PrintRoom as Daumenkino of the IFFR , 26 January – 5 February, with: The Flip Collection II

Opening January 27th,  8 – 11 pm

A presentation of flipbooks by over 50 artists, designers, photographers and filmmakers as a collaborative side programme of the International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR).

In addition to showcasing these specially selected flipbooks for this year’s edition of IFFR, PrintRoom co-produced three flipbooks that share an historical slant either in subject matter, source material, or from personal experience. The evening’s presentation will also include a screening of corresponding films by the three makers.

Featuring flipbooks and films by:

Sarah Vanagt (BE) and Katrien Vermeire (BE): The Wave
In “The Wave” the archaeological gaze of the viewer is set in motion: a mass grave from the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) opens and closes itself.

Sarah Vanagt is a documentary filmmaker and video artist living and working in Brussels. In her work she combines her interest for history with her interest for (the origins) of cinema.
Katrien Vermeire is a photographer and filmmaker living and working in Brussels. Foam Magazine selected her series “Godspeed” for Foam Talent 2011.

Masha Krasnova-Shabaeva (NL/RU): Twins
“Близнецы” or “The Twins” depicts two different characters merging into one, each influencing the other in a violent way. Possibly a metaphor for constrictive family ties, and the authoritarian school system in the former USSR: each social constellation bent to ignore and even kill individuality.

Masha Krasnova-Shabaeva is a Russian born artist, living and working in Rotterdam. The tone of her beautiful, imaginative drawings is poetic and dark at the same time.

Esther Urlus (NL): Konrad & Kurfurst
Found footage highlighting a forgotten, dramatic event during a steeplechase at the 1936 Olympics sets the stage to examine the temporary national hero status within history’s moral assessment of an anti-hero.

Esther Urlus is a filmmaker specialized in handmade 16 mm films. Her latest film, ‘Deep Red’ will have it’s premiere at the IFFR 2012 and will be screened on January 28 and 29 at Lantaren Venster.

And accompanied with specially selected flipbooks by:

Gloria Glitzer (DE), Scott Blake (US), Ricardo Leal Gomes (PT), Guilia Garbin (IT/UK), Roger Bygott (UK), Alice Rice (US), Jenny Suhonen (FI), Loes Verstappen (NL), Ernesto Morales (MX), Terhi Ekebom (FI), Andre Pielage (NL), Jenni Rope (FI), Han Hoogerbrugge (NL), Mariana Zanetti (BR), Kati Rapia (FI), Samuli Otto-Henrik Saarinen (FI), Anne Roecklein (US), Marieke Verbiesen (NL/SE), Derek Parker (US), Lise Duclaux (BE), Quinten Swagerman (NL), Jan Voss (NL), Com Amoras (PT), Maurizio Montalti (IT), Tomas Schats (NL), Michael Leigh (UK) and many others.
