Analog Imagination 1 – Selected Works from School Friedl Kubelka for Independent Film
The ‘School Friedl Kubelka for Independent Film’ is a unique place in the world for people of different origins, social backgrounds and ages to learn about the art form of analog film. The school is based on Dante’s quote “WHERE WHAT IS WILLED MUST BE”, meaning that an imagination, a passionate interest in a subject and its realization on analog film material is the main focus. For 17 years, the school has been promoting the artistic practice of filmmakers and offering exchange with acclaimed film artists, thereby shaping an entire generation of analog filmmakers. Made and screened on Super-8, 16-mm and 35-mm film, these works show a cinema of deeply personal and formally independent expression.
The first program deals with the idea that throughout our lives we take on many roles and are in constant relationship with other people and our environment. We are someone’s child, someone’s parent, someone’s lover, someone’s ex-partner, someone’s friend, and even when we choose to be alone, we interact with the world and objects around us
