(SELF)TRACKING SHOT

Krassimir Terziev
In motion picture terminology, a tracking shot (also known as a dolly shot) is a shot in which the camera is mounted on a camera dolly, a wheeled platform that is pushed on rails in order to realise the movement of the viewpoint in the shot. Usualy that movement is centered on a present subject that is part of the narrative...

OTOLITH II

The Otolith Group
As in ’Otolith I’, the narrator in ’Otolith II’ is related to Anjalika Sagar, one of the founders of the Otolith Group. Here, she is looking back from a distant future, while a pressure "high enough to change coal into diamond" functions as a metaphor for the way in which cities will in the future be confronted with continuous population growth...

TOUCH

Shelly Silver
A man returns, after fifty years, to Chinatown to care for his dying mother. He is a librarian, a cataloguer and recorder, a gay man, a watcher, an impersonator. He passes his time collecting images - his witnesses and collaborators. Sitting in the dark, we look at them and share his cloak of invisibility, both a benefit and a curse. TOUCH is an essay narrated from one man's point of view...

TOPIC I & II

Pascal Baes
The French film theorist André Bazin used to consider film as a spell of time. He spoke triumphantly of a victory on the irreversibility and the transitoriness of life. Baes’s ’Topic I & II’ (the painterly quality of its dusky images is for a good reason reminiscent of Francis Bacon’s strokes) seems to question these transcendent views on cinematography...

OOG EN HAND ALS UITDRUKKING 02

Jef Cornelis
For the art programme 'Openbaar Kunstbezit' Cornelis made two essayistic television reports in 1972 about the use of hands and eyes in the visual arts, “a way to look and to communicate.” Once more, 'Oog en hand als uitdrukking 02' ('Eye and hand as expression 02') is particularly free with regard to its format, bearing in mind the television standards of the time...
