by Ocusonic
self-production
self-distribution
"A Diamond Forms Under Pressure" is an anomaly existing somewhere between experimental film and music video, computer animation/ programming, science and art. An improvised electronic soundtrack drives proprietary software, which analyses the audios's frequency content and generates a cogent synchronous image in real-time. Frequencies push and pull against each other stabilising or agitating the central image

From the reflection of a gesture to the shadow of another one ? From the Lilliputian viewpoint, ordinary things are getting rougher, less pastoral ? The hard colorings of the picture, the soundtrack made of lyric singing and warped natural sounds superimposed, increase the unease.

In "cave construct", a woman enacts a ritual of developing a cocoon or cave like structure out of one sided plastic bags.

self-production
self-distribution
My work is about the choreography of reality. It's about the way everything moves and is interconnected to create beauty.

A kaleidoscopic reverie recorded over a period of five years in various urban milieus.

A short film that shouts : don’t give up ! A long cry against violence and injustice.


sadescription Crossing
31mn54   color   stereo   2009   Netherlands
by Frans Van Lent
self-production
self-distribution
The work "Crossing" is a confrontation of two different time-structures. On one hand there is a repetitive form, the track of the car with "on the rear-seat" the public. On the other hand there is my performance, a linear time-structure : passing ± 5 meters of street in 30 minutes time. The public is confronted with different stages of this performance only five times during their trip. Further on they know the performance is going on in their absence. The crossing is so slowly (only a few millimeters every step), that for the carpassengers it is not noticeable as actually "moving". It is not a work for looping as an installation. It is really meant for screening and watching it the 31 minutes. If you decide to show it, please show it in that way.

by Shahar Marcus
self-production
self-distribution
In pre-ultrasound days, doctors determined whether a woman was pregnant through a "frog test". For this procedure, the woman's urine was injected into the body of the frog, and from the frog's physical reaction the gynecologist would have an answer. A steady supply of frogs was needed to supply these answers, and the artist's father made his living fishing swamps for this very purpose. In the context of this procedure, the frog's body is the indicator of either life or absence. The video "frog test" is an artistic interpretation to those facts.

"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 globalization.

A young boy molds objects with clay that he then manipulates, combines and associates, in an obscure ritual. As the objects/representations he creates combine and develop a narrative, the fast alternation of images on the screen imbricate and shape images/apparitions that only the “lanterna magica” of cinema and the magic of editing allow. Magica means enchantment.


sadescription Mala apokalipsa
41mn01   color   stereo   2008   Slovenia
by Alvaro Petricig
production : Kinoatelje
distribution : Kinoatelje
"Mala apokalipsa" (Minor Apocalypse) is neither a documentary nor fiction. Paradoxically, it could be defined as "science-fiction documentary", for it is based on a true story – the death of a village. Cisgne is (was) a small settlement in the Nadiža / Natisone Valleys which, similarly to many other mountain or remote settlements, was left to abandonment and ruin by the economic reasoning of our modern lifestyle. The last inhabitants left Cisgne after the earthquake in 1976 when the abandonment of the village and transfer to other settlements in the valley below was imposed on the village dwellers as the only possible solution even though their village only suffered minor damages. The story is a patchwork of testimonies and memories of the village’s daily life and its destiny, with deeply involving and even painful memories awoken by images as persistent as nightmares and almost corroded by the very substance of the memory itself, combined with intuitive reflections on the meaning of time in a village in ruin which may arise in an "outsider", uninfluenced by the life stories of those involved. When apocalypse approaches settlements such as Cisgne, it comes quietly, without a proper announcement, for the events occurring at the very "periphery of an empire" are of no interest to anybody. What is visible to the eye is insatiable vitality with which nature, indifferent to major or minor events in the village’s history, burries and destroys the traces of human experience. Meanwile, many Cisgnes in the Nadiža / Natisone Valleys await a similar fate.

"Music Video for a Pop Song" is a video set to a manipulated version of Britney Spears’ breakout hit "Baby One More Time". The piece addresses the intersection of sexuality, gender, popular culture, beauty, and the grotesque. "Music Video for a Pop Song" depicts three simultaneous videos of heavily rouged lips. As the audio shifts from the genuine song to a slower version, the videos fall in and out of sync with the sound. As a result, the piece exists in a liminal space between connection and disconnection, beautiful and grotesque, masculine and feminine.

Although a desire for love and companionship exists for most of us, there are times when all that it takes to make love possible becomes too much to bear. Despite aloneness, the prospect of caring greatly and getting hurt again is much less inviting. Apathy grows, and yet we still wish for love ; in this work I undergo the cycle of yearning and backing away.

production : Gratuitous Art Productions
distribution : Gratuitous Art Productions
Gratuitous Art Films is a collaborative art project that finds the connections and inflections between today’s audience and yesterday’s bully pulpit. Gratuitous techniques have been keystones in both propaganda and film making in the 20th century and over time, connotations -symbolic, political or otherwise- allow us to manipulate sound and images to gratuitously inflict our own narrative and connotations. We at Gratuitous Art Films dig deep into the trenches of obscura ephemera, sourcing from over 65 years of public domain material ranging from the propaganda of the Prelinger archives to the wax cylinders in Thomas Edison’s Attic. The very sources of the material form a foundational context that allows these short films to work with so many layers. The corporate lens and the time of its conception make each film source a treasure trove of metaphor and social relevance.   Pieced together through modern cynicism and progressive design aesthetics, a dry dark wit extends a hand and slaps you across the face. Some of it is recognizable as the advertorial campaigns, or entertainment of our youth. Others are lost beacons of amateur video capturing decaying Kodak moments of our lives, doubly sweet for the treasure trove of glitches that are the lost trademarks of the non-digital film era.   The dated sources of material form a familiar pallet, offering incredible production values and a temperament that would be nearly impossible to reproduce today. From hair and make up to dance productions, the type of footage we use in our films produces a desaturated sanguine that borders on bittersweet mental illness.

In this video, Manos and Buckius find themselves surrounded by four tables on which run ten printers. Manos and Buckius frantically zoom around the confined space on their rolling chairs in an attempt to retrieve and stack the papers endlessly being processed through the printers. The paperwork just never seems to end, as they race against the clock and an unknown deadline ! The MBC embraces purposelessness ! Our aim is to energize a space with our activities, and suggest new interpretations for existing structures both in the social/political and environmental/architectural sense. Formalist aesthetics...patterned yet spontaneous movement...vibrant colors and actions…we are Jacques Tati meets DEVO. Working as a team, we interact physically with everyday objects and technological devices by using them to perform unconventional, bizarre and highly non- productive tasks. The work proposes that everyday objects and technologies might be reinterpreted in absurd, playful, and strange ways, and that the nature of productivity and function be re-examined. This work questions levels of authority and control : are we in control of technology, our immediate environment, and institutional systems, or is the reverse true ? Our work has included photography, mediated performances (live-feed to video monitor or projector), live performance with projections, videos, video installation with projections, and video installation with sculpture. The MBC is particularly interested in spaces that offer a potential for site-specific work, and we are often drawn to irregular and notably compartmental areas or rooms. We work specifically to the confines of a space, and each space becomes heterotopic through the experience.

From the everyday to the metaphoric, this work is a consideration of human perseverance, industriousness, and the often ludicrous business in our everyday lives.

George Ives, father of the great American composer Charles Ives, was a small-town bandleader with big ideas about music and sound. For example, he would have several bands march toward each other from opposite ends of town, playing a different tune in a different key. George enjoyed the clashing sounds grow in intensity as the bands got closer. I think he would enjoy this tribute to his musical curiosity.

sadescription Valstar Requiem
4mn48   color & b/w   stereo   2009   France
by Antoine Miserey
self-production
self-distribution
This video is built according to a (very) free adaptation of the television film Gilles Deleuze's alphabet primer realized by Pierre-André Boutang and Claire Parney (1988-89/1996), and more particularly of the letter "D", "Desire". The soundtrack, a feminine voice(vote), quotes Deleuze. Antoine Miserey realizes here a video consisted of fragments of films which evoke personal, amateur films, memories (souvenirs) of holidays in the minimal narrative contents. The "heroines" ("heroin") of these short histories are feminine faces (figures) which appear by moment and which seem to be the objects of this desire, the subject of which would be the voice-over, another woman. It is thus question of escaped (fleeting) desires of a woman for women, in particular environments which are appropriate (clean) for them, the "layouts" ("organizations") about which speaks Deleuze. This video can so appear as a continuation (suite) of memories (souvenirs). The title, a mark (brand) of beer, in the rough tones, evokes maybe on the contrary the rough drive, and between contrasts it with the gently nostalgic contents of the video. Emilie Bouvard

by Thorsten Fleisch

Source material is a found footage super 8 film. The visual carrier was attacked in a multitude of ways. It was scratched, cut open and violated. I captured an attempt to screen it. There it burned and was destroyed by the projector. Sorry little film. With the video footage I provoked the encoding. As a result some pixels were dislocated. In the end I reshot the film from the monitor while I somehow angered the cables that connect the monitor with my computer. That all may sound very negative and destructive to you dear reader but the goal was an almost humanist one: Unification of the digital with the anologue world. They seem so far apart and yet they aren't. By exposing every material's weaknesses and injuries it was made one. It's all visual sensations in the end. Rita Hayworth grindily sings along.
