Camila Mello, Mauro Espíndola, Ali Khodr - BLANK
Première | Sessions at 7.30pm - 9pm | Studio 8
"Blank is a clever filmic dispositive that deals with spectrality using the most spectral means of expression, cinema. It actually aims to defeat the myth of origins and its contemporary manifestations. It makes use of the specific resources of filmmaking, which is the manipulation of time, to talk about a sensitive issue: the disharmony between subjective experience of time and narratives of remembrance. Modern societies are built on metaphysics of the individual, and each person as an individual is supposed to get empowered using remembrance tools (such as archives...). But what happens when you don't recognize yourself in the tools of investigation of memory and of the past that are made available? Blank invites us to think about the complexity of memory and subjective experience of time, in an era satured with narratives and devices of remembrance". Michel Daccache
Base-Film is pleased to present BLANK, a film-process connected to the irrecoverable place of oblivion that had been performed through artistic residencies along the year with the collaboration of the artists and researchers Fernanda Albertoni, David Clark, Michel Daccache, Manuela Eichner, Fabiano Marques, Fabrizio Poltronieri and the special participation of Liuka Ona Körbes, Ana Carolina Leichter Matte and Gustavo Sanromán.
