Punto de Vista 2021 Winners
Direction: Helga Fanderl
The film is a composition of four black and white Super 8 originals shot at different moments and places and blown-up to 16mm. Night at a Canal, Snowfall, White Flowers for P. and Wild Geese are in-camera edited attentive observations. They witness the artist’s way of seeing and using the camera as her instrument communing with the subject matter. In the sequence the brief silent films unfold their rhythms and poetic strength. The dancing grain of the 16mm print emphasizes the quality of film as film.
