Zowat twee keer per kalenderjaar toont De Imagerie unieke films van zowel beloftevolle makers als meer gevestigde namen in het Belgische documentaire, politieke en experimentele filmlandschap. De makers zijn steeds aanwezig en brengen naast hun eigen werk inspirerende films van andere makers mee om in dialoog te treden met het publiek.
Visite goes all out during the 11th edition of the festival by inviting the famous American video artist Peggy Ahwesh. In the 80's she started her career making feminist punk and amateur super 8 films. She is known for her use of a wide range of different technologies, methods and aesthetics and her work has been extensively shown at Centre Pompidou, MOMA, Guggenheim, Whitney Museum of American Art, Anthology Film Archives, New York Film Festival and now also at Het Bos in Antwerp. Ahwesh' films are accompanied by works by artists who have inspired her over the years and by films and performances by local makers who touch on similar themes with their work.
The programme includes intimate conversations between girls, woman and children about caring, sexuality and gender norms. You will be confronted with horror tropes that insinuate their way into our lives unnoticed and we’ll invite you to an extravaganza that will set your senses on fire
Visite is a production of De Imagerie, supported by Het Bos, SIC, Cinematek, KASKlezingen, zwartopwit duurzaam drukwerk, Vlaanderen/Verbeelding werkt & Nationale Loterij.
