(Par hasard) vers le mur39mn color mono 2010 Franceby Vincent Morisseau & Chloé Jailletself-productionself-distributionTwo french tourists searching the western wall in the old city of Jerusalem by night. ...niland 29mn56 color stereo 2011 Germanyby Marius Leneweit & Rocio Rodriguezself-productionself-distribution"..niland 2" tells about the adaptation and transformation of man to a life
beneath the water surface. The interface of air and water functions as the indicator of a climate influenced by humanity, raises questions regarding the ambivalence of the symbiosis human-environment and examines the stringent concurrence of climate change and cultural change. 11:11:1111mn11 color sil 2010 Brazilby Dalila Martinsself-productionself-distributionLights appear in paths that lead to nowhere. A difficult formation: shattering in duration. In a slippery world where references are scattered and senses become empty at every instant, indexes and significants resist in deterioration. A tribute to the language in ruins. 18627mn15 color stereo 2011 Franceby Philippe Rouyself-productionself-distributionOur future is exhausted. We are liberated from time. Like animals. 19, Espíritu Santo (Andalucía )19mn color & b/w stereo 2010 Franceby Philippe Coteself-productionself-distributionIn the beginning, there were your words, which you wrote me to initiate the pictures to do, far away, alone, down there in Seville and Andalusia.
Then, after a first silent editing... the film would at last find its final form, an intimate essay and standing between your voice, a selection of Antonio Gamoneda's poems, to listen, and my pictures. (Philippe Cote) 201 cartes postales vidéo mobiles120mn color mono 2010 Franceby Dominik Langeself-productionself-distributionSo I had the idea of producing a series of romantic paintings, a pictorial stroll in Paris, a wandering aimlessly displayed, if not to provide a projection support to inner visions, movements of interiority confronted to the current means and technical exchanges and jetable communications, so finally the mobile phone which is the best avatar, an icon of our endless consumption? I do not know if my intentions are very clear, but the images speak for themselves and with less verbiage? A Suite of Forms2mn44 color mono 2011 USAby Eiliyasself-productionself-distributionA simple object modified by basic camera movement, then further analyzed and explored by changes in rhythm and points
of focus. And abstracted experiential dialogue on perception and experience. about my fate0mn58 color stereo 2009 USAby Henry Gwiazdaself-productionself-distributionWhat does fate look like? Acrobate6mn50 color stereo 2011 Franceby Yves-Marie Mahéself-productiondistribution : Light ConeLimits doesn't exist. All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.4mn26 color & b/w stereo 2010 Serbiaby Milica aka mcm-639 Mijacevic-Carevicself-productionself-distributionThis video is about hypocrisy of modern society, about new world order and new democracy, about freedom and illusion, politic and politicians, human rights and equality. Amphësis8mn50 color & b/w stereo 2011 Franceby Philippe Brioudeself-productiondistribution : Light ConeAt the edge of the pier... An Informal Gaze (Una mirada informal)9mn38 color stereo 2010 Mexicoby Ilana Boltvinik & Rodrigo Viñas & Mariana Mañonself-productionself-distributionThe art piece is conceived as an action, the selling of Mexican garbage in Copenhagen and Danish garbage in Mexico City. It is an appropriation of small pieces of public space that emulate street selling as to engage people in transit with this public dynamic. An Ode to Call and Response1mn43 color mono 2011 USAby Eiliyasself-productionself-distributionTwo miscellaneous videos overlaid then through temporal editing, mimicking the call and response traditions in music. Analysis8mn color stereo 2010 Canadaby Jackie Gallantself-productiondistribution : Groupe Intervention Vidéo"Analysis" questions the relationship between language, metaphor, macro and micro states through the investigation of comprehension. The video is layered with words, meanings and landscapes, offering a site to analyze grammatical relationships by studying the structure as a whole. Animal Edge3mn30 color stereo 2011 Germanyby Andrés Meléndezself-productionself-distributionSeparation from our animality is not entirely consumed and is still continuing,til the moment the repression is broken, and shows a hidden nature. Anoxi: la synthèse 6mn32 color dolby stereo 2009 Canadaby Pavitra Wickramasingheproduction : Perte de Signalself-distributionRemix of a triptych produced over 4 years, the work assemble sounds and visuals synthesis in a narrative composition on the suffocation caused by the lack of oxygen. Theorists of digital art have discussed the similarity of precinematic and postcinematic practices (such as early chronophotograhy and Quicktime video clips). The abstractions created by Robin Dupuis, such as Anoxi, can be understood as examining this connection in an aesthetic manner, but following and creating new forms and rhythms with the possibilites of the digital instrument. In Anoxi the elements in the picture are melting into new forms, separating and coming together in continuous transformation and variation. - Mika Taanila, Avanto, Helsinki
ANSWERS14mn50 color dolby stereo 2010 USAby Marilyn Volkmanself-productionself-distribution"ANSWERS (NATO BASES)" presents a series of question and answer sessions videotaped during normal working hours with military personnel stationed at two NATO Headquarters locations in Europe.

Après l'hiver9mn55 color stereo 2010 Canadaby Étienne Paquetteproduction : Parallèle 91distribution : Julie Armstrong-BoileauIn 2105, nearly 600 years after Jacques Cartier’s first winter in America, the continent was stricken by 30 years of pouring rain. The landscape was transformed, a new New World emerged. North of Quebec, a group of men and women set sail, in search of that land they once knew. The voyage brought them back to a lost part of themselves they used to call winter.
After Winter, A Poem From The Next World is an experimental work, consisting for the most part of recycled footage originally shot in the Equatorial Jungle in 2002. This ode to winter questions the relations between the human soul and the environment in our days of climate changes. Après le feu7mn09 color stereo 2010 Franceby Jacques Perconteproduction : Triptyque Filmsself-distributionA few miles from Ajaccio, Corsica, burnt land is buckling under the weight of its colors. The ground is falling apart, releasing pictorial energies that take over the sky. I'm staring at the vanishing skyline. The train keeps on rolling... As A Whistle25mn color & b/w stereo 2011 USAby Phillip Duncanproduction : Cleo Fisheldistribution : FleischfilmLove is a dirty business. The lack of love even dirtier. You can scrub and sing all day until your skin is as red as a valentine. But they will never return. This same body that moved them to tears, this same body that warmed them... is now frozen inside a song. Atome5mn57 color stereo 2010 Moroccoby Hicham Qaidiself-productionself-distributionI go down by the stairs of a ruined house, I climb a desert hill, I walk through a landscape hit by earthquake... attendre12mn52 color stereo 2010 Franceby Isabelle Schneiderself-productionself-distributionRailway station. Au déjeuner, les colibris étaient bègues3mn45 color & b/w stereo 2010 Canadaby Danielle Raymondself-productiondistribution : Groupe Intervention VidéoMemories made up of family archives, radio archives of Expo 67 and the voice of a woman trying to remember the place, atmosphere and context.
In a space that feels domestic, a fireplace and sofa serve as backdrop for different portraits, the reunion of two sisters and a parade of hats. Outside, a crack in a wall reveals a picnic lunch. Images are captured through a 'recorder-projector', a device created by the artist. Augustus3mn43 color stereo 2010 Moroccoby Hicham Qaidiself-productionself-distributionA stunt that challenges the low of gravity when he drives his motorcycle along the death wall. Babayan2mn58 color stereo 2010 Canadaby Anne Goldenself-productiondistribution : Groupe Intervention VidéoAt twilight, a camera glides along a ridge between two valleys. The sounds from the landscape forge a link between the viewer and the horizon. Bacteria10mn color stereo 2010 Indiaby Aditi Kulkarniself-productionself-distribution"Bacteria"- A state of mind in the given space-time model. Bassine-moi33mn color & b/w stereo 2010 Franceby Natacha Roscioself-productionself-distributionThese autonomous scenes do not seem to be related to each other, precisely because of the obvious unsociability of the characters. They coexist in mentally constructed parallel worlds but cannot link together, which suggests a dreadful social reality... However, here and there, a link emerges, round and red, or green and spherical, made of wood or scrap metal… the object. As a palliative against the absence of otherness, the object, be it real or imaginary, fills the void left by the others’ absence. Everyone has their own “bassine”. Before War (Avant la Guerre)5mn40 color stereo 2010 USAby Jared Katsianeself-productionself-distributionBoston, 1951: uncle Tommy makes home movies… then brings along his camera as a soldier in the Korean War. being shot5mn color stereo 2010 United Kingdomby Guli Silbersteinself-productionself-distributionA video of a handcuffed blindfolded man detained by soldiers on the street, and dreamlike images of abstract shapes and patterns in rocks and water, are synthesised by a distortion of the video signal, creating unsettling confusion and linkage between the tragic and the poetic, and between different uses of the sense of vision. Belle9mn color stereo 2010 Portugalby Daria Baiocchi & Luis Fernandesself-productionself-distributionIt grew up as a collaboration between two artists: Luis Fernandes and Daria Baiocchi. Music is straight connected to images. A video who deals with subtly meanings, apparently without any understanding of the Beauty itself but with an irreplaceable essence. One beauty full of beauteous, lightness and transparency. A video about visual languages overlaid by dreams and magnetic rushes covered by an inception on this idyllic mirror, featured on the landscape of reality… Belsunce fragments20mn color mono 2010 Franceby Anne-Marie Lallementself-productionself-distributionHow to describe in a few clips, the Belsunce area in Marseille (the central district of maghrebine migration) just throuh the daily life of "chibanis" (old algerians), the blowing of the mistral wind, and the evolution of this very area. Beyond1mn03 color stereo 2011 Romaniaby George Dorobantuself-productionself-distributionShort urban visual poem witnessed in Bucharest. Beyond dense gliding walls of human traffic, right under the surface of eye-level communication magma, an old soul awaits. Bez naslova (Plavo) / No Title (Blue)6mn color mono 2009 Croatiaby Renata Poljak & Boris Poljakproduction : Croatian Film Clubs’ Associationself-distributionThe work "No Title" lies in between video and painting and investigates that line, making us aware of the general relevance of themes like love and art. Billiards Melody6mn45 color stereo 2011 Franceby Jean-Michel Rollandself-productionself-distributionA billiards cue hits the white ball which breaks the rack apart. This action is developed all along the video on different frames, tonalities and rhythms. This video is one of a series trying to make sounds and images meet in a transmediality approach. Black Salt Water Elegy16mn b/w dolby stereo 2010 Canadaby Solomon Naglerself-productionself-distributionA short film that weaves together original and archival material to create an ethereal narrative texture, "Black Saltwater Elegy" intimately links the discordant threads of a popular history of dispossession (Africville) with the solitude of its protagonist's graveyard-shift fantasies. After opening with disquieting archival footage of the demolition of Africville, the film shifts to an austere observational portrait. A palatable sense of the duration of midnight work slowly shifts into subtle gestures that hint towards choreographed events. Eventually, a breech occurs as the protagonist fuses with an emergent dreamscape, where ruined landscapes and the resurrection of an extinct community intertwine. Using the protagonist's disembodied point of view, the audience floats above a reconstructed Africville, one forever present, nesting in a bed of saltwater fog. Blue Black Berlin7mn20 color stereo 2009 Germanyby Ana Bilankovself-productionself-distributionAn idyllic night promenade along the Berlin Spree with ships and walkers turns into a fictive, potentially catastrophic and threatening scenario. The dramatization of the abstract narrative is reinforced through the sound. Boredom9mn04 color stereo 2010 Canadaby Patricia Rivasself-productiondistribution : Groupe Intervention Vidéo"Boredom" takes a look at the state of ennui. The video explores the artists' path in her quest to better understand boredom. Long takes present the artist and those close to her. These shots appear throughout the video.

C'est l'histoire d'un loup1mn35 color stereo 2011 Franceby Fabrice Guérinonself-productionself-distributionVisit in the zoo. Capitol Symmetry8mn20 color sil 2010 USAby Neil Needlemanself-productionself-distributionThis video is about symmetry. First, the subject matter is symmetrical: the Capitol Plaza in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Second, I flipped the footage on itself, so the scenes in the frame are symmetrical. Third, the temporal structure of the video is symmetrical: the overlapping scenes progress to the midway point and then they flow in reverse to the beginning (now the end). Capture mode28mn58 color stereo 2010 Franceby Béatrice Plumetproduction : Red Star Cinemadistribution : Red Star CinémaI have always wanted to capture the time. Since many years, I’ve collected a photographical substance to hold which never stops getting away from me. Today, I’ve renounced to this gesture of obsessional recording. Revisiting those intimate records, I’m looking for what has been changing in this passing time. Carte du Ciel12mn color & b/w stereo 2011 USAby David Baumflekself-productionself-distribution"Carte du Ciel" was an international astronomical project in the late 19th & early 20th century to photograph the entire universe. This story of technological hubris, colonialism & fall of empire is told with original archival footage, along with early cinema clips and images of contemporary life. ceci est une bobine test3mn b/w sil 2010 Greeceby Matoula Eolou Gekkoself-productionself-distribution"An Athens walkabout with a Super 8 camera in search of contact with people on the street, becomes an instant collective project. The nostalgic gaze is reciprocal, from the camera to its subjects and vice versa. Eolou Gekko seems to merge with the subjects of her film and in the background the city is desired as a paradise lost." V. Bourikas Cette obscure tentation25mn55 b/w stereo 2011 Franceby Renaud Ducoingproduction : Andésite Productionsself-distributionMathilde, a paraplegic young woman, falls in a dark morbid masochism. Physical masochism but also moral, imagining herself "genetically racist". Daily visits of François Amable, a physiotherapist from Reunion island, will be an opportunity to express this particular racism... Colors Melody4mn color stereo 2011 Franceby Jean-Michel Rollandself-productionself-distributionIn the foreground of this experiment, a series of 20 chips change color and disappear in an ordered yet elusive way. At each color change, a note is triggered. The chips, although thrown on a mathematical basis, succeed in an unpredictable manner as they appear to lack all logic and involve a range of incalculable possibilities. Comme un vent qui nous pousse dans le dos19mn color stereo 2010 Franceby Caroline Beuretself-productionself-distributionAn alarm, a road, a shout. That speaks about time period. You never can tell when it finishes. Where is it, what we did not forget? Con Amore3mn34 color stereo 2009 Canadaby Pavitra Wickramasingheproduction : Perte de Signaldistribution : Perte de signalA breathless body, articulated through a surgical dissection of time. Like a collection of fragments, a being grown increasingly fractured—likely as it searches for itself, for the moments it is made of. Then the intensity of the cry, until the pain is exhausted. An act of desperation, pulverized, until man finally becomes machine, a mechanical monster. And yet, the universe stays put. Continuum6mn color dolby stereo 2009 Italyby Devis Venturelliself-productionself-distribution"Continuum" illustrates temporary transformations of a body in the urban environment. Couleurs1mn35 color stereo 2010 Franceby Yves-Marie Mahéself-productiondistribution : Light ConeColors.

Crooked Beauty30mn color & b/w stereo 2010 USAby Ken Paul Rosenthalself-productionself-distribution"Crooked Beauty" is a poetic documentary that chronicles artist-writer Jacks McNamara's transformative journey from psych ward patient to pioneering mental health advocacy. Poignant testimonials connect the fissures and fault lines of human nature to the unstable topography and mercurial weather patterns of the San Francisco Bay Area. Danses6mn color stereo 2009 USAby Kevin Evensenself-productionself-distribution"Danses" is comprised of three pieces, looped together to create a digital tryptic. The digital sound in "Danses" is an electro acoustic digital arrangement based on Erik Satie's "Gymnopodies". The altered digital imagery of the group emulates forms in nature and brings to visual life Contamine de Latour's "The Ancient", upon which the Gymnopodies were based. Déconstruction / Construction18mn18 color stereo 2010 Franceby Séverine Mathieu & Suzel Roche & Emmanuel Vigierproduction : dis-FORMES & Collectif Caillouxdistribution : dis-FORMES & Collectif CaillouxWe filmed through 3 different eyes, 3 different light, the foudroyage of a bridge(deck) on the border between the renewed districts and the former(ancient) district of the station of Marseille.

Democracy Feeding On The Chaos In Egypt 10mn color sil 2011 USAby Dato Mioself-productionself-distribution"Democracy Feeding On The Chaos In Egypt" is an exploration of the parasitic quality of western democracies with respect to foreign policy, and the illusion that democracy is a benevolent force in the world. Dérive6mn30 color stereo 2010 Franceby Inés Wickmannself-productionself-distribution"Dérive" carries a glance on the environmental questions of a planet in full upheaval. A threat through inopportune appearances leads to a process which is damaged in a deep spiral. However, the life continues…

Domestic Rhythms6mn color & b/w stereo 2009 USAby Jeremy Newmanself-productionself-distributionThis video begins with Rapunzel’s fairy tale wedding. Selected clips from the children’s animation depict her marriage falling apart. Newsreel footage of fashion models and sequences from a film about communication technology are linked to the witch. The implication is that the mass media casts a spell that disenchants viewers. dont touch me please40mn color & b/w stereo 2010 Franceby Shanti Masudproduction : La vie est belle films self-distributionA speechless film, both musical and sexy. One theme: seduction... Characters who play tricks (magic trocks sometimes). Each one has its own reverse shot, its own "other one", its own (or almost) song, like a fiction (a setting) around a character. doppelganger4mn13 b/w stereo 2009 Canadaby Micheline Durocherself-productionself-distributionThis recent experimental video is inspired by the autobiography of Goethe, conveying the uncanny feeling of being confronted with your double coming toward you.

E Buio Sia1mn51 color stereo 2010 Italyby Sirio Sechiself-productionself-distributionA full speed trip into a cave, a subjective vision called "bat-flight".
The film begins in excess light, the light that creates life, too much life, too heavy, disturbing, the light that dazzles instead of shows. Then you enter the cave to take refuge in the dark: the opposite of light. During this travel we discover the wonders created in the dark, those hidden from everyone, even the Sun. Until reaching total darkness, the darkness that was the principle of everything and the creation itself. E.S.P.R.I.T.11mn color dolby stereo 2010 Franceby Julien Beaunayproduction : Outrageously Optimisticself-distributionWhat's going on in Mr Guimbert's mind?

Eclipse24mn color stereo 2010 Spainby Alberte Pagánself-productionself-distributionTime passes. Life flows. Nature completes a cycle of life and death. Eve and Adam correct the myth of the tree of knowledge: the forbidden fruit makes them wise. Baroque symphony of light and colour.

Einschnitte 2mn22 color sil 2011 Canadaby Lina Rodriguezself-productionself-distributionAn afternoon with Viennese statues. Electric Garden3mn30 color stereo 2009 Canadaby Micheline Durocherself-productionself-distribution"Electric Garden" is constructed upon one continuous pan of the edges and outlines of the female body and elicits the idea of the well established erotic theme in art, the reclining nude. Rendered in rich and vibrant colours, it transfers the imagery of the undressed observed reclining woman to a visual representation of woman’s own satisfaction. Eloge de la raison25mn color stereo 2010 Franceby Waël Noureddineself-productionself-distributionA plunge into the mental world of a drug addict which echoes the chaos around him. Ely14mn color dolby stereo 2011 USAby Andrea Dojmi & Lorenzo Bonaself-productionself-distribution"Ely" has been a space mission, the last of the Space Era. "Ely" was the woman I loved before leaving the Earth. "Ely" was a young girl, maybe mine. "Ely", the far away planet I've orbited around for years. "Ely" became the name of planet Earth. Once back the Sun's light was just like it had been when as kids we used to observe the dust in the thin air of our indian summer. Once back the time hadn't come yet to understand, cry or remember. Embers5mn b/w stereo 2010 Italyby Lithos 19self-productionself-distributionIn all relationships violence is not as obvious as the flame of a fire breaking out in a short time; sometimes violence is underneath, it is hidden but daily present, and painfully corrosive. It is like a weak small flame consuming energy from the embers, transforming everything into ash. Empirical Data34mn b/w stereo 2009 Greeceby George Drivasself-productionself-distribution"Empirical Data" is based on the personal experience of the actor David Maltese as an immigrant in Greece, and his trajectory from entering the country to taking up acting. The protagonist of the film David Malteze, impersonates himself, during his first professional steps. En retard3mn30 color stereo 2010 Franceby Sylvain Vuilleretself-productionself-distribution"Late" tells the last strange meeting of two men. Its colors, its space, its time, its ubiquity, this sensation that the characters make the narrative and not the opposite, make of this video a totally dreamlike work. Enter Space Ether14mn50 color stereo 2010 Indiaby TAXI & Sourav Roy Chowdhuryself-productionself-distribution"It all takes place in the void" - Leonid Andreyev, Requiem. Nature carries one from the illusory world of reality into the metaphysical world.

Eruption3mn54 color stereo 2010 USAby Jennifer Campbellself-productiondistribution : Video Out"Eruption" is a video documenting the artist simulating the faux-eruption of Mt. Rainier. It aims to amusingly dramatize the contrast between the crude attempt at simulation and the implacable power of the mountain, spoofing our desire to domesticate that which we cannot possibly control. Essence4mn10 b/w stereo 2010 Germanyby Irena Paskaliself-productionself-distributionHere, "Irena Paskali" shows in an abstract way, how topics which firstly are existing in our imaginations as a spectrum of perspectives are drawn back to there essence. Every perspective is shown as own identity each of them are occupying the artist completely. They mutually are entering an elevator for being traced back to there very core, combined and interwoven – in a creative process in which the artist is keeping prevalence over every perspective. As a result this very essence is depicted to the spectators, here embodied as the one artist which returns from the elevator. essLoeffel15mn18 color stereo 2010 Germanyby Kate Haase & Sebastian Hühnelself-productionself-distributionA woman eats spoons to become pregnant. Etang de la Sourdaie - Tableau filmé pour pelleteuse & accordéon13mn color stereo 2010 Franceby Sandrine Treuillardself-productionself-distributionA wriggling picture with reflections of water on foliages. Music of place. Sonorous image of gratings — clanks on stone — purring engine… : an off-camera digger. "jeux d’anches" are as coming out from the light circulating in leaves. First discreet, the accordion is then going to take its place, jousting against the digger. Etang du Claudy (Le chardon)15mn30 color stereo 2010 Franceby Sandrine Treuillardself-productionself-distributionThe bank — going from grassy soil to water, from light to shadow. Roaming, contemplation, immersed in the image of this artificial pond on which the accordion piece weaves a kind of fiction. Thistles standing in water… A no-wilful correspondence between the filming process and the musical performance by Anzellotti. Étude comparée de chants d’oiseaux avec leur transcription phonétique4mn50 color stereo 2009 Canadaby Claudette Lemayproduction : Perte de Signalself-distributionIn this ornithological study, Claudette Lemay uses humour to explore a variety of bird song transcriptions created using onomatopoeia and sound wave charts. With this bizarre repertoire, she tries to master her subject by joining the lightness of touch of a game with the rigour of methodical archiving.
Etude D2mn18 color stereo 2011 USAby Joy Whalenself-productionself-distribution"Etude D", from a series of video pieces I am making in conjunction with the experimental band SONOI, is mostly abstract and refers movement and flow. A swelling tide, a rushing waterfall, white tumbling from a blade of grass stagnated in a milky pool against a background of black. Everyman's Dream11mn color stereo 2010 Serbiaby Doplgengerself-productionself-distribution"Everyman's Dream" is experimental video that represents super-modern allegory placed in the most globalized phenomena – nonplace of shopping center.

Follow Your Skin4mn37 color stereo 2010 Republic of Irelandby Ocusonicself-productionself-distribution"Follow Your Skin" is visual music composed from recordings made live in the Experimental Television Center, New York. A terrestrial TV signal is mapped into patterns created by a Voltage Controlled Oscillator. Short snippets of the TV’s audio are randomly introduced in an attempt to recontextualise the broadcast and perchance elicit new meaning. Fool for love (Loucos de amor)14mn30 color stereo 2009 Canadaby Gabriela Golderself-productiondistribution : Groupe Intervention VidéoThe video presents two children (Lola Costi and Livia Bambozzi) reading excerpts aloud of a text adapted from Sam Shepard's play FOOL FOR LOVE. The hesitations, the strange feelings generated by reading the text and the unsolicited comments regarding it, sometimes confirm and sometimes contrast with the idea of an almost impossible love forever torn apart evident in Shepard's writings. Forsythia Madness6mn54 color sil 2010 USAby Neil Needlemanself-productionself-distributionCall me mad, but this is one of the ways I celebrate the colors of spring. As I wander out into the bursting-color landscape during this season, I’m blinded by the dazzling shades of yellow and light green. And I soak it all up with my eyes and (occasionally) my camera. I wish the color show lasted longer than a few short weeks—but I’m grateful for even that. found_footage5mn color & b/w stereo 2010 Italyby Patrizia Monzaniself-productionself-distributionWater as a symbol of nature, water as the origin of life and therefore of man.

From a land of ashes and mist21mn05 color & b/w stereo 2010 Italyby Fabio Scacchioliself-productionself-distributionStarting from 50 reels of 8mm and super8 film recovered in L’Aquila (Italy) and nearby towns after the earthquake of 6 April 2009, I tried to describe the disaster of earthquake to reach a general reflection on memory and its stratification. Through the alternation, the overlapping, the merging of private images of family life with dramatic images of the same places after the earthquake, the city becomes a metaphor of the fragility of memory. Futurology3mn02 color stereo 2011 New Zealandby Brit Bunkleyself-productionself-distributionThis video is a study of various "futuristic" edifices altered slightly in video software: a contemporary cargo ship, various airport terminals, the Auckland Sky Tower and the Seattle Space Needle. When I was young, most of us were convinced that the future would be far different than it turned out to be. We would either be living in George Jetson elevated homes (modelled in part on the 1962 Seattle Space needle)… or if we survived an expected nuclear war, we’d be living in a post-apocalyptic nuclear winter. Fortunately neither happened. http://vimeo.com/19404340 gold diamonds7mn11 color mono 2011 Israelby Shahar Marcusself-productionself-distributionThis autobiographical work depicts the artist's personal journey from a world that deals with material that remains in the hands of the individual to a world that distributed its property in the public domain.

It is the most intricate encounter that wanderers have to undertake, through which they find the essence of their existence and the answer for who we are.

The actors look like virtual singing sculptures and some kind of a grammar of the movie’s single parts can be examined.

Losing Ground13mn color stereo 2010 Canadaby Isabelle Hayeurself-productiondistribution : Groupe Intervention Vidéo"Losing Ground" is a critique of urban sprawl and the resulting erosion and homogenization of the countryside across the world. With its negation of city history, of geographic particularities, and thus of cultural memory, this standardized urbanization imposes its amnesia, individualistic lifestyle, and jarring presence in nature. Filmed in Quartier DIX30 in Brossard, the biggest lifestyle center in Canada, the video sounds out recently man-made territories so as to decipher humanity’s relationships with the environment. It confronts us with the dizzying spectacle of our diminishing local references, as they give way to cultural stereotypes, now become universal through.

They are moved in all three dimensions and finally torn apart. These modular clips are assembled digitally to geometrical forms and abstract constellations. Each plant particle has its own sound created by plants or nature. These sounds are sampled and composed to create the score of the films.

My Landscape, Your Language12mn50 color stereo 2010 USAby Ellen Zweigself-productionself-distribution"My Landscape Your Language" is a project in which artists, writers, philosophers, and other invited guests think about their definition of the word "landscape", stretching the metaphorical meanings of the word as far as they can go. At the same time, each person, making a statement in his own language, learns to recite his statement in another language. This piece is a compilation of the results from speakers in New York, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Beijing, whose native languages were English, Chinese, and Cantonese; and who learned to speak Chinese, Cantonese, French and English.

The acoustic and rhythmic foundation of the video is a specific breathing exercise performed in Aikido during which different syllables are pronounced. Oh8mn b/w stereo 2010 Belgiumby Anouk De Clercqself-productionself-distribution"Oh" seeks to reanimate the ambitious, utopian spirit of renegade architect Etienne-Louis Boullée (1728-1799). True to the spirit of the utopian architectural tradition Boullée is part of, he is probably best remembered today for one unrealized project in particular: the design for a gigantic sphere-shaped shrine dedicated to one of the founding fathers of modern science, Isaac Newton (1784).
Although the historical reference to an unrealized architectural project adds a nostalgic, melancholy twist to Oh, De Clercq nevertheless stays true to her well-documented passion for images of futurity. Oh sees the continuation of De Clercq’s singular ‘poétique de l’espace’ – a richly textured visual investigation of the allegorical tension between inside and outside, real and imaginary (‘virtual’), two- and three-dimensional, analogue and digital, immensity and intimacy.

PAISAJE - DURACIÓN9mn30 color stereo 2010 Spainby Lois Patiñoself-productiondistribution : Cámara ExcéntricaThe film studies the sublimation experience during a landscape contemplation . From the concept durée of Henri Bergson, the film addresses to the image of the consciousness. Viewing a great landscape, you experiment a sublimation process, you feel the full instant where the time spreads through the consciousness. The mental image of the landscape transforms itself into a metamorphosis of colours and textures.

He wrote the solo "Delirium Tremens", I realize "Because, I", we work around the same questions.
My movie examines the relationship between oneself and the others, attachment and detachment from bodies, the irreducible otherness that separates us and yet defined the social and intimate’s scope of what we are.
The image is taken as a material from which the movie is shaped. Movie of collages, assemblages, where narration predates less and less to direct experimentation of shooting-editing. Do not tell a story in a linear fashion but take an idea and turn around. Paris Recyclers5mn39 color stereo 2011 Franceby Nikki Schusterself-productiondistribution : sixpackfilm"Paris Recyclers“ is an experimental film portrait of the cultural, social and urban fabrics of Paris.

Pioneers35mn color stereo 2009 USAby Charles Fairbanksself-productionself-distribution"Pioneers" is a portrait of industrial agriculture and new-age spirituality, focusing on the filmmaker’s parents. It is also an unwitting self-portrait of an artist returning to the place he grew up, where he feels both the comforts of home and the alienating weight of the past. While "Pioneers" shows us remarkably different worldviews coexisting on the Great Plains, in the same bedroom, it also unravels complex facets of identity, belief, relationships: the ways we resist and inhabit one another.

Small stories of anonymous characters are woven together taking us on a journey through Spain of the last 7 years, from 2003 to 2010. This square provides a unique stage for the unfolding of the social movements, the political demands, everyday life, the latest fashions, improvised performances, international events, moments of great intimacy, celebrations, life stages, the transformation of the museum, personal frictions and leisure... a description of life in the street, that recovers the poetry of the everyday.

Pustara / Wasteland26mn color stereo 2010 Croatiaby Ivan Faktorproduction : Croatian Film Clubs’ Associationself-distributionThe film was shot by hand-held camera, and is all in subjective takes. The main "character" in the film is light. Light reveals characters and objects, without care for the composition of the shot or using artificial lighting. Simultaneously with the shooting of the refraction of light, the spreading – ringing of sound is recorded. And the most important – silence, because in the wasteland, on that "island" with no visible boundary between the sky and the earth, in that prison with no fences, silence is louder than the noise of any city. Rachki4mn47 color stereo 2010 Canadaby Kandis Friesenself-productiondistribution : Groupe Intervention Vidéo"Rachki" is an experimental video looking at memory, migration, translation, and loss.

The Oyster Effect12mn52 color & b/w stereo 2010 Italyby Valentina Ferrandesself-productionself-distribution"Tarantism" was a medical condition to be found in Basilicata and Puglia, a remote region of South Italy, until the eighties. According to popular belief, it was provoked by the bite of a poisonous spider called Tarantula and its manifestations were convulsions, paralysis, speaking difficulties, and nausea. It was mainly affecting women, and it could only be relieved and eventually cured through frantic dancing induced by a particular fast paced music called Tarantella. Using as a departure point excerpts of documentary footage shot by the anthropologist Ernesto De Martino team in 1959, during his field research in Salento, "The Oyster Effect" develops into a collage of historical references as narrating voices over a visual journey. In the film, the portrayal of women and hysteria is shown as a series of parallels between built environments, architectural spaces, landscape and their narration. The viewer travels through foreign languages and non-descriptive locations, in a journey that challenges linearity and historicism. The attempt to bridge the specific representations of women’s subjectivity as products of their cultural environments, in the north and southern Europe, is persistently negated by the conflicting relation between image and narrating voice.

The spectator can choose to liberate the sculpture from the marble and its dependence material, so the body-statue sublimates and the marble becomes virtual idea. Or the user can also choose to imprison the statue into the marble, bringing it to the primordial state where the
