Scope Session #60 – Shockwaves // Kasumi

scopesessions_pankeculture

Scope is happy to welcome the Berlin Premiere of the film SHOCKWAVES, directed by the video artist Kasumi (USA).

SHOCKWAVES is a 80 minute film that depicts a man’s subconscious mind in the moments before his death, exploring the formation of our memory and collective consciousness. The media artist Kasumi deploys an astonishing 25,000 public domain film samples, rotoscoped and live action film clips, dance choreography, animation and stunning sound design to produce a brilliant, darkly madcap, grotesque, beautiful and transcendent remix of signs, gestures, and actions that underlie meaning within a culture saturated by moving pictures.
As a “dazzling” “metaphorical zeitgeist story,” SHOCKWAVES expresses what film until now has not been able to. It is a genuinely new and original cinematic language that goes beyond images, entering intravenously into our visceral understanding. The liquid blood of cinema.

“Filmmaking is an especially effective means of depicting the labyrinths of our interior lives—that strange alchemy of our subconscious minds that transmutes memories, desires, and experience into the stories that provide each of us a way to make sense of the world. My work is not about showing what happens to you in your life, but what you remember and how you remember it.”
Kasumi

The screening will be followed by a live conversation with the artist.
