THE 9th BERLIN INTERNATIONAL DIRECTORS LOUNGE [DL9]
11.02.13 / Monday / Day 5
PLACES, PEOPLE, PROJECTIONS: 16 MM TO 16 REASONS
Labor Berlin starts off tonight’s offerings with 16mm works using up to three projectors simultaneously. An increasingly rare event worth catching, at 18:00 (6:00 pm). Then Klaus W. Eisenlohr follows with his second “Urban Research” excursion, “Personal Histories = Places,“ presenting a curated program of visually arresting short films (19:00/7:00 pm). Next up, the DL9 Selection II has no less than seven World Premieres, with three of the filmmakers on hand to share more about their visions. Iolanda La Carrubba of Italy serves up “La Sesta Vocale (the sixth vocal)” and Enrico Viets (Germany) his “Petrolfilm,”whileTorontonian-turned-Parisian Matthew Lancit gives us ironic self-loathing and a boy/young man/old man split of himself in two shorts, “16 Reasons Why I Hate Myself” and “Death Of A Gentleman”. Also in attendance is Cathy Lee Crane (US) with “Adrift.” Meet these cinematic story-crafters tonight at 20:30 (8:30 pm). Then at 22:30 (10:30 pm), KROATIEN KREATIV (Ivan Marusic KLIF and Hrvoje Niksic) gives an audio-visual art performance to mark Croatia’s accession to the EU. (Supporting curators: Dr. Alida Bremer and Ingeborg Fülepp.) The night remains young with a live performance byCourage + Craft at 23:30 (11:30 pm), a trio (including contrabass) led by the soaring and diving vocals of opera-singer Nikko Moss in a hybrid of grab-your-heart torchsong and slap-in-the-face irony. Nikko’s offbeat persona charms without fail. All tonight at [DL9]… see you there!
