SONNTAG BÜSCHERHÖFCHEN 2 (2014), Miriam Gossing & Lina Sieckmann

13 minutes, 16mm transferred to video

Synopsis:
A private house in the Bergisches Land on Sunday. Surrounded by unremarkable single-family homes, the sunlit estate with its yellow facade sits enthroned on the hill at dawn. The inside of the house reveals an aesthetic living environment, where everyday life is staged within an exotic scenery of individual fantasies. Domestic automation happens parallel to the residents’ daily routine and grants the place a life of its own.

Tôi Muốn Rao Lên (A Silent Shout) (2014), Đỗ Văn Hoàng

21 minutes video

Synopsis:
The movie is about traces, disintegration, and the feeling of being adrift. Two people are in love with each other through the tangible objects. The film opens with a break-in and several stolen objects. A sense of losing traces, filled with shadows of violence and unexpectedness is provoked, foreseeing a disintegrated future. In theanxious space remained an old cloth - a hidden, humble and sensitive trace. The story tells the journey of the old cloth with the Man – the Woman and the Anonym, challenging their sensitive and hard-to-identify existences.

Enterrement de nuit (2018), Laure Subreville

10 minutes, HD video

Synopsis:
The links that unite these men are complex and ambiguous. It’s a community that meets. These men are not blood brothers. They are ceremonial brothers. Links, other than friendship, exist beyond. They are performers, smugglers between different worlds. That of the living, the dead and the visions between the two. These men are here to perform a ritual they all know. They are focused and connected to this task. The ceremony time is a time stopped or maybe accelerated. It's a time without time. And men are all men at once. The ritual decenters man and multiplies him. He’s at the same time inside his body, the one who performs and out of his flesh, the one who’s the witness. The film features a burial ceremony in the forest. The group of men is accompanied by a mechanical shovel which is the main character of this fiction. It’s a sacred and monstrous animal that can, at the same time, be disturbing and docile. He helps the men who salute in return his great strength.
