PHYSIS - Programme of the Austrian agency sixpackfilm
compiled by: Gerald Weber
Cinema as an act of force, als Kraftakt, physical exhaustion as a visual experience.
“Male cinema”: war and rituals of masculinity, struggle on its own and with the body, but also against equipment and the projector. “Female cinema”: birth and physical metamorphosis, one’s own body as a place of pain, talks and anti-talks. Everyone together, or each on their own, depending on the taste, we are all predictable in the context of society. Life is a never ending struggle that always has to be redefined. A seemingly nonsensical solution as a sarcastic commentary awaits at the end.
