This month, Gusztáv Hámos and Katja Pratschke present photo-films that examine memory and time and make us think of cinema. In LA JETÉE (Chris Marker, F 1962) the survivors of a nuclear war conduct time travel experiments with a prisoner. By remembering a particularly strong mental image, the face of a woman, the man manages to travel back in time and meet her. In (NOSTALGIA) (Hollis Frampton, USA 1971) a voice describes 13 photos. After a while, the pictures are burnt and transformed to ashes. Commentary and images are shifted tectonically. In FIASKO (Janet Riedel, K. Pratschke, G. Hámos, D 2010) Steinig, a survivor of Auschwitz, arrives in a hauntingly strange but also strangely familiar place, experiences déja-vu and gets caught in the maelstrom of a convoluted system (that of Stalinist Hungary). The film is told through split screen photography. (March 20, 7 pm).
