Battle – Hüseyin Mert Erverdi (Istanbul, Turkey)

In this experimental animation film, Shodo-Budo and abstract expressionism as well as eastern and western sensibilities of calligraphy and painting, are put to a Zen like dynamic visual dialogue to evoke a feeling of an inner battle. Battle also in a sense a salute to Stan Brakhage’s final film Chinese Series, made during his own battle with cancer, by wetting a filmstrip with saliva and using his fingernail to scratch marks into the emulsion. Battle is about the daily struggle of being in the world. It is dedicated to all the silent and not so silent battles we fought. 2021; 3 min.
