From Seeing to Acting - film programme

All and nothing

When confronted with everything at once, will we be able to decipher anything, or will we just see nothing? The three films in this programme –curated in response to the exhibition From Seeing to Acting– reflect on the limits of the frame but also the capacity for what’s within it to explore a world beyond it and set things into motion.

Foyer (Ismaïl Bahri, 2016, France, 32 min)
“A film / a fire. The sheet of paper / the cinema screen. The film’s title refers to the formation, however ephemeral, of a foyer of looks: the filmmaker and the passers-by look on together at the piece of paper [placed in front of a camera lens], commenting on the ongoing experiment.”

One Thousand and One Attempts to be an Ocean (Wang Yuyan, 2020, France, 11 min)
“[The film] reflects on the experience of not being able to see the world with depth perception [...] It's about a desire for groundless waves, blended with today's inexorable entropy of our information societies.”

Generator (Takashi Makino, 2011, Japan, 20 min)
Distant aerial shots and close-ups co-exist in Takashi Makino’s evocative abstract film that explores superimposition as a way of visualising what’s invisible in his response to the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami. 

Sunday 3 October 2021 (admission 5 euro for 1 time slot)
13:30–14:45 hrs & 15:00–16:15 hrs (max. 40 visitors per screening)
Two screenings of a special film program connected to the theme of the exhibition.
