Starting from Scratch: Filmscreenings

FiILMVERKSTADEN presents STRUCTURAL MATERIALITY (4 of 4)

Structural materiality focus on film as film and film as materiality. With different methods these films brings out how deconstruction of the orginal material becomes unexpected constellations and visual rebuilding for a 'new’ film structure. Certain filmmakers in the program 'dissecting’ the celluloid strip, – each single frame becoming a space of exploration; there are physical interactions, chemical interventions, processes of decomposition, where the tactility of the material is emphasized. The use of found footage or appropriation of the material of others that is then altered in different ways, recontextualized or transformed by manipulating the actual film strip – by scratching, chiseling, painting, or lifting off the emulsion an repositioning it on a clear film strip.

RHUS TYPHINA
ALEXANDRA MORALESOVÀ / GEORGE BAGDASAROV
2014 | 16MM | B&W | SOUND | 2’44
One of the series of labodoble experiment of the natural (organic) film developers. The structure of the film is based on the chemical formula of the RhusTyphina’s developer. The main protagonist of the film is a species of flowering plant in the family Anacardiaceae whose leaves and berries are mixed with tobacco and other herbs and smoked by Native American tribes. We tried to apply the properties of the Rhus Typhina in the photochemistry. The film captures the research, experiments, harvesting and preparation of the film developer in which latter original negative was developed. The nonlinear structure of the chemical formula as well as nonlinear research of the process are reflected in the order of the frames. No post-production except the sound. All editing work was made in camera before chemical development.

NOCTURNE
PHIL SOLOMON
1980 | 16MM | B&W | SILENT | 10’00
Nocturne strongly evokes one of Brakhage’s most exquisite films, Fire of Waters (1965). Its setting is a suburban neighborhood populated by kids at play and indistinct but ominous parental figures. A submerged narrative rehearses a type of young boy’s nighttime game in which a flashlight is wielded in a darkened room to produce effects of aerial combat and bombardment. A sense of hostility tinged with terror seeps into commonplace movements… Fantasy merges with nightmare, a war of dimly suppressed emotions rages beneath a veneer of household calm… In Nocturne, found footage is worked so subtly into the fabric of threat that its apperception comes as a shock ploughed from the unconscious. – Paul Arthur

THE LIVING ROCK
CAROLINE AVERY
1989 | 16MM | COLOR| SILENT | 9’55
A statement directed at the limbic mind about secondary forms of communication developed over time to compensate for the cultural denial of primary signals, creating a feed back loop as secondary responds to secondary, leaving the primary, the limbic behind. It is a cautionary tale.

EPHEMERAL SOLIDITY
STAN BRAKHAGE
1993 | 16MM | COLOR | SILENT | 5’00
This is one of the most elaborately edited of all the hand-painted films of late – a Haydenesque complexity of thematic variations on a totally visual (i.e., un-musical) theme.
This film is composed of 35mm hand-painted images reduced to 16mm film, single-frames, shots of two, three, four frames and, occasionally, slightly longer shots, all interspersed with a variety of calculated lengths of black leader which cause a flickering of abstract patterns in rhythmed darkness.

IMAGOGIE
FREDERIQUE DEVAUX
1981 | 16MM | COLOR | SOUND | 6’00
Imagogie (from words: image and demagogy) was made with 16mm and super8 inside 16mm. I wanted to explore the differents rythms of the film (small and bigger: 16mm). When the film was originally shown in the 80s in festivals, friends or other people in the audience would use walkie-talkies; they would speak to each other from one side of the room to the other, thus composing the sound of the film in vivo.
(Incorporations of Super-8 in 16mm. Chiseling work aimed at finding the initial plastic trace of the images that have been more or less erased by mechanical and / or chemical methods.)

CLEPSYDRA
PHIL SOLOMON
1992 | 16MM | B&W | SILENT | 14’00
Clepsydra is an ancient Greek water clock (literally, “to steal water”). This film envisions the strip of celluloid going vertically through a projector as a sprocketed waterfall (random events measured in discreet units of time), through which the silent dreams of a young girl can barely be heard under the din of an irresistable torrent, an irreversible torment.

“Solomon has evolved his technique so that in his latest work ('Clepsydra’ – 'waterclock’) the textures are constantly changing and are often appropriate to each figure in metaphoric interplay with each figure’s gestural (symbolic) movement. He has, thus, created consonance with thought as destroyer/creator – a Kali-like aesthetic 'There is a light at the end of the tunnel’ (Romantic); and it is a train coming straight at us: ... (and, to balance such, perhaps, with a touch of Zen) ... it is beautiful!” – Stan Brakhage

SUNDAY
CILE FONTAINE
1993 | 16MM | COLOR | SOUND | 9’00
Sunday mixes found and personal home movies with footage from a documentary film on the Seychelles Islands. It is about childhood memories of Sundays from morning to evening, and its rituals on the island of La Réunion where I grew up.

MADE MANIFEST
STAN BRAKHAGE
1880 | 16MM | COLOR | SILENT | 11’00
Every man’s work shall be made manifest, for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. -1 Corinthians 111-13
