30/01/2019 — 9 p.m.
Since 1999 the experimental filmmaker Matthias Müller and the media artist Christoph Girardet realise together award-winning short films, which have been produced in a rigorous formal processes to create fascinating images and film poems. Mostly from their own 35mm takes and carefully selected found footage film excerpts, they exaggerate cinema into art, treat topics like childhood (“Meteor”), mirror scenes (“Crystal”) or light effects (“Contre-Jour”). All her films are a new dramatic condensation of the raw material cinema, such as the calm editing sequence of seemingly undramatic scenes in “personne”, a tribute to the great, behind his roles completely disappearing French “Nobody” Jean-Louis Trintignant.
