Program at Inkonst Monday 25th

11:30–20.00
Experience
Exhibition: Bird Requiem – Malmö Premiere
Free

Nordisk Panorama is proud to present Bird Requiem, Syrian artist Alqumit Alhamad’s first solo exhibition in Malmö. Building on personal experiences, Alhamad’s work focuses on the psychological and mental effects of war. First hand experience of war and violence in Syria has profoundly influenced the style of the artist, adding a strong notion of symbolism to his work, while still connecting to the stark reality of the world we live in. Everything seen in the paintings have been seen by the artist before either visually or emotionally, and the work has been a central part of Alhamad’s healing process. Alhamad’s art portraits the victims of war as brave, empowered, gentle and loved. It shows us that those suffering from war should not be diminished or victimized, rather seen as breathing and feeling agents, just like us.

Dream Empire (2)
75:- or free with festival pass, book here

Yana is a 24-year-old rural migrant who moved to Chongqing to pursue her Chinese Dream. Drawn by the easy riches of China’s historic real estate boom, she opens a rental agency to help Chinese real estate developers market their new properties to foreigners. But the business takes a dubious turn as her foreigners are increasingly used in a surreal effort to turn remote rural ghost towns into “”globalized booming cities”” on the days when outside investors and political leaders visit. As the real estate bubble pops, Yana is forced to sell her company and reassess everything she believed in. Shot over several years, the film is both a personal history and an on-the-ground chronicle of one of the most critical economic issues of our time.

Experience
VR short: Ego cure
Free

“EGO CURE” is a narrative virtual reality short film following a contemporary dance choreographer’s struggle to create a contemporary masterpiece, while facing a group of disinterested dancers, her unpleasant producer and the otherworldly curator – and simultaneously facing her own inner demons. The film is set in a world where the perception of art as a product has come to its logical technological conclusion: if the artist is unable or unwilling to provide a commissioned art piece, the investor has the right to extract it from their unconscious mind – using the EGO CURE device.”

Liberation Day (2)   75:- or free with festival pass, book here

An enigmatic figurehead, a hidden strategist behind the throne, an elegant first lady, loyal foot soldiers, a merciless power struggle backstage, symbols, uniformity, the screaming millions of followers – dictatorship or rock band? Nuremberg rally or Band Aid? Collaborative art performances involving Laibach and the North Korean authorities over a number of years established trust, so it seemed worth the try to bring them together.

Industry Seminar
Greening the Film Industry
Accreditation

Environmentally friendly practices can be implemented in the workflow of any film production, from short or low-budget films all the way up to high-end TV drama series. The number of films currently being produced in a green and sustainable way in Europe is very limited – but we can quickly change this! This one-hour seminar will feature producers and film fund managers sharing and discussing green actions and tools. A comprehensive overview of sustainable approaches and practices in film production is presented in the 2017 CineRegio Green Report, which will also be presented at this event.

Out of Thin Air (Iceland/ UK, 2017)
Dylan Howitt
In the early 1970s, Iceland was considered an idyllic place. Crime was rare, murder even rarer. Then two men disappeared under suspicious circumstances. Foul play was suspected. The country demanded the crime be solved, and the police launched the biggest criminal investigation Iceland had ever seen. Finally, six people confessed to two violent murders and were sent to prison. It seemed that the nightmare was over. But in many ways the nightmare had just begun.
