24 January 2012 / Casco, Utrecht /
With Read-in hosting ‘Reading Film Seminar’ at the exhibition ‘GDR – User’s Manual’, Casco, Utrecht
During the next event in Read-in’s GDR series Eric de Bruyn will elaborate on the paradoxical genre of “reading film”: films that are not only to be viewed but literally read by the performers and/or spectators. He will present clips from, among others, Godard’s ‘La Chinoise’ (1967), Weiner’s ‘A Second Quarter’ (1975), Lamelas’ ‘Reading of an Extract from “Knots” by Laing’ (1970), Frampton’s ‘Poetic Justice’ (1972) and Duras’ ‘La Camion’ (1977). Read-in will explore with Eric de Bruyn how these films attempt to open a space for “reading together,” both within and without the movie frame. Eric de Bruyn teaches in the Film and Photographic Studies Program at the University of Leiden.
