Directed by Alex Anikina

Russia, 2017, short, documentary, 24 min., Russian with. Lithuanian and English subtitles

The film is occupied with the idea of a village house as a material and intimate site of story-telling and fiction in Russian history. It is weaved around the artist’s family house that was built by her great-grandfather in the village of Chichevo, near Kolomna. It is from that house, a small witness to the tumultuous events and shifts that the rural Russia has gone through in the 20th century, that the film embarks onto the experiment in narrative scale-shifting, calling onto such monumental points as the fall of Tunguska meteorite in 1908 or death of Lenin in 1924.

In the process the film exposes the folklore origins of contemporary media. Some instances break into the house: a shadow of catastrophe is looming in the background of a news broadcast; the image of a Russian field, filling the screen; the industrialisation propaganda poster doubling as everyday sci-fi. These instances suggest that in all times when the history is emerging out of media, there always emerges a space of our own, para-historical networks in which the oldest images leak forward in time, travel rhizomatically as stubborn agents persisting through replicas and minutes of footage.

Directed by Tulapop Saenjaroen

Thailand, 2018, experimental, video essay, 28.21 min., Thai, English w. Lithuanian subtitles

A tour guide and also a hotel rep automated voice, Kanya, leads her foreign guest, Alex, through a beach town in the east of Thailand called Bangsaen. Since Kanya’s presentation is overtly aestheticized and strictly regimented, Alex decides to explore the town by himself, fantasizing to get out of the frame.
