Program introduced by Erwin van ‘t Hart (International Film Festival of Rotterdam and freelance programmer)
Zen for film, a retreat in the cinema. Complex film structures leading to a coherent visual experience, striving for simplicity and ultimately: nothingness.
Films by Nicholas Brooks, Ivan Ladislav GALETA, Fred Worden, Takahiko Iimura and Paul Sharits will fill the space. An invitation to sit and contemplate.
How to prepare for a choreographic etude for unusual objects, a symmetrical film concept with two distinct centers, a celestial space filled with spherical light flares, a balanced superimposition of natural and rectangular form or a complex narrative of solid color harmonies? A quote by Arata Isozaki from the text of the film Ma: Space/Time from the Garden of Ryoan-ji will lead the way.
Perceive not the objects
but the distance
not the sounds
but the pauses
they leave unfilled
