January 2018, on tour

arsenal distribution @ International Filmfestival Rotterdam 2018



We are showing SET by Peter Miller (Germany 2016) and RIVERRED by Eva Heldmann (Germany 2011) in the DINAMO SCREENINGS on January 27. & 28. DINAMO is an international network of independent distributors of video art and experimental film. SET will be screened at the first DINAMO screening with the theme "Originals Screening“ on January 27: "For this found footage animated film I downloaded 10,000 photographs of the sunset, adjusted each one and arranged them in order, setting into motion a singular, colossal, collective sunset."(Peter Miller) On January 28 we show within the second DINAMO screening with the theme "Black and White Screenings" RIVERRED: "A girl is playing with her brother in the dark, holy waters of the Godavari River. I record the pair on video in spring, 2011 in Nashik, India. Orpheus and Heurtbise are crossing Hades in Jean Cocteau‘s black-and-white film Orphée from 1949. The materials clash in their difference from one another – the incompatibility of the styles fascinates me, like strangers standing side by side. Using various maneuvers, I place the materials in relation to one another. Formal similarities and parallels emerge, breaking open Orpheus’s poetic boundaries and extending the girl’s play and perspectives." (Eva Heldmann) Both films premiered at Forum Expanded.
