seminar we unite as an international community of artists—thinkers, makers, and activists—all in action. We discover and experience moments of beauty, truth, anarchy and conflict through film, as well as painting, performance, photography, text, and sound. We encounter the craftsmanship of those who are not afraid to battle deep, ethical questions, and whose actions split form and convention wide open. With careful attention to the process of making—the construction of sensuous textures and mythical imagery, the patterning of resistance and repetition, and the uses of performative interventions and idiosyncratic storytelling—we learn how to create powerful moments of aesthetic and political liberation.

While inhabiting the everyday practice of making, doing, living, suffering and protesting as artists today, we take inspiration from the poetics of the human condition, and step into a new terrain. In discourse, thought, and experience, we come together as a community in action to bear witness and shape our future.

Labocine - Science/Art Digital Magazine

Emma Rozanski’s 2-channel video installation ‘A New Kind of Ray’ is screening in the May issue of LABOCINE, titled: Body Images. You can watch the film throughout May, along with other science/art films from around the globe.

Link to the current issue as a whole: https://www.labocine.com/film/2219

About the Issue: Our skin is a complex organ. It is a membrane, a thin dividing surface between our bodies and all that lies within us and the exterior world without, a protective container for the fluid memory of the seas we carry within us. It is also a direct interface between the two: it conveys tactile information to our nervous systems and identifying information to others around us. Thus it both partitions and connects. Though the skin is undeniably of vital importance, the ways in which it is important shift with social changes: the meanings attached to skin and physical attributes are not fixed. And where lies identity, then, within or on our surfaces? In the brain, the consciousness, or even the microbiome? The films in this issue seek out identity and body as they move back and forth across the barrier of the skin, from our sun-buffering melanocytes to our particular neurochemistries, visiting in the process the many other meanings invested in our bodies: desire and reproduction, health and disease, life and death, yoga class and beach.

About Labocine: Labocine is an Imagine Science Films initiative to extend film programming to a broader and more diverse audience. They have over 1,500 film titles from 200 countries for all ages brought to you by artists, scientists, filmmakers and educators.

BHFF PRESENTS: MARTA HERNAIZ PIDAL 11th April 2019

BHFF PRESENTS: MARTA HERNAIZ PIDAL

The BHFF / Bosnian-Herzegovinian Film Festival is proud to present a Q&A with Marta Hernaiz Pidal as part of the sixteenth annual festival! On Thursday, April 11, Hernaiz Pidal joins us following the 8:45pm screening of her film The Chaotic Life of Nada Kadić, a moving drama that seamlessly blurs fiction and documentary in chronicling the life of a single mother whose young child is diagnosed with autism. See the trailer here! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GKywSInsN9w

Marta Hernaiz Pidal is a Mexican filmmaker with a degree in film and television, and a master’s degree in fine arts with a specialty in film direction obtained at the film.factory school in Sarajevo, which was founded by the renowned Hungarian director Béla Tarr. In 2016, her short film Dobro was part of the official selection of Cannes Film Festival in the Cinefondátion section.

Tickets to The Chaotic Life of Nada Kadić and Q&A with Hernaiz Pidal are on sale now!
https://www.eventbrite.com/e/presentation-4-the-chaotic-lif…

In Hernaiz Pidal’s The Chaotic Life of Nada Kadić, Nada is a dedicated single mother, disaffected with her tumultuous domestic life yet unable to piece together a plan to change it. After Nada finds out her daughter is on the autistic spectrum, together they embark on a journey through the Balkans in search of peace with the past, and acceptance of new realities. On their long drive through the foggy, rainy countryside, and away from the chaos of home, perhaps they can form new bonds, and learn new ways to communicate with one another. The BHFF invites you to join us for this special presentation and Q&A with Hernaiz Pidal on Thursday, April 11, at 8:45pm!
