Johann Lurf at IFFR
Uncompromising work made up of variations on a repeating shot of an approaching and withdrawing movement, with a very hypnotic effect.
Twelve times Johann Lurf sets off firework in the nocturnal streets: cheerful images without words.
Zwölf Boxkämpfer jagen Viktor quer über den großen Sylter Deich 140 9
Ingeniously compiled sequence of 3664 found film frames contains a different image for each viewer to latch onto.
Let's refer to NASA images as found footage. Director Johann Lurf stimulates multiple senses. A great trip.
Hilarious overview of architectural failures. A road movie that provides new insights, but goes nowhere.
Silent observation of colossal concrete structures around an abandoned reservoir. The extremely long lens creates a new perception.
A vertical film about the most enigmatic of man-made structures, and an exploration of basic cinematic mysteries: time, form and structure.
Night-time, high-tech surveillance video uses circling camera and hallucinatory soundtrack to depict an average business park. Things are not what they seem.
What exactly is written in the stars? Experimental filmmaker Lurf scoured over a century of cinematic history for depictions of the heavens. Without compromising his criteria, he edited them together chronologically, including their original soundtracks. A visually dizzying trip.
Cavalcade deals with basic elements of the motion picture: movement and standstill, as a turning wheel interacts with strobe light synchronized with two 35mm cameras.
