sadescription A Refutation of Time
8mn16   color   mono   1999   USA
by Dan Boord & Greg Durbin & Luis Valdovino
"Using the device of an extraordinary lengthy piece of anonymous e-mail received by the narrator, the tape describes the kind of collapse of time and space and serendipitous chains of meaning that can occur using search vehicles on the internet. Juxtaposing various personalities including Will Rogers and Jorge Luis Borges; different geographical locations such as stops along Route 66, coincidence becomesmetaphor takes on the ring of truth."

sadescription Dieu est en réparation
15mn   color   mono   2001   France
by Sylvain Frebourg
"Dieu est en réparation"... is my first realization video. It acts upon an agressive confrontation between image and sound. The image haunted by the reflection; this parasite is the visual equivalent of feedback from sound. Their presence in the heart of the film represents the limit; it's when the image and the sound contain that which justifies their existence. This film is therefore the research of theobscurity behind each image and the silence behind each sound. This justifies the film beginning and ending in a cemetery.

sadescription La vie mode d'emploi
12mn45   color   mono   2000   France
by Edwige Mandrou
We experienced a intercept functioning like joining, disruption, hypnosis, generators of ideas. The synchronous character of the image and the sound at high speed is essential with the osmosis of hearing and the vision, with the bringing together of time and space. We use a camera amateur, and a technique "round-rise" simple. The video image is treated musicalement (sequences, loops, cuts).

sadescription Mamilo
3mn23   b/w   sil   2000   Brazil
by Tatiana Martins de Mello
The video "Mamilo" (bosom) was produced in a very simple and spontaneous fashion. The support is the artist's own body (a theme approached by certain contemporary artists, using electronic means and even information technology). This video is without a doubt the negation of the visual violence produced by the big hollywoodiennes manufacturers of emotions and this appears through the transformations, from the antagonistic states to states of strong sensations.

A sound band almost more important than the images intersected with black. Impressions ? Outlines which bring on a decisive race : a soldier on a ground of war. That does occur it in its head during and before daring to launch out in a race of attack ?
