OBERHAUSEN FILM FESTIVAL 2020: FOCO HENRI PLAAT

Por Mónica Delgado

En tiempos de corrección política, la obra de Henri Plaat luce perturbadora. Más allá de la búsqueda del plano y encuadres perfectos, fruto de la ascendencia pictórica del cineasta, se percibe una intención transgresora sugerente, que, a la vez, busca confrontar sentidos comunes sobre lo bello, lo grotesco, con críticas a la hipocresía social.

OBERHAUSEN FILM FESTIVAL 2019: A REPORT

By Vladimir Seput

The International Short Film Festival in Oberhausen celebrated its 65th edition this year in a week starting with Labour Day, 1st of May. Sixty-five years is a long time and its advanced age might show some signs of wear but the festival nevertheless seems to be in a rather good condition to continue for much longer. It again featured hundreds of new shorts, (re)discovered some old ones, brought plenty of filmmakers to Oberhausen (and some classics such as Alexander Sokurov), and dedicated time to invite curators and researchers to work on the new edition of its illustrious Theme.

By Vladimir Seput

To spend six spring days in Germany sounds like a good idea, particularly when you are visiting one of the main international film festivals in the world dedicated to short films in Oberhausen, known in German as Kurzfilmtage. I arrived there for the first time this year, as a part of the Seminar that was organized for the fifth time as a laboratory for filmmakers, curators and critics. This year’s Seminar led by the always inspiring artist, writer and filmmaker Roee Rosen, gathered a diverse and stimulating group which shared and discussed problems, ideas and issues of contemporary visual arts and filmmaking.
