眼前的人事物以影像、文字、物件等方式被記錄下,記憶(名詞)就這樣被封存在膠卷、錄影帶、照片、紙張和數位檔案等各種載體之中。但記憶(動詞)也是讓事物可見的一種功夫,頑強地站在與遺忘對立的反抗位置;無論是檔案或拾得、動態或靜態,甚至是塗鴉般的手繪稿,即使在時間的長流中已褪色、扭曲、酸腐、殘破,透過現代科技的重構與虛構下,以新鮮的眼睛加以組裝、疊加、反轉,使塵封於載體中的鬼魅般的回憶逐漸甦醒,在畫面中踢著腿奮力掙扎,在重複講述、重新詮釋、放大勘驗、來回批判的過程中,得到和解、理解與解放。

I'm Trying to Remember

To the accompaniment of a powerful sound score, filmmaker Pegah AHANGARANI uses photographs, videos, and vivid recollections from her own childhood to evoke a collective memory of the Iranian revolution.

Post Modern Korea

In the early 1990s, South Korea started regaining confidence in itself. ‘We hosted one of the most successful Olympic games ever. We are rich enough. Nobody can look down on us now. We are finally SOMEBODY.’ But there was one problem. Korea’s past history, especially in relation to Japan, is something many Koreans wish to forget and erase from the history books if possible. How could Koreans straighten their ‘distorted’ history?

When the Sea Sends Forth a Forest

Images simulated in real time by a graphics engine are interwoven with fragments of archival footage, while telling the story of a Chinese survivor of the Khmer Rouge and reflecting upon how traumatic historical events continue to reshape our present in virtue of today’s narration.

Apiyemiyekî?

An archive of drawings made by the Waimiri-Atroari during their first literacy experience built a collective visual memory from their learning process, perspective and territory, while attesting to a series of violent attacks taking place during the Military Dictatorship.

Cause of Death

Crush, beat, drown, hang, burn. Femicide. Women’s bodies are always at risk. Through archival film footage, animation and spoken word poetry, an experience of structural violence against women is exposed.

Dragooned

Feeling deprived of his status and confronted with a fear of his own disappearance, a man tries to renew links with his vital forces and lost faith through the incantation of a parallel heroic tale. At the very heart of the aesthetic of archival films, the filmmaker expresses the possibility of a vertiginous return of the Second World War into the present.

A Short History

An anonymous narrator recalls historical events as collective memory and national identity formed and collapsed. The film shifts back and forth between two reels of 16mm found footage.

Letter to Jane

Made under the auspices of the Dziga Vertov Group, Letter to Jane is a postscript film to Tout Va Bien directed by Jean-Luc GODARD and Jean-Pierre GORIN. Narrated in a back-and-forth style, the film serves as a cinematic essay that deconstructs a single news photograph of Jane FONDA in Vietnam.

A Pigeon's Song

While reading the diaries of his grandfather, imprisoned during the dictatorship of Hoxa in Albania, the director recognises the pigeon outside his window that kept him company during his incarceration. A short circuit that leads him to reflect on the open wounds of family history.

Still on My Mind

In order to submit a school project to tell a story about myself in 10 pictures, I decided to reminisce about a traumatic event that happened after the 9th King of Thailand passed away.

Malleable Docu/Memory: Archival/Found Footage and More

Once recorded and documented, pieces of memory are sealed in reels, cassettes, photographs, papers and digital files– safeguarded by various forms of carriers. Nevertheless, a process of fading and being forgotten was simultaneously started. In this light, ‘to remember' is then an effort to make it visible, a rebellious act against oblivion, extracting memory from its carrier– be it archival or found, moving or still. Despite faded, twisted, decayed, and broken under the erosion of time, through strategies of reconstruction or fictionalisation, and techniques of collaging, splicing, superimposing, reversing, the apparition of memory thereby revives. Chances are, through re-interpretation and re-examination, the apparition of memory could be liberated and led to a state of reconciliation and further understanding.
