LOCARNO 2021: THE CASE OF THE VANISHING GODS BY ROSS LIPMAN

By Monica Delgado

The Case of the Vanishing Gods is the new work of the filmmaker, archivist and film essayist Ross Lipman, which recovers the elements of fascination for the archive, reissue and essayistic reflection of his previous works. This time he makes it through a few episodes of a series called The Psycho ward, which is renamed differently for the purposes of the festival. But that is the least of it, what matters here is the way in which Lipman talks about the figure of the double, or the other, here embodied in the relationship of doll and ventriloquist through his constructions and imaginary in the cinema.

LOCARNO 2021: THE CASE OF THE VANISHING GODS DE ROSS LIPMAN

Por Mónica Delgado

The Case of the Vanishing Gods es el nuevo trabajo del cineasta, archivista y film ensayista Ross Lipman, y que recupera los elementos de fascinación por el archivo, la reedición y la reflexión ensayística de sus trabajos previos. Esta vez lo hace a través de algunos episodios de una serie denominada The Psycho ward, y que para los fines del festival se retitula de otra manera. Pero eso es lo de menos, lo que importa aquí es el modo en que Lipman diserta sobre la figura del doble, o del otro, aquí encarnado en  la relación de muñeco y ventrilocuo a través de sus construcciones e imaginarios en el cine.
