Screening and discussion

OCEANO NOX processes a 1912 newsreel that memorialized the sinking of the Titanic. The original material exemplifies both the formality and the poetic nature of documentary aesthetics in the days of Early Cinema. Close scrutiny and rewriting of the original punctures its newsworthiness and lays bare its underlying form. (G.W.)

ACCELERANDO (completion: 2016)
A cinematic essay on the analytical power of utopias – at its center: “Fabrik Poldihütte”(a fragment of “Das Stahlwerk der Poldihütte während des Weltkriegs” [Poldihütte steel works during the Great War], 1916), “The Battle of the Somme” (1916, Malins & McDowell) and “Europe’s Optical Illusion” (1909), pacifist Norman Angell’s pamphlet on the “Great Illusion” that war and military action can help maintain the status of countries in the “economically civilized” world.
