The average westerner requires 70 centimeters of personal space in front of them. NewYorkRioTokyo e.V. and Ex’N’Pop are proud to present films exploring the domain of psychological personal space. The hour-long program includes the works of 9 experimental filmmakers from the United States, Israel and Germany.
Personal space is often defined as the invisible borders people build for themselves. Within these films, the authors invite the viewer to cross and breakdown these borders, explore the delicate line, or exclude them as outside entities. Whether exploring a relationship to a hereditary disease, the landscape of a deserted construction site, or the relationship of two strangers, each work expresses the idea of simply being allowed to watch or being invited to get involved.
70cm includes works from internationally renown as well as up and coming artists: Diana Arce (USA), Bill Brand (USA), Sari Carel (Israel), Joel Devalcourt (USA), Joseph Dwyer (USA), Anne Haydock (USA), Jennifer Myers (USA), Corinna Schnitt (Germany), and Vanessa Woods (USA).
