68th Berlinale – Celluloid Corridors: Sermon

Forum Expanded

B-side of an audio-play about cinema: part film-manifesto, part audio-essay, part cinematic-séance, channeled via the voice and words of Berlin/Salford-based FITH co-founder, filmmaker, writer Dalia Neis aka Dice Miller, with music, arrangement, and celluloid-splicing from Berlin-based Kreidler-chief, Andreas Reihse. Voices summoned from the lucid realms of the technologically-spirited, more-than- human archive: “[…] backed with abstraction of classical instrumentation, with stabs of strings warped into a thousand fragments, brutally interspersed with piercing shrieks before bringing things back to earth with perfectly measured throbbing organic whirrs. Focussing on images, but […] bringing things almost chronologically forward, with the history of film being investigated.”
