fiction, 45min, D: Bady Minck  link link link vimeo

 

Through the eyes of cosmic cartographers, MappaMundi takes its viewer on an accelerated voyage through 950 million years of Earth development, 150.000 years of human migration and 15.000 years of human cartography. The film visualises the continuous change of our world, a change that is unnoticeable for a human being in a single lifetime. Its a film about the image of the world that we have been sketching repeatedly anew for thousands of years. With over hundred world maps from the past 15.000 years, the development of our view of the world from its beginnings to this day is analysed and illustrated in its diversity.

WALDSZENEN

fiction, 30min, D: Annja Krautgasser  link

 

Waldszenen ist ein strukturell–experimenteller Film, der im Wald spielt. Protagonistin des Films ist die Figur Alva, die als figurative „Schablone“ ohne konkrete Handlung durch den Wald streift. In diverse Szenen unterteilt, stellt der Film neben der bruchstückhaften Gedankenwelt Alvas eine Art Versuchsanordnung dar, in der das Motiv „Wald“ als politisches, kulturelles und gesellschaftliches Bezugssystem dient.

KAFKA, KIFFER UND CHAOTEN

fiction, 85min, D: Kurt Palm link link vimeo

 

Fünf völlig unterschiedliche Studenten teilen sich die Liebe zu Gras, Alkohol, die Verehrung für Franz Kafka und eine reichlich versiffte Wohnung. Was die perfekte Ausgangsbasis für einen Horrorfilm sein könnte, wird bei Kurt Palms neuestem Kinofilm zu einem kaleidoskopisch bunten Roadmovie, zur bösen Satire auf die österreichische Filmwirtschaft – und zu einer absurd-realitätsnahen Komödie über den Sinn des Lebens.

FAST FILM

fiction, 14min, D: Virgil Widrich  link

 

Fast Film is an animated homage to motion pictures, hand-made by folding 65,000 print outs of film frames into three dimensional objects.

A woman is abducted and a man comes to her rescue, but during their escape they find themselves in the enemy’s secret headquarters. This classic plot conceals an hommage to action movies. In 14 minutes, Fast Film (a play on words, English fast and German fast, meaning “almost”) provides a tour de force through film history, from its silent beginnings to present-day Hollywood. The filmmakers printed out some 65,000 individual images from 300 films, folded them into paper objects, arranged them in complex tableaux, and then brought them to life with an animation camera in a two-year production process.
