Every Tear at Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin, Haus der Kulturen der Welt - 24 August 2019

Mauro Santini has produced a tribute to Mizar, a star in the Big Dipper constellation. Sarah Vanagt replaces her camera lens with a 17th century lens, attempting to rediscover what the first microscopic images looked like. As she films, she wonders how inventors were able to describe what had never been seen before. Natacha Nisic recounts her meeting with an Itako, Nakamura, a Japanese shaman who is blind and communicates with the dead to help the living make peace with them. Inger Lise Hansen films landscapes in the fog in Beijing, Oslo, Newfoundland and the Azores, observing how different film and video formats react faced with particles at the limits of visibility. Sebastian Diaz Morales conveys the multiverse, a hypothetical group made up of potential worlds, including ours. Gathered together these universes are all encompassing: space in its entirety, time, matter, the laws of physics and the constants that characterise them. Here he examines the fantastic, defined as what is mixed up in an unexplained manner with the real thing.
