What is reality? The power of the imagination from the 1990s to now, in films that blend performance art, theatre and advertising to a single surreal whole. Interrupted – of course – by an (anti-)commercial break.
Films screened in this combined programme
The WalkerSu Hui-yu IFFR 2018 18′
Pop culture and high art merge into a physical, visual interpretation of the Walker Theatre in Taipei, which – in the 1990s – was home to the Taiwanese experimental art scene.
Great ChoiceRobin Comisar IFFR 2018 7′
Witty retro horror in which a woman seems caught in a loop in a dated video commercial. Family restaurant Red Lobster just won’t let go. How can she get out of here?
Swedish Candy, Some Violence and a Bit of CatEster Martin Bergsmark IFFR 2018 45′
Sugary clash and merging of violence and love, old and new, Tarzan and Jane. Above all an incitement to transgress the boundaries between all these binaries.
