Maybe Nymph

Sunday 1800-1930

Length: 06:02 min

Directed by: Joanna Mamede

Country of Origin: Brazil


A Nymph tries to communicate with a logger who cannot see her. Inspired by the myth of Eco and Narcissus, Maybe Nymph uses the Brazilian Modernist concept of 'Antropofagia'  to address an unequal relationship in different levels; woman/man, colonised/coloniser, oppressed/oppressor. Set in a forest, texts and other interferences disorientate the diegetic time of the film, and bring these characters to a contemporary discussion. 

Joanna Mamede is a Director and Visual Artist from Rio de Janeiro based in London. For ten years, she has been a prominent director working in films, documentaries, and television shows for some of Brazil’s best production companies. In recent years, Joanna has taken her skills and applied them to Visual Arts and Experimental Films.

Sunday 1800-1930

Length: 09:05 min

Directed by: Melpomene Loukanidou

Country of Origin: Greece


The Creator follows her mature self, her simulation, in a walking misty, hallucinatory. The hesitation and the cowardice itself keep it in the unfinished journey. She senses her escape, she realizes it, in this unfinished journey.

To be a man

Sunday 1800-1930

Length: 20:37 min

Directed by: Max Kutschenreuter, Marlena von Wedel

Country of Origin: Germany


Director Statement: The movie encourages the audience to embark together on the quest for masculinity, and by making the story very personal, the film found a universal resonance. To be a man has an open ended finale, where everything has changed, yet everything in the end superficially stayed quite the same. The film raises specific questions but acquiesce in the fact it can’t answer them completely, and by doing so its tone remains down to earth and relatable.

Max Kutschenauter (16.10.1991 Nijmegen), graduated in 2014 from the Gerrit Rietveld academy with two short fiction films (Icarus & Exopterygota) from the audiovisual department to a bachelor of fine arts.

Max frequently collaborates with the Berlin based director Poppy Sanchez and Marlena von Wedel. 
Max' work deals extensively with topics such as: coming of age, gender roles, sexuality, queer experience and femininity. His work can be described as choreographed, mystical, comedic, and introspective. Besides the below filmography Max also created an extensive collection of performance work and film installations. Including drag and dance performances.
