SHORTS 2: THE ONE WITH THE FLICKER
2646 N Milwaukee Ave
38 River RoadJosh Weissbach7 min., 2016, USA/SwitzerlandThe voice of a figureless character is heard. The figure of a voiceless character is seen. A sequence of estranged voicemails is framed by unidentified events. Fear resides in the gesture of a telling.
Unknown HoursCalum Walter12 min., 2016, USAUnknown Hours studies a precarious nightscape. An observer journeys down a main street in Chicago towards a neighborhood known for its nightlife. The moving image is slowed to reveal the intermittence of street lights and sports bar televisions. A camera peers into the moments between events.
Ocean Hill DriveLina Sieckmann and Miriam Gossing20 min., 2016, USA/Germany"Ocean Hill Drive" examines a rare phenomenon, the so-called‚ 'shadowflicker’, that occurs in a suburban area on the outskirts of Boston. As a result of an erroneously installed wind turbine, the flicker effect, which brings to mind structuralist experimental cinema, appears instead in documentary images showing the landscape and architecture of a Massachusetts coast town.
Luna E SanturJoshua Gen Solondz10 min., 2016, USA
‘‘A visually assaultive threnody for losses never fully revealed and composed for monstrous times, "Luna E Santur" mingles sex and death with the supernatural and subnaturalistic."-Colin Beckett
Sea With No NameEmi Linnakoski36 min., 2015, Finland/EstoniaDesert. Sand blowing in eyes, back bent down, limps heavy of waiting. Wallpapers reflecting the light beams from cars outside on the streets. Hands reaching warmth under the blanket or resting on thermostat.
When rejection and abandoning has beaten you repeatedly they sculpt themselves in human memory, all the way through your body.
Landscape in Tuula`s eyes is silent, days resemble one another, then suddenly a song blossoms in this desert, like a flower waking up at night. In that song she reveals herself to us. What kind of a prison has she built with only one feel - fear of abandoning?
