MUFF 8 - SUNDAY, MAY 26, 2013

PEUT-ÊTRE VINTAGE (6029A ave. du Parc)

Dear Diary: Il était une fois…

5:00 p.m. | 62m00s

“I can tell he's trying hard to grasp it. The idea that there are things of no use.” In these seven introspective pieces, MUFF audiences will experience the darkly comical tone of existential futility in Something's Been Answered; the aura of painful regret and loss supplanted by hope in Gains and Losses; the bittersweet stories of Blind Spots and Charles; the turning of a text into a personal phantasmagoria in VerheiBung der Bildert; the subjective docu-nostalgia of Réminiscences; and the distanciating aesthetic of the Mexican wrestling film, Flexing Muscles.

Programmer: Karina Mariano

Caffeinated Jitterbugs

7:00 p.m. | 55m00s

A collection of shorts exploring the palpability and materiality of film and video through an emphasis on surface, colour, sheen and grain. These unique works—one developed using instant coffee—evoke the impressionistic pulpy textures of watercolor, the inscrutable layering of the palimpsest, the rawness of found footage, and the mesmerizing, uncanny imagery of digital glitch.

Programmer: Brad Colbourne
