...Inside3mn30 color & b/w stereo 2009 Spainby Javier A. Bedrinaself-productionself-distributionWhat counts is what is inside. From within I see you. From within I feel you.

A Diamond Forms Under Pressure6mn12 color stereo 2008 Republic of Irelandby Ocusonicself-productionself-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 A peine je m’endormais1mn44 color stereo 2009 Franceby VORLEself-productionself-distributionFrom the reflection of a gesture to the shadow of another one ? From the Lilliputian viewpoint, ordinary things are getting rougher, less pastoral ?

Aller Jamais Retour3mn13 color stereo 2009 Franceby Christian Lajoumardproduction : Acrobates Filmsself-distributionFor thousand of men, beyond the seas, the dream can come true.

Black's Back12mn color & b/w stereo 2009 Franceby Derek Woolfendenself-productionself-distribution"Black's Back" is a subjective vision about a figurative struggle between a White imaginary (Hollywood, Disney) and the Black revendications in the fifties, sixties and seventies in USA. This movie is a tribute to the Black Revolution and a sad testimony about misery and injustice from capitalist governments dispite the Black Panther Party's warnings. Budding1mn51 color stereo 2009 USAby Julia Oldhamself-productionself-distribution"Budding" explores the mysterious activities that take place on the damp forest floor in early spring.

I have in this video put together a part of his performance to a canon.
The video is reviewed and approved by Jorge R. cave construct8mn14 color stereo 2008 USAby Joy Whalenproduction : Joy Productionsdistribution : Joy ProductionsIn "cave construct", a woman enacts a ritual of developing a cocoon or cave like structure out of one sided plastic bags. By doing so, her world becomes a place of luminescent light and protection, which she then folds herself into. This is a work about a sort of backwards metamorphosis, a seeking for shelter from the outside in. Charades7mn color & b/w stereo 2009 USAby Ann Steuernagelself-productionself-distributionThis found footage piece is a celebration of boy/girl identity and lesbian sexuality.
Cheval Blême3mn55 color stereo 2009 Franceby Philippe Rouyself-productiondistribution : HEURE EXQUISE !On 17 July 1939 a man was guillotined in public in front of a camera.

Our everyday performance. Churr-churr Ziz Ziz Ziz2mn06 color stereo 2009 USAby Julia Oldhamself-productionself-distributionThis video is a performative exploration of methods of stridulation, which refers to the way insects rub textured body parts together to make a sound. The sounds you hear in the video range from field recordings of crickets to homemade sounds recorded in my kitchen ; the movements are based on observations and research. claudia and paul 7:02 a.m.7mn color stereo 2008 USAby Henry Gwiazdaself-productionself-distributionMy work is about the choreography of reality. It's about the way everything moves and is interconnected to create beauty. Each small, choreographed scene can be appreciated for itself, but on subsequent viewings, takes on a separate meaning. They become metaphors for our lives, our dreams and ourselves. Claudine n’aura pas son certificat de conformité6mn25 color stereo 2009 Franceby Claudine Bourbigotproduction : La Marée Montedistribution : La Marée MonteClaudine is extremely delighted by the great seeing census that’s been launched by the French government in order to better classify the population. She’s got so much to give. Collision of Parts15mn color & b/w stereo 2010 USAby Mark Streetself-productionself-distributionA kaleidoscopic reverie recorded over a period of five years in various urban milieus. An excavation of the concept of montage : small moments public and private brush up against each other, creating a charged tapestry of the immediate. Inside and outside, motion and stasis, home and travel, light and dark : a series of antimonies struggle to be heard and seen. Comeback6mn27 color stereo 2009 Croatiaby ZECself-productionself-distribution"Comeback" is a journey into the past, a coming home, a return to tradition and the beauty and ruins of folklore. In two frames, backwards, forwards and sideways we see a man with a suitcase as he returns, or leaves ; changing into something resembling a pirate, a farmer, a dancer. Comprenne qui voudra ! / For those who want to understand !2mn color stereo 2009 Franceby Emmanuelle Sarrouyproduction : Endogènedistribution : EndogèneA short film shot in order to participate to the collective one Outrage et Rébellion.
It’s not part of it, and it keeps eventually its autonomy (ou home rule). A graphic and musical short film that speaks to our senses.
A short film that is a tribute to Joachim Gatti’s Eye and to incessant struggles that we must lead. A short film that shouts : don’t give up !
A long cry against violence and injustice.
Crossing31mn54 color stereo 2009 Netherlandsby Frans Van Lentself-productionself-distributionThe 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. Dame de Nage3mn45 color & b/w stereo 2009 Franceby Antoine Misereyself-productionself-distributionOn a boat with reams(trains), the rowlock is an object serving to fix a ream(train).

Here is come the hour of its departure.
He(It) watches the others living. He(it) ' imagines where they go. dead SEEquences4mn20 color stereo 2009 Italyby Fabio Scacchioliself-productionself-distributionThis is a study about the vanishing of an image."dead SEEquences" is composed of 3775 frames. Working frame by frame, we find that nothing happens inside each single image, but all pass between the frames, in the invisible gap that separe one by others. The film is here, but there isn't anything to see, the most important remain invisible and uncertain. There is no truth to discover. The truth is always elsewhere.

Desesmetak2mn52 b/w stereo 2009 Brazilby Kika Nicolelaself-productionself-distributionThis work uses Candomble (African‐Brazilian religion) as inspiration.

Extrants 111mn35 color & b/w stereo 2009 Canadaby Victoria Stantonself-productiondistribution : Groupe Intervention Vidéo"Extrants 1" is an experimental work that deals with the fragmentation of urban fabrics. The source material, made of stills from Montreal and New York, has been computer-generated – the photographer's attempt to perform an autopsy of these stills, to create a spatial dimension for them, to mix and synthetize.

This film explains why. Fascia3mn color & b/w stereo 2008 Canadaby Tamara Vukovself-productiondistribution : Groupe Intervention Vidéo"Fascia" is the non-elastic, fibrous canvas around each part of our body, around muscles and organs. It is what connects the body together, literally. It is both the backdrop and the forefront. A Super 8 meditation on the vital yet subtle and often overlooked connective
matter of our bodies, and how we ignore it at our own peril. Ferment1mn26 color stereo 2009 Polandby Ioann Mariaself-productionself-distributionSurreal ride into delirious darkness of human's mind. A junction between the two characters, whose passion interlaces internally, meets the point of the real interaction within their sexual imagination on the border of perversion. Flickering2mn43 b/w stereo 2009 Brazilby Kika Nicolelaself-productionself-distributionFrom darkness to light and back to darkness; an emotional self-portrait. Follow4mn15 color stereo 2008 USAby Bryant Dameronproduction : Project Octoberdistribution : Project OctoberThis found footage project is based on excerpts from Former US President Jimmy Carter's "Malaise Speech" delivered July 15th 1979. frog test14mn33 color stereo 2009 Israelby Shahar Marcusself-productionself-distributionIn 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.

grimm's girl3mn color sil 2009 USAby Joy Whalenproduction : Joy Productionsdistribution : Joy ProductionsBattered hands are held against a floral backdrop of roses. A nude woman, strong, pale, and marked with deep reddened wounds, slowly moves through frame making gestures that express pain and lamentation that, at times, slip into what could be construed as ecstasy. She presses against, turns, nearly connecting with the viewer. Brief moments are held for a breath and then she breaks away. Grop one´s way1mn17 color stereo 2009 Slovakiaby Lukáš Matejkaself-productionself-distributionDream fragments emerging constantly. Video of a series of fragments. Hairdryer1mn30 color stereo 2008 Germanyby Wilfried Agricola de Cologneself-productionself-distributionThe hairdryer becomes a symbol for desire. Halides12mn50 color stereo 2009 USAby John Davisself-productionself-distributionVoices from the 1960's, original music, and Super 8 film deliver a meditation on the balance of nature, offering a surreal roadmap back to the source. hétérotrophie0mn53 color stereo 2009 Franceby Fabrice Guérinonself-productionself-distributionDigital process eating organic constituents of vegetable origin. Hiémal3mn30 color stereo 2009 Canadaby Aurélie Pedronself-productiondistribution : Groupe Intervention Vidéo"Hiémal" is a series of three short dance videos.

Hypnosis2mn04 color & b/w stereo 2009 Indiaby Aditi Kulkarniself-productionself-distributionAn amalgamation of images meant to travel in a moment to penetrate in a monotonous space- time model. Il s’en passe3mn b/w sil 2008 Canadaby byol-nathalie kimura-lemoineself-productiondistribution : Groupe Intervention VidéoWhile in Paris, I shot some black and white film in Super 8. I decided to leave most of it untouched, as if it was edited in camera. It was a difficult exercise : my room was dark except for the flickering light coming from a lamp, projecting the nostalgia of passing time on the walls. Illumination Complete, Action #55mn22 color stereo 2008 Italyby Andrea Dojmiself-productionself-distributionThe set for the "action # 5" turned out to be a basketball court inside an oratory in Como, Italy. I was no longer interested in the game, but in an unprecedented movement under the sun. The basket structures became a shining hot space ship landed from some far galaxy.
Indie4mn35 color stereo 2009 Canadaby Anne Goldenself-productiondistribution : Groupe Intervention VidéoThe voice of an omnipresent refrigerator takes over. An animal appears. Anthropomorphism and domesticity. Inspector Ruiz(z) in China9mn26 color & b/w mono 2010 Franceby Denis De lapparentself-productionself-distributionPseudo "polar" found footage 100% YouTube. Interworld7mn11 b/w sil 2008 Canadaby Michael Filimowiczself-productionself-distribution"Interworld" is composed of overlapping visual pulses- each pulse being a momentary articulation of the body, engaging in a temporal polemic with the approach to time and change found in Brakhage’s work, which so often ignores the minute repetitions to be discovered in even the most fleeting of perceptual experiences. Ivo Burokvic - The Life of the Fake Artist as a Young Business Model11mn51 color stereo 2008 Germanyby Paul Wiersbinskiself-productionself-distributionThe project documents the ordering of an oil painting after a photoshop image in China and the selling of this piece at a renowned auction. The tension of symbolic and material value and their creation within fine arts are put to a test. In a world of greed, nothing is worth more than something which cannot be sold. Janiceps7mn15 color & b/w stereo 2010 Franceby Augustin Gimelself-productionself-distributionCinematographic Siameses. The music, immaterial by nature, becomes the concrete bond linking projected films. Gathered twins, creatures with two faces, such Janus. je suis Magritte | A Tribute to René Magritte1mn49 color sil 2008 USAby Lucilla Chanself-productionself-distributionAfter seeing Yves Saint Laurent's tributes to Matisse, Picasso, and Braque at De Young, San Francisco, I decided to give a tribute to Magritte.
King Nothing6mn53 color stereo 2008 Germanyby Paul Wiersbinskiself-productionself-distributionIn the near future contemporary art has become a matter of supply and demand. The cabaret of a sadistic curator, greedy collectors and mindless audience is making its way through a blockbuster exhibition of the latest art star. The illusion of endless profit has become reality and the more real it becomes, the more we believe in everything we are told. L'art délicat de la matraque4mn b/w stereo 2009 Franceby Jean-Gabriel Périotself-productiondistribution : HEURE EXQUISE !About the policemen's sensibility. L'échec total2mn24 color stereo 2010 Franceby Christophe Guérinself-productiondistribution : Light ConeTwo destinies: the story of a woman who lives a hopeless solitude meets the lost images of a beloved young woman. La logique de la survie5mn20 color stereo 2008 Argentinaby Gabriela Golderself-productiondistribution : Groupe Intervention VidéoOr the execution of a failed project. A multitude of people rush to receive food. A young man is brutally repressed. This video is made up of three scenes that look at the failure of any reconstruction project. La petite fille aux allumettes14mn color stereo 2009 Canadaby Judith Vienneauself-productiondistribution : Groupe Intervention VidéoInspired by the Christmas tale of Hans Christian Andersen, published for the first time in 1838. Experimental and poetic adaptation of a traditional tale which, for the author, rather becomes a place of exploration and wandering, sensitive to an esthetics close to Street Art. La Vénus au coffret9mn30 color mono 2009 Franceby Olivier Guidouxself-productionself-distributionA man crosses a deserted town and spends the night in a lonely park. In the morning, he decides to explore the place, which seems endless. Landowner4mn color & b/w sil 2009 Portugalby Jonathan Francoself-productionself-distributionThe figure of a man disappears and reappears in a field of abundant vegetation. This movement generates a thematic tension between landscape and portrait. Distinct levels of interpretation and contemplation are enhanced while also exploring possibilities of painting, drawing and photography within the moving images. The black and white picture was taken in the mid fifties. Landscape Memory #12mn color stereo 2009 Brazilby Arthur Tuotoself-productionself-distributionWhy so green and lonely ? The video "Landscape Memory #1" is an abstract piece filmed on a mobile phone. The work reveals how this new media deals with the fragile aspect of the image. Las Vegas Shadows4mn22 b/w stereo 2009 Franceby Christophe Guérinself-productiondistribution : Light ConeLas Vegas : a fast-growing junkspace spreads in the desert, populated by moving shadows. The urban frame and the crowd are condensed into one dimension to form an abstract image of the city, disembodied and melancholic. In a continuous movement that seems endless, the landscape is written. Le bout du monde4mn13 color stereo 2009 Franceby Christian Lajoumardproduction : Acrobates Filmsself-distributionAt Funchal, on the Madeira island, before going across oceans for unknow places, sailors leave on the warfs and seawalls a last message of their attendance.

Living Together Apart2mn40 b/w stereo 2008 Netherlandsby Corrine Botself-productionself-distributionA boy and a girl having breakfast but totally ignoring each other. The boy and the girl actually are the same person. The girl is in the middle of feeling like a girl and a boy. Losing Ground13mn color stereo 2009 Canadaby Isabelle Hayeurself-productionself-distribution"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. Magia6mn35 color stereo 2010 Franceby Gérard Cairaschiself-productiondistribution : HEURE EXQUISE !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. Mala apokalipsa41mn01 color stereo 2008 Sloveniaby Alvaro Petricigproduction : Kinoateljedistribution : 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.
Meaninglessness : Act Two3mn color stereo 2010 Swedenby Anders Webergself-productionself-distributionMeaninglessness. Having no meaning or significance. Mental Laxative12mn25 b/w stereo 2010 Spainby Daniel Rodrigoself-productionself-distribution"Mental laxatives" are the social vaccine to promote people brimming with self-esteem. In the uncertain times of a new media revolution : human beings with high self confidence making independent decisions, taking risks, vigorously pursuing new ideas, and acting on their own initiative are needed to take on the world for the 21st century. Meta Vision4mn16 color & b/w stereo 2008 Taiwanby Hsin-Wei Chenself-productionself-distributionCombined with the footage of 3 different films that already made. This short is about the way we perceive the world. Remaking of films and endowed with now concepts. In a way, we are all blind to witness. Mi nombre es Wilfried6mn30 color stereo 2009 Germanyby Wilfried Agricola de Cologneself-productionself-distributionVisiting Santa Rosa Dell’Agua (a village located at Lake Maracaibo ) becomes an allegory how the author is perceiving his own identity.The Spanish language used in the film, has a specific relevance, but might be any other language than the author's own mother language, it stands for being a stranger, the will to communicate, but also the inability to understand each other. The visit become a re-identification. Midge1mn32 color stereo 2009 USAby Julia Oldhamself-productionself-distribution"Midge" is a performance shot as a reflection on the water. The movements are inspired by the insect nymphs and larvae that live just below the surface. Mudeye1mn51 color stereo 2009 USAby Julia Oldhamself-productionself-distribution"Mudeye" is an exploration of movements found in an aquatic insect community in a creek in Iowa. Music Video for a Pop Song4mn color stereo 2008 USAby L. Ashwyn Collinsself-productionself-distribution"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. my loneliness is a lazy prostitute4mn05 color stereo 2009 USAby Joy Whalenproduction : Joy Productionsdistribution : Joy ProductionsAlthough 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.
My one is bigger than your one2mn48 color stereo 2010 Swedenby Antti Savelaself-productionself-distributionThis is a video about boys playing with cars. Night6mn30 color stereo 2009 Norwayby Farhad Kalantaryself-productiondistribution : The Norwegian Film Institute“Night” is a journey in the dark, and a short film that explores the borders of visibility.
Its gripping sound track carries the film towards deeper layers of darkness as the act of viewing becomes more challenging. “Night” was shot using high definition video from a traveling train in the height of Nordic winter.
nihon blue4mn35 color & b/w stereo 2010 USAby Dan Nadanerself-productionself-distributionImages of travel and inner states interwoven in the midst of a steamy summer in Japan. A visual jam session composed of a fish market, commuters, train stations and crickets.
Objets oubliés16mn35 color & b/w stereo 2009 Italyby Fabio Scacchioliself-productionself-distributionThis film is born from the discover of 4 short film footage in the street (real found footage !) showing : 1. a tourist with a photo camera sit on the ground 2. a small rowing boat go away 3. a couple come down from a staircase 4. a gun shooting from an old, unknown western film. The film protagonist is a voice without a body searching your organic identity between the images. The voice try to find a link between the 4 film footage, but this is extremely difficult, and perhaps useless. The film pictures are : the four real found footage films ; home movies pictures ; documentary pictures in public domain (war films, naturalistic-scientific film, and a film about the day after the rise of Berlin wall); original shooting.
Obsession2mn color stereo 2009 Canadaby Elaine Frigonself-productiondistribution : Groupe Intervention VidéoThe same body at two different times. Tension mounts because of an obsession. One more cliché for performance art !1mn13 color stereo 2009 Canadaby Vienne Chanself-productionself-distributionLet's watch each other under Christopher's burden.I am interested in the role of pain and shock in performance art, and whether the degree of suffering involved can affect our perception of artistic "authenticity".

The videos are dedicated to the natural landscape and artificial, talking about the wild and untouched and places contaminated by man. "Landscape II" in the video player is the sea, not sunny and summer as we are accustomed to see and dream more closely, but a sea obscured by clouds and a little threatening, wrapped in a mystery of nature. The images are accompanied by music that blends the colors gently with cold and wet scenario. passageway2mn30 color & b/w stereo 2010 USAby Dan Nadanerself-productionself-distributionMoving at different paces at different times, through biology and the machine.

Primitive Earth Series Part 1 : Volcanoes5mn51 color stereo 2010 USAby Catherine Gilbert & Jeff Burnsproduction : Gratuitous Art Productionsdistribution : Gratuitous Art ProductionsGratuitous 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.

They remain like this for hours throughout the day, indifferent and anonymous to what is happening around them, undisturbed from noise and imminent danger.

RIP in Pieces America62mn color stereo 2009 Canadaby Dominic Gagnonself-productionself-distributionI was watching video on the Internet and I noticed that certain homemade clips were flagged for their content.

Scream3mn color stereo 2009 Netherlandsby Marina Chernikovaself-productionself-distributionThe image of charming playing children transforms into a schematic image of mutants, following their rituals. Gradually the sound of their voices gives rise to a feeling of unrest and alarm. The video image becomes distorted, subordinating itself to the ever increasing volume, and even disappears completely.

Signs of Crisis11mn b/w stereo 2010 Portugalby Jonathan Francoself-productionself-distributionAn experimental video documentation of two homeless and unemployed men, with nowhere to go and nothing to do, sitting like living statues at the main entrance of an empty, almost abandoned and haunted, seven floor offices building situated on one of the main avenues of the city of Lisbon, Portugal. They seem to be depressed and hopeless in some kind of silent manifestation. The banging sounds heard throughout the film are the cry against the human tragedy and the real estate crisis. There are so many people without homes and so many homes without people. Silent Cry3mn30 color stereo 2008 Germanyby Wilfried Agricola de Cologneself-productionself-distributionSilent Cry is the visualization of an internal cry happening all the time, when society does not allow to show deep emotional affection. The silent cry is always present caused by never ending traumatizations during decades hidden behind the facade people wants to see. And even if the cry would be seen or heard, people would refuse to face it.

Spin1mn35 color stereo 2009 USAby L. Ashwyn Collinsself-productionself-distributionSpin depicts four simultaneous shots of a peculiar fly. The intimacy of the perspective along with the four similar, but distinct shots disrupt the viewer's sense of time and space. This forces the viewer to question the relationship between the four videos, shifting the focus of the imagery between movement and stillness, humor and dread, illness and vitality. Stepping on the Light9mn45 color stereo 2008 Canadaby Michael Filimowiczself-productionself-distribution"Stepping on the Light" explores two extremes of video display scales, that of pocket video and large scale projection. The noise in the imagery, an effect of the technology of portable image capture, is reproduced in the soundtrack, which marries noise and video game soundscapes. Stretching4mn30 color stereo 2009 Franceby François Vogelproduction : Drosofilmsself-distribution"Stretching" is a peculiar display of urban gymnastics.

Surplus5mn40 color stereo 2008 Serbiaby Doplgengerproduction : Doplgengerdistribution : DoplgengerFormally intervening with found footage of commercials, this experimental video allows one to rethink image while creating narrative which discovers one of many skillfully covered senses of media images. As the title suggests this video performs Lacan's opinion that in contemporary capitalism 'surplus value' is no longer capitalized for later libidinal enjoyment - nowadays surplus value is re-invested in production process. Surveillance Suite6mn24 color stereo 2009 USAby Joshua Pablo Rosenstockself-productionself-distributionThere are countless anonymous networked cameras that broadcast publicly over the Internet. In "Surveillance Suite", I harvest selected ambient video streams and transform them into time-lapse musical video compositions. The minutiae of these tiny vignettes become rhythmic micro-narratives, dramatizing temporary and fleeting moments that are ordinarily invisible in our experience of everyday life. swimmer6mn27 color stereo 2010 Franceby Hanna Husbergself-productionself-distributionA presence in a vast exterior, a journey without goal. Terrain Vague - Nuit Urbaine16mn30 color stereo 2008 Franceby Viktor Furiani & Frédéric Kahnself-productionself-distributionStrange kaleidoscope, superposition game, vanishing points, abstract diversions. The tones are spreading, embracing the tempo of an electronic music that is circular and sly. Everything is rushing, stricken by saturations but also surrounded by delicate loops. The Adventure Of Monica4mn34 b/w sil 2009 United Kingdomby Matthew Verdonself-productionself-distributionTwo excerpts from the 1960 film "L’Avventura" by Michelangelo Antonio have been combined to show actress Monica Vitti running up and down a corridor. She is in the midst of a frantic search however the subject of her search is not shown in the present work. The two clips are alternately repeated, gradually fading with time, so the act of searching or looking is embodied for the viewer of the work who has to look harder in order to see the darkening image. the catch1mn color stereo 2009 USAby L. Ashwyn Collinsself-productionself-distribution"the catch" consists of a single minute-long close-up shot of a pair of hands combing through hair. The image is beautiful, yet the perspective is uncomfortably close. In addition, the delicate hand movements are juxtaposed with escalating audio and, eventually, a quietly violent act. The audio overdramatizes this act leaving the viewer to contend with her perception of cinematic conventions. The Cloud Editions3mn53 color stereo 2009 Swedenby Tina Willgrenself-productionself-distribution6 short videos. We do have expectations that something will happen here.

The Hunters3mn20 color & b/w sil 2009 Portugalby Jonathan Francoself-productionself-distributionA sequence of images, appearing to be drawings and paintings, ends with the photograph of two men beside the corpse of a dead animal. The weapon used in the killing is also proudly displayed. There is a contrast between aesthetic and documental imagery from almost abstraction to something portraying a real event. The pictures are remembrance of the exoticisms of colonialism and the relationship of man with beast, hunter and the hunted, which somehow never seems to change. The MBC @ The Office3mn07 color stereo 2008 USAby Sarah Buckius & Melanie Manosself-productionself-distributionIn 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.
The MBC Rearranging Space10mn13 color stereo 2009 USAby Sarah Buckius & Melanie Manosself-productionself-distributionIn this piece, we build structures that are at once ordered and precarious, purposeful and purposeless. In the process, we rearrange the space in infinite ways, revealing the method by which humans often pack and unpack, arrange and rearrange space, construct and deconstruct, and build and rebuild following collapse. From the everyday to the metaphoric, this work is a consideration of human perseverance, industriousness, and the often ludicrous business in our everyday lives. the process2mn09 color stereo 2009 USAby Henry Gwiazdaself-productionself-distributionMy work is about the choreography of reality. It's about the way everything moves and is interconnected to create beauty. Each small, choreographed scene can be appreciated for itself, but on subsequent viewings, takes on a separate meaning. They become metaphors for our lives, our dreams and ourselves. The Vase1mn color sil 2009 USAby Jeremy Newmanself-productionself-distributionIn this video, a mysterious young woman clips off sunflower heads, wrecking havoc on a vase of crickets. The desperate, yet graceful movements of the insects are a silent plea against environmental degradation.

Twilight Timelapse Concert for George Ives4mn45 color stereo 2008 USAby Neil Needlemanself-productionself-distributionGeorge 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.

Valstar Requiem4mn48 color & b/w stereo 2009 Franceby Antoine Misereyself-productionself-distributionThis 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.

Wound Footage6mn06 color stereo 2009 Germanyby Thorsten Fleischself-productionself-distributionSource 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.
