November 20th I will present a live cinema performance in collaboration with Shxcxchcxsh at Serralves Museum in Porto. The show will be part of COLOR SOUND FRAMES, a program dedicated to the intersections between experimental cinema and music.
“Following their world premiere in October, in the 2015 edition of the renowned festival UNSOUND Festival, in Krakow, Pedro Maia and the Swedish duo Shxcxchcxsh are bringing their newly formed collaboration to Serralves. Known for his exploration of analogue film, Maia will present the project, “Imperfect Film”, that pays tribute to celluloid film – the main raw material used by cinema during its first century of existence – offering an exploration of both its qualities and limitations. Based on images collected in 16mm films, damaged by the passage of time, the experience of cinema is brought back to its essentials: light and movement.”
