Vertical Cinema Cahier now available
Vertical Cinema is a unique project featuring a series of ten commissioned vertical films made in 2013 by internationally renowned experimental filmmakers and audiovisual artists. This monumental screening of their 35 mm vertical cinemascope films premiered at the 2013 edition of the Kontraste Dark As Light Festival, where Kontraste Cahier #3 was presented.
The Vertical Cinema cahier includes texts about the works by the participants in the project: Joost Rekveld, Tina Frank, Björn Kämmerer, Gert-Jan Prins & Martijn van Boven, Manuel Knapp, Johann Lurf, Rosa Menkman, Billy Roisz & Dieter Kovačič, Makino Takashi & Telcosystems and Esther Urlus. It also features an extensive introduction to the rich history of expanded and exploded cinema, by professor, curator and author Timothy Druckrey (US), who guides us through the mutations of the burgeoning moving image, fuelled by the technological growth of the medium over the last 50 years.
