It’s a wild world

There will be an in person screening of several of my films at FREIEN KINOS in Künstlerhaus Wien on June 7th at 8pm. I will be there for a Q&A and talk to curator Martina Tritthart

Wir widmen diese Personale des FREIEN KINOS der österreichischen Künstlerin Michaela Grill, die in Montréal (Ca) und Wien lebt und arbeitet. In diesem Filmprogramm ist der Fokus auf die unterschiedliche Wahrnehmung und Darstellung von Natur und Landschaft gerichtet. Ein Schwerpunkt, der sich neben der Beziehung von Bewegtbild und Sound, sowie die Auseinandersetzung mit dem Medium Film, wie ein roter Faden durch ihre Arbeit zieht.

under the microscope

will be screened this Sunday May 22 at Festival International Musique Actuelle Victoriaville. Thanks for the invite Karl Lemieux! more info: https://www.fimav.qc.ca/fr/edition/cinema PROGRAMME 2: ELECTRIC SHADOWS, SUNDAY MAY 22, CARRÉ 150, 11 AM – $15 This program brings together experimental films from Quebec, the Netherlands, and Austria. Pushed to the limits of abstraction, these works travel between the shadows of 35 mm film and the electric matter of video, while also foregrounding the important dialogue between experimental film and music. The program opens with two found footage-based films: « Rhythm In The Backstroke » by STEVEN WOLOSHEN and ALEXANDRA GRIMANIS, which features the music of Fred Frith; and « under the microscope » from MICHAELA GRILL, in collaboration with musician Sophie Trudeau (GY!BE). After the works of two Quebec video artists: JULIE TREMBLE’s « Explosion no 3 »; and SABRINA RATTÉ’s « House of Skin », realized collaboratively with musician Roger Tellier-Craig during a residency at the Cinémathèque québécoise; we enter into the singular world of JOOST REKVELD, who makes films using complex networks of analogue computers. The program closes with « Train Again », the latest opus from the grand master of analogue filmmaking, PETER TSCHERKASSKY.
