LILI (2015, 12’) – An van Dienderen
The girl named Lili, resting somewhat cluelessly on a high chair in a film studio, appears to be increasingly bored. She is a China girl. China girls serve as models in the technical exercise preceding the actual filming, namely the calibrating of the colours of the camera and printing process. Can technology itself be racist? An van Dienderen contends that the medium itself should be examined from its technical aspect, because what we consider a norm matters. Be it concerning skin colour, the gender relations involved in the film process or the average beauty standards. (Source: Katarzyna Ruchel-Stockmans)
EXTREME PRIVATE EROS: LOVE SONG (1974, 98’) - Kazuo Hara
An van Dienderen: "This movie is an intimate portrait of the ex-wife of the filmmaker. She is a feminist, headstrong, unconventional lady who goes against seventies Japanese prevailing family morals. The film is delightfully experimental, libertine and simultaneously a reflection on power positions in film making and relationships, tout court."
