Memories (2004, 19 min, digital)
A woman grows up during the bubble economy in Japan. Why did her parents never speak about the past? Using a box full of photos found in her family archive, Schedelbauer tries to construct one version of a family history.
Remote Intimacy (2007-08, 14.5 min, 16mm-to-digital, color/b&w)
Remote Intimacy is a stream of consciousness with fictitious and found stories and a personal reference.
False Friends (2007, 5 min, 16mm-to-digital, b&w)
A montage of mid-century found footage: mysterious strands are obsessively braided to create a poetic reflection about an anxious interplay of memory and projection.
Way Fare (2009, 6.5 min, 16mm-to-digital)
A layered tone poem of found images and woven soundscapes renders a shifting psycho-gram; a nomadic passage across spaces in and out of time.
Sounding Glass (2011, 10 min, Super 8mm & 16mm-to-digital, b&w)
A man in a forest is subject to a flood of impressions; rhythmic waves of images and sounds give form to his introspection.
Sea of Vapors (2014, 15 min, digital, color/b&w)
A cascade of images cut frame by frame flow into an allegory of the lunar cycle.
Program running time: approx. 75 minutes
