On March 18th at MAUS HÁBITOS, FEMME SESSIONS receive the BRIGHT SPOTS & PUSHING BOUNDARIES project with the latest animations by the hands of Australian female artists.

In its international cultural work, the Austrian Federal Ministry for Europe, Integration and Foreign Affairs attaches great importance to the role of women in art and society. The Section for Cultural Relations Abroad and the International Tricky Women Festival in Vienna have been cooperating successfully for a number of years, presenting the animated films of Austrian women artists or women artists living in Austria abroad. The Tricky Women film program comprises works of various techniques by already established and internationally recognized women artists as well as by up-and-coming young animation filmmakers—our “rising stars”. What is particularly remarkable about the films is how well the artists succeed in briefly and succinctly summarizing socio-politically important topics. The title of the program, “Bright Spots & Pushing Boundaries” already indicates the artistic orientation of the animated films.

The two previous programs have already traveled to 23 countries and we hope that many new destinations will be added and that women‘s films will become even more visible.

SOLAR MECHANIX 1.1
Austria | 03’28’’ | Animation | 2018
Director: Martina Tritthart

Synopsis
The film „solar mechanix 1.1“ is a variation of "solar mechanix", an ongoing project about the processing of images comprising phenomenons of direct glare and reflections. These images are transformed, applying the essence of the representing pictures in an interplay of light and colour. The light phenomenons turn into sensual geometric objects that interact with the sound track. (Sound by Holger Lang.)

KNAGGLIG
Austria | 02’33’’ | Animation | 2018

A unique story about self-optimization and the struggle with it. Delicate and thoughtful, it explores daily life and surreality with a delightful sense of humor.

ME-LOG
Austria | 06’52’’ | Animation | 2018
Director: Eni Brandner

Synopsis
Me-Log is a reflection on artificial and medial identities that we create of ourselves - how these exaggerated images manipulate our consciousness and influence the perception of ourselves and others. Current technologies such as Motion Capture, Face Recognition and Artificial Intelligence are used to open up a critical view and look behind the surface of the image.

FLY US TO THE MOONS
Austria | 05’35’’ | Animation | 2017
Director: LIA

Synopsis
“Fly us to the moons” is a digitally animated work by LIA with accompanying sound by Damian Stewart. A swarm of forms, reminiscent of alien spaceships or mechanical bats, are suspended in space. Their sweeping movements create layered patterns of smooth curves, jagged edges and digital noise.

THE WET HAIR

Director: Rebecca Akoun

Synopsis
Sophie wants to have curls like her friend Camille, so she steps into the rain, even though her mother forbade her to go outside. Soon Sophie is completely wet and gets severely punished.

LANES
Austria | 05’00’’ | Animation | 2017
Director: Evelyn Kreinecker

Synopsis
People are walking: day by day, by choice or by necessity, seeking happiness, finding uncertainty. Where should – can – must we go?

MUYBRIDGE’S DISOBEDIENT HORSES
Austria | 04’30’’ | Animation | 2018
Director: Anna Vasof
