sadescription Farewell Transmission
14mn05   b/w   stereo   2017   Canada
by Mike Rollo
The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation opened the doors of the CBK Transmitter Station in 1939 to serve the prairie region of Canada. Farewell Transmission is equal parts indexical record of the demolition of CBK in 2015 and subjective response to the residual media documenting the event. The building is framed with tension preceding its destruction: emulsion pulsates as if with decades of radio transmission, creating an unsettled eulogy for a cultural institution.

sadescription 165708
6mn37   color & b/w   stereo   2017   Canada
by Josephine Massarella
Shot in 16mm B&W lm using single frame photography, 165708 employs in-camera techniques and chemical manipulation of processed lm to produce an eidetic study of temporal elasticity. Stop motion, icker, tinting, toning, combined with cycles of alternating exposed frames, imbue the work with a rhythmic magnetism, apparent both in the tempo and the aesthetic of the images. Music by Graham Stewart.

sadescription LA COGNIZIONE DEL CALORE (The Heat Cognition)
11mn35   color   stereo   2017   Italy
by Salvatore Insana
The heat cognition. A summer day in a city park. a scorcher. Those who can not escape looking surrogates to their holiday mood. The beaches are colored in green and off-stage feeds the view. childish and burned plots views. Pursuits to loss of sight. That place is loaded with ghosts.

7mn14   color   Sil   2016   USA
by Josh Weissbach
The voice of a figureless character is heard. The figure of a voiceless character is seen. A sequence of estranged voicemails is framed by unidentified events. Fear resides in the gesture of a telling.

sadescription ILLEGAL contemplation
3mn18   color   stereo   2017   Spain
by Rrose Present
Contemplation could be an act of sensitive rebellion. An eye that unlearns laws from the gaze of "colonizer". Yellow has become an illegal color in Catalonia because it is a symbol for the freedom of Catalan political prisoners. The Spanish state can not prohibit that the flowers of the mimosas can return to bloom. Like painting a time, with a playful montage of yellow sea caressed by the wind. Homage to "“Imagine an eye unruled by man-made laws..." by Stan Brakhage and the political prissoners: Oriol Junqueras, Joaquim Forn, Jordi Sànchez & Jordi Cuixart.

sadescription Kinski wanted Herzog to direct but he turned it down
6mn   color   stereo   2017   Canada
by Guillaume Vallée
Echo of Klaus Kinski's broken dream, in the face of Werner Herzog's multiple rejections to direct his script on the mad violonist Paganini. A psychedelic trance capturing the visions of a madman; traces of a film that could have existed.

sadescription IMPRESSURE
4mn35   color   stereo   2017   United Kingdom
by Guli Silberstein
Video code captured during family trips in British landscape, explodes and diffuses on screen, creating smears of vibrant colours and merging moving forms. The work wonders about the mysterious connection between nature and humans, and the use of technology in perception of the natural world.

sadescription To the Nightingales
10mn54   color   stereo   2017   Canada
by Kandis Friesen
To The Nightingales is a filmic collage, an audio-visual poetics emerging from a rhythmic anterior space. Sifting through found footage from early colour handheld films, the video transports the viewer into another realm, absorbed in darkness and washed in light. The layered sound and textured image become a kind of casual rumination on the materials of the artist, of birth and death, of tending, constructing, and holding – an abstract list of those things one cannot contain.
