PROGRAM 2 PART 1: CURIOUS FANTASIES


Amour Pour Une Femme

Amour Pour Une Femme

RT: 09:13 Emily Eddy

A collaboration between Emily Eddy and Natalie Chami (TALsounds), commissioned by Chicago Film Archives for the 2019 Media Mixer. Human bodies, animals, children, and plants undulate together on rapidly changing frequencies. Between landscapes of anger and sexual desire, a white-hot climax builds under the surface.
Oh My Homeland

Oh My Homeland

RT: 04:00 Stephanie Barber

Oh My Homeland, while being simply a shot of Ms. Price’s face as she receives the applause and before returning to the role, expands with the unaltered meditation on the shot. The transformational power of art for society and the maker alike; the implication of Ms. Price’s race and the context to which she dedicated her life; the staggering political implications of the Verdi aria (a mournful and complicated love letter to Aida’s homeland) in a time in which love of country is hard to muster.
It Matters What

It Matters What

RT: 09:06 Francisca Duran

Absences and translations motivate this experimental animation in an exploration of the methods and materials of reproduction and inscription. The inquiry is set within a framework of practical and critical human relationships with other-than-human-species elucidated by the theorist Donna Haraway.
A Woman In Trouble is a Temporary Thing

A Woman In Trouble is a Temporary Thing

RT: 07:00 Karen Yasinsky

A fictional portrait film including Victoria Legrand set in a flat dystopian space. I was thinking about Philippe Garrel's portrait film of Nico and Jean Seberg and Friedl Kubelka's films. Opens with a scene from Tarkovsky's Andrei Rublev, tempered by an animated disintegrating cobweb.
Curious Fantasies

Curious Fantasies

RT: 08:10 Jesse Mclean

The descriptive language of celebrity perfumes serves as inspiration and source material. Give us your songs, your smells and we will give you everything. The rich get richer, everyone smells poorer.
My Favorite Object

My Favorite Object

RT: 04:54 Meredith Moore

An enactment of transmutation, of the animation of the previously inanimate, the dead, the unborn. A rebirth of the self.
When it is Still

When it is Still

RT: 10:00 Anna Kipervaser

An enactment of transmutation, of the animation of the previously inanimate, the dead, the unborn. A rebirth of the self.
Spirare

Spirare

RT: 06:30 Francesca Talenti

Seeing music flow: one continuous charcoal drawing, reinterpreted as a digital film.

PROGRAM 2 PART 2: FILMS BY NAOMI UMAN


Removed

Removed

RT: 06:30 Naomi Uman

Using a piece of 1970's porn film, nail polish and bleach, the filmmaker has created a new pornography, one in which the woman exists only as a hole - an empty, animated space.
Private Movie

Private Movie

RT: 06:00 Naomi Uman

A love story in three parts. This film tells of a woman's journey of love, with nostalgia, pets, places and men.
Hand Eye Coordination

Hand Eye Coordination

RT: 10:00 Naomi Uman

"Hand Eye Coordination" explores the manual manipulations upon the film body, examining the cinematic result of mechanical interventions. This film tells the story of its own making.

On This Day

RT: 04:00 Naomi Uman

On This Day presents snapshots of a Ukrainian wedding. The film examines my personal relationship to the subject, and reveals a secret I had kept hidden during the making of the film.
