Helios flying Studio,

Secret Screening,
Filmklasse Mainz

Over the next three months Filmklasse Mainz will host a series of screenings in it’s new mobile cinema HELIOS (flying studio). Taking it’s name from the moving-image pioneer Eadweard Muybridge’s mobile photo unit Helios (Flying Studio) the temporary cinemas will examine some of the more radical strategies from the early days of film-projection. Each location will bring its own set of possibilities & limitations and the films projected are a direct response to them.

The series is an attempt to create a discussion about a free cinema that emerges out of a desire to make some of our private viewing habits public. At a time when public space is rapidly becoming private property & the collective attention is dissolving into the monetized distraction of streaming content in solitude, the digital age actually offers new mobility and a prospect of shared projections.
