STRAY VOLTAGE: Dogmilk x Minikino

Dogmilk Films

17 November 2022–17 November 2022

For this screening, Dogmilk partners with Denpasar-based organisation Minikino to present a program of contemporary Indonesian experimental cinema.

Our program showcases a small selection of contemporary Indonesian cinema and video work. The selected works, though diverse in style, form and tone, share certain thematic and artistic preoccupations. Each film, in their own way, explores and blurs the thresholds between conventionally binary concepts, mining the no-man’s land between life and death, dream states and waking life, spiritual and corporeal, the experiential and the intellectual. The audience will share states of trance and evocative dance work, witness archival documentary, stop-motion and much more. The screening is proceeded by a brief presentation of the Sipakatuo residency program currently in development.

Dogmilk would like to thank Aditya Martodiharj for his assistance in assembling this program.

This screening is presented as part of STRAY VOLTAGE, KINGS Artist-Run’s iterative video program, collaboratively facilitated by Rebecca McCauley and Aaron Claringbold. Looking to the potential that exists between seemingly incompatible ideas, STRAY VOLTAGE premises an experimental program of critically engaged moving image works, fundamentally grounded by the earth.

STRAY VOLTAGE is supported by the City of Melbourne 2022 Annual Arts Grants Program.
