Two of the most renowned contemporary experimental filmmakers visited the DFF cinema to present some of their films. Beavers’ RUSKIN roams London, the Alps and Venice with a keen eye for the enigmatic, for architecture and water, approaching the thinking of the art historian John Ruskin. The starting point of THE SUPPLIANT is a Greek statue that Beavers created in a friend’s apartment. LISTENING TO THE SPACE IN MY ROOM documents the montage work on THE SUPPLIANT and is at the same time an exploration of a certain place and its people.
