I HATE THIS TOWN

Nicolas Provost
"Softcore images on hardcore rhythms". This video consists of a collage of extravagant character action close-ups in porn films. Their suggestive movements were repetitively edited onto the rhythms of electronic music, resulting in a slapstick situation....

BABULIA [SECOND CHAPTER OF INSTALLATION, ENGLISH VERSION]

Nora Martirosyan
"Two chapters, two time periods, one story. On the one hand, 1937, at the height of the Stalinist purges in Erevan, in the soviet Armenia, the year of the arrest of Nora Dabagian’s father who was a political dissident. On the other hand, 2006, the circumstantial story of this arrest related by the old woman, affectionally known as Baboulia, who was a very young girl in the 1930ies...

LA DISPARITION

A couple is travelling to the South. One night in a hotel room the young woman vanishes. This is the beginning of a search, as more and more birds start circling over the landscape, casting a threatening shadow over the mystery...

QUE SERÁ SERÁ: MELODRAMA

In a marginal urban trailer park, a hungry pig eats a newborn baby, while the mother is away. Through a peeping hole a woman is singing about this horrible fait-divers. Images of babies and pigs are projected on the background....

THE PHILOSOPHER OF PHOTOGRAPHY VILÉM FLUSSER

Miklós Peternák - András Sólyom
Possibly the last interview of the media philosopher Vilém Flusser’s life to the crew of Hungarian television’s FRIZ-productions. His achievements gained international prominence in the late 1970’s. His approach to the theory of mechanical images broke with all earlier approaches. He saw in these images the first examples of the post-historical era...

NEAR AND FAR / NOW AND THEN

Ken Kobland
A two-part film, one part unedited camera footage of a late Autumn to Winter woods, and the other a highly manipulated blue-screen re-photography process. Each part mimics the action of the other. Each is involved with a background-foreground, motion-to-still image juxtaposition: with the whole to the part, the arrested moment to the one just gone, the nostalgia of space and time.

MEET THE PEOPLE

Shelly Silver
"Blurring the line between documentary and fiction, truth and artifice, Meet the People presents fourteen ’characters’ who face the camera in talking head close-ups and speak about their lives and dreams...
