Today's episode features the first of five conversations between Chloé Galibert-Laîné, Kevin B. Lee and Johannes Binotto, recorded as part of the first exhibition of Filmexplorer’s Video Essay Gallery, “Home Positions”. Filmexplorer, a publication based in Switzerland, invited Chloé, Kevin, and Johannes to each curate video essays centered on various themes. This first exhibition is available on the Filmexplorer website until June 12, 2022.
Episode topics include: "home as the uncanny place of defamiliarization, discomfort in embodiment and memory, trusting the experimental and amateur approach as revelatory, video essay as post-cinematic experience, video-essay as opening the potentialities of cinema, video essay as another form of temporality and the role of community in defining video essay."
A special thanks to the Filmexplorer team, Giuseppe Di Salvatore and Ruth Baettig, for this collaboration.
