Twelve Tales Told

Twelve Tales Told

Like so often in the cinema, at the start is a Hollywood studio's animated logo. Only in this case, it is twelve-fold, a visual stampede of entertainment giants. In the strictly timed montage, fairy-tale castle, globe, and roaring lion clash as interchangeable surfaces and lead all logo logic ad absurdum. Pleasurable subversion with bombastic visual appeal. Johann Lurf / Art film / Austria / 2014 / 4

CONFERENCE Notes on Film 05

In this grotesque found-footage-film close-ups of 65 actors playing Adolf Hitler in movies created between 1940 and today are combined in shot/countershot-manner. The soundtrack is produced by the Austrian composer Bernhard Lang. Norbert Pfaffenbichler / Art film / Austria / 2011 / 8

Exterior Extended

Interior and exterior space blur in a frenzied staccato layering of digital imagery, creating the film's distinctive sphere of subjective experience. The spectator penetrates the medium's imaginary interior – drawn in by the undertow of glimmering pictures. A subtle game of perception assembled from 36 individual frames. Siegfried A. Fruhauf / Art film / Austria / 2013 / 9

Dropping Furniture

The destruction of a habitat. The film is meant to symbolize the loss of existence. Paul Horn, Harald Hund / Artfilm / Austria / 2008 / 5

Light-colored lines overlap, form grids, condense and then resemble planes: Manuel Knapp used architecture software to create geometric patterns and shapes, white on a jet-black background, so that light seems to shine from within them. Gradually these shapes shift position in relation to one another, constantly forming different and increasingly complex spaces. Manuel Knapp / Art film / Austria / 2007 / 13

Carte Noire

Carte Noire

The film is based on a subjective, straight ahead shot, with a view of the asphalt strip of road including the middle stripe. First it disappears behind a knoll, then surfaces again and leads to the next hill. One seems to make out a sparse steppe landscape on the sides, a gently rising mountain on the horizon. Michaela Grill / Art film / Austria / 2014 / 2

Elements

Elements

Space, impregnable landscapes and uncertain horizons. The motifs, taken from the website Alaska Weather Camera Program, are small airfields in Alaska and the weather conditions there. Time lapse and collage make the functional data disappear. In the same way the concrete objects like cars and planes disappear. Dariusz Kowalski / Documentary / Austria / 2006 / 8

Workers leaving the factory (again)

Die Arbeiterinnen verlassen die Fabrik

Workers leaving the factory (again)

Based on the film Lumière's Workers Leaving the Factory, we see a group of workers walk down the dark, flickering hallway of a factory. By these scenes the weirdness of the space and the menacing quality of a mass of people who could form a resistance movement becomes increasingly evident. Katharina Gruzei / Art film / Austria / 2012 / 11

Achill

Achill

A woman steps out of her world to meet a man. The encounter turns out to be disenchanting; in the end, the woman retreats again. She animates films. The film that she is animating at the moment is about this encounter, and how clarity and blurriness are mutually exclusionary states of awareness. Gudrun Krebitz / Art film / Austria / 2012 / 9

brRRMMMWHEee II

Fast and furious electronic pop at its best. Here fragments of sounds and images are captured with analogue methods only. They are joined by micro-sounds generated by individual machines, which are linked to the recurrent images and function in a way similar to musical riffs. Billy Roisz / Art film / Austria / 2010 / 5
