NO JOKE


Dir: Maxim Kelly
United Kingdom - 2013

BUTTER LAMP

France - 2013
A young photographer and his assistant suggest to Tibetan nomads to take their picture. Against diverse and more or less exotic backgrounds, families appear to the photographer. Through these shots, the photographer will weave unique links with each of the various villagers.

I AM TOM MOODY

CIRRUS


Dir: Cyriak
United Kingdom - 2013
The music video for Bonobo's song, "Cirrus," is a beautifully surreal video collage created by British animator Cyriak. It is certainly weird, using old footage of ordinary life to create complex machines and giant robots.

LIFE IS A BITCH

Love. Grief. Shock. Denial. Sleeplessness. Bubble bath. Mucus. Masturbation. Pop tart. Pigeons. Toothpaste. Hospital. F__k. Bye. Hair. Sports. Chicken. Bootie. Kids. Rejection. Squirrels. Cries. Awkward—95 scenes, five minutes: life's a bitch.

MISTERIO


Dir: Chema García Ibarra
Spain - 2013
They say that if you put your ear to the back of his neck, you can hear the Virgin speak. Mother, father and son. The trio is heading for a crisis in which understanding is only one way of not listening to each other.

METUBE: AUGUST SINGS CARMEN "HABANERA"


Dir: Daniel Moshel
Austria - 2013
“MeTube”, an homage to thousands of ambitious YouTube users and video bloggers, gifted and less gifted self-promoters on the Internet, has attracted international attention. No less than George Bizet’s Habanera from „Carmen” has been reinterpreted for MeTube and enhanced with electronic sounds. Behind the cross-over of musical styles are director Daniel Moshel as well as opera and oratorio tenor August Schram.

Participated in Sundance 2014

JUST BEFORE LOSING EVERYTHING


Dir: Xavier Legrand
France - 2013
A young boy pretends to go to school and hides under a small bridge. A teenager in tears waits at a bus stop. A woman picks them up and drives them to the parking lot of a supermarket.
