SoundImageCulture invites: Negotiating frames, an evening with Messidor
A double portrait starting as a silent portrayal of two similarly dressed women, obviously related, and different in age. Suddenly a discussion develops about the frame and their position within the image.
Is it a knife because… by Sirah Foighel Brutman and Eitan Efrat (Brussels premiere)
A film made at home and born by processes of film-making and parenthood crushing into each other. The film carefully challenges notions of authority. The authority of parents, of image producers, and that which lurks outside the window. Is it a knife because… entangles love and violence with the most honest attempt to understand where light comes from.
Babel by Meggy Rustamova
Everything begins on a fixed shot of a middle-aged lady, she seems serious and thoughtful. She tries hard to remember some words from a language unfamiliar to our ears, her native language: Assyrian.
What and how do we remember? What is dead or alive? Upright Drum In Water intertwines the own personal memory with the memory and identity of a nation.
Horaizon by Meggy Rustamova
An immersive and experimental film where sound and image have no hierarchy. The film addresses topics such as tourism, the human urge to visit specific landscapes and the ecological impact of this.
