Marie Menken (1910-1970) is de stille heldin van de Amerikaanse avant-garde, tegelijk mentor en muze voor experimentele filmmakers als Kenneth Anger, Stan Brakhage en Jonas Mekas. Naast schilderijen en collages creëerde Menken talloze experimentele kortfilms met haar 16mm Bolex camera. Met haar ritmische visuele gedichten is ze ook een belangrijke inspiratiebron voor de jonge filmmaker Eva Beazar: “Het is alsof je naar bewegend schilderij kijkt. Marie Menken benadert onderwerpen gevoelsmatig en spontaan, met een poëtische blik. Ze heeft een heel eigen manier van denken, kijken en creëren. Haar films zijn onbeschrijflijk mooi: het kleurenspectrum, de tactiliteit, het wisselende ritme. Daar hou ik van!”

On a Hot Summer Day in November

BE • 2018 • 22' • z/w • digitaal

Shall We Dance on the Moon

BE • 2019 • 21' • z/w • digitaal

Eva Beazar: “Ik ben geïnspireerd door dromen, fantasie, kleine bewegingen, chaos, wat je ervaart, het onbewuste. In On a Hot Summer Day In November tracht ik een spanning weer te geven tussen het mogelijke en het onmogelijke, tussen een droomwereld en wat je in de wereld hebt ontdekt. In Shall We Dance on the Moon gaat het me meer om tijdsbeleving en herinnering. De film toont een fictieve wereld vanuit het oogpunt van een kind, met bizarre figuren en vreemde decors. De tijd tikt traag, lijkt soms stil te staan, en spoelt dan weer verder.”
