ORACLE

Aaron Poole

ORACLE examines the point in a child’s life when anxiety and fear enter into their operating experience. As home renovations surround them, a boy continues his play and exploration; but the chaos of construction and the preoccupation of his parents is slowly internalized, manifesting in sleep-walking and an abstract fever dream that catapults his consciousness into adult realms of obsession and dread. ORACLE explores the intrusion of adult ideas and obsession into our minds by visually correlating innocence with awe. The film looks at the almost religious role our parents can play in their ministering of a space, and how, in some cases, a new idea may be too big for the family doctrine to contain.

TX - REVERSE

Martin Reinhart, Virgil Widrich

What is behind the cinema screen? It is not surprising that cinema-in-the-cinema scenes are often used in horror films. For they irritate and unsettle by reminding us – the immobile viewers hidden in the cosy darkness – of our own questionable position. What if the forces of unlimited imagination penetrate through the canvas into our reality? What if the auditorium dissolves and with it the familiar laws of cinema itself? In a way never before seen, "tx-reverse" shows this collision of reality and cinema and draws its viewers into a vortex in which the familiar order of space and time seems to be suspended.
