BEYOND – AN AFRICAN SURF DOCUMENTARY, AUT 2017, 111min, documentary, director: Mario Hainzl, original version w/ German subtitles
With Jocick Pitol, Alfred René Noser, Sam Bleakley, Papa Magatte Diagne, Armando Lambra, Joseph Dieatta, et al.

BEYOND takes us along the coast of Western Africa, from Morocco and the Western Sahara to Mauritania, then to Senegal, Gambia and the border of Guinea Bissau. The film tells the viewer at eye level about the life plans, realities and dreams of its protagonists. Glittering waves, popular surfing spots, untouched beaches in restricted military zones and Senegal’s Sine-Saloum region, filled with mangroves, are its magical locations. Surfing and board culture fuse with the local youth’s forms of expression. Surfing and travel serve to link the protagonists and their stories with the audience through the screen.

Camera: René Eckert, Felix Gänsicke,
Roman Königshofer, Mario Hainzl
Editor: Yuri Rechinsky, Sebastian Funk
Music/OST: The Quiet Now
Sound design: Christofer Frank
Producer: Valentin Renoldner
Produkcion: Andreas Jaritz, Tommy Pridnig,
Peter Wirthensohn
Production coordinator: Vanessa Kröll

Mario Hainzl and Andreas Jaritz took a look at the international surfing scene in their debut film, “The Old, The Young & The Sea,” which was released in 2013. In Northern Spain, Chile and Senegal the two filmmakers employ their filmic gaze in BEYOND to show surfing as much more than just a hobby, opening up various environments and creating new approaches.

“If the film gives some viewers the sense of seeing more than this huge continent south of Europe which seems to be very far removed in terms of geography and culture, and encourages them to think about stories involving people who live like we do in Europe instead, then we’ve achieved our goal. The film doesn’t search for exoticism where you might be able to find familiarity. It’s a product of empathy, curiosity and friendships.... BEYOND is a film about change. And about self-image and images of foreign cultures, about generational conflicts, but also about dreams. The dreams of people who make them come true beyond common ideas about Africa and often under difficult conditions.” Mario Hainzl

DIE_ANDEREN_BILDER, AUT/DEU/FRA 2018, 17min, short, director: Iris Blauensteiner, original version

A hard drive, 2.8 terabytes, data left over from a project worked on a decade ago. In 2008 filmmaker and writer Iris Blauensteiner made her first short fiction film, and now she’s taking a look at the remaining material: outtakes, photos, audio files, emails, portions of the screenplay, ideas that were abandoned. The data was archived carefully, but time has left traces. Old formats can’t be played, current equipment isn’t compatible. Playback errors and visual interference make easy reminiscence impossible; the sounds and images are no longer what they were. Hauntingly magical scenes are created from the digital leftovers and errors, forcing their way into the range of the audible and visible.

In Manila, the world’s largest outsourcing location for content management, tens of thousands of people delete photos, videos and texts for technology corporations in ten-hour shifts. Decisions regarding censorship or whether content is made visible are outsourced to these content managers. Which criteria are employed for the work of these employees, most of them quite young, is one of the best-kept secrets of their bosses. The documentary shows these people at work, surfing the web with them during their daily routine, clicking from internet cleaning crews in Manila to Los Angeles, London and Berlin.

DAS BIN NICHT ICH, DAS IST EIN BILD VON MIR, AUT 2018, 10min, short, director: Christiana Perschon, original version

Making an object based on a photograph involves adding dimensions such as space, time and continuity. Skewers, hairpins and nails were the tools of self-liberation in Karin Mack’s 1977 photo series “Zerstörung einer Illusion,” which was produced with a self-timer and processed manually in a darkroom. Forty years after its creation a new perspective transforms examination of the prevailing self-image and belief of women’s role at the time into a three-dimensional object and sets it in motion. Light and rotation create an illusory perceptual horizon that’s inherent to filmmaking and make the living shadows dance in the delirium of the real.

Reiner Holzemer is a German director, cameraman and producer and has already portrayed the photographers William Eggleston and Juergen Teller in documentaries. For the first film about the darling of the fashion scene, Dries Van Noten, Holzemer required more than three years from the initial contact to the final decision to begin shooting

“I shot most of the film myself, meaning that I also operated the camera. He wanted it to be a little more intimate and not to have a huge team working around him. I wanted to show with this look at his private life that with an all-round creative person, it doesn’t make a difference whether he assembles a bouquet of flowers at home or designs a piece of clothing.” (Reiner Holzemer in an interview with Saskia Ibrom, “Vogue,” June 2017)

In cooperation with Maria Oberfrank, who will be present.
