Screening at Mau Mau Underground

Mau Mau Underground Barcelona

In the late 1990s, Gallery Mau Mau has been a counter-cultural artistic space in South Africa, where many exhibitions and happenings took place.

In Barcelona, there is a location that takes a quite similar approach and, this is probably the most obvious point, dedicates its name to this original gallery:

The Mau Mau Underground. It is an old industrial building, that now functions as a mixture between an art gallery, a lounge club, and a stylish place to enjoy independent or experimental movies and shorts.

This friday, June 1st 2007, the crew of Mau Mau Underground will be screening several of my shorts, together with some animation stuff of BoumanStudios, also from Barcelona.

The proyections will start at 22:00 and if you like to see them, here you can find how to get there. There is no entrance fee.

17th International Videofestival Bochum

17th International Videofestival Bochum 2007

From June 14th to 16th 2007 the 17th edition of the International Videofestival Bochum will take place at the lovely and unofficial capital of the Ruhr AreaBochum.

“We once again present a selection of the latest in video art, from narrative to experimental, sets by internationally renowned VJ acts as well as a multi-varied supporting programme, comprised of lectures, workshops and a guest festival. We are particularly proud of living up to the festival’s name by screening a wealth of international contributions. In addition to three thrilling days, an unparalleled late-night programme awaits our guests. At three parties in three different locations, DJs create the right vibes with electronic beats, and VJs participating in the festival have the chance to prove their skills in homey club atmosphere.

The Videofestival considers itself a platform for enthusiasts of video-esque moving pictures and wishes to establish itself as a forum for video artists, activists, documentarists, theorists and each and every one who simply enjoy watching videos.”

Unfortunately I won’t be able to be there this year, but the video 60 seconds that I made with Sandra Trejos in Switzerland last year, will race for the GrandVideoSlam Award. I suggest everybody to see some shorts at the festival – it’s free and definitely worth a visit.

Cortalamos en Los Alamos!

Este miércoles (21.3.07), como siempre en el bar Los Alamos,
habrá proyecciones de diferentes cortometrajes – incluyendo el video-danza 60” que hice con Sandra Trejos en Suiza el año pasado.

La entrada es gratis y la dirección del bar es la siguiente:
Bar Los Alamos, Calle Escudellers 12 – Barcelona (Barrio Gotico, metro Drassanes)

Además, este es el programa completo para el 21. de marzo 2007:

SUBJUNTIVO de Alejo Ubach y Bruno Zaffora (Buenos Aires 2005)

Un hombre que perdió la memoria se ve forzado a realizar una investigación y descubrir quienes son las personas que aparecen en una foto segundos antes de morir. Pero no sabe que descubrir la identidad de esos extraños es aun más peligroso que rehusarse a hacerlo.

60” de Fritz Gnad (Suiza 2006)

La ciudad suiza de Bienne podría ser denominada como el epicentro de la puntualidad suiza, ya que en ella se encuentran las manufacturas de los relojes Swatch, Rolex, y Omega; pero además, también se puede percibir fuertemente el pasar de los segundos en la vida cotidiana de sus habitantes y de la ciudad en general. La coreógrafa costarricense Sandra Trejos y el videoartista alemán Fritz Gnad, en su videodanza “60 Segundos”, se acercan tanto al tema del tiempo como al de su percepción.

HEAVEN de Santiago Riscos, Angela Mogollón y Rafael Cano (Barcelona)

Andrés quiere suicidarse, pero no sabe lo que le espera detrás de la muerte… ¿Seguirá conectado de alguna manera al mundo de los vivos?

ANTIVIRUS de Santiago Riscos, Rafael Cano, Khris Cembellín y Santi Justribó (Barcelona)

El sistema es un asco, pero al menos los amaneceres son bonitos… Todos los archivos duermen en sus carpetas, pero el Agente especial McAfee de la patrulla antivirus vela por la seguridad del sistema y defiende a los archivos de los correos sospechosos.

SPLIT de Luis Yrache Jimenez, Marcello Vai y Andrea Maccaroni (Barcelona 2004)

SHAKY WHITE GUYS MAKING FRIENDS de Erik Eliason (Suecia 2007)

Otra forma de amistad entre hombres. Un viaje audio-visual con elementos mezclados entre video y animación.

CUNT WISH BLUES de Erik Eliason (Suecia 2006)

Sueños de un chico que vive en una isla.

SPLENDID EYE EXPLOSION de Marco Silvestri (Barcelona 2006)

la 240: filmfestival in san josé

das filmfestival la 240 findet vom 9. bis zum 13. mai in san josé, costa rica statt. präsentiert werden musikvideos, animationen und dokumentarfilme von jungen lateinamerikanischen filmemachern.

für mich persönlich ist das festival ein schönes ereignis, weil sie meine beiden kurzen clips von den videoslams in bochum zeigen: ‘less students’ und ‘we believe in nothing’ laufen als internationale beiträge außerhalb des wettbewerbs am 12. mai. die beiden videos kann man sich auch auf youtube anschauen.

Update:

Unter dem Titel Muestra de cine joven atrae productores de Europa y Latinoamérica hat die costarikanische Zeitung La Nación mich als einen der ausländischen Filmemacher des Festivals erwähnt.
