  • Description (english) Experimental Cinema and its filmmakers have had a long history of creating visual portraits of their friends, collaborators, lovers, comrades-in-arms, families, etc. There have been always two active planes in these portraits: a camera with a filmmaker behind it and (a) person(s) in front of the camera. Between them ‚ the space, where an intimate trustful interaction is evolving and taking an audio-visual shape. “Here and now” for the participants shooting the film, “there and then” for audiences watching it after. The moments of relatedness, captured and transmitted in time and space, become reminiscences of people’s lives and feelings towards each other, an affect recorded on celluloid. “Passive/Aggressive” is a rhizomatic audio-visual portrait of queer friends who are living a life challenging the heteronormative assumptions, in an attempt to reverse mechanisms of power relations and to negotiate the base of relatedness. Our extended union is reassembled in the fictionalised space of the film celebrating our wildness and queerness. the full KRUPA album is here:
