Mother’s Day – watch free video of Question and Answer session with FILMMAKER Su Friederich – AXW Film Festival August 26, 2015 – TRT: 36:29
Watch Su Friedrich at the AXW Film Festival
- CEALLAIGH AT KILMAINHAM; Kelly Gallagher
(USA; 7.00; 8MM to digi)
A found footage collaged and handcrafted exploration of land, roots, radical history, and the strength of the women who came before me.
- I INHERIT MY GRANDMOTHER'S FEAR II; Shirin Mozaffari
(USA; 1.00; digi)
Inherit My Grandmother’s fear II is a part of a series of animations exploring the inheritance of fear through generations of women. The over imposed morphing photographs include personal family portraiture of the artist, her mother and her grandmother in addition to the artist posing as her great grandmother in her great grandmother’s clothing.
- BE MY CLONE; Laura Hyunjhee Kim
(USA; 2.21; digi)
I am interested in the language, sound and movements of the body and how all of these elements are used in communication. Quoting and re-contextualizing from autobiographical references, art history to mass media, I pull source materials from the everyday. Appropriating familiar images and stylistic formalities from popular culture, I embrace absurdity and my recent works have been subjected to my “It’s Complicated” love and hate relationship with the Internet and technology. Be My Clone is a continuation of my exploration in the various modes of communication. Presented in the formats of a music video, I appropriate the tropes of popular culture – the abstraction of words and images through repetition. The piece in particular realizes the contemporary obsession over storing data and retaining memory. Transferred through USB flash drives and cloud devices, the desire to share a moment through replicating data often overrides truly enjoying the experience itself and preserving authenticity.
- MALDITA VOUGUE (BAD VOUGUE); Júlia Portella & Melina Schleder
(BRAZIL; 11.10; digi)
A movie about the desire to fit in and the way this desire can consume you.
- A DAY'S PLEAD; Linda Fenstermaker
(USA; 7.15; 16MM to digi)
A Day’s Plead explores anxiety and unease within oneself and the space one inhabits. Focusing on the structural forms of objects that make up a house, the film questions the nature of ‘home’ itself. Through the symbology of windows, doors and maps, “A Day’s Plead” attempts to understand feelings of dislocation and isolation in the everyday.
- QUEEN TAKES PAWN; Su Friedrich
(USA; 6.43; 8mm to digi)
A journey through an old house by way of a mirror, a child’s storybook, and some images from days gone by. Or a journey through some old images by way of a house. Or both.
