Oberhausen On Tour: Best Of 2011

Thu 27 January 2011 // 20:00

(Thu 27th / 8 pm / £4/3)

The Cube Cinema is proud to present the only UK screening of a BEST OF selection of films from the 56th International Short Film Festival Oberhausen 2011.
In the course of more than five decades, the International Short Film Festival Oberhausen has become one of the world's most respected film events - a place where filmmakers and artists ranging from Roman Polanski to Cate Shortland, from George Lucas to Pipilotti Rist have presented their first films.

Tonight’s programme will show five award-winning and outstanding shorts, ranging in genre from documentary, experimental film, to comedy. And more delights in the bar - short songs and irreverent covers musing about love, drugs and lost tents by Pip Taylor.


Entrevista con la Tierra / Interview with the Earth
Mexico / 2008 / 18 minutes / Nicolás Pereda

A little boy died climbing a mountain with his friend. This short gripping documentary shows how differently his mother and his friend cope with his death. A film about superstition, guilt and atonement in a village somewhere in Mexico.
Ketamin – Hinter dem Licht / Ketamine – Behind the Light
Germany / 2009 / 21 minutes / Carsten Aschmann

Driving through the mountains. The sounds of chords, beauty, art and death echo through the places and elements. The trip ends in the city of Venice which appears exhausted and deserted.

Bensberg September 2009 / Germany / 2010 / 12 minutes / Lea Hartlaub

A detached house on a mountain by Cologne, a station. The earth’s movement is monitored and recorded. An archive in the basement, 54 years stored away in this room. A dial gauge ticking through the old tubes.

Electric Light Wonderland / UK / 2009 / 12 minutes / Susanna Wallin

A mobile disco promising to give you the night of your life.

Oleg / Estonia 2010 / 21 minutes / Jaan Toomik

25 years after his discharge from the Soviet army, a former soldier embarks on a ritual journey to a faraway village graveyard to free himself from haunting memories related to a tragic accident in the army.
