Constellations / Mosaic of Views

FIFA EXPERIMENTAL is an out-of-competition, by-invitation section of the festival. Emphasis is on works by artists offering singular perspectives on art and on creative processes, on the political impact of images, text and sound, and on the potential of art works to investigate what we identify as reality.

A MOSAIC OF VIEWS gathers perspectives on reality and narratives emerging from it. The four works on the program examine the revelatory, suggestive and unifying power of images and sound: a moving video by John Greyson dedicated to the memory of Egyptian filmmaker Shady Habash and his compatriot, lesbian activist Sarah Hegazi, both of whom were unjustly imprisoned, and to all prisoners in Egypt, in which an onscreen mosaic serves to gather points of view and sources of images from various parts of the world; an unsettling assemblage of found footage by Anne Golden; an experimental science-fiction film by Billy Roisz and Dieter Kovacic; and a work that invites attentive listening to nocturnal desert sounds, filmed and recorded by Félix Blume. From one work to the next, historical, political, utopian, imaginary and poetic dimensions enter into dialogue.

How to put a thought, an emotion, an experience, a reality into motion? How to give voice to difference, film and record it and, more important, share it? These are the concerns of the artists in this program.
