Focused on analyzing the urban landscape as depicted on film, whether full-length, short, documentary or video-art, AN URBAN FILM MAP project can be described as an attempt for exploring and charting the modern city space localized in film, regardless of genre. Images of today’s megacities with their streets, buildings, humans and objects, are mingled to shape a peculiar, multifaceted motif, a moving collage that encompasses public perceptions of times apparently flourishing, fallen apart, on the threshold, motionless etc. Based on an idea by Kika Kyriakakou, AN URBAN FILM MAP had been initially presented as an extended tribute to Athens-in-film during Back to Athens festival (April 2013), with the collaboration of Andreas Kikiras, a film critic, at CAMP Contemporary Art Meeting Point, in the city’s very centre. During ReMap 4 AN URBAN FILM MAP will be presented through 3 individually themed screenings.
The first one includes a selection of 6 “Athenian” short films made by acclaimed Greek directors (Theo Angelopoulos, Theodoros Adamopoulos, Eva Stefani, Gay Angelis, Christina Ioakeimidou, Giorgos Zois). Each film is made on a different decade, starting from the 1960s up to 2010s. Cinematic styles and technologies meet developments on the capital’s urban landscape to create a broader portrayal.
The second screening consists of a series of short video art works made by modern Greek and foreign filmmakers and/or fine artists embedded in a wide range of metropolitan-imaging efforts currently underway in cities such as Athens, New York, London, Barcelona et al.
The third screening will be held in collaboration with Art21, a non-profit organisation for the contemporary art based in New York. Under the title New York Close Up, a selection of short documentaries will be shown, focused on the American metropolis’ current art scene: modern artists resided in NY talk about their work and their relationship with the city, trying to come to terms with the ways that this relationship may affect their creative process. Artists featured on these shorts are Alejandro Almanza, Lucas Blalock, David Brooks, Keltie Ferris, Τommy Ηartung, Kalup Linzy& James Franco, Mariah Robertson, LaToya Ruby Frazier, Erin Shirreff & Tony Smith et al.
On September 8th, at 6 pm. the project will open with the video art section titled An Urban Film Map: Video Art
