Eccomi … Eccoti (Here I am … Here you are)

Raed Rafei

2017

Lebanon, 68min
Eccomi … Eccoti unfolds as a virtual road trip navigating between Italy and Lebanon. Conditioned to live in a long-distance relationship with his partner because of strict European visa regulations, the director patches together the moments shared together in an attempt to create a possible day-to-day reality for their couple. With a lyrical, ambient soundscape set atop a dreamy, atmospheric visual style that oscillates between still photography and moving images, the film explores what it means to be gay in contemporary Beirut and the aches of psychic pain that blocks one from reaching a sense of “complete-ness” with one’s self. Does such in-completeness have to do, in particular, with being gay? Or is it related to a grander malaise endemic to the human condition?

Freudian Lip

Stephen Chen

2017

Canada / 8 mins
While researching and putting together BROADS WAY, Stephen Chen realized the treatment and characterization of homosexuals as mentally ill, pedophiles, molested as a child, etc. throughout history originated from a homophobic interpretation of Freud’s theories of infant and sexual development. These interpretations in turn formed the basis of homosexual stigmatization, punishment, and “cures” (such as Aversion therapy).  Upon digging deeper (pun intended) into Freud and his theories, Stephen found Freud did not share those interpretations of homosexuality. In fact, a 1935 letter written by Freud to a mother who sought treatment for her son’s apparent homosexuality, declared that homosexuality was neither an illness, nor a pathology. Although the letter was later passed on to Alfred Kinsey and reproduced in The American Journal of Psychiatry in 1951, homosexuality was still officially classified as a mental disorder in the APA’s (American Psychiatric Association) first Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-1) in 1952.  Taking the egregious Sid Davis’ BOYS BEWARE “social guidance” film as inspiration, Stephen Chen trolls both the film and homophobes by drawing upon and extending Freud’s theories to create a hilariously plausible explanation (that is internally consistent – pun intended) of homophobia in FREUDIAN LIP – a sassy social guidance film narrated by Freud himself.  No trailer...

Rock and Roll, noise, collages su carta e progetti oscuri, Jung, l’uomo e la massa, sogno e veglia, costruzione e distruzione, palazzi e condominio. Già all’inizio di questo documentario/film saggio era chiaro che il metodo giusto per sapere non era fare ordine nelle visioni di Elisa Abela, artista visuale e musicista, ma di favorirne ed accelerarne il disordine. Oggi sono passato e tu non c’eri è un viaggio leggero ed ignoto, divertente ed a tratti enigmatico verso il nulla, risultato di un metodo compositivo spesso anti-cinematografico, inventato in corsa e condiviso con una piccola comunità di anime che hanno preso parte al racconto, generandolo a loro volta. Ancora una volta “Nulla è Vero. Tutto è Permesso”.

STONES & WATER WEIGHT is an exercise in how societies' perceive the fragilities of those who survive with the virus. In this era of globalized fitness culture through the use of social media, "looking healthy" matters much more than actually being healthy. Using endurance as the motivation for the performance, the video creates a new perception of HIV+ people as strong and resilient. Research references include the Atlas myth, the god of endurance that holds the earth and the skies over his shoulders, as well as the never ending climb of the Sisyphus myth.

Karoly Makk and Janos Xantus, 1982) and more than a dozen other films, texts and tracks to create a passionate, suspicious tapestry of hauntings, dreams, fragments and provocations.
