Beyond Shorts

The theme of this year’s BISFF is “pushing the boundaries of cinema.” The two programs in this year’s “Prism” will demonstrate this theme through expanded cinema, performance and audience interaction. 

 

The films in “Prism” program 1 are performed live. Lee Hangjun is a filmmaker of expanded cinema living and working in Seoul who has performed in festivals and venues around the world. In this piece, he will perform with a 16mm projector but rather than create images, he will create sounds as he pulls the film through the apparatus. Jacques Perconte, a young filmmaker from Paris, has been working with video, distorting playback and creating abstract patterns in the mosaic of pixels that make up a digital image. He has made live performances including an opera. Here he will perform live from his home while Lee Hangjun creates an improvised soundtrack. 

 

* The two programs in this year's Prism include film screenings and live performances.

Film Walk

Lee Hangjun, Ryu Hankil (Improvisation)

Korea2010- Experimental30'No Dialogue12

Lee Hangjun’s performance 《​Film Walk》​ treats the projector literally as an instrument as Lee threads 16mm film through only the sound head of a projector tuned on its side, bypassing the projector’s gate. The film has sprocket holes where the soundtrack would usually be, which when pulled over the sound head by hand produce an electronic purr, or, when amplified enough, an unpleasant metallic grinding.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        * The two programs in this year's Prism include film screenings and live performances.

Jacques Perconte’s video performance Wild Extension starts from digital images shot on the island of Madeira and interrogates color through a progressive abstraction of the landscape.
