'Building Stories' at Pakhuis de Zwijger
For the talk-screening at Pakhuis de Zwijger, a curated selection of 3 films from the MINUTES series is presented. The selected works reflect on the ‘meaning of being’, metaphorically touching the topics of birth, death, and immortality.
This period of intense uncertainty inevitably led us to reflect on our lives and the physical (or symbolic) space we occupy in our environment and society.
The three selected projects reflect on the ‘meaning of being’, metaphorically touching the topics of birth, death and immortality. It emerges through the forces of creation (Crafted by Benitha Vlok), the acceptance of mortality (Static by Spirit of Space) or possible immortality (Notes on an Immortal Being by Jaime Levinas). Building stories will explore this conceptual fil-rouge crossing over the 3 projects while discussing the potential of intertwining cinema, architecture and other creative practices.
The talk-screening Building Stories will be moderated by Dana Linssen, a film critic and writer. During the evening, 3 works from the MINUTES series will be presented by Benitha Vlok and Alice Martins (via Zoom), Red Mike fromSpirit of Space, as well as Jaime Levinas, introducing his upcoming expanded cinema project ‘Notes on an Immortal Being’ with a performance. Besides them, KAAN Architecten founder and associated partner Dikkie Scipio and Martina Margini, MINUTES film series curator, will also participate in the discussion.
