PANORAMA SCREENING #2: SWEET HOME BARBARISM
Location: Filmtheater ‘t Hoogt
Home is much more than where you grew up or where you live. This screening consists of the romance and horror of homeliness, trippy early memories and visions of the future, and the speed with which roles can be reversed.
Clean Your Room – People Like Us (United Kingdom, 2011, 03:00 min)
Utilising as it does very recognisable source material, this is not so much intended as a bad dream, but more as a journey through the underworld of everyday human experience. With a humorous touch.
Meteor – Christoph Girardet & Matthias Müller (Germany, 2011, 14:52 min)
Nostalgic excerpts of fiction, fairytales and vintage science fiction from a child’s room to way out into the galaxy.
Ofaeddur ungi – Katrin Olafsdottir (Iceland, 2011, 10:08 min)
A familiar environment as the idyllic point of departure for an escape from reality.
N’Être – Olfa Ben Ali (France, 2012, 11:34 min)
A personal portrait of a place in which rigid, Modernist architecture and a poor reputation stand in marked contrast to the warm memories of growing up in a French banlieue.
Hypercrisis – Josef Dabernig (Austria, 2011, 17:00 min)
A micro society that emanates social, political and creative crisis. A melodramatic portrait of a former institute for Soviet artists with privileges. Its re-purposing hasn’t really worked out either.
Blood & Cinnamon – Steve Reinke, Jessie Mott (USA, 2010, 05:26 min)
Fully-fledged commentary on an inexplicable catch. The fear of a possible diabolic birth causes unrest in the animal community.
Rozmowa – Piotr Sulkowski (Poland, 2011, 16:30 min)
A complex long-distance relationship between two people both of whom have a home base they cannot leave.
