By Monica Delgado

This online edition of the Visions du Reél festival has a competition for shorts and medium-length films that allows access to some works, which, although they are made under a very different influence from each other, gives a glimpse of the political touch of this edition, understood as a critical approach to various contemporary facts of reality.

SARAH FRIEDLAND: ASSEMBLED CHOREOGRAPHIES AT HARNETT GALLERY

By Monica Delgado

The proposals of American artist and filmmaker Sarah Friedland have been based on materializing some concepts of choreographic art as an organized practice, but transferred to the realm of the everyday and familiar, which transforms the nature of the action and does not necessarily make it obvious

Por Mónica Delgado

Las propuestas de la artista y cineasta estadounidense Sarah Friedland se han basado en materializar algunos conceptos del arte coreográfico como una práctica organizada, pero que son trasladadas al ámbito de lo cotidiano y familiar, lo que transforma la naturaleza de la acción y la vuelve no necesariamente consciente.

VISIONS DU RÉEL 2021: CORTOS DE MOONA PENNANEN, JULIE RAMAGE Y CRISTINA MOTTA

Por Mónica Delgado

Esta edición online del festival Visions du Reel tiene una competencia de cortos y mediometrajes que permite acceder a algunos trabajos, que si bien son realizados bajo un influjo muy distinto entre sí, deja entrever el toque político de esta edición, entendido esto como una aproximación crítica a diversos hechos contemporáneos de la realidad. No solo se trata de un festival de “cine de lo real”, sino de uno que alberga el espíritu conflictivo y decisivo de estos tiempos, de los efectos y climas de la pandemia, de periodos de disputas discursivas y estéticas.

CINÉMA DU RÉEL: FIGURE MINUS FACT DE MARY HELENA CLARK

Por José Sarmiento Hinojosa
Antes que nada, las imágenes aparentemente fugaces y desconectadas de Figure Minus Fact (2020) de Mary Helena Clark hablan de una gran convergencia. Es una convergencia de conocimiento dialéctico, a través de la contingencia inherente de imágenes del aparato de vida, que se abre con el mecanismo de una campana como un gran transportador al inicio de los tiempos.

TRANSPARENT! THE BODIES OF YURI MURAOKA

by Claudia Siefen-Leitich

Filmmaker and poet Yuri Muraoka, born in 1981, describes her films, videos, photographs and texts as “self-portraits”, but above all she shows the modern image of a woman within contemporary Japanese society. Writings and drawings as well as her collaboration with the “Video Research Laboratory” consolidated the cinematic work of the internationally established artist. Perversion, illness, and corporeality form the framework for her self-documenting art. In 2019 I was able to pair two of her films with a screening of Koji Wakamtsu, and here I would like to take a closer look at this her very individual and personal form of artistic self-expression.

MALMKROG: A GRACEFUL FEAR OF DYING

By Rodrigo Garay

I wanted to compare some of Vladimir Solovyov’s original passages from War and Christianity with its counterparts in Puiu’s film to try to reveal a modern reading of an old moral debate. Then I thought it would be better to focus on mise-en-scène and the thoughtful support of dialogue that intertwines the characters through its fluid panning shots.
