Lights 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.

In 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)

by Dominik Lange
self-production
self-distribution
So 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?

sadescription Anoxi: la synthèse
6mn32   color   dolby stereo   2009   Canada
by Pavitra Wickramasinghe
production : Perte de Signal
self-distribution
Remix 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

by Étienne Paquette
production : Parallèle 91
distribution : Julie Armstrong-Boileau
In 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.

sadescription Bassine-moi
33mn   color & b/w   stereo   2010   France
by Natacha Roscio
self-production
self-distribution
These 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”.


sadescription Belle
9mn   color   stereo   2010   Portugal
by Daria Baiocchi & Luis Fernandes
self-production
self-distribution
It 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…

sadescription Black Salt Water Elegy
16mn   b/w   dolby stereo   2010   Canada
by Solomon Nagler
self-production
self-distribution
A 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.

I 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.

A 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.

As a result this very essence is depicted to the spectators, here embodied as the one artist which returns from the elevator.

A wriggling picture with reflections of water on foliages. Music of place. Sonorous image of gratings — clanks on stone — purring engine… : an off-camera digger.

I wish the color show lasted longer than a few short weeks—but I’m grateful for even that.

"Losing Ground" is a critique of urban sprawl and the resulting erosion and homogenization of the countryside across the world.

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.

"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.

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.

The film takes place in one location, the Reina Sofia Museum Square, Madrid (Spain). 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.

The 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.

by Valentina Ferrandes
self-production
self-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.
