Super Natural (Jorge Jácome, 2022)
Screening and introduction
Kseniia Bespalova ("Programmer of the Future" at Eye Filmmuseum)
Super Natural explores movement and the relationality of bodies, inviting a viewer for a guided meditation. Being initially conceived as a live performance, the film is based on the choreography of performers - some of them disabled. It investigates the potentiality of bodies, which merge with the material space, with landscapes, with living and non-living beings, inventing new forms of the possible. Throughout the film, viewers are guided by the voice whose exhausted language is pure sound translated into words in the subtitles.

Ticket of No Return (Urlike Ottinger, 1979)
Screening and introduction
Jeffrey’s underground cinema
In the 1970s in Berlin was a special place... it had its own way of doing things, its own humor. It was the German capital of subversion, or maybe the European one. It was daring, abrasive, wild, but also inventing its own aesthetics and vision. There are very few authentic feature films that came out of that subculture that can be found today, but this is one of those forgotten gems.

Conceptual canal boat tour
Rocco Enzo Ter Haar, Ege Yılmaztürk, Eric Peter, Bethany Crawford and Bogna Bochniska
From the bowels of Amsterdam, five separate boat tours expand on collective storytelling. With each tour an own performer from a specific narrative stream, they sail via stories through the city's canals. These canals become the places of excretion and disposal of hegemonic histories, purging the way for new realities and futurities to be conceived of from the collective imaginary. From a being in rather than a look upon, the performers and participating public exchange stories and thoughts woven from the immediate surroundings and relationality with one another. The boat functions as a vessel for reimagined futures, whereas the canals are the pathways of an anarchist world wherein the unvoiced become forefront and echoed. Narratively guided and skippered with the Amsterdam based artists Rocco Enzo Ter Haar, Ege Yılmaztürk, Eric Peter, Bethany Crawford and Bogna Bochinska.
