This summer at Hubert: Outdoor Cinema
Knock knock, summer’s here! Because we want to add some zest to your hot summer nights, Go Short will screen short films out in the open. From the 6th of July onwards, we gladly invite you to come and watch short films every night after 11 ‘clock from Wednesday until Sunday.
Every week, Go Short will program a fresh new short that will play on a loop the entire night. The Outdoor Cinema starts when it’s dark enough to fully experience the films, which will mostly be after 11. You will hear the sound of the films through headsets, to give you that kind of “silent disco”-feeling. Entry is free and the hospitable service of Hubert will make sure that you can watch the film with a delicious drink in your hand.
We’ll kick off with the film Ten Meter Tower (Hopptornet) by Axel Danielsson and Maximilien van Aertryck. In this film, you see ordinary people in bathing suits and swimming shorts hesitate whether or not they should take the jump. In their personal process, trying to overcome their fears, a range of emotions passes by. Ask yourself while watching: would you make the jump or would you refuse? Dive into this rollercoaster of emotions and identify with the fearful bathers or daredevils who jump without any hesitation at all.
Will you plunge into short film this summer? Visit Hubert. This is the weekly program:
6 – 10 July: Ten Meter Tower (Hopptornet) by Axel Danielsson and Maximilien van Aertryck
On a 10-meter high diving tower, fear of taking the jump is pitted against the personal loss that would arise if you didn’t dare. What do we look like when we hesitate and when we make a decision? What does it look like when we overcome our fear?
13 – 17 July: Slug Life by Sophie Koko Gate
Are you ready for some weird animation? Do we have the perfect film for you. Tanya has finally created the perfect partner, a beautiful giant slug.
20 – 24 July: Hubert gesloten in verband met de Vierdaagse Feesten
27 – 31 July: Coyote by Lorenz Wunderle
A coyote loses his wife and children from an attack of wolfs. Anguished from human emotions he‘s trying to process the experience. Besides grief and delusion, evil takes up more and more space.
3 – 7 August: The Burden (Min Börda) by Niki Lindroth von Bahr
A dark musical enacted in a modern market place, situated next to a large freeway. The employees of the various commercial venues, portrayed as animals, deal with boredom and existential anxiety by performing cheerful musical turns. The apocalypse is a tempting liberator.
