The closing party will take place in the swimming pool hall. LaborBerlin is proud to present Étienne Caire as a special guest.

LaborBerlin’s Loop Orchestrator Guillaume Cailleau collaborates with Werner Dafeldecker on a live cinema performance this upcoming Saturday at Regenbogen Kino, starting 8:30pm. The performance will be followed by a concert by the French musician Antez. Clearly a MUST-see for radical cinephiles!
Performance by Guillaume Cailleau and Werner Dafeldecker
(2 super 8 projectors with loops and feedback mixer. 15 min.)
Tangible sound, beating under the skin, wrapped into an envelope of stereo film projection. The sound is accomplished within the vibrating human body, elevating it in its firm grip, allowing to transcend into a different space/time. Two super 8mm projectors create a vibrating space for this body, wrapping it in the pulsing of colors, the interfering frequencies of light. A transcendent analogue experience, physical, radical, handmade, and live.

Before the screening we’ll have a barbeque in Panke’s garden by the canal in good weather, or in Panke’s roofed driveway if it rains. We’ll start at around 6pm, come early, meet the filmmakers, programmers, and organisers, and hang out! After the screening there will be a record release party of DZA, who will play a complete live set with support by the Finest Ego DJ’s Area Boy, Binh, Gordon & Puzzle. The night will host a broad sonic mixture between Hip Hop, Electronic, Dubstep, Wonky and Glitch. Find more info about the party here.
Please note, the screening will start at 8:30 sharp, so please be on time!
Cut and Run began in early 2009 in San Francisco as a single screening event at Artists Television Access. It has since evolved into an annual traveling film festival, nationally and now internationally, featuring experimental and avant-garde cinema, both contemporary and past works. C + R celebrates works that deviate from mainstream and traditional cinema and opt towards authentic, brave, challenging, stylized, alternative and imagined subjects.
Since its start in 2004, Flexfest has become one of the most important festivals for experimental media in USA, challenging us to rethink what ‘experimental’ means. Roger Beebe, who is the artistic director of Flexfest, and who is currently teaching a 5 week workshop at LaborBerlin, will present the program.
On Wednesday, April 6th, after our regular monthly meeting, we’ll present the Analógika workshop results at 10PM. During a 9-day-workshop, led by LaborBerlin members Linn Löffler and Michel Balagué, in Budapest, Hungary, 16 participants learned to work with analog film material (super 8 and 16 mm) including shooting, developing and editing.
