way of the godsLorenzo Gattorna10 min., 2016, China/Taiwan,/Japan,/USA"The mysterious stirs a reaction: an ah! This ah! is not an ah ha! or Eureka—that is, an exclamation of discovering an answer. The ah! response to mystery is more a dumbfounded recognition and appreciation of an inexplicable power or presence... For Shinto, though, the point is to accept the awesome as part of the world in which we live. To deny or try to eradicate the wondrous mystery is no less than to run away from home." – Shinto: The Way Home, Thomas P. Kasulis, 2004
As Without So WithinManuela de Laborde25 min., 2016, Mexico/United Kingdom/USAConceptually informed by the artist’s active filmgoing, AS WITHOUT SO WITHIN takes as its point of departure prop sculptures which are transformed both through hybrid techniques of framing, lighting, and superimposition and by being projected in an enclosed, silent architectural space. AS WITHOUT explores the possibility that the surfaces of things are entities worthy of their own depth for and in themselves, demanding to be seen and confronted as they exist.
Answer PrintMónica Savirón5 min., 2016, USA"The fading that devastates color films occurs in the dark. It is accelerated by high temperatures and, to a lesser extent, relative humidity. Dye fading is irreversible. Once the dye images have faded, the information lost cannot be recovered"—Image Permanence Institute

Fuddy DuddySiegfried A. Fruhauf5 min., 2017, Austria
“Fuddy Duddy” uses the motif of the grid to blow it to pieces. Being occupied with structural film, Fruhauf repeatedly draws "frame plans," using grid structures to precisely record the succession of individual images. This sometimes seems like a search for structures in an apparently chaotic world. The medium of film fulfills the need for orientation. So, then, it isn't merely a personal preference for a certain working method.
