Zyklus von Kleinigkeiten digitized

Ana Torfs’ only feature film Zyklus von Kleinigkeiten (Cycle of Trifles, 1998) has been digitized by the Royal Belgian Filmarchive (Brussels) and Eye, the Dutch Film Archive (Amsterdam). After presentations in 2020 in deSingel and Bozar, in collaboration with Ictus Ensemble, the film was shown in Zeughauskino in Berlin on 23 October 2021, and in Cinematek in Brussels on 20 November 2021.

Web project Approximations/Contradictions reprogrammed in HTML5

Dia Art Foundation in New York has reprogrammed Ana Torfs’ only web project Approximations/Contradictions (2004) in HTML5 as Flash is no longer supported by most browsers. The size of the work has been adapted to contemporary screens. For an introduction to this work, based on the “Hollywood Songbook” by Hanns Eisler and Bertolt Brecht, look here.
