Zero Degree: The New Image of Thought
Spectrum Presentation + Curated Film Programme
By Esperanza Collado
October 18th to 20th @ thisisnotashop, 26 benburb street, Dublin 7
A three-night event consisting of a film projection series and a presentation of Spectrum fanzine 4th issue, both focused on the question of the interval -as radical difference, irrational cut, and as a last resort, as a means toward a more active role for the spectator- in avant-garde cinema. If cinema is about neuro-physiological vibrations, the image must produce a collision, a nervous wave in order to make thought emerge. The absence of images (the sole presence of a black or white screen) has a decisive importance in contemporary cinema, positing a dialectical relationship between image and its absence.
