See international short films and video works and hear the soundtracks broadcasted over Radio X 91.8FM from 20:00 to 23:00 on your own car radio at the Land’s End Drive-In Film Show.
The Land’s End Drive-In Cinema is a one day urban intervention as part of our «Spatial Stories« programme for 2005. Land’s End will create a temporary drive-in cinema for the night of 29th October 2005 in the Offenbach Port.
This port is currently being cleared by the Projekt Hafen Offenbach to make way for a mixed business and residential development and exists currently as a kind of no-mans land. Our objective for this location is to plant a series of events to act as what we call «cultural roots« for the new city quarter. It is our proposal that some of these events may mature, to be later taken on and integrated in the new quarter in an appropriate form.
The intention of the Land’s End Drive-In Cinema is to show short films, both local and international, in this open-air urban setting using the existing infrastructures. Due to the temporary nature of the event the soundtracks are to be transmitted simultaneously over the radio so that the viewers can tune in with their car radios. This also opens up the programme to another pure audio dimension for those who are not at the drive-in itself. The remote transmittal of the soundtracks over the radio may also lead to unavoidable tensions in synchronisation.
We have invited submissions of short films, video and video art up to 30 minutes in length. Apart from the quality of the film or video, the jury was looking for submissions which deal creatively with the fact that the soundtrack will be sent live over the radio, silent films were therefore not be considered.No other restrictions applied to the genre of submitted works.
The selected works include pieces from: LAWRENCE ENGLISH / DANI GAL / MARTIN FLEMMING / KEVIN SLAVIN / NIRA PEREG / SHANNON BOOL / KERSTIN CMELKA / LOUCHEL LAUDEC / DAVID CAMPION & TANYA SKUCE / JEREMY TURNER (SOUND) / ANTON BELIN / JARED GRADINGER / BERNHARD SCHREINER / HEIDE DEIGERT / DANIEL KOHL / CRONICA (ESSAYS ON RADIO: …): ISABEL ABREU & RITA BARBOSA / PAL (SOUND) / SARA KOLSTER / PAWEL GRABOWSKI (SOUND) / MARIUS WALTZ / @C SOUND / ERICH BERGER / PURE (SOUND)
