Pieta
…a ko.incidental walk through omonoia, the central square of athens,
four days before the national parliament elections of 2007:

a girl lying (because of drugs?) on the ground
a friend (?) tries to help...

from the megaphones we hear a part of the elections campaign of the communist party of greece, with popular, protest songs from the sixties, of mikis theodorakis...

the shot is taken (like always without purpose or plan) on september 12, 2007 at 2:42 p.m. with a normal digital video apparatus


After Caspar David Friedrich
people (like in works of the romantic painter caspar david friedrich (1774-1840))
observes in silence
the demolition of a building in the centre of the city of leipzig...
a ko.incidental documentary take, an (un)usual moment
taken in the year 2005 with a normal digital video apparatus in the city of leipzig


Nostalgia
...a ko.incidental meeting with a fountain in the city of aarau (switzerland)
(shot, taken-like always-without purpose or plan),

wakes up memories of the [video]Flâneu®’s own childhood (back in ’80s greece),
asks questions about the naturality of the digital picture,
meets Tarkovsky’s film nostalghia...

the shot is taken on august 20, 2007 at 2 p.m.
with a normal digital video apparatus

Iraqi film Homeland winning the Doc Alliance Selection Award 2015

Iraqi film Homeland winning the Doc Alliance Selection Award 2015

Homeland (Iraq Year Zero) by Abbas Fahdel has won the Doc Alliance Selection Award. The winning film is composed of two parts – the first was shot before the US army’s invasion of Iraq while the second part captures the post-war events – providing an essential report on the turning point in the country’s development. Instead of shorthand news features on the events in Iraq, it brings an impressive portrayal of life in the country. Director Fahdel received the award at the Locarno film festival.
