Details

Radio' 5 short films by Ruth Novaczek. The films reference cinema, and are a fragmented, poetic and maverick take on the experimental film genre. Made mostly with a phone camera, these films form a collection of short compressed works that are noirish and aphoristic; part video-diary, part cinephilic, they work like a video jukebox, or a vinyl album. Set in several cities and landscapes, these films are a mish mash of sound and image that conjure a dreamlike journey into a world inside a radio, where frequencies move in and out of range. 'Ruth Novaczek's films are unlike anything else produced under the dispiriting banner of 'experimental filmmaking' They're more like imagist poems...or the seductive incongruity of one of Joseph Cornell's magic boxes...You want to remember each fleeting fragment of footage, each audio grab, the staccato click of the dial on a rotary phone, the soft snap of a cigarette lighter.' Chris Kraus DVD includes: Episode, 2004 Sense, 2005 Phoneo, 2008 Alibi, 2010 Radio, 2011 RuthNovaczek was born in London in 1956 and has lived in Italy, New York and Tel Aviv, her film and installation work has been shown nationally and internationally.
