Details

FRAGIL(E) is a book and DVD that presents 11 Super 8 films by Helga Fanderl, made between 1986 and 2005. The selected films are a small sample of her large body of work which now includes over 200 Super 8 films. Helga Fanderl uses a shoot and cut technique where the act of perceiving and filming are one and the same. There is no post shot editing involved, everything is done in the camera. The films show what's happening in front of the camera as well as the simultaneous logical process of its transformation by using the chronology of the event as cinematographic writing. Helga Fanderl is accustomed to creating programmes of her films that are specific to each screening. These distinct programmes play on the relationship that each individual film have with each other in terms of subject and style and that make up a coherent world of relations and contrasts.
