Address: Ala-Malmin tori 1, Helsinki
Lecture spectacle shows both the critique of stereoscopia and celebrates it turning the attention of the spectator towards the ideological ground of ”reification”. Lecture spectacle includes acted part and two stereoscopic films from different times. Includes the works ”3:s ulottuvaisuus esiin” (Alvar Hamberg, 1953) and “Joule” (Zapruder filmmakersgroup, 2010). Performed in Finnish. Live performers: Kari Yli-Annala (Guy) and Ivan Punzo (Gianfranco).
ALVAR HAMBERG: 3:S ULOTTUVAISUUS ESIIN (1953, 12min, DCP)
Hamberg´s film is one of the first stereoscopic films ever made in the Northern Europe, among the reportage films by a norwegian Gunnar F. Syvertsen, made in the same year.
ZAPRUDER FILMMAKERSGROUP: JOULE (2010, 23min, DCP)
Joule is part of a ‘double-headed’ project consisting of two complementary and autonomous cores – Joule and All Inclusive; both explore the certain and contradictory relationship between work, giving and sacrifice. The fish is the project’s symbol, a perfect example of a living creature which can eat its own kind, provided they are smaller.
Our Planet Stereoskopia -series of screenings presents moving image works often called 3D-films, based on stereoscopic vision. We reveal its properties from the magical attraction to the reification of the world´s phenomena and it´s critique. The main venue for this program is Malmitalo cultural centre (Ala-Malmin tori 1, Helsinki), with an exception for Sami van Ingen’s Hate, organized at WHS Theatre Union (Unioninkatu 45 LH 1-2).
