Rise

Bárbara Wagner & Benjamin de Burca | Kanada, USA, Brasilien 2019 | 20’30“ | Experimentalfilm | Köln-Premiere
Shorts on Wheels

In the underground spaces of the Toronto new subway extension, a group of poets, rappers, singers, and musicians negotiate their status as both first and second-generation Torontonians as well as settlers living on borrowed Indigenous land. ‚Rise‘ looks at rhythm and poetry as forms of creative labour that constitute contemporary collectivities of diasporic belonging and mixed-cultural dialogue: the call-and response, the recitative, and the cypher.

Biographie

Bárbara Wagner (Brasília, 1980) and Benjamin de Burca (Munich, 1975) develop a collaborative practice with the ones they portray. Their films take the form of musicals that defy conventional notions of genre as the fictional and documentary dimensions become hybrid in order to establish a third language-territory. Among their recents shows are 67th, 68th and 69th Berlinale, 32nd São Paulo Biennial, 5th Skulptur Projekte Münster and 58th Biennale di Venezia.
