Fierce’s favourite film festival opens next week. Some recommended highlights are:
Zigzagging between animation and live action, arthouse
and porn, the startling work of Polish auteur Walerian Borowczyk (La Bete,
Blanche) should really be better known. In telling his life story from A
to Z, Boro in the Box takes the kind of imaginative and sensual approach
that its subject deserves.
Artists are encouraged to bring along their own imagery and a projector to show it with.
Appropriating, re-working, sampling; call it what you will, chopping up other people’s films has always been a popular mode of filmmaking for video artists. Alterations features varying examples of this technique.
Artists Harun Morrison and Cody Lee Barbour share their love of music videos. Having sourced contributions from friends they will share a selection of their favourites, featuring a lucky dip of the conceptual, the ridiculous and the old-skool.
