sadescription Périphérique
3mn59   color & b/w   stereo   2008   USA
by Dan Nadaner
One is in a crowd. Where does the mind go when it wonders where everyone is going? "Périphérique" is a metaphor for the unpredictable thoughts that pass through the mind in any place, any situation. In the city. Driving the ring road. In a recovery room. In a state of exhaustion. The half-heard sounds. The ideas on the periphery.

6mn   b/w   stereo   2008   France

sadescription Remains
6mn   color   stereo   2008   Israel
by Guli Silberstein
A video dream, composed from six image scenes, one minute long each. The grainy blown-up images are collected from various sources, detached from context, accompanied by a distorted Bach soundtrack. The video concerns perception, visual representation and sense of diffusion. What is happening in between the pixels ?

sadescription Identity Theft
2mn   color   stereo   2007   USA
by Neil Needleman
This is a true story that teaches schmendricks like me a valuable lesson: Always check your bank statements to see if unscrupulous, underhanded, deceitful, remorseless, thieving perverts have their hands in your cookie jar. (And I hate to think where their hands had been before.)

sadescription Chiens italiens

sadescription Sisyphe
8mn28   color   stereo   2008   France
by Inés Wickmann
Lost in the middle of a labyrinth of walls, stairs and halls, a being begins his eternal ascent, evoking to the mythical Sisyphus in his infinite task. In this skyless, empty space, a body moves with wavering steps.

sadescription Iceland
4mn19   b/w   stereo   2006   France
by Fabienne Gautier
Iceland's landscape seemed to reflect a particular internalization of feeling. The piece was shot in B&W super 8 while driving across Iceland in 2004. This work speaks to this internal mind.

sadescription 1969
1mn15   color   stereo   2006   France
by Nicolas Gerber
The projects that interest me are in the fields of artconomy, improvisation, experimental measures, circulation and "recuperation", rituals, forgotten technologies...

A hypnotic 4 part journey into the individualistic regime of “motivational” salesmanship that travels through industrial, pastoral and institutional landscapes of catatonic conventionality and cultish capitalism.

sadescription Neighbour’s TV mealtime
10mn42   color   stereo   2007   Netherlands
by Milos Peskir & Vesna Spasic
Video art piece “Neighbour’s TV mealtime” constructed as a collage of constant change of material as a random switched from one to another, reminds on switching TV channels. Still material is captured in certain concept of hard and light spheres. Searching for adequate visual solutions more than for reasonable story line. Even so team is surely there looking in to the somebody’s/neighbour’s plate/TV taste/unspecified circle thoughts.
