There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.
About two year ago, I met Marlies Poshl in Tehran, an enthusiastic Film/video maker who came for a one month Residency at the Austrian Embassy. the encounter caused a series of conversations which lead to further collaborations, next year during the 5th edition of Limited Access Festival we had the pleasure to invite 2 members from Golden Pixel (Marlies Poshl and Nathalie Koger) to curate a screening program from vienna. Vanishing point was a response to that invitation, and Now LIGHT-METER is a counter program curated from Parkingallery’s Video archive, from Iranian artists question the notion of «Light» in parallel to their various concerns and perspectives using from everyday objects to music and from performance, found footage & Animation to music.
