5. Visionär Film Festival Berlin – Encounters With New Talents

KINO SONICO will anhand von zeitgenössischer experimenteller Musik historische Filme neu interpretieren und neu entdecken. Durch den anachronistischen Ansatz will KINO SONICO neue Verbindungen, Kontrapunkte und Spannungsfelder zu einem intensiven Gesamtwerk verdichten. Akkamiau hat sowohl einen umfassenden Background in experimenteller Musik als auch Erfahrung mit Arbeiten, die filmische Elemente enthalten.

Musidora ist vor allem für ihre Rollen in Stummfilmen bekannt, insbesondere für die Darstellung der mythischen Figur in schwarzen Strumpfhosen, Irma Vep, in Louis Feuillades Seifenoper Les Vampires. Musidora war auch als Regisseurin und Produzentin tätig. Viele ihrer Filme gelten als verloren, aber drei wichtige Werke sind erhalten geblieben: Für Don Carlos; Sonne und Schatten und Land der Stiere. Letzteres wurde vom CNC – Centre national du cinéma et de l’image animée – restauriert.

KINO SONICO aims to reinterpret and rediscover historical films through contemporary experimental music. Through its anachronistic approach, KINO SONICO aims to condense new connections, counterpoints, and areas of tension into an intense body of work. Akkamiau has an extensive background in experimental music as well as experience with works that incorporate cinematic elements.

Musidora is best known for her roles as a silent film actress, particularly for her portrayal of the mythical figure in black tights Irma Vep in Louis Feuillade’s soap opera Les Vampires. Musidora was also active as a director and producer. Many of her films are considered lost, but three important works have survived: For Don Carlos – Sun and Shadow – Land of the Bulls. The latter was restored by the CNC – Centre national du cinéma et de l’image animée.
