EFS @ Sound Collector @ Project Arts Centre
Four Experimental Film Society films will be screening as part of a Sound Collector programme at the Project Arts Centre on Saturday November 30th at 7:30 PM. Sound Collector is a series of events in Dublin which explore the spaces between music, installation, improvisation, sound, and noise. They aim to provide a platform for experimentation and exploration of multidisciplinary art practices in a performance environment. Works by UNDINE, SHANE LATIMER & FRANCIS MATTH, NATALIA BEYLIS and FORWIND. EFS films are:
Ghoul (2018) by Michael Higgins / 8mins / Ireland
The ghosts of a man and his dog haunt a rural Irish field in this claustrophobically atmospheric plunge into unsettling nocturnal textures.
Play Ground (2017) By Vicky Langan / Maximilian Le Cain / 17mins / Ireland
Play Ground is a tribute to the great Dutch filmmaker Frans Zwartjes. Langan & Le Cain play characters locked into patterns of desire who seem unable to connect in this playful but ultimately melancholy film. It formed the basis of the first Langan / Le Cain live performance.
The Underworld (2019) By Jann Clavadetscher / 17mins / Ireland
This hallucinatory trip through the psychedelic recesses of science fiction begins in the flickering bowels of the earth. An explorer played by Cillian Roche undergoes a bizarre mutation in which cinema itself might possibly play a part. Clavadetcsher’s gorgeous 16mm colours and dazzlingly intense editing are underscored by a characteristic lightness of touch.
Antler (2018) By Atoosa Pour Hosseini / 15mins / Ireland
Pour Hosseini’s work with Super-8 conjures a mysterious territory that exists between memory, subjective perception and the objective materiality of the filmed image. Antler pushes deeper into this realm, seamlessly combining archival footage of animals and reptiles in their habitats with newly filmed material of the artist and an assistant at work in a botanical garden.
