Sylvia Schedelbauer: Films and Masterclass
AG Kurzfilm – German Short Film Association has invited the German-Japanese artist Sylvia Schedelbauer to curate a short film program that she will present in person as part of her masterclass. The event will be an opportunity to discuss her filmic approach, her artistic development, and the influences that have shaped her as an artist. Schedelbauer will frame the curated films with her very first and most recent works: MEMORIES (2004) and OH, BUTTERFLY (2022); two films that use very different formal styles to address similar questions around family myth and secrets. The films that Schedelbauer selected include SEEDS (Philippa Ndisi-Herrmann, KE 2016), THE LAST MANGO BEFORE THE MONSOON (Payal Kapadia, IN 2014) and KICKING THE CLOUDS (Sky Hopinka, USA 2021). All films share an experimental and poetic approach in working with image, sound, music, and storytelling while relating to themes such as history, memory, family, and questions of belonging, place, identity, and dislocation.
Moderated by Anne Turek (AG Kurzfilm – German Short Film Association)
