Migrations #3 – Sasha Litvintseva

Sasha Litvintseva: Parallel Spaces, Parallel Times

Sasha Litvintseva’s three short films and talk focus on the overlapping temporalities and spatialities of local and tourist life, and in the figure of the ruin and the architectural copy. What is the role of cinematic images and durations in making all these intelligible? Is a cinematic image itself a ruin or a copy? Does it replicate the durations that coexist in a certain space, or does it create another temporal layer which interferes with them?
