SYNOPSIS

Pleasure Domes 1987 dir. Maggie Fooke (7:56 mins)

"Pleasure Domes (1988, Maggie Fooke) is a reflection upon man-made impositions upon the landscape from Nice to St. Kilda Esplanade." National Film and Sound Archive, Canberra

The National Geographic Magazine 1971 dir. Michael Lee (12 mins)

"In "The National Geographic Magazine via the movie camera of Michael Lee" the filmmaker processes images from 1930's editions of the magazine using a hand wound 16mm Bolex camera, by manipulating the aperture, the focus, the zoom lens, by panning and by multiple exposures of the film." Michael Lee

Space Time Structures 1977 dir. Jonas Balsaitis (33 mins)

"Visual and aural analysis of both space and time. The film comprises a series of animated drawings filmed in black and white then coloured by filtering processes on an optical printer. A film by Melbourne painter Jonas Balsaitis with music made by Australian artists Asher Bilu, Mike Brown and John Mathews." National Film and Sound Archive, Canberra

Death of Place (Annotated) 2018 dir. Dirk De Bruyn (14 mins)

"An abstract film that accumulates 16mm images from my archive. All images have been produced with analogue effects. Apart from transferring to digital with my JK optical printer all interventions to the image are material. What  invisible language rises to the surface when images become unlocatable.

In this latest iteration, this work is further wrapped in found footage from the Russian Revolution, home movies, the utterings of Marshall McLuhan and Vilém Flusser, and annotated in ways that extend its word-play with a renewed emphasis on the crash that ends the film." Dirk De Bruyn
