This programme addresses the concept of the fantastic, conceived as an exploration of a reality that is frequently perceived as dark and disquieting. The first session centres on phantasmal spaces and offers little-known contributions of great directors of experimental film (Brakhage, Ito, Mattuschka), and works by young artists (Prim) or more underground but no less important figures (Dabernig, Worden).
