A PROPOSAL TO PROJECT IN SCOPE

In her A proposal to Project in Scope, Viktoria Schimid has skilfully opted for a minimalist mise en scène in order to show us a kind of Eden, an ideal world where nature in its purest sense blends well with something that man himself has created. And what results is a total, perfect harmony. A harmony that can only be observed in religious silence, without the need for words or redundant captions, but with a directorial approach that closely recalls the cinema of James Benning and is extremely reverent towards what it wants to show.

WHY NOT YOU

Why not you, Evi Romen’s debut feature, focuses mainly on objects. Be it a funny wig symbolising an identity to be revealed or even just a quick selfie on a mobile phone. They are apparently insignificant objects that recur frequently throughout the feature film, immediately taking on a highly symbolic meaning.
