Fecha de creación: 5/22/2016
Un retorno al País de las Maravillas en la crisis de la mediana edad. Alguien roba el teléfono de Viejo. Desafortunadamente, su móvil está conectado con su correo electrónico, así que él puede seguir viendo las fotografías que el ladrón está tomando con su cámara. Viejo se traslada a Berlín en su busca. Las cosas se vuelven todavía más surrealistas cuando se da cuenta de que el ladrón podría ser completamente diferente a lo que pensaba hasta ahora. Street Art Symphony es una ficción que tiene lugar en el escenario real que suponen las calles del barrio de Kreuzberg. Una extraña historia de amor de coste cero, realizada sin actores pero con artistas urbanos y músicos en su lugar, cargada de experimentación y efectos no-tan especiales. Una sinfonía en cuatro movimientos y cuatro lenguajes distintos, que sucede entre los muros de esta parte de Berlín porque ellos son, más que nunca, una metáfora perfecta de esta Europa en proceso de remodelación.

RGB Colour Model / España
Dirección: Blanca Rego
Fecha de creación: 7/21/2016

WARNING: This film contains flashing images. Digital animation based on the additive synthesis RGB (red-green-blue) colour model—the primary colours of light. The shapes move and overlap in a constant flicker that generates complementary colours and entoptic phenomena, assaulting the eyeballs and assassinating the normative consciousness of the viewer. A piece that does not happen only on the screen, but in our neurons. The soundtrack are the film frames themselves saved as audio files, using a data bending process inspired by the optical sound experiments by filmmakers such as Norman McLaren, Lis Rhodes, Guy Sherwin, etc. What you see is exactly the same that what you hear.

Broken / Serbia
Dirección: Ana Cuzovic
Fecha de creación: 9/29/2015
Trailer: https://vimeo.com/141848869

Broken is a loop video, made as an art experiment in the field of composite digital picture. Video creates virtual imaginary space with an idea to lead the viewer into new digital ambience. The aim of the project is to explore the issue of constructed images, the way people experience space and perceive the world around them. In Broken, a camera is an animated ‘eye’ that flow into the unexplored landscape and reveilles its hidden corners and meanings. Landscape hides layered image structure that is waiting to be revealed. The identity of these images is unknown. Sometimes they are parts of familiar imaginary but still not recognizable, except in fragments. They are rearranged, mixed, cut, composed or generated as fragments of landscape, so we can recognize them differently but not essentially. Which is to say that “we missed their being, and that therefore we missed them altogether” (Barthes 1981: 66). They refer to images caught in in the blink of an eye, through the window of airplane, car, high speed train, on a computer screen or via satellite. The underlying character of nomadic and unsettled contemporary society is mirrored in the flow of unfamiliar imagery in the video. In a culture of constant acceleration and progress, we are used to transition and skimming.

Monoton roter Gnom / Austria
Dirección: Vera Sebert
Producción: Vera SebertFecha de creación: 1/31/2016

Text fragments and moving lights appear, shaped like abstracted aquariums, windows and screens, overlaying each other and disappearing into a black and endless room. Inside a sphere that neither consists of air nor water, our view is banished by the glowing composition and entraped into an absent- minded and hypnotised stare. The strange sound of fish-voices, artificial colors and grainy footage stimulate the senses and generate their own narration that manages without story.

Textfragmente und bewegte Lichtquellen in Gestalt abstrahierter Aquarien, Fenster und Bildschirme erscheinen, überlagern sich und verschwinden im schwarzen gestaltlosen Raum. In einer Sphäre, die weder Luft noch Wasser sein kann, fesselt die Leuchtkomposition den Blick und verführt zu selbstvergessenem hypnotisiertem Starren. Der befremdende Klang von Fischstimmen, künstliche Farben und gezielt verrauschte Aufnahmen reizen die Sinne und erzeugen ein eigenes Narrativ, das ohne Geschichte auskommt.

Stuff As Dreams
Dirección: Guli Silberstein
Fecha de creación: 10/1/2016
Family moments, travelling snippets, and media events of terror-panic. Glitching and morphing techniques turn the footage to flowing painterly texture, progressing in dream-logic. Attention is drawn to processes of image-perception, questioning their representation, credibility, and the emotions they carry. ”These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits, and Are melted into air, into thin air…We are such stuff As dreams are made on; and our little life Is rounded with a sleep.” (Shakespeare, The Tempest)

Ignorance
Dirección: Reem Al Shihabi
United Arab Emirates
A film that explores the fear of the unknown. We live in a world where most conform. We are instilled with fear of change, so we suppress our knowledge. We fear the dark, but we somehow choose to accept it, because it is much simpler than recognising the beauty of the light.

The result – a creative piece with no planned narrative.

IrIs 2.0 / Alemania
Dirección: Isabella Gresser
Producción: Isabella Gresser
Originally she is called Lucretia, but I call her IrIs – scanned and beautified on behalf of a new religion of optimization. The experimental video deconstructs a painting by Lucas Cranach the Younger which shows an aristocratic woman of Germany at that time. The name Lucretia goes back to a semi-legendary figure in the history of the Roman Republic. Lucretia was famous for her beauty and virtue. The myth of “the Rape of Lucretia” has been always an inspiration for mainly male musicians, artists and writers. In the digital age and within a media society, violence and manipulation is more and more directed against oneself and the own body.

Dirección: Irina Rubina

Secret Sounds / Holanda
Dirección: Simon Muskitta , Stephan van den Brin
Secret Sounds is a journey through emotions and objects that are usually inaudible. By taking nine inaudible subjects Simon and Stephan want to share their perspective on the relationship between images and sound. Why are there sounds? What does sound mean? And why do we get certain feelings from a sound? These were some of the many questions they asked themselves during this project. The directors are fascinated by music, the sound of a conversation and noise of textures. Basically sound in general. With this film Simon and Stephan want to create awareness for the sounds surrounding us in our daily life. Simon and Stephan asked six divers sound designers to give their interpretation of the inaudible subjects, resulting in nine different never been heard sounds for the animations.

AM/FM / Reino Unido
Dirección: Thomas Hicks
Two characters life stories are presented across a radio timeline on the AM and FM frequencies. Their lives are depicted from birth to death together and apart. As time passes the dial moves freely from left to right and right to left across the timeline to different narrative moments. The characters stories are told in a non-linear way and correspond to objects from an old suitcase that features within the film. As each object from the suitcase is revealed a section of the characters story is presented on screen.

Transitions / Portugal
Dirección: Ana Barroso
Producción: Ana B.

This film is an internal journey that poses the same metaphysical questions we have been questioning for centuries: as material beings we also wonder about this world that is not palpable and we can’t totally understand but that we can somehow feel and makes us immensely human. The monastery where she strolls creates this peaceful and intangible atmosphere and the beautiful architecture evokes the threshold between the real and the metaphysical world. The score is built to produce a mirror effect and it may well evoke both worlds. Each person endures his/her own path to this initiatory experience that may be religious or philosophical but it certainly will take him to a different place from that where he/she is now.
