Join us for a Moviehouse that takes you on a journey through the wild world of dreams. At points terrifying and tantalizing at others, but it’s always entertaining. These ix films will leave you guessing at what’s real and what’s make believe.
As with all good dreams, VJ Clay Franklin provides the soundtrack before and after the show. And this time he’s got some help from Sebastian Alva and his Sand Animation Box.
This program is presented in collaboration with FLUID New Media Lab.
This interactive piece is a Fluid New Media Laboratory work. The producers got inspired by sand animations found on the web. Tattoo artist “Cebiche” took the task of building a light box that will serve as the support for making drawings over sand in sequences that played in fast forward will create an animation.
The piece blends the artist’s personal recollections and experiences along with ancient folktales in a hybrid and personal mythology. A narrative translated through allegory, riddle and metaphor into deeper realms of mystery, beauty and the grotesque.
A Love Story by Aldo Giannotti & Stefano Giuriati
Two Italian police officers discover ‘Westhoek’. They cross the Belgium and French border as well as the French and German border in a simple open and light environment where the illusion of fresh sea breeze can be breathed. The locals have a particular and unique sense of the border.
Inodo is an invented word that denotes an inward-bound voyage of initiation and takes us into the allegory of an imagined world. If exodus is about endless wandering, being pursued and going from one place to another, a kind of mythic curse in search of a homeland, the term Ínodo / Inodus that Verónica Eguaras has created for the video’s title expresses the opposite: tense quietude, being tied to atavistic space whose tellurism involves awakening the fable of an inhospitable universe, secret and closed, where one finds all manner of astonishing phenomena. Life is this: A refuge of multiple surmounting in which powers of observation come awake, whose keenness lights up discovery by means of unusual signs.
Roue is a Chinese word meaning to rub back and forth and disorder something. The film is composed of the fragments of my dreams, childhood memories and emotions. The experiences of memory bring me all feelings, both positive and negative. By producing this short film, I explored my unconscious, record my thoughts as a track, and create a way to heal myself. I aim to touch my mind and see through myself, from the past to now.
This video is shot in Colombia at the Guajira peninsula in the northernmost part of South America. It is a reflection of imperceptible variations of each life cycle.
