The Future – The City

This juxtaposition of experimental shorts discusses futuristic aspects of urban life. “The future ain’t what it used to be” as a much quoted Yogiism says. Rather than elaborating on science fiction tales, the pictures combine and merge the present, past and future in different surprising ways. Life in our times may come with more challenges than just a space oddity.

Urban Research is a special film program during the Berlin International Directors Lounge concerned with urban themes curated by Klaus W. Eisenlohr.

For years the urban landscape has been under rapid change. Due to the increased economic pressure and shift towards mono-functional uses of the city, public space more and more vanishes. The newly awakened interest in old city centers, which is a rather positive development, has also created new demands in conjunction with the deregulations of national and municipal city tasks: the city has mainly become an object for real estate investment.

On the other hand, new waves for urban movements towards a democratic renewal have appeared. A redetermination of public place may have come across, a new protest culture against the complete commercialization of the city has spread in places. Be it called neoliberal, new labor, social democratic, political-islam or post-Maoism, you name I. The radical loss of democratic political influences concerning urban development seems to have found a counter force in a rediscovery of the political space. The above sometimes extreme changes in the urban are also being reflected in creative art and film, or may even find their unique expression in the arts.

Far from Paris by Gustavo Postiglione A particular subjective and whimsical view of the city of Rosario. A look at Rosario as a woman as a pair of boobs. A look at the personal life of a movie director bounded to the life of that city that can be the place of something deep and obscure. Everything is on the edge of fiction when one lives from fiction. Rosario is that place far away from love but that is the best place for love. The city as a picture of a beautiful woman under the rain wearing boots and a raincoat. The director narrates and narrates himself using the streets his memories and his view of life as a movie in constant motion.

51 Paintings is the first instalment of the 51 Paintings Suite filmed between 2006-2012 in Germany, England and Australia by director Shaun Wilson. After visiting the medieval St Michael’s Church in Schwabisch Hall, Wilson recreated 51 characters found in the displayed religious paintings into other places of historical note with actors, friends and other film makers playing out the idea of the ‘memory’ of each painting nested in each new segment. There are no words spoken, only moving paintings and is meant to be experienced, not understood. This experimental, non-narrative film plays out the notions of slowness as a means of cinematic device by exploring the poetic links between
memory, art and time..
