BE CAREFUL! SOME VIOLENT IMAGES OF THIS MOVIE CAN CHOCK THE AUDIENCE

H2O3

Farideh Shahsavarani
Iran | 2014 | 1 min 20

Water………purity of life. Flood………rages and death, Existence, Presence of death…..
The man. The myth of seeing and craving and wish. And desire. And fear…..
Power… Power… And power…..

Folk Songs

Nino Laisné
France | 2014 | 12 min 27

‘Folk Songs’ presents testimonies of illegal migrants and victims of trafficking. Some discreet stories, marked by spontaneous songs especially moving. A unique approach of memory and uprooting.

Dust

Daniel Wechsler
Israel | 2015 | 3 min 42

The yet to be titled visual technique for ‘Dust’ is a result of user and CPU mistakes-I shouldn’t have pressed that, and the CPU shouldn’t have done that. From that point on, it only seemed natural to combine one fatal error with a few minor ones.

The barbarians

Michel Pavlou
Norway-Greece | 2015 | 10 min

A series of scenes of a besieged city, shaken by riots, associated with Cavafy’s and Aeschylus’ verses, fuses the narrative with the historical time and question the diachronic nature of power struggle.

Resist (DISAPPEARING HAPPINESS)

Dragana Zarevac
Serbia | 2015 | 4 min 06

The video ‘Resist: Disappearing Happiness’ deals with feelings of disappointment, frustration, rage, fear and insecurity: emotions which are hidden behind simple joyful melodies, playful hopping and clapping hands.
