Robert Carrithers and Marianna O (Auster) CZ Jákob’s Ladder 6 min 27s 2009 | German Premiere in attendance
A loose mystical portrayal of the Biblical story: Jákob’s Ladder,
inspired by Masonic lore and Prague mystic symbols. This is a short
film, told with marionettes and with the mysticism of Prague set
inside a 16th century belfry. The mystic traditions are explored
through nonverbal narration, cut apart with montage sequences and is
enhanced by the ethereal powerful music of Vladimír Hirsch.
A Magician has an appointment to keep with Death. Death
reveals higher spiritual knowledge to the Magician before he embarks
on his final spiritual journey.

Fritz Stolberg GB Of This, Men Shall Know Nothing! 6 min 11s 2010
Based on Max Ernst’s work of the same title, “Of This, Men Shall Know Nothing!” picks up on the psycho-sexual content of the painting and explodes its inherent occult knowledge into an intuitive journey to overcome duality. This alchemist quest via the unification of the five platonic solids and their duals culminates in the androgynous fusion of the masculine and feminine aspects of the main character.

pictured: still from The Door Ajar by Patrick Jolley
Renowned installation artist, photographer and filmmaker Patrick Jolley tells a self-spun tale of what may have happened during six lost weeks in the life of French poet Antonin Artaud, who in 1937 came to Ireland claiming to have in his possession the Staff of St. Patrick, which he wished to return to its rightful place. The lost time and its possible sequence of events, which ended upon Artaud’s arrest, are reconstructed from scant evidence and Artaud’s writing during the period. Jolley recounts his gripping vision in grainy Super8 and 16mm black and white imagery, diving into the surreal in a dense and unforgettable journey of stark poetic writings and stunning visual associations. A like-titled book written in collaboration with two co-authors has been published. Jolley’s solo and groups works have been shown in major festivals and exhibits the world over from Helsinki to Sao Paulo; in addition, a number of international museums have his works in their collections, among them the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
