韓國實驗電影元祖金千熙大師(2003焦點導演)繼零二年《黑雨》的苦行之後潛行九年，影像更見精練凝聚。以主觀的一小時徒手畫成一個圓，把意識形態的崇高客體幻化成一道有血有肉的北回歸線，是向雕刻時光的伊里托洛夫斯基致敬之作。彷彿禪與藝術的相遇，看似也無風雨也無情的筆觸實質暗示了南北之間的微妙衝突，被視為無語問蒼天的政治寓言，有說這集大合之作是最後，但死在這裡也不錯。 同場加映揚威獅城的短片《雪花》（6 min），把簡約美學進行到底。
Director: Kim Cheon-Haei / South Korea / 2011 / 59min
Master of Korean experimental film Kim Cheon-Haei (a highlighted Director in 2003) has lurked for nine years after his ascetic Black Rain (2002). He returns with an even and concise technique of images that pays tribute to the time sculptor, Illy Taklofski. Seemingly an encounter between Zen and art, quiet brushstrokes amplify the subtle conflict between South and North, resulting in a silent political fable. Some say this is his best ever - and his last, but it is great to end like this. A bonus short film Snowflake (6 mins), already honoured at the Venice Film Festival, will also be shown, continuing the minimalist aesthetic.
Forgotten Land: Where Are You?
Director: Pesciolina Ferrara / Italy / 2008 / 83min
Cast: Nadia Ferrara
Bored with screen sizes of 16:9 or 4:3? Have you seen a super-wide movie in 4:1? This movie uses a trinity of 3-channel movies. The sound and images harmonically tune-up one after another, the diptych sometimes deviates and misplaces, and even betrays. The different language systems continue to disturb the audience’s interpretation of the movie, forcing a constant reconstruction of the story. Ferrara was previously Art Director for Antonionioni’s later movies and is similarly inspired by life in other places – and the ambiguity and absurdity of language. Every strange question has the same inner secret, a search for identity and belonging. The film earned a best visual effect merit award from the Portuguese Film Festival.
Stolen Time For Sale
Director: Frans Sillanpää / Finland / 2011 / 89min
Some people say, “the value of a second is worth as much as for gold”. Frans Sillanpää, instead says, “I can use gold to buy time”. He claims himself to be the first merchant to ever sell time. He travels up through levels of a building, pressing elevator buttons. By the time the elevator stops and the door opens, he has already stolen the time of the people inside the elevator. To reclaim this lost time, one has to pay for it. The director sets prices for different clips, and allows the audience to purchase other people’s time. The sold clip will be noted: “SOLD - Xsecs - $X”.
