Enjoy Films About Art

This year’s Films About Art International Competition includes 12 innovative, creative documentaries and docu-fiction. One of the entries, a winner at the Venice Film Festival, is a debut by Swedish artist Anna Odell entitled Reunion (July 30 at 7:15 PM, KNH 8) – a film stretched between feature, documentary and performance art. The artist returns on screen to her school days and reconstructs a school reunion to which she was not invited. Once there, she was to face her former persecutors. Another competition film is the Spanish The Creator of the Jungle directed byJordi Morató, which is a portrait of the folk artist who has spent 45 years living in a forest and is consumed by a constant mania to create and destroy his complex labyrinths and moving eccentric constructions (July 27 at 1:15 PM, KNH 8).

During the festival we will also screen three musical films: an excellent film by Nick Fenton and Peter Strickland showing the concert by the Icelandic starBjörk, Björk: Biophilia Live(July 26 at 3:45 PM, KNH 1), a documentary by Florian Habicht about legendary British rock group Pulp: Pulp: a Film about Life, Death and Supermarkets (July 26 at 1:15 PM, KNH 8) and Yximalloo directed by Tadhg O'Sullivan and Feargal Ward, that offers a closer look at the music of an avant-garde electro composer (July 26 at 10 AM, KNH 4).

Other competition prize contenders include Portuguese director Joaquim Pinto and his film What Now? Remind Me, a video diary in which the HIV-positive director submits to experimental therapy (July 29 at 7 PM, KNH 8); Giuseppe Makes a Film by Adam Rifkin (July 28 at 7:15 PM, KNH 8) about a self-taught filmmaker who is fascinated with people living on the margins of society, as well as a portrait of street artists and the monkeys they train in a film by Ismail Fahmi Lubish, Masked Monkey - The Evolution of Darwin's Theory(July 28 at 1:15 PM, KNH 8). We recommend you take note of a paean to a controversial American Dadaist artist, Elsie von Freytag-Loringhoven, directed by Cassandra Guan and Lily Benson entitled Mamadada filmballada(July 26 at 7 PM, KNH 4)as well as Patrice Fortier’s The Sower, a portrait of an eccentric gardener and artist seemingly lifted from a Wes Anderson film (July 27 at 4:15 PM, KNH 8).

Two Polish films have made it into the competition: the world premiere of Karol Radziszewski’s The Prince, which examines the legend of theater artist Jerzy Grotowski through the prism of his actors from the Laboratorium troupe (July 29 at 1:15 PM, KNH 8) and 15 Corners of the World byZuzanna Solakiewicz, which is a portrait of Eugeniusz Rudnik, the cult composer and sound director, cofounder of Polish Radio’s Experimental Studio (30th July at 1:15 PM, KNH 8).
