Filmmaker, photographer, and installation artist Matthias Müller embodies the trajectory of German experimental film of the past 20 years — from Super 8 to found-footage work to the more recent merger of film and digital art in cinematographic installations. Hollywood cinema and experimental techniques coexist in his films, resulting in works that depart from the logic of genre to form something radically new. Cutting-edge German experimental artist Christoph Girardet works with found footage and creates film/video installations, thereby often transforming film sequences into rhythmic loops. Their collaborations include the Phoenix Tapes, an encyclopedic dissection of Alfred Hitchcock’s films (on view in the Walker’s Lecture Room in February), and the 2006 Cannes prize-winning short Kristall, a melodrama composed of appropriated footage of mirrors. Program length 105 minutes. A dialogue with the directors follows the 7 pm screening.
