No Future – Experimental Short Films About the Future

Angelika Levi & Antje Schäfer, Stan Brakhage, Grace Jones, Germaine Dulac, Ana Vaz, Bruce Conner, Blake Williams a.o.

The future cannot be foretold, but that is not a reason not to try to do just that in experimental and avant-garde films. Reflections about the experience of time, playing with expectations, and the desire to develop “a new way of seeing” through the creative use of technology. This short film programme is dedicated to the various facets of the dialogue between future and experimental film work from the 1920s to the present of the 2020s. The focus shifts back and forth between small and large, from 16mm films to videos to 3D.

Works to be screened include films by Angelika Levi and Antje Schäfer, Stan Brakhage, Grace Jones, Germaine Dulac, Ana Vaz, Bruce Conner, and Blake Williams.

In cooperation with Kinothek Asta Nielsen, exf f. – tage des experimentellen films, and the DFF cinema.
