Once again after four successful editions, LaborBerlin presents DIFFRAKTION, its annual showcase of new works on film by its members and friends. This year, DIFFRAKTION is very excited to welcome guest programmer Koyo Yamashita who is presenting a selection of Japanese experimental films made between 1975 and 1980. The program provides a glance into one of the most fruitful periods in independent Japanese cinema. With works rarely screened in Germany, it also serves as a unique opportunity to experience one of Japan’s most unruly and idiosyncratic artistic scenes. Koyo Yashamita is the artistic director of the Image Forum Festival and programmer of Image Forum, one of Tokyo’s best-known independent cinemas. He joins us after taking part in the Jury for the Tiger Awards Competition for Short films at the Rotterdam Film Festival.

This program will be accompanied by our traditional program of new films, Installations and expanded cinema performances by lab members and friends. As always the films range widely in formal and thematic approach yet they all explore the unique and ever expanding qualities of analog film.

Labor-Berlin-WNWF-films

The film collective LaborBerlin and ausland celebrate DIY film culture on November 23rd 2014

To celebrate the anniversary of the [auslands-filme] series LaborBerlin prepared a wild evening of Super8 and 16mm projections. Divided in three blocks, <Early Works>, <New Films> and <Peformance>, the program covers a period that goes from the collective’s beginning 10 years ago until the present time, revealing the diversity that shapes LaborBerlin: a community of filmmakers and artists coming from different countries, backgrounds and practices that have analogue film as their common language.

INTERTIDAL – Visiting filmmaker screening

Date: Saturday, November 8th 2014
Screening: 20:00
Location: Arsenal, Potsdamer Straße 2, 10785 Berlin

intertidal_STILL2

LaborBerlin is partnering with Arsenal to host visiting filmmaker Alex MacKenzie who will present his latest performance, INTERTIDAL. This piece shows a submersive exploration of the tidal zones and marine life off the shores of Western Canada. Using both camera and non-camera approaches, this work presented on two analytic 16mm projectors speaks to the fragility of both the film medium and the marine environment explored. The scope and materiality of both emulsion and environment are explored using elements as wide ranging as photograms, alternative film chemistry, live manipulation, and the very movement of the tides themselves. At once personal, political, visual and ecological, the work gives equal weight to representation and abstraction.

FRENKEL DEFECTS – Visiting filmmaker screening

Date: Saturday, Oktober 4th 2014
Screening: 20:00
Location: West Germany, Skalitzer Str. 133, 10999 Berlin

With films by Andrew Busti, Malena Szlam, Martha Jurksaitis, Sarah Biagini, Mariya Nikiforva, Taylor Dunne, Charlie Egleston, Robert Schaller, Margaret Rorison and Kevin Rice.

Before the program Matt Rappaport and Ted Hardin, who are in town from Chicago, will be sharing three short films involving tourism, travel, and distance.

KINO B: CONTEMPORARY CINEMA BY BERLIN-BASED ARTISTS

Date: Thursday, 14. August 2014
Screenings, Artist Q+A, Reception: 19:00 – 22:00
Location: Uferstudios, Badstraße 41a (Gate 1) 13357 Berlin, Studio #9 (Wedding)

Parallel © Harun Farocki 2012

 

Artists: Guillaume Cailleau & Ben Russell, Harun Farocki, *Isabella Gresser, *Bernd Lützeler, Anna Marziano, *Deborah S. Phillips, Michael Poetschko, *Sylvia Schedelbauer, and Daniel Steegmann Mangrané (*Artist will be present for the Q&A.)

Curated by Caroline Koebel

The Kino B artists share a command of cinema’s potential for experientially transformative critical reflection. Their travels far and wide encompass a specially-engineered tracking shot through the Amazon rainforest; a young man in the woods amidst harrowing visions of war; an explication of how computer motion graphics elide differences between real and simulated trees; such authors and philosophers as Nietzsche, Yourcenar, Arendt, and Barthes; as well as the lived experience of the streets of Athens, Mumbai, and Berlin.
