Shortlist: Fried Dynamite

25. July 19:00h until 21:00h at Kino 2

What are we and how did we get there? Artists rewrite the story of us, keeping the torch of the mystical alive, and casting an unusual glance at the metaphysics of the here and now. Reality and theatrics melt together, filling the everyday with serendipity.

The Art of Living

When the head is separated from the body and floats into the universe, we have to be hopeful that both parts find their way back to each other. An homage to surrealist René Magritte: We discover dancing sardines, a unicorn at the seaside and the seductive glow of the sun.

Sometimes a little Sin is good for the Soul

A head suspended between two rods, bodies coiling around a rod and an architectural maze with an exit sign promising a way out. This experimental film comes across as an essay on the digital gaze regime, disengaging from all visual habits at a peculiar speed.
