8:30 PM Audience Questions & Reflections
 

East in the west in the eastpresents eight works by graduating filmmakers. Coming from eight different passport countries, all the filmmakers have recently worked within the cultural context of post-socialism and (new) capitalism. What unites them? They all subscribe to a documentarist gesture and they all welcome cultural distance. All films of this evening emerge from encounters with the anthropological Other.

The selection of works looks at the present-day, post-soviet cultural landscape via a documentarist, archival gesture. These films usually receive little attention beyond living room and university screenings. By allowing them to be shown in the public space of the Institute, we are giving an opportunity to show that Canon DSLR aesthetics are not the only parameter of the moving image culture produced by the post-1989 generation.

The films were produced at the University of Film and Theatre Arts (Budapest) and the LUCA School of Arts (Brussels). Six short etudes emerge from the hands of the international group of documentarists working with director Tamás Almási as Erasmus Mundus participants. These etudes show a snapshot of the Budapest experience, as perceived by the temporarily engaged filmmaker.

Under the Clouds and Fabric of Time bring another layer of meaning to play: the personal, implicit knowledge of ideological-political systems of life that collapsed in 1989. The films imply, however, that the systems remained encoded in the bodies of generations to come.

 

Free admission. The program will be held in English.
