hannes schüpbach double feature
fr 16/09 6 pm | hannes schüpbach – programme 1
This programme is a selection of Schüpbach's earlier films he made in the 2000s. Winter Feuer consists of short, gestural pictures of different people in a winterly mountain village. Shots of the snowy landscape are connected with images of flames, embers and sparks of a fire. Toccata follows the structural logic of “il tocco”, a short and soft touch. We see images from Genova, people, streets and traffic but also plays of light and the materialities of different architectures that withdraw themselves from a precise temporal situation. In L’Atelier Schüpbach (re)creates the physical space of his Parisian studio through the film. We see views out of the windows, trees and buildings that are seemingly the same but at the same time always different and changing. Verso is a kind of film portrait of Schüpbach’s father to whom he turns and whose movements he follows.

The second program consists of Falten, where Schüpbach pays attention to the materiality, even sculpturality of fabrics, but also natural objects such as flowers, leaves and his own hand. We also show Instants, which was shot in the countryside in Avignon and plays with the temporal specificity of the instant. In this context he worked together with the poet and archeologist Joël-Claude Meffre who created a poem cycle of the same name. Before the projection of Instants, Schüpbach will read some of the poems. The last part of the programme consists of the filmmaker’s latest and longest film Essais, in which he observes seven of his friends, artists, creatives and researchers, their movements, gestures and idiosyncrasies. In between, there are sequences of the dancer Kira Blazek who again and again, in changing clothes, tries out new steps, movements and bendings.
