A DAY FOR CAKE AND ACCIDENTS

Steve Reinke - Jessie Mott
Reinke continues to explore the quirky possibilities of the animation film, collaborating once again with Jessie Mott, who delivers her idiosyncratic drawings, paintings and collages, plus also wrote the accompanying texts. References to cartoons and comics are once more evident, though Reinke stays somewhat of a league of its own...

MAGNUM BEGYNASIUM BRUXELLENSE PART 1/2

Boris Lehman
‘Magnum Begynasium Bruxellense’ is a living chronicle of the inhabitants of the Béguinage area of Brussels, so named because it is located over the site of the old béguinage.

BETWEEN FLASHBACK AND DÉJÀ-VU

Krassimir Terziev
Two cameras monitor each other persistently. One - fixed on a tripod, turned directly up to the sky, while the second is attached to a drone that draws a vertical take off above the spot of the tripod, and landing back, trying to keep as much as possible the vertical axes of movement. The views from the two sources alternate with various frequency in the process of editing...

Myriam Van Imschoot
This portrait pays tribute to the British music legend Phil Minton and the many voices that live within his wide vocal range. Originally a trumpet player, Phil Minton developed a unique approach to his voice that sings back to the hum and din of the world. Sound is paint. The moving camera — as well as the light — encircle the singer as if meditating a riddle...

During a first act Lennep draws an uninterrupted, squiggly line on his face, with a black felt-tip, after which he envelops his head with tape...
