JOHANN LURF: Time and space in avant-garde cinema


Gijón/Xixón International Film Festival maintains its traditional interest in the newest cinema and avant-garde. In its 56th edition the FICX will focus on the work of the Austrian structuralist visual artist Johann Lurf, with a retrospective —the first in Spain— made up of two programmes in which includes, in one hand, his first feature film, ★, and in the other a careful selection of short films in a session designed as a visual roller coaster in which the viewer will be able to enjoy the effects of Lurf’s experimentation with time and filmic space. Johann Lurf studied at the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts and the Slate School of Art in London, and graduated from Harun Farocki’s Art and Film Studio. His dazzling pieces have travelled all around the world and have been shown at outstanding international festivals such as Sundance, Rotterdam, Toronto, Viennale and Karlovy Vary.

Programme (2): Exploring the frontiers of time and space in the moving image

In this carefully crafted and ordered session in three defined parts, the spectator will be able to be carried away, as
if it were an attraction of a theme park, by an itinerary of pieces that experiment with filmic time through different
techniques ranging from found footage, multiscreen division into a single plane, contraposition of slow camera
movements with accelerated soundtracks, implausible plane cuts and rupture of raccord.

First part: Introduction to Cinema
