Chaos and the Emergent Mind of the Pond (audio only)
24 min 30 sek

Since the 1970s David Dunn has composed music designed to open lines of communication with environments. Dunn recorded this percussive sound world inside small ponds in Africa and New Mexico.

F. Percy Smith (UK)
The World in a Wine Glass
1931, 8 min

The British naturalist and early nature documentary pioneer Percy Smith pioneered the use of time lapse and micro cinematography.

Robert M. Fresco & Kris Paterson (CA)
Mud Flats Living
1972, 28 min

A film on the struggle to preserve the Maplewood Mudflats area in North Vancouver, British Columbia, home of an artistic community which exercised “squatters’ rights.”

Chris Marker (FR), Frank Simeone (US), John Chapman (UK)
1981, 6 min

This meditative documentary was filmed at the Emeryville Mudflats outside San Francisco. Its eerie images appropriate pieces of detritus, turning them into objects of strange beauty.

Sunset Kino is a programme of film screenings in the outdoor cinema pavilion adjacent to the Salzburger Kunstverein. This program runs July 12th to August 23rd on every Wednesday evening at 9 pm. From contemporary horror feature films to short, experimental videos, the focus is on contemporary art and avant-garde cinema with the theme “I am not who I was not.”

Introduced by the invited curator, screenings are about 90 minutes. Picnic tables and a bar are on-site. People can bring or acquire food from Café Cult. Free entry.

Pavilion designed by Erika Hock.
