SHOW & TELL: SEBASTIAN BRAMESHUBER

MONDAY, DEC 09 2019 - WEDNESDAY, DEC 11 2019

The December installment of Show & Tell at Anthology Film Archives represents a comprehensive survey of the films and videos of Sebastian Brameshuber.

Born in Austria in 1981, and a graduate of the University of Applied Arts in Vienna and Le Fresnoy – Studio national des arts contemporains in France, Brameshuber has moved freely between short films and features, and from frankly experimental formal exercises to documentary portraits of under-represented individuals and cultures (muezzin competitions in Turkey, adolescents in provincial Austria, and Nigerian immigrants in the Alps). This dichotomy is blurred, however, especially since the documentaries unmistakably reflect his preoccupation with probing the difficulties of representation in a world dominated by images. Sociopolitical concerns and questions of form are closely intertwined in Brameshuber’s work, whether he’s creating a structuralist remake of the Lumière brothers’ WORKERS LEAVING THE FACTORY (IN, OVER & OUT) or charting the transcontinental existence of a Nigerian-born mechanic (MOVEMENTS OF A NEARBY MOUNTAIN).
