TRACES AND TERRITORIES
Drawn from the Filmform and Vidéographe collections, the works in this programme explore the traces that human beings leave – or don’t leave – on the territories in which they settle, and the effect of their absence, destruction or rediscovery on local history, great or small.

Conversation Between Collections:
Through the screening format Conversation Between Collections, two distributors of artists moving images are joined to shed lights on each other’s collections and organizations. With a specific theme as their starting point, the two distributors select works from both their own and the others catalogue and present it in a public film programme. As a result, international tendencies in artists subjects and methods are linked and historical layers are revealed. The works come into dialogue and unexpected encounters open up to new understandings of the arts and ourselves.
