A collage of landscape; an interview with filmaker, Leslie Thorton, while she is hooked up to a lie detector; a dance in a red dress. Landscapes in places as various as China, France, California. There aree so many images of landscape. Why would anyone travel when we can travel in our imaginations? Digital video cut with Super-8 and 16mm film.

sadescription Alone, apart : the dream reveals the waking day
7mn   color & b/w   stereo   2004   USA
by Mark Street
An hommage to the two ramshackle cities, made up of footage shot while wandering. I meander city streets with a camera, looking to be haunted by unfamiliar vistas. I find solace in the forgotten landscapes, odd voices on a ham radio, shimmering water in a desolate harbor. Later I attack the film, moving it this way and that, trying to squeeze it against its will, wrest strangeness from the everyday.

sadescription circumvisions
30mn   color   stereo   2005   Canada
by Emmanuel Avenel & Marie-France Giraudon
A circumpolar navigation between reality and illusion, the lived and the imaginary, becomes a strange odyssey in the wonderful world of mirages, in search of something beyond boundaries, horizons, infinity. This mythic journey reorients satellite imagery, radar telemetry and cartography into geographical incoherence and disruptions of the machinery. Here the perception of reality gives way to pure illusion.

sadescription Floodland
10mn44   color & b/w   stereo   2004   France
by Elie Barrau
This is the tale of an uncharted land which is never in the same place twice. Lost in the sea, Floodland is an emerging, shamelessly, decadent area, constantly adrift. Viral and animal, accidentally damaged by the flows, Floodland fells the need to dive, to emerge, to get away. Automatic growth, internal engines are working below the water level. So far or so close, we never see Floodland. Some people says they went there,some celebrities use to spend a few time under the channel and sometimes the fun starts 30,000 feet underneath the sea.

Some pictures of the world ; a girl running away under attack, tanks on the road, rush of people… World of pictures… Pictures are passing and mixing each others, on black and white, doing echo of gilles Deleuze’s voice from a congress gave at La Femis in 1987 : "What is a créating act ?". This vidéo result from a way of thinking and performances about trans-disciplinarities called Urgence(s), preoccupied by the question : what is the place of an artist in the community ?

sadescription La Nuit
17mn05   color   stereo   2004   Belgium
by Catherine Menoury
The Night - is it really that dark ? Or is the Night the victim of our inability to see through it? Are our nights restless, nightmarish because we are afraid of not seeing or is it fear that obscures our senses? To be in the Night and to see, to fear because we see, turning back, wavering, to reflect upon one's own existence, to leave or to keep going. Keep going because the circle is not complete. Unless the circle spirals and so can never lead to an end, but becomes and always grows. We are deaf and blind, we can see at night, we are clairvoyant. We are dead and we are alive. The Night - is it black, luminous or white ?

sadescription Slow Force Glimpse
4mn   color & b/w   stereo   2004   USA
by Brook Hinton
A feverish reverie in which images glimpsed from a train window become lodged in a dream-like world of menace and beauty. This is the first in a planned series of works by Brook Hinton based on the concept of introjection - the uncounscious internalization of external phenomena. In psychology the term usually refers to the incorporation of external personalities or ideas (i.e., parental voices) into the personality : Hinton is more interested in the psychological impact of the things we encounter in passing.

sadescription Tease
7mn37   color   stereo   2004   France
by Kennedy JAMES
Video work from pornographic movies found on the web (p2p). Those short videos are loops which advance in the narration by the addition of one picture added at the end of each loop.This movie is about repetition of the gesture and movement of the body. This repetition gives an erotic signification but also an hysteric meaning to those images issued from pornographic movies.

sadescription Try to understand
6mn   color   mono   2005   France
by Corinne Dardé
"Try to understand" is a cover version of "the trap", a song by Kat Onoma, which was mixed with Jack Spicer's voice reading out "Billy the Kid" in a San Francisco bookshop in 1959. This video is an attempt at re-viving the links between the text, the voice, the music and the revival of the text by Burger, as if we were going back and forth between the source of the evocation (a fading memory, a small river, the narrator and the kid, is it a trap ?) and the numerous images it generates. Repetitions, disclosures, erasures, the memory of a time internal to nature.
