Film as Digital ObjectTalk and Screening

FRIDAY 27 September 2019, 19:00

When films enter the database 0xDB(1) and its underlying software
pan.do/ra(2), they become digital objects. As such, they form part of a
network of interrelated elements that constitute the archival
environment and, at the same time, point beyond it. How does this new
environment affect our way of dealing with moving images? How does it
affect the films and their aesthetics to be embedded in a digital
framework of paratexutal elements? And how do the films, in turn,
influence this framework? What does it mean when the films are shown in
the context of a Pirate Cinema(3) screening? And ultimately: how does
this change not only the way we see the films, but also cinema itself?

Cinema screening.

20:00 Screening Pirate Cinema

Since its inception in 2004, Pirate Cinema has proposed an ongoing
series of works, materials and practices that defy the proprietary logic
of cinema. For this event, we have collected a number of short outtakes
that demonstrate the potential of screening entire archives instead of
films, let us inspect the aesthetics of digital deconstruction and probe
the narrative promises of recombinatory cinema.
