The second program INNERE WELTEN SIND DIGITALE WELTEN of the HGB's Expanded Cinema class deals with our perception and consciousness. How, for example, does our perception of figures shift when surfaces change? And how do we find a consciousness that brings a new kind of functional coexistence? The answers lie in the digital!
BRD 2019, Louis Hay, 9 min, OV (English).
Following the structure of a film diary, the connection to the developed figure begins to slip on the surface of an enigmatic object - some call it a crystal, a fold or a crack - that seems to enclose the speaking subjectivity.
THE OPEN SPACE
BRD 2019, Caro Eibl, 47 min, OV (English).
In a constant stream of heavily filtered, inverted images, THE OPEN SPACE tells the story of a fictional, collapsed social system. In it, its inhabitants* are condemned / blessed to live a life of constantly changing profiles and accounts. They are driven by the attempt to achieve a consciousness that leads to a new kind of functional togetherness. Based on a short-lived love story backstage at a music festival, Caro Eibl follows alternating protagonists*: the innocent life of a young boy, an activist, a thief, a broke pick-up artist and other ephemeral characters to create a film experiment that oscillates between an algorithmic dream, a memory and a desire for connection. The proposal of the dissolution of the ego and the transition into a shared consciousness, reflects the collective longing to want to connect and merge into community.
