Details

Ladislav Ivan Galeta from Zagreb is the neo-Platonist among European experimental film directors. Galeta hides a true chamber of wonders behind the clear, mathematically abstract structure of his films and videos, meticulously compiled rhythmically frame for frame, each work likewise presenting an analysis of the film medium. Concealed therein, culled from deep in the medium's prehistory, are hermetic parallel universes in whose number ranges and symbolic spaces, Galeta’s precisely constructed film compositions find a formalist anchor.' - Georg Schollhammer 'The term experimental film is often used as a general label for creative works that have no connection at all with scientific or real experimentation. With Galeta’s entire creative phase we are confronted with the conduct of a true experiment, a meaningful psychological experiment an experiment inquiring into perception.' - Hrvoje Turkovi This DVD contains: TV PING PONG, 1976-1978, 2 min TWO TIMES IN ONE SPACE, 1976/1984, 12 min SFAIRA 1985-1895, 1984, 10 min WATER PULU 1869 1896, 1987/1988, 9 min WAL(L)ZEN, 1989, 6 min PIRAMIDAS 1972-1984, 1984, 12 min Born 1947 in Vinkovci, Croatia. He graduated from the Pedagogical academy in Zagreb, in 1969, in visual arts, and in 1981 from the Faculty of Letters, the department of pedagogy.
