About the programme:

1.00-2.00pm: Signer’s Koffer (Peter Liechti, 1996)
“Signers Koffer is a kind of road movie across Europe, from the Swiss Alps to Eastern Poland, from Stromboli to Iceland… Roman Signer determines the route, and the film improvises along the way. Signer brings the film’s locations alive using his favourite instruments – gunpowder, fuses, rubber boots, balloons, stools, small tables … and a three wheeled Plaggio. Signers Koffer is also a journey through a state of mind – a tightrope walk between fun and melancholy.”

3.00-6.00 Omnibus screening:
Roman Signer:
The Super-8 films, 1975-1989

Born from Roman Signer’s experiments with everyday materials and natural forces in the landscapes around his home town of St Gallen, Switzerland, his Super-8 films – simple, transparent, surprising, beautiful, hilarious, absurd and grave – are one of twentieth-century artists’ film’s greatest glories. This programme presents them all in chronological order. Visitors are free to come and go during screenings. However, be warned! Some films pivot on super-fast changes and surprise events – blink and you may miss them…
