Thursday 14 April 20:30 - Nina de Vroome (BE) - A Sea Change / Een idee van de zee - avant-premiere I €8/5 read more
A Sea Change takes its audience to the IBIS maritime boarding school in Oostende. In the buildings that looks out towards the sea, boys from six to sixteen sleep, eat and play. They learn how to read the sea, sail with a fishing boat and help haul in the catch. While the fishermen are at work, they observe the by-catch and stare across the deck. In the classrooms, the impetuous sea is captured in maps. On sea maps, there are no storms and there is no time.
Friday 22 April 20:30 - Letter of Complaint & other works by Rachel Reupke (GB) I €8/5 read more
This screening proposes a survey of British artist Rachel Reupke’s moving image works, including the Belgian premiere of Letter of Complaint, which draws on a combination of banal and desperate letters of complaint, in order to communicate something that could perhaps even be called celebratory. Letter of Complaint expands on Reupke’s ongoing interest in the expressive properties of stock images and the ways in which – when coupled with stillness and awkwardness – they respond and transform.

- 13 April - 23 April: Louis Henderson (GB) - Black Code/Code Noir read more
The British filmmaker Louis Henderson seeks connections between colonialism, post-colonialism, new media, archaeology and the writing of history (including through the Internet). His films take place in a frontier territory between documentary and fiction, with Henderson's extensive research taking a prominent role.
Black Code/Code Noir is a collage of fragments, separate from one another in terms of time and space, but which all cast a critical eye on two 2014 murders by police in the American state of Missouri, where Michael Brown and Kajieme Powell lost their lives. Henderson juxtaposes news fragments with smartphone videos dispersed across the Internet as a form of protest and remembrance.
- 27 April - 30 April: Sebastian Brameshuber (AT) - In, Over & Out read more
Scenographer and filmmaker Sebastian Brameshuber (AT) has a sharp eye for human relations and socio-political issues. In, Over & Out consists of a number of meticulously placed shots, recorded by 12 cameras from different technological periods (from 16:9 and 4:3 through to digital format).
For his backdrop, Brameshuber selected Le Fresnoy, the renowned French art school – and production house – with the students in attendance as his protagonists. The video offers a commentary on immaterial labour in today's world.
