    Directed by: Siegfried A. Fruhauf
    Austria, 2016, 5min.

    Is the image we see on screen in thrall to order or is it an eruption of visual chaos? Siegfried A. Fruhauf presents a volatile and frenetically-changing painting of a grid of squares that fill the image space at different angles and in varying sizes and quantities. The result is a compelling, almost physical experience.

    The black-and-white particles that constitute digital image noise – what sets them dancing? The rhythm of chaos or perhaps a secret algorithm?

    World Without End (No Reported Incidents) World Without End (No Reported Incidents)
    Directed by: Jem Cohen
    USA / United Kingdom, 2016, 57min.

    Film poet Jem Cohen has been known for decades for his perceptive portrayals of various parts of the world. This time his hour-long film investigates life in the British coastal town of Southend-on-Sea – a place whose rhythm is affected by the unceasing ebb and flow of the tides. Objects reflected in windows, the inhabitants’ seemingly banal monologues, obscure and empty corners, and houses emanating the magic of the past – all these bespeak ordinariness but also the uniqueness of human beings.
