Programme of short audio-visual works

Even before the coronavirus pandemic, we always sought our own contact with our environment and with ourselves, crossing the abstract, immaterial dimensions of this world, merging the past with the present, and thinking about the future beyond sensuality. But what will happen with touch, with this “unsymbolizable scum of the real” as Žižek would say, which is spreading relations between reality-thoughts and evolving these days alongside voice and gaze. What else will we be able to touch, how will we feel now? Thus, sensitivity and touch in the post-corona period are increasingly intertwined with technology; when we lack sensation, we feel digital, when we crave closeness, there are electrical stimuli. What is/will be true love? 0 = same + ∞ = same. Through pre-existing impressions of sensitivity, the student film program questions the transience, limitation, silence, closeness, voice, touch, pleasure, fears, long before the arrival of the “new corona reality,” which threatens to engulf everything in us, and paralyze an even more uncertain future.
