4mn39 color sil 2011 USA
by Stephanie Barber
A collection of titles from a honeymoon trip around the world in the early 1950's. The poetics of the words assert themselves, diminish the images which are tethered, physically and as regards our understanding of place, to the names of the sights. The entirety becomes a moving and concrete poem.

2mn54 color stereo 2012 France
by Gilivanka Kedzior & Barbara Friedman
« Sometimes, when everywhere around darkness smothers the last breaths by its density, images come to us. Fleeting visions that play with our reason, as many isolated beacons ; enigmatic signals revealing another space-time, lost, forgotten, hidden. Troubled by the masquerade of screen memories, voices are raised ; familial and familiar exchanges take place again, for a moment, underlining the obviousness of the unspoken.
Yet I had erased the traces of that other story. »

by Jeremy Newman
"Living Things" critiques the depiction of gender and science in Cold War era B-movies. In these films, women are victimized as science goes horribly awry. Yet, representational violence is veiled by absurdity. This experimental video highlights the cultural anxieties, shifting gender roles and scientific progress, which fostered these representations.

Dusk of places... A progressive redemption of look ; short existence of light here low.
5mn25 color stereo 2013 Italy
by Salvatore Insana
In front of my eyes there are your faces, in front of my lens there are your activities, in front of my soul there are your monsters. Looking out the window with tremble and fear, capturing the neighbours' external interface. But that's not a peep inside, is a dwelling on what comes out.
Against Mental Castration
5mn37 color stereo 2013 Croatia
by Karlo Vranjes
"Against Mental Castration" catch thirst for love and eroticism in the visual arts.
This is a tribute to the men and women who have dedicated their professional lives
to create a free and open society. The video is a claim against censorship and politics in the creative process. Eroticism against social enslavement.
Give and Take no. 06
3mn38 color stereo 2012 USA
by Joy Whalen
Here, we witness the honest, nearly sentimental, grappling’s with the ethereal nature of love and it’s loss as the subject in give&take no.06 mourns her own to the point of slipping into abstraction. This work handles a moment where in spite of best efforts a love flickers out…as it sometimes is known to do.
1mn color & b/w dolby stereo 2011 Austria
by Johannes Gierlinger
Like Jeanne d'Arc in front of the scaffold, clueless. Finally, a fight, they come to get her, the redeeming handshake. Out of the hands, on the hands, that’s how you can read broken time: because something is eliminated, combed, scratched and lovely caressed. Perhaps the velvet
glove is the connecting through time. For an alliance it´s taken off. Something is sealed: memory and dream play off against each other, the best fighter will be adopted. And ultimately it burns to
ashes, the famous story, it was all a dream. Maybe she was the boy that she kissed, at least she resembles him. The image section and traces on the material are covering the secret. Serious men
come up to exterminate her. "Deform Your Dreams" as the only liberation.

“Nature has endowed the wing with the power of lifting the heavy to the heights where wells the race of the gods. Of all physical things, it is the most involved of the divine”. Phaedrus, Plato

3mn25 color stereo 2012 United Kingdom
by Guli Silberstein
A poetic video work: a young woman is blocking two armed soldiers from firing at protesters in a Palestinian village. The image is digitally processed and slowed down. The soundtrack is replaced with lyrical music. The scene is turned to a peculiar romantic dance, highlighting the magical and rare human connection formed for a brief moment, captured and transmitted by digital technology. The work deconstructs oppressors-protesters conflict, crystallising it to one on one poetic encounter, and at the same time offers an alternative in the young woman's action.
8mn30 color stereo 2013 USA
by Salise Hughes
Based on, and using manipulated footage from the 1963 film of the same name, with Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn. The film is about a man who is constantly changing his identity.
