Since 2013 FSFF in cooperation with "BRoWN Video-Art-Film" shows international video art and artist films.
The theme at the 12th Five Lakes Film Festival: Time
... it's time to know!
It's time for the stone to blossom at ease,
that restlessness beats a heart.
It's time, that it's time.
It is time.
Paul Celan, extract from Corona

PARADISE LOST. The film combines a sound relief of the pre-Romanesque with a representation of the Fall of Man with a video film by NASA simulating a diverging galaxy. The projection is reduced to the form of a stylized apple.

DREAM. A pool where people swim in the clear water or a lock filled with dirty water, through which ships glide and disappear again.
The film does not follow a clear narration. Illogical or unrealistic contexts return to a different kind of dream world in which real states reflect the subconscious.

UMFORMUNG DER URSPRUNGSKUGELN DURCH DIE ZWEITE DISTANZ. The 1st instance produces undeformed origin balls. The 2nd instance, which is divided into work hierarchies, deforms the spheres and passes them on to the 3rd instance, the human being. The lowest workers rebel against the hierarchy system. But they don't stand a chance.

PARADISE LATER. The historical continuity between colonialism and globalization is revealed with the help of the literary classic "Heart of Darkness" by Joseph Conrad. The criticism of globalization and mediation fascinates through conciseness and poetry and gives an idea of the impending worldwide apocalypse.

D/2010-18/10'03/Director: Simone Kessler
SO VIEL WASSER. The naked body of an old woman is almost completely covered with photos from her life. One by one she takes the pictures from her body and let them fall to the floor. She starts showering. The last photo that protects your body is washed away by the water.
Nl/GB2000/9:13/Director: Michael Dudok de Wit
