2mn56   color & b/w   stereo   2010   France
by Emmanuel Morvan
As in a strange dream, atmospheres, forms get involved the some in the others, repeat, contradict themselves or assemble. Are they fragments of memories, run-ups of imagination?

sadescription being shot
5mn   color   stereo   2010   United Kingdom
by Guli Silberstein
A video of a handcuffed blindfolded man detained by soldiers on the street, and dreamlike images of abstract shapes and patterns in rocks and water, are synthesised by a distortion of the video signal, creating unsettling confusion and linkage between the tragic and the poetic, and between different uses of the sense of vision.

sadescription Domestic Rhythms
6mn   color & b/w   stereo   2009   USA
by Jeremy Newman
This video begins with Rapunzel’s fairy tale wedding. Selected clips from the children’s animation depict her marriage falling apart. Newsreel footage of fashion models and sequences from a film about communication technology are linked to the witch. The implication is that the mass media casts a spell that disenchants viewers.

sadescription Staring Into Infinity
4mn50   color   stereo   2010   United Kingdom
by Guli Silberstein
Composed from fragments of reality captured by a mobile phone and a home digital video camcorder, the video contains a surreal journey into ‘non-places’ of childhood in which an older self is following a younger self, re-acquiring a sense of empowerment and quietness. The glitches and imperfections of image and sound suggest a relation between digital form and human perception.

sadescription Nightlife in a puddle
8mn   b/w   stereo   2010   Italy
by Fabio Scacchioli
This is an hallucination after the storm. In super 8, dark, lightning and disappearing scratched roads. Discovering that a village festivity is also possible in a puddle at night is both terrible and sublime. Are the images that drown and disappear in memory, or are we drowning, while the images observe us from an unreachable time?

sadescription Frequency Mass
4mn35   b/w   stereo   2011   USA
by John Davis
Experimenting with light, movement, and various darkroom techniques, abstraction and 
repetition coalesce in an array of chance encounters. A full immersion into an otherworldly mix of light and sound.

sadescription Au déjeuner, les colibris étaient bègues
3mn45   color & b/w   stereo   2010   Canada
by Danielle Raymond
Memories made up of family archives, radio archives of Expo 67 and the voice of a woman trying to remember the place, atmosphere and context. In a space that feels domestic, a fireplace and sofa serve as backdrop for different portraits, the reunion of two sisters and a parade of hats. Outside, a crack in a wall reveals a picnic lunch. Images are captured through a 'recorder-projector', a device created by the artist.

sadescription You Can See the Sun in Late December
6mn30   color   stereo   2010   USA
by Sasha Waters Freyer
Beautiful emptiness, anguish and calm, absence rendered visible and traces of presence in the winter light, all intensified by the damned (non) question of maternity. Filming every frigid day in the final month as a strategy for overcoming deflated motivation.
