Hey frameworkers,

A couple of exciting events in Berlin and Paris over the next few days!

The Images Festival, Canadian Filmmakers Distribution Centre, Arsenal Experimental and Lightcone present: Double Vision: Toronto / Berlin and Paris / Montreal

The history of an institution is always also a history of its subject matter. The film community in Toronto celebrates two anniversaries this year: 40 years Canadian Filmmaker's Distribution Centre (CFMDC), an artist run distribution for experimental film, and 20 years The Images Festival, a festival for experimental film, video and installation art.

November 13 >>> Paris >>> PULSE live performance, 1 shorts program
This shorts program is a collection of five film and video pieces by francophone Canadian artists, both recent works and gems from the past. The artists in this program explore the natural/constructed landscape and the formal properties of the medium itself. Joanna Empain’s Mouvances wanders over a landscape as the scenery alternates and metamorphoses. Imprint by Louise Bourque is a study of home and memory drawn from old home movie footage. Shot in a tunnel in Quebec City, Alexandre Larose’s 930 juxtaposes views of both ends of the tunnel to present a passage from light to dark and vice versa. Vertige by Isabelle Hayeur is a study of the deserted landscape of an abandoned asbestos quarry. Closing the program is Marie-France Giraudon’s Pharos, an homage to light houses and the terrain they inhabit.

Pulse is an audio-video performance based around the framework of an electronic pulsation iterated through time. In contemporary culture, the pulsation has become an essential element, namely in music. The idea of pulsation is closely related to techno culture, where analog and digital audio technologies have recently allowed the advent of a stable pulsation, without the variations that a human player might introduce. Pulse thus takes the language of techno culture by stressing the specific live experience where the experiment takes priority over emotion, where physical stimuli are paramount. The objective sought in Pulse will not be to present a composed work, with a pre-established scenario, via a traditional arc, but to produce a series of psychological states through which the witness will be able to build his own narrative.

Shorts program @ 8 pm, "Pulse" performance @ 10 pm
