Details

The film collection Human Frames is dedicated to the human being, the condition humaine and the various states of mind that accompany man on his journey through life. In the form of ten thematically compiled programmes with 99 works by contemporary artists and filmmakers from Europe and Asia that concentrate on themes such as happiness, desire, madness, fanaticism, fear, anger, isolation, melancholy, the collection re-examines and illuminates human existence at the start of the twenty-first century, including the eastern concept mono no aware (the pathos of things) and impermanence. Human Frames intends to take account of the lively exchange of images and ideas between both continents and provides a well-founded insight into the video art and experimental film scenes. The result is a fascinating spectrum of artistic expression - bold experiments in sound and image, which coalesce in free association to form a vibrant portrait of humanity.

This DVD collector's box set contains all 10 volumes of the Human Frames series (see individual listings for titles of all 95 films included).
