Re-edit, Tuesday, 26th of July, 2011
These videos are inspired by experimental and feature film in historical references and quotations. It is not about a classic found-footage, but rather about targeted recycling of film cultural prints. These references serve as construction of new meanings that in extreme situations lack fictional starting points and are gradually heading for image abstraction. Presented by Roman Štětina.
Video, Sound, Clips, Wednesday, 27th of July, 2011
Its starting point is a classical form of video clip as well as an individual work on audio component appearing in video production. The generational problematic area of Czech video clip contrasts with unambitious illustration of sound and bustle. Presented by Alexandr Jančík and Jan Šrámek.
