This series focuses on the enduring traditions and lasting influence of experimental and avant-garde filmmaking. This is so-called formalist cinema, using film in ways that are comparable to the aims of modern painting and sculpture, foregrounding the medium itself, emphasising the film strip, the frame, montage, projection, and even the chemical and technological processes. The rejection or subversion of Hollywood-type storytelling generates works with a loose or non-linear narrative, making unexpected dislocations of time and space, permitting personal explorations and poetic or ironic juxtaposition. Taken together, these journeys of colour and sound demonstrate the sheer dynamism of experimental cinema over the past 85 years.

The TLC continues its work drawing out the primary sources in artists’ film in Australia with an evening with Mike Leggett. Linking Sydney to the heady days of seventies London where he was a founding member of the London Filmmakers’ Co-op, this event explores Leggett’s 1970s structural films, his 1980s media-performance works and his ongoing interactive art research in Sydney.

Remoscopes

Last night down at the ourmedia film screenings, they played some excellent “remoscopes” by a Japanese collective. The idea of remoscopes is to follow the “lumiere rules”:

Lumieré Rule (six conditions)
no effect
no edit
maximum 1 minute
fixed camera
silence
no zoom

Some beautiful works came out of it, full of consciousness of time passing and the beauty of the ordinary. I’d love to see more, and it’d be so easy to organise a night of home grown remoscope!
