The collective Art for Rainy Days shows a short filmic impression of their performance "How a spiral works", which can also be seen at the festival. What you see are fragments of ideas that are at the very beginning of a creative project where the medium is the only message.
Afterwards we get into surrealistic humor and absurd ideas. The film "DUCKumentary about Marija Baranauskaitė" explores the creative chaos during the Lithuanian clown's stays in Cologne and Etampes, France. After successful pieces in which she performed only for non-humans, like cellos and sofas, the artist takes on a new challenge: human audiences. The surprising epilogue follows immediately, however, as she works with ducks as performers:inside. Documentary filmmaker Filip Jacobson spans the entire process of creation, showing conceptual work, research, resting and performance. In the process, the film skillfully balances the ubiquitous question: is it pure, ingenious art or total fraud? One thought remains: Stop asking what a duck can do to you, ask how you can duck.
