New Works at ARTE Creative

Still from ONCE UPON A SIDEWALK

ONCE UPON A SIDEWALK by Gheith Al-Amine

Since last February, a selection of films from the arsenal distribution range has been available at ARTE Creative, an interactive platform that also encompasses experimental film and video work. Every month, a new arsenal distribution film is added to the channel, which is then available for streaming over a one-year period. Gheith Al-Amine’s ONCE UPON A SIDEWALK ist he latest addition to our channel. This video explores the representation of women as objects of desire and questions the medium of video itself by repeatedly manipulating its parameters. Geith Al-Amine’s works "T.S.T.L" and "King Lost His Tooth" were shown in the Forum Expanded programm of the 2012 Berlinale.

Since Febuary 2012 Lior Schamriz’ RETURN RETURN is available on the Arsenal’s Channel on ARTE Creative. Thorsten Fleisch’s KOSMOS, Shelly Silver's 5 QUESTIONS AND 9 LESSONS ABOUT CHINATOWN, Isabell Spengler's SYNCPOINT, Christine Noll Brinckmann’s DER FATER, Marie Losier’s TONY CONRAD DREAMINIMALIST, Phil Collin’s SOY MI MADRE, Keren Cytter’s DER SPIEGEL, Juliane Zelwies’ DIE AUSSTELLUNG, Florian Zeyfang's INTRODUCTION TO A SHORT HISTORY OF PHOTOGRAPHY, Meggie Schneider's OUR PRIDE AND GLORY, and Stephen Dwoskin's film ASCOLTA! are all still available for streaming. Further films and videos from the arsenal distribution range will be added over the next few months.
