Ubuyu (First Bath)

Short film of an infant's first bath based on amateur footage found in an antiques gallery in Japan. The photographer is unknown, but the material is thought to date to the early-to-mid Showa era, a period marked by the disastrous consequences of militarism. Music by Tomoko Sauvage.
Four postcards to Marta
10mn03 b/w stereo 2015 Spain
by Hernán Talavera
I have here a small film; it's made from a few filmed postcards. These are simple, intimate postcards, which I sent to my girlfriend when she returned to her country, Latvia, in the autumn of 2014.
Recuerdo de mi santuario
7mn14 color stereo 2015 France
by Juliette Liautaud
Between a song and a visual piece, between abstraction and figuration, using the failure of the film itself, shot in super 8mm while looking for an hermit in the mountains of Roquebrune and mixed with digital video, the quest turned into an abstract enigmatic journey, a visual ecstatic experience, crossed with an ambient homemade lofi-soundtrack. The title comes from the figurine hung at the car, as the title of a popular forgotten song.
Latte de cowboy
2mn58 color & b/w stereo 2015 France
by Derek Woolfenden
"Latte de cowboy" is a found footage music video experimenting with the idea above, going as far as to test the Koulechov system (editing and acting) in a supposedly impossible/unfeasible shot reverse shot. It’s the film aesthetic of the firearm that links one genre to the other, from westerns to thrillers and back. “The shot went off and…
The bullet will have entered one ear of humanity to come out of the other!”
This music video was made for the band La Villageoise in 2015. The song Latte de Cowboy is taken from their first album Automne.
3mn34 b/w stereo 2015 Argentina
by Laura Focarazzo
"The Uninvited" places the viewer in front of an anonymous, elusive face, a distorted representation of some of the ghosts that inhabit our unconscious. An observer / observed that sits in a state halfway between the real and the imagined, between remembering and forgetting, between life and death. This work invites viewers to immerse themselves in an abstract world, built by the only possible tool to shape the distortion.
3mn04 b/w sil 2015 Brazil
by Victor Galvão
A video composed by a sequence of photographic frames from a contact sheet depicting an industrial landscape where the the space is described as an incongruous and self-destructive superposition of different times.
3mn15 b/w stereo 2015 USA
by Salise Hughes
A meditation on politics and the political beast formed by footage of the first nationally televised debate in the United States. The debate is known for its power of appearances, but news accounts also claim they presented remarkably similar agendas. They both emphasized national security, the threat of communism, the need to strengthen the U.S. military, and the importance of building a brighter future for America.
A Fairy-tale Romance
5mn30 color stereo 2015 South Korea
by Jung-Chul Hur
The artist transforms a thirty seconds of an original event, into a five minutes version. The temporal relationship in the film looks visually compelling and emotional, dramatic and powerful, however this artistic event perhaps only exists in a slowing down of the sequences, not with its actual recording speed.

5mn color stereo 2015 Portugal
by João Cristovão LEITÃO
Mónica is, in theory, anything. Therefore, her portraits are born from the juxtaposition of sounds and of images taken from the audiovisual archive that is YouTube. Copyrights are neglected, the purposes of those who are neglected are usurped and (im)possible truths are tested. Thus, Mónica’s Portrait isn’t intended as an inflexible document – which informs and certifies –, but rather as an audiovisual montage able to suggest the inevitable and multiple identity of things: of sound, of image and of mankind.

Starfish Aorta Colossus
4mn43 color mono 2015 USA
by Lynne Sachs & Sean Hanley
Poetry watches film. Film reads poetry. Paolo Javier’s text is a catalyst for the digital sculpting of an 8mm Kodachrome canvas. Syntactical ruptures and the celebration of nouns illuminate twenty-five years of rediscovered film journeys.
15mn color stereo 2015 Switzerland
by Max Philipp Schmid
Presented against the backdrop of an artificial greenhouse, „Paradise“ interweaves texts, documentary images and sounds into a cluster of questions. How do we imagine paradise? How does what we imagine manifest itself in front gardens and urban landscaping?
