Film Programme 2: Repetitive Actions

PROPOSAL

Minimal investigations of the tension between the body, diaristic/ everyday movement and documentation.

WHY

These films and videos each set up a minimal procedure to explore the interaction between a person and the (documentary) film/ video process. What initially seems simple ends up contrarily distanced and intimate, public and private.
