Steve Reinke at IFFR
Portrait of Reinke's upstairs neighbour, Andy, combining elements of amateur pornography with documentary profile.
Everybody Loves Nothing: Emphatic Exercizes
In seven separate yet linked exercises, the maker tries to come to terms with archive footage.
The Hundred Videos
Aesthetic, eclectic result of the maker's attempt to complete '100 videos before the year 2000'.
Incidents of Travel
An adventure story in which every exciting incident is reduced to a title.
Afternoon (March 22, 1999)
Home-movie-like video in which the maker films and 'lives' a specific afternoon from his life.
Anal Masturbation & Object Loss
A library full of books glued shut. All the information is there, but inaccessible.
Vegetative States: An Attempt to Instill and Measure Altered
The complete title is: Vegetative States: An Attempt to Instill and Measure Altered States of Consciousness in Household Plants. And that is what the video is all about.
Ask the Insects
Partly home-made science, partly dreamy video animation.
The East Germans started in the 1970s with their allies on an ambitious, secret project to colonise the moons of Jupiter and Saturn. You didn't know that, did you? Finn reveals all: with beautiful archive material, swinging musical numbers in retro-socialist style, beautiful miniature sets, guinea pigs and a dramatic plot theory.
Canadian genius Reinke finds a new way to look at a CBC documentary.
Regarding the Pain of Susan Sontag (Notes on Camp)
In this work, Reinke goes looking for the essence of Susan Sontag’s photographs.
Hobbit Love Is the Greatest Love
Desktop video in five parts with in each part modest tips about how to survive by using, or resisting, politics and history.
Rib Gets in the Way
Reinke's excess of images, language, connections and suggestions creates a cinematic essay on life's questions. Philosophy, archiving, disease cells, nocturnal animals and art are just a few of the ingredients of his work, which is replete with humour and self-deprecation, and concludes with watercolour animation.
Welcome to David Wojnarowicz Week
