Figure Minus Fact

Mary Helena Clark
USA 2020
13min
OF
V'20

Es wohnt viel Dunkles und auch Trauriges in diesem Film, kollagiert aus schmerzhaft schönen, mysteriös dissoziativen Bildern und dissonanten Tönen. Wir sehen sehr konkrete Objekte, manche wie gemalt, andere in Nachtblau getaucht, und nach jedem Schnitt erscheint etwas völlig Unerwartetes. Natürlich hat der hohe Grad an Formalismus auch einen Sinn: „I want to make cinema that is both trance-like and transparent: that operates on dream logic until disrupted by a moment of self-reflexivity, like tripping on an extension cord.“ (Mary Helena Clark) (Roman Scheiber)

In Anwesenheit von Antoinette Zwirchmayr und Friedl vom Gröller.

Some animals disguise themselves as plants for their own protection. Can a film disguise itself as the night? Dressed almost predominantly in shades of black and blue, FIGURE MINUS FACT explores mimicry by sensation. Sometimes it imitates a movement, at other times a way of associating with light, creating images and sounds that are almost tactile. As if, for a moment, those rare, ever so slightly recognizable objects we see and hear were there in the room with us. (Lucía Salas)

In the presence of Antoinette Zwirchmayr and Friedl vom Gröller.
