Here are the first programme hints and confirmed films for Deep Focus.

I diari di Angela – Noi due cineasti, Yervant Gianikian, 2018

After the death of Angela Ricci Lucchi in February 2018, Yervant Gianikian created a moving portrait from her diaries, drawings, footage from their work and many travels together. This personal account is a pledge to continue their lives' work of 'cinematic excavations'.

 

Pwdre Ser: the rot of stars, Charlotte Pryce, 2019

An encounter with a mysterious, luminous substance and the mythical star jelly. Coronal Kirlian photography joined with hand-processed images.

 

 

 

Signatures 
In Signatures we present new work by established makers, auteurs and festival veterans. Yervant Gianikian’s I diari di Angela – Noi due cineasti will feature as part of this programme for IFFR 2019 for example. Past years brought films such as Insect by Jan Švankmajer, La Flor (Parte 1) by Mariano Llinás, and Lav Diaz’s The Woman Who Left.

Frameworks
Launched last year, this programme invites major voices from the art world to show their work to an international film audience. We also ask these names to introduce a young and emerging artist of their choice, whom we call their ‘Acolyte’. Last year, Apichatpong Weerasethakul introduced Thai filmmaker Mont Tesprateep, and Alfredo Jaar’s Acolyte was the Portuguese artist Grada Kilomba.

Regained 
Regained is all about casting new light on existing film material by means of restored classics, films about film, experimental works and installations. In 2018, for example, we showed a selection of films by Dutch experimental film pioneer Frans Zwartjes, who had recently passed away.

Retrospectives
Here we present extensive retrospectives and the filmmaker’s oeuvre. Last year we dove into the work of Argentinian filmmaker José Campusano and Polish artist Artur Żmijewski
