Missing Scenes Chronicles

If I wasn’t thinking about the past, the past was thinking about me.

—Deborah Levy

Sabine Groenewegen is developing her Missing Scenes Chronicles, a new body of work  prompted by the discovery of vanished scenes from a Dutch pre war film set on a rubber plantation in Sumatra. Her search for answers on why all scenes with a particular female character were removed from the original print opens up to larger questions of omission, maternal heritage and how we are connected ancestrally. Forensics, poetry and speculation entwine in a series of work combining moving image, installation and performance to share an exploration of what travels through us across time. 

Missing Scenes is produced by Manon Bovenkerk from near/by film and supported by Gemeente Den Haag, Fonds 1818, Stroom, EYE film institute, and 1646.


About Sabine Groenewegen: Groenewegen’s work moves on the intersection of visual art and cinema. Her feature length debut film Odyssey (2019) won the 2019 Doc Alliance Award for Best Film and Best Experimental Feature at Instanbul Experimental Film Festival. The work has toured festivals including DocLisboa, FidMarseille and New Horizons Visual Front and contemporary art centres including the Institute of Contemporary Art: ICA in London. Sabine is a guest teacher at the MA Artists’s Film & Moving Image at Goldsmiths University of London, and the MA Artistic Research in and through Cinema at the Netherlands Film Academy.
