SCRATCH DIALOGUES #8

This online program is conceived in the form of a dialogue within our collection, with the intention of exploring possible relationships of analogy, filiation or interaction between the films.

In this edition, read between the lines...


KORIEZDEKI
by Rodolphe Cobetto-Caravanes & Omar Sharits
2009 / Video / b&w / sound / 2'

"A Dadaist-inspired film where a piece of sound poetry is present in the image, where letters and words are arranged together to compose a visual and musical collage."


BREATHING
by Robert Breer
1963 / 16mm / b&w / sound / 5'

"Breer’s animation explores the theme and variation of the drawn line: a line in constant movement and transformation. With a very sketchy style, he demonstrates how a simple, abstract image can fill and satisfy the imagination of the film viewer."


HOUSE FIRE
by Micah Weber
2014 / HD / b&w / sound / 4' 31

"This project began out of a desire to express the grief experienced from the loss of a parent. While attempting to describe this grief through language — visual or otherwise — it became evident that some events are indescribable without losing the very agency one has in having experienced the loss in the first place."
