In Light, In! / Ken Paul Rosenthal / 12′ / 2014 / Found Footage / USA

manage its emotional distress. Images recycled from 1950’s-era educational films are
accompanied by original compositions by world-renowned cellist, Zoe Keating.

Deux Champs (Two Fields) / Kevin Obsatz / 07:51 / 2015 / 16mm / USA
In 1953, a young photographer in Greenwich Village took a photo of Marcel Duchamp that was
double-exposed by mistake. Over 50 years later, he saw his own photo in Smithsonian Magazine,
and learned that it would be featured at the Smithsonian Museum in a Duchamp retrospective.
Deux Champs (Two Fields) is a short, black and white documentary shot on 16mm film which
gives Victor Obsatz, now in his 90s, an opportunity to reflect upon that day, and everything that has
happened since.
Kevin Obsatz is the son of the cousin of Victor Obsatz, but the two had never met until one day in
the spring of 2015, when Kevin arrived in New Jersey to capture this story with a 16mm Bolex
camera. Since the crux of the story is a double-exposed black and white negative, it seemed
important to shoot this project on film and create double-exposures in-camera, trusting in fate that
the footage would turn out okay.

Over&Over / Michael Fleming / 8′ / Found Footage / 2016 / the Netherlands
A 35mm found-footage hand-manipulated collage film focusing on the depiction of fear and
revenge seen in commercial cinema. Manipulating our fear of mortality, it suggests we decimate
what threatens us. The surface of the film material has been treated in the same way: peeling,
scalping, cutting, and burning the image.
Michael Fleming is a visual artist and a VJ. He ‘paints’ with manipulated film and found footage
from kitsch, cult and news broadcasts. Fleming has shared his work on festivals, in clubs, during
live performances, in galleries and several museums all over the globe.

called Monger.

(California, USA), and the University of Copenhagen (Denmark). He currently lives and works in

HARBOUR / Eric Stewart / 15′ 33” / 16mm / 2016 / USA
HARBOUR is a 16mm film focusing on the English Fascination with the Pacific Northwest. It
evaluates ecological simulation and historic recreation to find in Landscape a stage for the
enactment of the Other. In the 19th century English aristocrats where especially fascinated with the
large evergreens of the Pacific Coast. Entrepreneurs and naturalists began importing spectacular
trees, such as the California Redwood, throughout the United Kingdom. This importation of fauna
was part of a circuit of appropriation through recreation; where the English simulated, in garden
and greenhouse, the ecology of colonial landholdings while exporting English culture and
architecture to said colonial locales.

Les Châssis de Lourdes / Rhayne Vermette / 18′ / 2016 / Found Footage / Canada
