HERE IS EVERYTHING

Cooper Battersby - Emily Vey Duke
Here Is Everything presents itself as a message from The Future, as narrated by a cat and a rabbit, spirit guides who explain that they’ve decided to speak to us via a contemporary art video because they understand this to be our highest form of communication. Their cheeky introduction, however, belies the complex set of ideas that fill the remainder of the film...

OUR CIRCUMSCRIBED DAYS

Hans Van den Broeck
In 1999 Hans Van Den Broeck made this rhythmical portrait of Moscow. He did not focus on the real Moscow, but rather on the myth of the metropolitan city, with its inhabitants as actors. He wanted to capture the Russian spirit, in all its absurdity. Conflict situations, incongruities, funny or absurd situations, however minimal, drew his attention...

LOOKING DOWN

Bernard Gigounon
A ship, filmed from above, is slowly moving through the image: the bow, the deck, and the metal cover plates. As soon as the camera arrives at the load, however, consisting of sand and stones, something weird happens: the load turns into a Martian landscape, it seems as if the camera is transforming into a satellite, exploring some barren planet...
