As atmosferas que ventam

TÍTULO: As atmosferas que ventam


As imagens ventam, se dizem deslizar do ar entre as árvores, se dizem sensações insondáveis para o ouvido humano, lampejos entre os galhos e luzes cintilantes que Mikel Guillen & Scott Barley fazem proliferar, como algo quase insuportável, mas que devemos abraçar. Imagens frágeis, ínfimas e gigantes, feitas sussurros que emaranham os limites entre as flores, toda uma anima botânica em explosão de cores que Wolfgang Lehmann cuida sigilosamente com o jardim audiovisual que semeia. Toda uma percepção esfumaceante, de nevoeiros e atmosferas outras onde, como nos diz Pierre Villemin, podemos apreender o mundo de modo mais imediato, mais incerto, mas mais próximo, mais alucinado, mas mais verdadeiro. Novos corpos perceptivos onde o humano escoa e deixa passar o cosmos sem resistência.

“The Sadness of the trees” de Mikel Guillen & Scott Barley (2015)

Two separate, yet poetically connected films that act as a threnody on nature; with the trees as silent observers to Man’s insidious desolation.

“Traces of garden” de Wolfgang Lehmann (2016)

Since Wolfgang Lehmann’s previous film, the stroboscopic mosaic DRAGONFLIES WITH BIRD AND SNAKE, offered a tour de force to the retinas of brave viewers, it’s surprising to see this jump into the mild and pictorial tone featured in TRACES OF GARDEN, a return to the woods in which the director seemingly tries to update the closeness with nature of the first impressionist painters. For 70 minutes, Lehmann’s new film takes us through a path of decomposing treetops guided by a constant tweeting of birds, and
shows off a delicate hand that calls upon new rhetorical figures like glitch and pixels, digital deformations from which he extracts an unexpected lyrical quality. (Fran Gayo, BAFICI Festival) „ … The result is a cinematographic trip with great aesthetic value, a state of lyric meditation in which the invariable is the intertwined couple in a bewildered stream of nature.” (Josefina Sartora; Otros cines & claroscuros-imagenysonido; april 2016)

“From the side of immediate reality” de Pierre Villemin (2017)

Extracts of texts, conferences, interviews, speeches… this movie like a « fit of bad temper” expresses a certain form of our society which became complex, between false technological progress, to propaganda, to addiction, to marketing and to a surge… At end, a conclusion as a fiction of the science towards a world better …
