SYNOPSIS

In einem Feuerwerk von digitalen Selbstportraits wurden Hunderte von idyllischen, peinlichen und schrecklich verstörenden Selfies zu einer einzig-artigen Kurzfilmkomposition arrangiert. Die künstlerisch nachbearbeiteten Einzelbilder ziehen sich zusammen zu einem schauerlichen Grinsen, das den Abgrund menschlicher Existenz über-strahlt.


In a veritable firework display of digital selfport-raits, hundreds

of quaint, embarrassing and dread-fully disturbing selfies were arranged in a unique short film composition. Single photos, artistically reworked, consolidate to form a ghastly grin that outshines the abyss of human existence.


Un feu d’artifice d’autoportraits où des centaines de selfies idylliques, affligeants ou terriblement inquiétants sont agencés en un court-métrage à la singulière composition. Artistiquement re-travaillées, les photos individuelles se fondent en un terrifiant rictus qui éclaire l’abîme de l’existence humaine.

AWARDS 2018

Baden

FANTOCHE 16. Int. Festival für Animationsfilm, CH

•  High Swiss Risk

Jury - Laudatio: «Dieser Film fängt die Selbstsucht der modernen Gesellschaft ein und zeigt auf, was wir über uns selbst nicht sehen und hören wollen: Unser eigenes Verhalten.» 

•  Swiss Youth Award

Jury - Laudatio: «Selfies gibt einen allgemeinen Überblick über unsere Gesellschaft und deren Dekadenz. Es hat uns gefallen, wie uns vorgeführt wird, wie wir durch unseren Newsfeed blättern, ohne wirklich etwas zu beachten. Dies ist aktuell   für die junge Generation. Uns gefiel auch das schnelle Tempo und das Crescendo von Situationen und Themen: Sex, Tod, Geburt. Dieser Film zeigt eindrücklich, was Social Media mit uns macht.»

Jury - Laudatio: «Selfies’ is a short film that sends a critical message towards our society today, where everybody feels the urge to photograph every moment to certify that what they experience is really happening. And, above all, it is a film where life appears pointless, in its positive as well as negative aspects, if it is not part of a selfie, however absurd this may be

Jury - Laudatio: Por otro lado, Selfies, cortometraje de animación suiza, dirigido por Claudius Gentinetta, toca un tema muy pertinente, pues nos muestracómo hoy día estamos viviendo a través de un celular mientras evadimos, en muchos casos, la realidad. Debemos resaltar en este filme su rauda editión, como si el ciclo de la vida no fuera más que una rápida sucesión de selfies, lo cual, sumado a la forma planar de la animatión misma, nos hace ver, a los sujetos contemporáneos, como una absurda fantasmagoría.

•  Bester Animationsfilm

Short Animated Film Competition

Jury - Laudatio: Claudius Gentinetta und sein Team schaffen mit einfachsten Mitteln einen Film, der in 4 Minuten eines der großen Phänomene unserer Zeit umreißt: die Selfie-Sucht. Was an gemalten Selfie - Fotos und Selfie- Videos interessant sein kann, erkennt man schnell: es handelt sich bei diesem Film um eine gekonnte Persiflage auf zwanghafte Selbstdarstellung; die Bilder galoppieren mit uns quer durch verschiedene Gesellschaftsschichten und Erdteile, durch privaten wie öffentlichen Raum, von der Dokumentation zur Selbstentblößung, vom allzu Bekannten zu wahnwitzigen Auswüchsen unserer digitalen Abhängigkeit. Da filmt sich ein Vater im Kreissaal, während im Hintergrund sein Kind auf die Welt kommt, auch das Neugeborene hat schon seinen eigenen Selfie - Stick in der Hand.
Die digitale Abhängigkeit ist fixer Bestandteil unserer Zeit, Instrument der Konsumwelt, und beeinflusst längst unser Fühlen und Erleben. Das Phänomen der Nabelschau aber, der Zwang alles festhalten zu müssen, sich seiner Selbst zu vergewissern und das eigene Erleben im virtuellen Raum verankern zu wollen - könnte das nicht vielleicht ein vorübergehender Trend sein, über den wir irgendwann einmal lachen können wie über diesen Film? Hoffentlich.
Der Film scheut keine absurden Wendungen und ist so voll Phantasie, dass man beim ersten Mal gar nicht alle Details, nicht jeden Witz erhaschen kann. Dabei bleibt einem spätestens beim letzten Bild das Lachen im Halse stecken, das letzte Selfie, das wir nicht machen können: die eigenen Füße, im Leichenschauhaus liegend, der Zettel am großen Zeh. Yolo.


PRESSESPIEGEL


„SELFIES von Claudius Gentinetta zeigt in rasanter Folge Selfies in immer groteskeren Situationen, die Bilder sind übermalt, verfremdet, und offenbaren den gesamten Wahnsinn, der hinter der ständigen Nabelschau verborgen ist." Christine Dériaz über das Locarno Festival für den Filmblog Artechock


„Eine kleine Selfie-Operette. Wunderbar wahr, wunderbar wahnsinnig und wunderbar animiert." Simon Albert Keller für das Maximum Cinema


„Et à travers une série de dessins fouillés, Claudius Gentinetta brosse dans SELFIES un état de la dinguerie du monde à travers la mode de l’autoportrait téléphonique compulsif." Antoine Duplan in Le Temps über den Kurzfilmblock am Locarno Festival


„Da ragen sie in die Höhe. Wogen hin und her wie im Takt. Warten auf den idealen Zeitpunkt der Selbstinszenierung. Ein Selfie-Stick neben dem anderen in einer Häuserschlucht. Das Selfie, das meist mit einem Mobiltelefon aufgenommene Selbstporträt, bildet das Motiv des entsprechend betitelten Kurzfilms Selfies von Claudius Gentinetta. Der Animationsfilmer entführt in eine berauschende Bilderwelt, die er mit einigen überraschenden Momenten belebt. „Filmkritik von Thomas Hunziker im cinemabuch.ch

DIRECTORS STATEMENT


Mein Film bewegt sich an der Grenze zwischen Alltag und Kultur. Ob wir wollen oder nicht:

Selfies wurden zu einem zentralen und kultur-übergreifenden Moment unserer Alltagskultur. Otto Normalverbraucher lebt damit genauso wie die Starlets und Flüchtlinge. Die Art der Inszenierung der Portraits lebt von Zitaten und Referenzen anderer Bilder. Mein Film bewertet die Portaitier-ungswut unserer Zeit nicht. In dem ich das Publikum mitnehme auf diese atemberaubende Bilder-   reise, wo mit unerwünschten Nebenwirkungen ge-rechnet werden muss, möchte ich einen neuen Blick auf dieses zeitgenössische globale Kultur -phänomen werfen.


My film is a walk between everyday life and culture. Whether we want it or not: selfies have become a major, cross-cultural aspect of everyday life. Joe Public is as much a part of this as are starlets and refugees. Staging the self-portraits is based on other people’s quotes and on referencing existing images. My film is not a valuation of the self-portraying craze of our times. Rather, I am taking my viewers on a dizzying journey of images that may have unwanted side effects, and offer them a new perspective of this current cultural phenomenon across the globe.

HINTERGRUND


Selfies sind das charakteristische Phänomen unserer Zeit: unabhängig von Geschlecht, sozialer Schicht oder kultureller Zugehörigkeit knipsen und filmen sich die Menschen aller Länder in alltäglichen und unmöglichen Situationen. Das momenthafte und partikulare Ereignis des Augenblicks wird durch den Transfer ins Internet zu einem zeit- und grenzenlosen Dokument.

Selfies sind somit längst mehr als hübsche Erinnerungsfotos fürs Familienalbum, sie dok-umentieren das eigene Leben wie auch das von allen anderen. Selfies halten nicht nur inszenierte Glücksmomente fest. Wie eine kurze Internet-recherche schnell klar macht, betreffen sie ebenso sehr die dunkle Seite der Conditio Humana. Es entsteht ein Voyeurismus, der weitgehend unab-hängig vom fremden Blick ist. Über Selfies definiert man sich selbst. Selfies stiften die neue Identität.


BACKGROUND


Selfies are the typical phenomenon of our times: regardless of gender, social standing or cultural background, people around the globe film and take snapshots of themselves everywhere, whether in daily situations or impossible predicaments. What ususally is a fleeting event, a moment caught in time, is transferred to the internet and becomes a timeless document across borders. Selfies have become much more than pretty photos for the family album; they are a witness to a person's life and the lives of others. Selfies don't just capture staged moments of happiness. As research on the internet quickly revealed, they also document the dark side of the human condition. This creates a kind of voyeurism that is largely independent from an onlooker's gaze; with selfies, you define yourself. With selfies, you reinvent yourself - they are your new identity. 

LOGLINE

SELFIES ist ein Feuerwerk von grinsenden Menschen die sich in den Abgründe des menschlichen Daseins verlieren. Eine rasante Selfie Reise rund um die Welt. Ein Einblick in den alltäglichen Porträtier - Wahnsinn


SELFIES is a fireworks display of grinning people who lose themselves in the abysses of human existence. A selfie race around the world.

A view on people’s every-day obsession with portraying themselves.
