Filmmakers' Choice

MEINE FAMILIE UND ICH, 1997

Agents Provocateurs: artists, strategies, objects. The program is dedicated to filmmaking strategies which construct films as experimental situations. The artists both find and invent objects and tools to create work to test the real. Alongside the camera, these can be an object, a foreign being, or an imaginary point on a visual medium. The idea here is that of the agent provocateur, a silent form that provocatively involves the artist, the spectator, and the people and situations contained in the film in the confrontation with results of the cinematic experiment.
