JESPER JUST, SERVITUDES
(DNK 2015, 2K, 9’, NO DIALOGUES)
Cast: Dree Hemingway
The film only has a single camera position but a complex subject. It investigates the balancing act of identity, femininity and the clichés of sensuality and erotic – and thus, the dominant culture of youthfulness and beauty that exists in today‘s world.

ERIK VAN LIESHOUT, DIE INSEL
(NLD 2016, HD, 38’, DUTCH-GERMAN-ENGLISH)
Art eccentric Erik van Lieshout uses his contribution to the exhibition Emscherkunst 2016 in the Ruhr Region, curated by Munich art professor Florian Matzner, to create a clownish parody about selfdiscovery and the infi ltration of government agencies. Every day for four months, he visits a small island in the middle of Dortmund‘s Phoenix Lake, a surreal environment consisting of the lake, expensive apartment buildings, workers‘ quarters and office blocks. He is accompanied only by Ahmad, a Syrian refugee, whose biography he simultaneously tells.

Rachel Maclean, It’s What’s Inside That Counts, 2016, 30’ © Rachel Maclean / HOME Artist Film. Commissioned in partnership with HOME, University of Salford Art Collection, Artpace, Zabludowicz Collection, Tate, Frieze Film and Channel 4 Random Acts.
RACHEL MACLEAN, IT’S WHAT’S INSIDE THAT COUNTS
(GBR/USA 2016, DIGITAL, VIDEO, 30’, ENGLISH)
A hefty parody of our digital reality in the typical Maclean Horror-Barbie look, coproduced by Channel 4 and the Tate Gallery. The supermodel-like figurehead of a greed-driven data provider is stalked by the leader of a band of guerrilla hacktivist rats. Their aim is to disrupt and gorge upon the addictive invisi-juice that powers phones and tablets, gnawing on bandwidth cables like sugar cane to suck at the sweet nectar within. Above ground, the citizens are infected with a plaguelike lethargy. It turns them into zombies who stumble around in stained bed clothes looking for ever greater connectivity, totally disconnected from non-virtual reality.
Born in 1987 in Edinburgh, lives in Glasgow. She studied Fine Arts at Edinburgh College of Art. Solo and group exhibitions a.o. at Tate Britain 2016; Zabludowicz Collection, London 2014; Collective Gallery, Edinburgh 2013; Trade Gallery, Nottingham 2013. In 2013, she received the Margaret Tait Award at the Glasgow Film Festival. In 2017 she will represent Scotland at the Venice Biennale.
Selected films: Feed Me (2015), The Weepers (2014), Random Acts (2011)
