August 18–September 1, 2022

How much do we sense, speculate, and respond to the signs conveyed by the life and death of other beings? How can we open up our clandestine relationship with them? Rather than blur or abolish boundaries, can we sustain the tension that animates such alterity and not neutralize that relationship? In search of answers, whale-time and human-time dive into small circles where emptiness and fullness meet.

Three Circles with(in) the Whale is one of five films presented by the 19th edition of the Experimental Film and Video Festival in Seoul – EXiS, as part of a special selection on e-flux Video & Film streaming for two weeks from August 18 to September 1, and accompanied by a conversation between EXiS 2022 programmer Inhan Cho and e-flux’s Lukas Brasiskis. See the full program here.

The program is part of the series Festival Forum on e-flux Video & Film, presenting collaborations with established and emerging moving-image festivals from around the world.
