Film Program: The Tour ContinuesFilm Program: The Tour Continues

DESCRIPTION

The Tour Continues is a program of films in which real artworks become an inspiration or a catalyst for the fictional story: dramatic, philosophical, romantic, or ironic. The role of art in these pictures is both unusual and natural—it is an important but often invisible part of our everyday and a tool that allows us to make it poetic; a condition of romance, friendship, and social relationships; daily labor and a therapeutic experience—the form and the essence of human life.  

In a way, museums and other places where encounters between people and art occur are always working and open. They find an extension and embodiment in the everyday, the social structure, the development of human relationships and connections of various kinds—in the very patterns of human life. And, of course, the materiality and the visible aspect of art are but the tip of the iceberg, concealing immense production and labor processes, which are at least as interesting as their results.

The symbolic capital of art extends far beyond the walls of art institutions and does not really belong to them. Art does not begin, nor does it end at the museum, gallery, cinema, or theatre entrance/exit. Its unilinear and often unpredictable path does not lead to the museum as much as it leads from it—back into the big ordinary world and every human's personal worlds.

In this program, films trace this two-way movement in a form that is just as transient, mixing fictional narratives with documentary perspectives, an essay style, free flow of imagination, historical footage, and reconstructions. One of the recurrent themes of this program is that of the flaneur—a perfect symbol for the unstable, invisible and, indeed, disputable boundaries between art and life, the museum and the city, the artist and the public, an art object and an episode from a viewer’s history.

Schedule

Premiere: All the Vermeers in New York

A middle-aged Wall-Street broker, Mark likes spending time in the Vermeer galleries at the Met when he’s off work. One day, he meets a French actress named Anna, who looks exactly like The Girl with a Pearl Earring and leaves her his number. The story about the impossible romance between the world of money and the world of art by the important American experimental filmmaker Jon Jost won the Caligari Film Award at the Berlin Film Festival in 1991. Garage Screen will present the premiere of the restored version.

Premiere: Isadora’s Children

In 1913, the inventor of modern dance Isadora Duncan suffered a tragic loss: her two children and their governess drowned when their car crashed into the Seine. In 1921, Duncan dedicated Mother—an overwhelming dance piece choreographed to the music of Scriabin—to her children. A century later, four Frenchwomen—three dancers and a famous choreographer—are studying the score of Mother. One is trying to choose an appropriate intonation for it, trying to avoid the aestheticization of trauma; the other two, a teacher and a student, stage the piece, while the fourth woman watches the production from the audience. This elegant and mesmerizing picture about dance and cultural continuity won French filmmaker Damien Manivel the Best Director award at the Locarno International Film Festival.

Film screening: Flight of the Red Balloon

A divorced puppeteer Suzanne (Juliette Binoche), hires Chinese film student Song as a nanny for her seven-year-old son Simon. During walks with Song, a big red balloon appears out of nowhere and follows Simon. In the European debut by a key director of the Korean new wave Hou Hsiao-Hsien, shot with the support of Musee d'Orsay, art—represented by puppet theatre, film, and music, references to French painting and cinema—is dissolved in the everyday and acts as a tuning fork for a story of childhood and a family falling apart.

Premiere: Karl’s Perfect Day

An odd-looking European man wrapped in a Roman toga waters his flowers and goes for a morning run, listening to Jay-Z. He gets dressed, puts on a fancy scarf, and cycles around Berlin and its outskirts, meeting friends. This Gentleman is Karl Holmqvist, a Swedish artist and poet who lives in Berlin, and the film presents a day in his life recorded by the Thai artist Rirkrit Tiravanija.

Filmmaker Bertrand wanders through the rooms of Parisian museums, looking for an image of a perfect monster to inspire him for a new movie. In parallel with this, he introduces his creations in the cinematheque, gives interviews, and tries not to notice how a red spot in the shape of a handprint is growing on his back. Antoine Barraud's surreal fantasy explores how life imperceptibly but maniacally duplicates and extends art, adopting and expanding its representation, up to the most terrifying imagery, starring renowned director Bertrand Bonello, the author of Zombie Child, who plays an alternative version of himself.
