    LINES OF FORCE
    Dan Browne, Canada | 2018 | 4K | Color | Silent | 2’

    E-TICKET
    Simon Liu, Hong Kong/USA/UK | 2019 | HD | Color | Sound | 13’

    A film sixteen thousand splices in the making. E-Ticket is a frantic (re)cataloguing of a personal archive and an opportunity for rebirth to forgotten images. 35mm photo negatives and moving pictures (taken during the artist’s formative years) are obsessively cut apart, reshuffled then tape spliced together inch by inch in rigid increments. Fragmented views swipe between a school trip to India then culminate with a protest of a 2005 World Trade Organization summit in Hong Kong. My photographs may have all be cut up and mixed around, but at least they’re all in one place now. A retelling of Dante’s Inferno for the streaming age; a freedom of movement reserved for the modern cloud.

    CHINA NOT CHINA
    Richard Tuohy and Dianna Barrie, Taiwan/Australia | 2018 | 16mm | Color | Sound | 14’ | 🎥 16mm

    Hong Kong marked 20 years since its hand over; half way through the planned 40 year ‘one country, two systems’ transition. Taiwan, once imperial China, once Formosa, now ROC on the edge of the PRC. Multiple exposures of street scenes distort space and place creating a fluid sense of impermanence and transition, of two states somewhere between China and not China.

    Nomadica – Weekend On the Moon 2019 – October 31 / November 3 2019
    Bologna, Menomale, via de’ Pepoli 1/A

     

    Rigorous, polymorphic, intimate, and explosive in the making: with such a drive this cinema investigates humankind and its gaze, work, existence, sense of self and the whole. The films we will be dealing with during this long weekend don’t display opinions or collect judgments, instead, they are gestures, acts: they are unknown and limitless images that generate multiple thoughts in front of the eyes that reach out and look at them, tie and untie them, and desire them (from the Latin de-sidera, “drifting apart from the stars”).
    This Cinema has nothing to do with the traditional ways of producing, it doesn’t attempt to capitalize a thing, and lives in another space of action: an essential authorial and artistic act.
    The Weekend On the Moon (WOM) refers to two celebrations: the moon landing of 1969 and – ten years prior – the starting of the exploration missions of the satellite (the first experiments on the Moon, and the first images that moved away from Earth). It is explorations we deal with, we who travel through the hidden corners of an underground cinema in continuous expansion.
    Tens of films, created in recent years and premiering in Italy, organized in a kaleidoscopic program that follows a continuous movement inside and outside of the screen, from day to night. And then, three mornings dedicated to the dissemination of thought and experience: Three ways of talking Cinema. All while immersed in a lunar Wunderkammer, the Menomale Space, the heart of the city.

    Un fare rigoroso, polimorfo, intimo ed esplosivo: con tale spinta questo cinema indaga l’uomo, il suo sguardo, il lavoro, l’esistenza, la percezione di sé, del tutto. Quelli che trattiamo in questo lungo weekend non sono film che espongono opinioni, potenziali sommatorie di giudizio, ma sono gesti, atti: sono immagini sconosciute, sconfinate, che generano pensieri molteplici di fronte agli occhi che le raggiungono e le guardano, le fanno e le disfano, che le desiderano (dal lat. de-sidera “mancanza di stelle”).
    Un cinema che non ha nulla a che fare con le modalità di produzione comuni, che non cerca di capitalizzare un bel nulla, che vive in un altro spazio d’azione: atto autoriale e artistico essenziale.
    Weekend On the Moon (WOM) fa riferimento a due ricorrenze: l’allunaggio del 1969 e, dieci anni prima, l’avvio delle missioni di esplorazione del satellite (le prime sperimentazioni sulla Luna, le prime immagini che si allontanavano dalla Terra). Di esplorazioni si tratta, per noi che viaggiamo negli angoli nascosti di un cinema sotterraneo in costante espansione.
    Decine di film realizzati negli ultimi anni, in anteprima italiana, strutturati in un programma caleidoscopico, in un movimento continuo dentro e fuori dallo schermo, dal giorno alla notte. E poi tre mattinate dedicate alla diffusione del pensiero e dell’esperienza:
    Tre modi di parlare-il-cinema. Il tutto immerso in una wunderkammer lunare, il Menomale, l’esatto cuore della città.

    Nomadica ospita il programma di Analogica, a Bologna, per amplificarne il movimento: dare la possibilità ai film di proiettarsi anche a queste latitudini e a noi spettatori di incrociarne gli sguardi. 7 film provenienti da varie parti del mondo, tentativi di un cinema contemporaneo fortemente ancorato all’utilizzo della pellicola. L’esperimento è sempre un tentativo – estremo, innovativo, reiterato, riformulato, rigenerato -, è il linguaggio stesso che non si blocca in una formula, immagini in movimento di un mondo che si espande senza sosta e nonostante tutto. Condividiamo la spinta di Analogica, e ringraziamo per la preziosa opportunità.
    Nomadica will host Analogica’s exhibition, in Bologna, to amplify its mouvement: give films the chance to be projected at these latitudes and give us the opportunity to cross their glances. 7 films oming by various parts of the world, attempts of a contemporary cinema strongly attached to the use of film. The experiment is always an attempt – extreme, innovative, repeated, reformulated, regenereted-, it’s the language itself that cannot be chained, images-mouvement of a world that expands without ceasing and despite everything. We share Analogica’s thrust, and thank them for the precious opportunity.

    Analogica nasce per stimolare e sostenere la divulgazione e la conoscenza dell’utilizzo di tecnologie analogiche nella pratica artistica e creativa, supporta il cinema di ricerca e sperimentale e sostiene filmmakers e artisti che lavorano con la pellicola. ANALOGICA SELECTION è il programma annuale di film promosso da ANALOGICA attraverso l’omonimo festival e un tour di proiezioni nazionali e internazionali.
    Analogica is a platform for the investigation and dissemination of analog practices in visual and sonic experiments. Throughout the year, a selection of the best works screened at the Analogica festival travels in various places around the world  to provide encounters where artists working across disciplines (photo, film, sound, installation) can meet and exchange ideas about analogue practices.
