    We discovered that almost every chemical element in our body was formed inside the stars.Our galaxy formation is the result of a supernova shock wave. Our existence is a natural consequence of the existence of the stars, so we can suppose the idea that in our distant galaxies our distant relatives lives. Camera-less animation each frame was made or reproduced with a flatbed scanner.
  3. Sophie Taeuber-Arp's Vanishing Lines / Sophie Taeuber-Arps Fluchtlinien 00:10:10
  4. Germany 2015
    Directed by: Myriam Thyes
    Screenplay: Myriam Thyes
    Animation: Myriam Thyes
    Music: Silvia Pachler

    No few of the works that Sophie Taeuber-Arp completed 1940-1942 manifest a symbolism of war, persecution and flight. The compositions of lively, curved lines have, in part, something lost, floating, broken, irrational about them, which, in all Taeuber-Arp's earlier works, would have been wholly uncharacteristic. The animation, which combines eight of her works from the 'Lignes' series with photographs from WW2, shows the connection and the discrepancy between Taeuber-Arp's artistic activity and the world of war and persecution. The video thereby highlights a dilemma facing artists to this day, of making art in a time of injustice and violence.

  5. Feedback 00:03:00
  6. United Kingdom 2015
    Directed by: Heidi Stokes

    A series of short, sharp reactions to how the digital age is affecting the way we judge each other. This film reflects on a world, that perhaps, increasingly represents who we are through virtual statistics. In an age that has undergone ground-breaking digital changes, it seems almost inevitable that our identities are also having to adapt and change to this new form of representation. ‘FEEDBACK’ plays with this idea, inventing unusual ways to evaluate our identities.

  11. Territory 00:11:00
  12. China 2016
    Directed by: zhang wenrong

    The Extreme Nightmare – My idiotic nonsense The ever-changing delusion of the city landscape; the surrealistic mundane surroundings has puzzled us. The Internet has successfully changed us. Daily life keeps us under great tension, and leaves us very little time to think and to experience. Therefore, people are easily lost in the ultimate anxiety and fickleness; lively, but superficial. Jan Avankmajer said, “ I believe every artist has two kinds of motivation, one comes from childhood memory, the other is dream. Because these are the most significant life experience.” I am not sure whether those are the most significant life experience. But what he said is appropriate to me. Dream is surely the most accurate metaphor for an artwork. It is the reflection of your life, if you are sensitive and pure enough. You can never control your dream. Even an idiot can dream of an exquisitely splendid world. There is always enough space in a dream, only few minutes may present a huge world. You can travel in time within your dream. It has already been edit for you, that you won’t doubt its authenticity. I admire artist who dare to create the power through an event in an artwork, but the woman rests helplessly in the corner of the work often attracts me. I am touched by her nervous eyes and awkward body. Isn’t the ever-changing city landscape a piece of dreamland? I can rather sense the deep impact beneath its magnificent surface. Animation might be my idiotic nonsense, then just don’t mind about the nonsense talk above. Because we all haven’t wake up yet.
  13. Katagami 00:03:15
  14. Japan 2016
    Directed by: Michael Lyons
    Animation: Michael Lyons
    Technique: Stop motion
    Production/School: Michael Lyons

    Stop-motion animation made by photographing and rephotographing antique kimono resist-dyeing stencils in positive and negative. Spatial shifts and variations in the repeating pattern elements generate apparent motion. Photographed on Super 8 and hand-developed in Matchanal (Uji powdered green tea, Vitamin C, Washing Soda).

  16. Germany 2016
    Directed by: Jörg Weidner

  19. Mysteries of Childhood / Misteria dzieciństwa 00:19:00
  20. Poland 2016
    Directed by: Joanna Polak / Daria Kopiec

    The Film Collection of the Mysteries of Childhood originated in the art studios of the Borderland. These 12 films are products of joint work of three generations - grandparents, parents and grandchildren: from the long hours of storytelling and script writing, through the preparations of the scenography and puppets, until the process of animation and development of the story line and narration. The heroes speak with their own voices, and the voices bring back the warmly remembered days of yore. We would like to invite you to the world of the builders of the "Invisible Bridge" whose important part are tales spun from childhood memories.
  21. Purple 00:03:13
  22. USA 2016
    Directed by: Snow Yunxue Fu

    "A subject in this everyday world is surrounded by images and a built environment that are, at times, hard to tell apart. Three-dimensional objects are no longer a prior reality to be represented, but rather seem to be blowups of a two-dimensional world. Two and three dimensions interchange freely with each other in a derealizing process so hard to grasp that we turn to catch words like postmodernism in desperation..." from Video Installation Art: The Body, the Image, and the Space-in-Between, by Margaret Morse

  23. ¡PíFIES! 00:04:00
  24. Argentina 2016
    Directed by: Ignacio Tamarit

    2016, super 8, sound, 4 min ¡PíFIES! (from the Spanish slang, "mistake") is an apology to the technical problems of the amateur filmmaker. A rhythmic collage where the focus is placed on the mistakes, or what would have been discarded by the cineiste, instead of being left.

  31. Impenetrable as Night 00:08:04
  32. USA 2016
    Directed by: Benjamin Rosenthal

    Impenetrable as Night takes inspiration from the landscape of northern Iceland asvirtual site for a demented tactical and techno-spiritual training camp. Covert mountain-like structures in the fjord reveal themselves to be hybrids of bunker and landscape, and metaphors for "the closet." Animated figures perform actions that blur the line between worship, ritual violence and queer eroticism. The iconic Icelandic “hot tubs” become potential sites for some sort of sinister training activity, violent or erotic ritual. The virtuality of the space is revealed consciously via the inclusion (and revelation) of the 3D wireframe, the visible glitch, the use of real-time rendering of individual frames screen-recorded from Maya, and puncturing and layering of spaces that don’t conform to conventions of believable 3D space.
