Bernard Mulliez
In different short sequences, a man talks directly in the camera about human management that organises its discourse towards success, dictates values, roles and objectives reuniting individuals in a group. Leadership is recognised as a more appropriate means to satisfy the longings of a group than allowing its individual members to provide for their own needs themselves...

LETTER HOME

An van. Dienderen
Letter Home is a film letter - without the use of narration - in which the touristic images of the artist's trip to Japan are digitally distorted. The basic strategy of this type of digital corruption is copying, which is used in the film to challenge the western perception of Japan as a ‘copying culture’...

MY HEART OF MY COMING INTO BEING

Anne-Mie Van Kerckhoven
