Growth Record 1 & 2 + Hotel Red Shoes

Film still Growth Record 1

screening / video
Thursday 18 February 20:30 Premiere

We are showing three short films by the young Japanese-Belgian artist, Lisa Spilliaert (JP/BE).

In addition to the screening of Growth Record 1, Growth Record 2 will premiere with us. In this long-term project, whose first two episodes are already available, Spilliaert records the growth of a child, whose mother might, as it were, have been the filmmaker herself. She had had sex with the Japanese man who became a father nine months later. Curious about the baby, she decided to photograph the child at regular intervals.

Lisa Spilliaert created a third film project, Hotel Red Shoes, together with her sister Clara. An old, nostalgic Japanese song, 'The Girl with the Red Shoes', and the Red Shoes love hotel in Tokyo together form the decor for mutually shared desire between Belgium and Japan. The film, Hotel Red Shoes, is the two sisters’ reinterpretation of the song.

Aftertalk moderated by Ann Overbergh.
