ODYSSEY

by Sabine GROENEWEGEN
2018 / HD / color-b&w / sound / 1S / 71' 00

Undefined intelligences analyse an assemblage of signals they produce about an infected planet when a resistant matter comes and disturbs the flux of stories, time and space they are trying to understand. Interrogating coloniality and its rhetoric the film evokes questions about the stories we're told and our possibilities to disrupt them.

"Outstanding, innovative, ambitious and formally rigorous."
—Jury Doc Alliance Selection Award

“Complex and rewarding (...) pointing to cinema’s potential to render strange the act of seeing and to the fragility of truth as a highly mediated, constantly renegotiated construct.”
— Ela Bittencourt / Film Comment

"It is through a poetic way that what is found behind these images can find a place into the visible from which it has been excluded."
— Debordements Magazine

​"The winner of the section is Odyssey for the amazing re-orchestration of the archival sources, the original cinematic dispositif for narration, the cleverness of a critical/political analysis of the images, shifting from the past to the present and future."
— Paolo Simoni / Head of Jury Istanbul Experimental Film Festival
