Der Da Vinci Timecode Gil Alkabetz

For a brief moment we become witnesses of the Last Supper, watching Jesus and his disciples eat, dance, argue and quarrel, before they … shush … freeze to become a static painting again.

For a brief moment we become witnesses of the Last Supper, watching Jesus and his disciples eat, dance, argue and quarrel, before they … shush … freeze to become a static painting again. In his short experimental film, Gil Alkabetz dissects Leonardo da Vinci’s famous fresco into fragments whose rapid montage reveals moments never glimpsed before.

For this experimental work, Thorsten Fleisch exposed thousands of sheets of light-sensitive photo paper to electric discharges of 30,000 volts. This energy, made visible for fractions of seconds, was compiled into an animation, generating a powerful and hypnotic flicker effect. “Energie!” reveals the form and power of the radiation generated by celestial bodies.

Fest Nikita Diakur

A party on the block. Teenagers twitching and jerking to the monotonous drone of techno beats. An ice cream stand bobbing to the beat, too. And then the bungee jumping from the roof of a nearby high rise begins.

A party on the block. Teenagers twitching and jerking to the monotonous drone of techno beats. An ice cream stand bobbing to the beat, too. Barking dogs roaming in front of a hot dog stand. A drone taking off. A mother feeding ice cream to her child. Two men grilling sausages on a hanging barbecue. And then the bungee jumping from the roof of a nearby high rise begins.

In 23 episodes of 25 seconds each, “Please Say Something” portrays the troubled relationship between a sensitive cat and an egocentric mouse. With his idiosyncratic visual language and radical, abrupt dissection of narrative structures, the Irish animation filmmaker skilfully balances between high art and trash, fascination and irritation.
