Photofinish Figures

Paolo Gioli

With exhilirating rhythms and flashing sideways motion, the latest by celebrated Italian aritst Paolo Gioli is a 16mm, black and white ode to faces and the city. Il Finish delle Figure reminds one of Muybridge but relays a sense of the conteporary, sensory overload of living in a metropolis.

Peter Tscherkassky

Austrian master Peter Tscherkassky's latest epic is a sly comedy that mines the relationship between early cinema and the avant-garde by way of advertising. With references to Méliès, les Lumières, Cocteau and Fernand Léger, COMING ATTRACTIONS playfully explores cinema's subliminal possibilities.

official description

Completing the evening’s attractions is a selection from EYE Film Institute Netherlands’ Bits and Pieces project, which restores and compiles “anonymous, unidentified or otherwise interesting fragments,” saving them from oblivion. Far from the perpetually sounded epitaph that has long plagued the cinema, this programme demonstrates the countless discoveries within film history and the new creations which can emerge from it.
