FOCUS KINOTRON

EN PRÉSENCE DE RUSLANA KOZIIENKO & SERHIY KLYMKO, DU VISUAL CULTURE RESEARCH CENTER À KIEV, UKRAINE

L’exposition “Kinotron” présente un historique des films expérimentaux de la «Kyiv School of Scientific Film», qui a émergé dans les années 1960. Felix Sobolev, porteur de ce mouvement, fut le premier réalisateur à présenter des films scientifiques qui soient à la fois accessibles au grand public, mais présentant aussi un contenu hautement artistique et scientifique.

Kinotron exhibition presents a little-known, yet unique, phenomenon in film history: an experimental works of the representatives of «Kyiv school of scientific film,» which emerged in 1960s around the famous filmmaker Felix Sobolev. His films Seven Steps beyond the Horizon, Me and the Others, etc. were the first to show that scientific film can be popular with the mass viewer, being still an experimental synthesis of art and science. Yet, the vast majority of Sobolev’s visions never became a reality. Sobolev described the idea of kinotron as «a new form of film production,» which would enable a «powerful acceleration» of filmmaking and creative thinking in general. Unfortunately, this idea remained on paper, as well as many other Sobolev’s intentions.

The exhibition juxtaposes his unrealized utopian ideas with the work of «Kyiv school of scientific film», carried out under the conditions of strict bureaucratic control over the film production. These films cover various spheres of contemporary science – from experimental sociology to astrophysics, from political science to cybernetics (special role in Ukrainian scientific film history belongs to its collaboration with the Institute of Cybernetics, founded by Viktor Glushkov in Kyiv). Today, in times of a renewed interest to the ideas of acceleration and technological expansion of human capabilities, the idea of kinotron deserves its late implementation – at least in the exhibition format.

3 screenings that will accompany the Kinotron exhibition will present the works of the directors of Kyiv school of scientific film exploring the limits of human brain, ideological combat and subatomic world.

KINOTRON
CURATED BY OLEKSIY RADYNSKI, RUSLANA KOZIIENKO & SERHIY KLYMKO

“Kinotron is a new form of film production.
The analogy emerges immediately: cyclotron, synchrophasotron, etc.
It’s all about the highest velocities and giant energies.”

From Felix Sobolev archive

A l’occasion du Mapping festival, le Spoutnik invite Kinotron à venir s’installer dans le plus beau cinéma du monde pour une exposition et la projection de plusieurs films issus de la «Kyiv School of Scientific Film».
