Oliwia TONTERI and Jerem TONTERI film a solitary character travelling, and by associating images and forms, they deploy the premises of a dream. Johanna DOMKE directs a travelling shot in a park, overlapping public and private spaces. The intrusive camera is like an omniscient eye which would go as far as to build reality in order to create fiction. Theodore TAGHOLM recreates movement from landscape photos. Ken JACOBS digitally revisits a film that he directed between 1964 and 1965, during the war in Vietnam. This film is just as much about time and history as it is about music and human relations. Nicolas LELIÈVRE, Renaud HERBIN and Anamaria FERNANDES directed this series of images, alternating the city of Aubusson with portraits of its inhabitants. Somewhere in between the post card, the slideshow and stereophotograph, these images lay out a sensitive portrait of the city. Crispin GURHOLT films the mise en scene of fixed instants, and leads our gaze to the rebuilding of a possible story. Axel ROESSLER explores a polaroïd photo album. Miska Michael KNAPEK films a café for 22 hours ; decomposes the sequence into spatiotemporal fragments and recomposes a new image, proposing a condensed period of filmed time. Seoungho CHO introduces vertical breaks into the horizontal lines of the golden landscape of Death Valley in California. Mahbubur RAHAMAN films the urban spaces and children in a city in Bangladesh.
