Bodies of Light

Invisible cinema


A session where the female body is the main figure before and behind the camera, given by a view of five female filmmakers of the new generation: Mara Mattuschka (Austria), Carole Arcega (France), Jennifer Todd Reeves (United States), Naomi Uman (United States) and Laida Lertxundi (Spain).
The works presented here share the polished work of images, playing with the grain, the over-impressions, the positive and negative of the film, etc. The physical surface of the emulsion blends, mixes and is confused with the inscribed body of the photograms, in the context of performance, self-portrait, suitable image...
