PROGRAM

Åsa Ersmark: LUNATIC
5:41 min, 2012, stereo, color, 16:9, HD

The video work developed as the artist began photographing the lunar cycle from her balcony. Ersmark suggests a return to a natural way of experiencing time, while also exploring something completely unnatural. Music by Simon Mullan and Theodore Trottner.

Dan Lageryd: A/B
5:11 min, 2012, stereo, color, 16:9, HD

A/B shows a seventeen floors passage down a narrow staircase, followed by an ascent up the same stairs. The staircase depicted is an isolated space, illuminated only by artificial light and with fireproof steel doors on every other landing. An emergency exit empty of personal belongings, the setting for the video does not so much indicate a place as it does a mere form. A form which, at the same time as providing the film's subject, outlines its choreography.

Lisa Jeannin & Rolf Schuurmans: LE ROND UNIVERSEL
9:31 min, 2012, stereo, color, 16:9, HD, French language with English subtitles

In "Le Rond Universel," Lisa Jeannin and Rolf Schuurmans show us how the veiled and the lucid can exist within each other. The scientific wish to understand and structure the world becomes intertwined with the mystical as modern science sometimes seems to propel towards the occult.

Lina Selander: ANTEROOM OF THE REAL
14:16 min, 2010-2011, color, 16:9, HD

The film takes its starting point in the deserted town of Pripyat, located within the zone of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. A pair of hands flip slowly through a pile of photographs: images of a model of reactor 4, buildings in Pripyat, books in deserted offices, empty rooms, trashed interiors, pictures of a TV monitor showing a documentary about Chernobyl, etc. As the timelines of the still and moving images cross, the film raises questions about what an editing room is and can be, and about narrativity, time and images.

Jonathan Lewald: RODNAD
6:12 min, 2012, stereo, color, 16:9, HD

A young boy appears on an island, gazing out towards the open water. Through the boy´s cheek we are transported into a room, an inner room where we meet the young boy´s gaze. The boy blushes, and sequentially the walls around him turn red. The boy is surrounded by his emotion in a claustrophic aura, but by controlling his gaze, his feelings can make the blushing go away. The film Blushing (Rodnad) concludes a triologi; Grandmother´s Eye, Sacrament and Blushing.

Ann-Sofi Sidén & Jonathan Bepler: CURTAIN CALLERS
19:28 min, 2011, surround 5.1, color, 16:9, HD

Curtain Callers examines the institution of contemporary theatre. The film is about the moment when fiction is created during a performance, and about the preparations at the Royal Theatre in Stockholm. The interplay between the construction and dissolution of fiction among actors and audience raises the question of where the boundary between fiction and reality lies.

Length of program ca 62 min

Om filmerna

A Forest within a Forest by AUJIK (Stefan Larsson)
2010, 5 min, Colour, Stereo, Japanese, English subtitles, 16:9, HD

A guide named Nashi narrates the audience journey in an uncanny forest. Which are the creatures that live there, living beings or robots? Nashi states that everything is animated, and that even the things we consider synthetic and artificial are as sacred as plants and stones. She criticizes nature for its inability to develop and praises technology for its flexibility and proclaims that nature should adapt to technology in order to survive.

The Big Scene by Tova Mozard (Original title: Stora scenen)
2011, 31 min, colour, stereo, 16:9, Swedish, English subtitles, HD

The artist Tova Mozard sits with her mother and grandmother on the main stage at the Royal Dramatic Theater in Stockholm. As if in a therapy session, the three unveil a series of powerful stories about what is inevitably and unintentionally passed on from generation to generation, between mother and daughter. Mozard experiments with privacy in a theatrical surrounding and stages a situation in wich reality is unavoidable.
