Kino Climates - Evenings


Kino Climates First Programme

Compilation of shorts (86’)

Among the many projects the Kino Climates network would like to launch, one consists in curating, collectively, compilations of short films which could tour Europe, reflecting the liveliness of independent cinema screened locally throughout the year. Here is a first attempt resulting from an encounter in Newcastle, at the magical Star and Show in 2011. “More energy than coherence” was the motto when selecting these short films where humor, lightness and fantasy are often present.

Open Screen

Special Kino Climates

The Open Screen is a regular event, started fifteen years ago, right at the beginning of Nova. Anyone from the audience can bring along his/her short film, as long as it is not longer than 15min, and get it projected on our big screen. Tonight, the Kino Climates participants will also be able to present their own shorts, knowing that, exceptionally, we have added a new requirement: the films should be in English, or with English subtitles, or with no dialogues…

09.06 > 21:00

Hyperbang comes from Grenoble, a French city that has been experiencing for about twenty years an extraordinary effervescence in the film and experimental music sectors. This sound and visual performance has the physical and emotional dimension of a real show. While Gaëlle Rouard skilfully manages 16mm projectors, Christophe Cardoen is the crazy assistant who mixes image/light games and David Chiesa plays the bass and uses an extended piano by way of an instrument in order to create a fascinating live sound composition. Don’t miss out!

Color Cinema & Technicolor

Leçon de cinéma

The history of color cinema is nearly one hundred years old and is still evolving thanks to several technological innovations as well as to cultural influences and major economical issues. Created in 1915, Technicolor has dominated the film industry for a long time thanks to trichromy, a special three-colour process which provides intense and flaming colours (very stable over time). Jean-Pierre Verscheure, a distinguished cinema historian and collector, will illustrate the various steps of the evolution of Technicolor through several extracts from his personal collection of 35mm films.

12.06 > 20:00

A surprise event: an original Technicolor & Scope film… Shhht, we can’t tell you the title yet!

12.06 > 22:00

Guillaume Maupin (from the Nova team) hadn’t turned the ticket office in the hall of the cinema into a human jukebox for quite a long time...! With his acoustic guitar and with no score, Guillaume sings hits and rarities/pearls selected by his audience, ranging from excellent to trash pieces within his wide repertoire of about 200 tracks!

Live Soundtrack

Married to Himself

Matthieu Ha got married to himself in Bangkok on December 21 2010, following the precepts of his “manifeste de Paix de Bangkok" (manifesto for peace in Bankok). Since then, Matthieu Ha professes his non-dogmatic faith towards global peace through live soundtracks of films he also directs. This evening, with his accordion, his groove-box, his extraordinary voice and with Frédéric Chemama as a scenographer and projectionist, Matthieu Ha will be accompanied by Grégoir Tirtiaux on baritone saxophone. He will invite us to take a shadowy trip that will absolutely astonish the audience!
