KultuurKaffee and the BOZAR film department  show a selection of completed Belgian works in the experimental short categories.

In these graduation projects by students at various Belgian art colleges the search for form is central. The plot is secondary to the visual experiment and the limits of the medium are explored. The result: refreshing cinema, full of promise.

 

 

ACHIEL VAN DEN ABEELE (KASK GENT) - VIGNETTE 

ENG
A stranger arrives in an unfamiliar place and watches the world through the measuring equipment of his profession. In the circular vignette of the land surveyors lens, everything becomes uncertain: things look as far away as they are close-by and rectangular reality curls up into circles. While mapping the borders of a moving landscape, the man stands still and observes. We zoom in onto his world and try to understand the complexities of images and sounds.

FR
Un étranger arrive dans une place inconnue et il voit le monde par le testeur de sa profession. Dans la vignette circulaire de la lentille d’arpenteur tout est incertain: les choses apparaissent aussi loin qu’ils sont proches. La réalité rectangulaire devient ronde. L’homme s’arrêté et observe le monde pendant il encarte le paysage. On se zoom dans son monde en essayant de comprendre la complexité des images et des sons.

 

 

BEN DE RAES (KASK GENT) - THE PoTATO EATERS

FR
The Potato Eaters se présente comme une autre manière de regarder l'économie. Un regard pur et concentré sur le travail, en réponse aux nombreuses études quantitatives qui aujourd'hui, dominent les discours sur l'économie. Le Port d'Anvers, du jour au lendemain, et une série de lettres et de dessins de Vincent van Gogh, forment un film poétique, qui peut être lu comme une interprétation du célèbre tableau: Les mangeurs de pommes de terre (1885). Par le fait que le film ne fasse pas attention à l'efficacité ou au processus, on se rapproche de la base de l'économie: les corps bien vivant et en mouvement mais aussi au repos. Images que nous ressentons rarement au cinéma, dans les temps d'automatisation très avancée.

 

 

 

 

 

CHARLOTTE LYBAERT (KASK GENT) - BIRD 

ENG
A young girl (Clara) encounters an older man by accident. She is drawn to him and decides to follow him.  Clara wakes up in a dream, a dream that is a party. She enrolls in a kind of ritual. A rite of passage, which allows her to lose her innocence.

FR
Par hasard, une jeune fille (Clara) rencontre un homme plus âgé. Clara est intriguée et décide de le suivre. Elle se réveille dans un rêve qui a pris la forme d’une fête et se retrouve dans une sorte de rituel. Un rite de passage à travers lequel elle pourrait perdre son innocence.

 

 

DIEGO NURSE (LUCA BRUSSEL) - MOOI MISSI

ENG
Beyong, a young Latin transgender, tells in first person the process of identification and acceptance of her true self, a beautiful and independent woman who is not afraid to be herself. A painful story passed through her father’s shame and the rejection of her culture of origine that reaches a turning point when Beyong moves to the Netherlands with her mother and her brother. Although the emotional instability connected to the situation, Beyong has the opportunity to find herself especially thanks to her mother’s acceptance, her rock and her source of unconditional love and support during this long way.

 

 

GIEDRE NARUSYTE BOOTS (KASK GENT) - BLUEBEARD

ENG
It seems that there is a piece of beard kept safely in a dark labyrinth of a monastery. The beard is blue, sky-blue to be exact. Why must it remain hidden? Is it a remnant of Bluebeard, the wife-murderer with the great power of attraction? Is it still dangerous? Or attractive? What kind of secret is locked behind the door?

 

 

HANNAH BAILLIU (KASK GENT) - EN IK REN ROND OP ZOEK NAAR BROERS

ENG
A few youngsters are hanging around in a social housing neighbourhood in New-Ghent. Restless souls in search for a place in this money-driven society. They stroll down the streets, only in group, wandering in space. A place where they stray between their house and their new home. Dreaming about living behind corners, on rooftops or in the concentration of a game. They whisper, they scream in rhythms, but what is hiding between all those lyrics? Trough the repetition of Dutch rap lyrics they try to shape an image of themselves and of the society they live in. Slowly their search for a place in the world is getting strangled with the search for words.

 

 

KIMBERLY BERCKMOES (LUCA BRUSSEL) - HOW ART YOU 

ENG
Emotions conveyed through images, where language fails and words are inadequate . "How Art You " demonstrates that the expression of emotions by use of the spoken word is often limited. Language, in synergy with elements of visual communication
(color, choreography & dance and body language) constitute a strong emotional expressive medium. All this is applied in an animation film. The animation is based on several thousand drawings which were made by classic drawing using pen on paper.

FR
Les émotions véhiculées par les images, où le langage échoue et les mots sont insuffisants. “How Art You" démontre que l'expression des émotions par l'utilisation de la parole est souvent limitée. Langue, en synergie avec les éléments de communication visuelle (couleur, chorégraphie et danse et langage du corps) constitue un fort moyen d'expression émotionnelle. Tout cela est appliqué dans un film d'animation. L'animation présentée est entièrement réalisée à la main et d'assemblage de milliers de dessins.

 

 

LIZZY VANDIERENDONCK (KASK GENT) - BLUE MOVIE

ENG
“Editing has always been the most important component of my films. With ‘Blue Movie’ I choose to let the black parts in the film lead the way. The scenes where something does happen are being led by black, dusty parts that reminds us of the cosmos. The movie is 50 percent image and 50 percent sound. With ‘Blue Movie’ I started from the art of painting. Afterwards I searched for matching sounds. The next phase was looking for images. Among which a scene from ‘Salo’ from Pasolini".  

 

 

 

LIESBET VAN LOON (LUCA BRUSSEL) - THE BEAST

ENG
An experimental story of a woman with an (inner) demon who haunts her in daily life. She attempts to avoid and ignore the monster until she comes to revelation to accept and live with it. 

 

MINSKE VAN WIJK (LUCA BRUSSEL) - GOEDJONGSTIGE DEMONEN

ENG
A poetic essay about the notorious Belgian artist/writer Pjeroo Roobjee (°1945). By using a surreal mixture of animation and live action, the filmmaker Minske van Wijk brings to life his eccentric multiverse and provocative thoughts. Through a prose text written for the film, she enables Roobjee to voice both intimate musings and firm statements on his life and work. A fictional day in the life of the elder artist offers the dreamlike setting for a singular exploration of the origins of his art.

 

 

 


MIRA DE BOOSE (KASK GENT) - WHITE SKIN CLOSE EYES

ENG
The documentary ‘White Skin Closed Eyes’ tells the story about the work of Belgian artist Berlinde De Bruyckere and the people that surround her. The artist is known for her timeless, fragile statues where she surpasses the temporary. The film confronts the artisan handlings of the assistants with the dead matter De Bruyckere works with. Looking at the intense concentration while moving a body. We move between reality and imagination, between life and death. When an animal dies, a new work of art arises.

 

 

PAUL PIROTTE (ARTS2 MONS) - LA PORTE

FR
"Tous les matins, avant de me lever, j'entends cette porte grincer. Un bruit qui m'est insupportable et qui me réveille en permanence. Un grincement dont je joue pour conjurer ce moment de folie quotidienne."  

 

STEFKA BENISHEVA (LUCA BRUSSEL) - CIRCUS 

ENG
Circus is a film aware of itself being a film. Laughs and screams at itself. Questions its form. Arrives direcly at the catastrophe of the spectacle following peripheral thoughts and reflecting on all these days around.

 

 

 

EVY SCHOUTEN (LUCA BRUSSEL) - A SELECTION OF MODERN LANDSCAPES

ENG
“A Selection of Modern Landscapes” is showing the absurdity of our greed. Humanity is blinded by materialism and the media. Signs of this society infiltrate nature more and more. It doesn’t matter how far you travel, you can still buy the same things in the same stores and eat your food in the same restaurants everywhere.

FR
“A Selection of Modern Landscapes” nous montre l’absurdité de notre cupidité. L’humanité est aveuglé par le materialism et les médias. Les signes de cette société infiltrent la nature de plus en plus. Peu importe à quel pays vous voyagez, vous pouvez toujours acheter les mêmes choses dans les memes magasins et manger dans les mêmes restaurants partout.
