Screening #2. A non-linear & non-chronological program of abstract experimental films, from the 60's to the 90's.
From the 60's to the 90's. Second part of a program dedicated to abstract cinema, where sound and images are intimately linked. In some cases images even produce sounds. Chemestries, scratches, direct manipulaton of celluloid, lights, images composed with the first ever computers in human history, …All the films presented in this program were made without using a classic film-camera. But all were made and will be screened on film. In the background, the sound of the projector will comfort our ears. Let's spread the word: it will be a "real" film experience. A "vintage" experience!
