MDD presents:
(...) - Karina Beumer

On Friday evening 21 October, MDD, Kunsthal Gent and Art cinema OFFoff will present Karina Beumer's film (...) in the presence of the artist. Afterwards, the film can also be seen during opening hours on the weekend of 22 and 23 October (starting on the hour)

Synopsis

This absurd non-linear and playful video diary tells the story of (and by) Ron, who has been living with an Aquired Brain Injury (ABI) for 5 years, causing him to get lost and to forget. Ron has documented his whole life in diaries and he is now writing a book about living with ABI. The moment his daughter Karina finds out that Ron forgot about her, she decides to turn his book into a film.

(…) hovers between reality and a manipulation of it. Ron and Karina end up in an adventure about manipulating memories, visualising thoughts, wanting to fill in black holes, obsessively documenting life, and about looking for a language in which they can meet each other without remembering.

Watch the trailer via this link.
