Combined digital & physical screening on September 30th, 7PM CEST
For the second edition of this seasons FILMFORM RE:VIEW, the two brothers Ashik & Koshik Zaman (founders of the art platform C-Print) has dvelved into the archive with a personal love story as their starting point. The result is shifting patchwork on separation, violence and desire with the alien city as a recurring, narratory backdrop. FILMFORM RE:VIEW is the format where external professionals and institutions from spheres of culture or research are invited to botanize in the collection. Starting off from their specific areas of interest and questions a film programme is curated and thereafter presented as an open screening at Filmform.
This programme is shown in a limited screening format at Filmform in Svarvargatan and simultaneously streamed live at the Filmform website.
Livestream here on September 30 at 7PM (CEST)

You don’t love me yet
Smashed to pieces in the still of the night
“Are you watching WWE Raw?”, he says, sitting down next to me on his couch. “It’s so stupid”, he continues, while jerking his head.
I know it isn’t. And I know it’s only stupid in the context of us. At night sometimes, I’m struck by the urge to film him sleeping with my phone, just to savour the moment of it having happened. That we were once this close. And that I got to watch the ebb and flow of his body breathing in the dark.
Smashed to pieces (in the still of night) reads Lawrence Weiner’s work towering over the city which I’ve come to love. A city where I was a night nurse and merely a visitor, and he always the host. Weiner’s words always used to appear emblematic of us, until his work no longer was and one day ceased from its ground.
Smashed to pieces in the still of the night is a film program curated by C-print which retells in fragments a personal story about lust, struggle, perversion and alienation, by way of the prior storytelling of others. A story which recalls memories from a foreign city in which you loved yourself and the crisp nocturnal air.

C-print started as a non-commercial initiative with the objective to highlight a diversity in artistic expression. While the online journal about contemporary art remains the core of the project, C-print has over time evolved into a curatorial platform, carrying out exhibitions and programming.
