Magic in Early Cinema
Saturday 8.1.2011 11:00
This meeting will be dedicated to the art of magic as it comes to life in the early works of cinema. We will be screening a few short wonderful movies by the brilliant Melies who improved many aspects of film editing.
Afterwards we will screen Ben Hagari’s film Invert; Like a dream in a Surrealist film, Invert presents one day in a world that has been inverted. The human beings and objects in this work are portrayed based on the principle of complementary colors (black turns to white, red to green, blue to orange, and yellow to purple). In addition, light and shadow are reversed (light darkens and shadow become fluorescent). Invert, the figure of the artist painted with negative make up, will try to keep this inverted world in order by performing everyday actions and by teaching his parrot to speak.
