The Oberhausen Short Film Festival Tour International Competition 2012
Sunday June 2, 2013, 7:30 pm
Los Angeles Filmforum presents
The Oberhausen Short Film Festival Tour  International Competition 2012

Tickets: $10 general, $6 students/seniors; free for Filmforum members.  Available by credit card in advance from Brown Paper Tickets or at the door.

The Internationale Kurzfilmtage Oberhausen comes to Los Angeles.  Oberhausen, Germany hosts what is probably the world's leading festival for short films, and Filmforum is bring two of their programs from 2012 to Los Angeles.  Filmforum remains committed to bringing the best art films from around the world to Los Angeles.  We hope that you will join us as we look at some of the leading contemporary work.  To the best of our knowledge, these are all Los Angeles, and West Coast premieres, and some might be US premieres!

In this program of selections from Oberhausen's International Competition, six documentary and experimental video works (for the most part) take a close look at human and animal behavior. In Finland, the elk and the elk whisperer stalk each other until the final showdown, while Elodie Pong playfully riffs on the term "Ersatz" in a dialogue between two people. In "Snow Tapes", winner of the Grand Prize of the City of Oberhausen, stones are cast at young Palestinians. What is fiction here, and what is documentary? The diversity of current international short film production is just waiting to be discovered in this program. www.kurzfilmtage.de
