前衛短片專輯 Avant Garde Shorts Programme

1h 16m 詩影像 Poetry in Motion 2022

《窗內窗外》
「我們的正窗,由裏面看也由外面看,於疫情禁足期間拍攝。」花園一隅,日夜起居,呆看窗景,忽然出神發現框中有框;是實在的框,也有電影的框,閃頻及三維虛擬,身歷其境。框在裁剪方塊空間,光影在裁製時光碎片,是星門的可能性,向新維度隱隱潛行。亞洲首映。

In and Out a Window
Overlooking a garden, Dianna Barrie and Richard Tuohy’s front window symbolises myriad opportunities for reframing, or perhaps a frantic desire for escape amid lockdown. A metronomic transition between outside and in blurs all distinction and evokes the variable natures of our living spaces. Asian Premiere.

《歐羅巴》
作者當年匆匆流亡,以致這部見證時代的前衛作品落入納粹手中,失落七十年如今重新修復發表,啟發自同名詩作,轉譯為時代拼貼及象徵意象,暴食暴走暴起暴跌,三十年代歐洲文明走到斷崖的狀態,竟與千禧後氣氛無縫契合,歐羅巴的美景與噩夢同台蠱惑人心。亞洲首映。

Europa
Believed lost to a Nazi raid of the Vitfer Film Laboratory in Paris during WWII, the first film from Polish avantgarde pioneers Stefan and Franciszka Themerson is now fully restored. Made in Warsaw in 1931, it offers a striking anti-fascist statement: an angular, foreboding vision of Europe on the brink. Asian Premiere.

《又見火車》
柴卡斯基對結構電影先鋒人物Kurt Kren 致敬之餘,這部「黑房電影」重勾起電影誕生時的動能迷思。從引擎卡車看出鬼魂魄馬上飛馳,火車未到站,火車大劫案在永續發生嗎?這是將軍號嗎?負片/溶疊/閃爍視覺,時空回越又進發,電影哪裏去,又哪裏來。

Train Again
In Peter Tscherkassky’s latest, cinema’s foundational locomotive is radically remixed into a virtuosic, accelerating motion. An “underground blockbuster” capturing the essence of a medium born out of brute technological imperatives – yet one of infinite potential bursting ever-forward.

《柏林火焰》
一段損壞不堪的易燃破舊菲林,閃出上世紀初柏林市中火警的殘餘逸像,火勢一秒24格展現是意態想像,水跡隨機侵蝕在放浪溶像。帕度邁亞不是去修復還原,而是在影像完全分解消失前,詮釋不生不滅的魅影,垂死寂滅的世情,也有永恆一剎的可能性。亞洲首映。

Berlin Feuer
Footage from an unknown 1940s fire captured on old nitrate film forms the basis of Pedro Maia’s latest, volatile celluloid manipulation. An enveloping, primordial landscape of fiery beauty and primordial ash. Asian Premiere.

《繁星幽域》
城市夜光點點串串,勾起未眠者夜話。男生說:播種光。他欲拆解城市。女生說:繁色低吟。她把城市感官身受。來自西班牙的柏天奴被東京沿河夜燈吸引,參考禪意風景畫之同時,遙思cyber punk 未來景觀,東京都夜語乘搭上杜哈絲對話節奏,潑弄人間水影,一刻燦若繁星。

The Sower of Stars (El Sembrador de Estrellas)
In Lois Patiño’s mesmerising, liquid collage, Tokyo Bay at night becomes an impossible constellation – a netherworld of luminescent windows, ships, lifts and signage that – coupled with an aphoristic narration that brings the viewer into a netherworld between life, death and the cosmos.
