The shortfilm reel is guest-curated by our cooperation partner Lowave and a special panorama selection that announces a bigger curatorial film project of the same name. The Human Frames cycle presents a series of ten film programs examining the human condition through experimental film and video art. Comprising both contemporary and archive images from across Asia and Europe, this project is inspired by the ancient theory of humoralism as a framework by which to analyze certain aspects of the human character. It focuses on ten emotional states – melancholy, fear, anger, fanaticism, isolation, madness, euphoria, courage, desire and mono no aware – and depicts the timeless and universal panoply of human tempers that lay beyond national, social and cultural affiliations.
For Asian Hot Shots curators Silke Schmickl and Masayo Kajimura present a selection of works by Asian artists.
