FOCUS ON LIGHT CONE AT FRACTO FESTIVAL

The Fracto festival is organising a focus on the 40th anniversary of Light Cone and on the filmography of Emmanuel Lefrant, director of Light Cone. The festival invites audiences to immerse themselves in 3 days of film screenings, talks and performances, taking place between the 27th and the 29th of May 2022 at Kunsthaus ACUD, in Berlin.

This year, Fracto will present forty-one films curated into six programs, along with two film performances and a workshop. The Focus session, curated by Federico Rossin, will present the complete filmography of Paris-based filmmaker Emmanuel Lefrant, along with a homage to the 40th anniversary of Light Cone, in a two-night all-analog screening. Fracto will also offer a workshop on experimental film archive practice, held by Emmanuel Lefrant in conversation with Federico Rossin and aimed especially at young artists and the next generation of programmers interested in experimental film production and the management of film archives.

FOCUS LIGHT CONE 40TH ANNIVERSARY - PART 1

Saturday May 28, 2022, 20:00


The material basis of the cinema-machine: the film strip, the photochemical emulsion, the mechanics of sliding of the camera and the projection; the perceptual transformation from still image into cinematographic movement. A micro-history of cinema as an ironic and affectionate tribute to the work of the historical names of Light Cone. (F.R)

FOCUS EMMANUEL LEFRANT

Saturday May 28, 2022, 22:00


Going through Emmanuel Lefrant's work chronologically is like visiting a natural history museum: from the prebiotic soup photographed with a microscope, to the stars visible only through a telescope. We pass through a form of paroxysmal realism, which acts as an instrument of criticism of every naturalistic documentary record. A photochemical revelation of the "real", in which abstraction and documentation are both the products of a form of Platonic research into the essence of things. (F.R)

FOCUS LIGHT CONE 40TH ANNIVERSARY - PART 2

Sunday May 29, 2022, 20:30


From the sabotage of cinematic narrative to the liberation of the spectator: the resistance of experimental film to tell stories and the attempt to unveil its underlying ideology are liberated through increasingly open forms of visionary mysticism, in which the ecstasy of filmic matter is reflected in the phenomenological adventure of crossing the world.
