As the wave of demolition and construction continues its unrelenting sweep across Sydney, its population, wise to the shenanigans of politicians and developers, knows too well that this physical transformation is the measure of a society increasingly polarised racially, religiously and economically. To stake a claim in the midst of change is to seize fragments of and piece together moving imagery that responds to the visual clutter disseminated by a city in transmutation.

sadescription Milking It
3mn24   color   stereo   2015   Canada
by Jennifer Campbell
A baby cries in the middle of a lush forest as milk pours over her naked body. The camera then follows the tube which is transporting the milk to the baby. The tube weaves through the rich forest floor to reveal the source of the nourishment. My aim is to create a contemporary allegory that brings together my personal experiences as a mother and a an esoteric journey that speaks to both shared ideas and mythologies around birthing and motherhood. I'm interested in the dualistic aspect of motherhood- the lushness of caring for a child while simultaneously enduring the physical and emotional struggles of what it means to be responsible for a life.

sadescription Mónica's Portrait
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.

Series: Video without-camera, reinterpreting “camera-world” The body as a metaphor of love and war, Eros and Thanatos.The title alludes to two cultural imaginary; Courbet's famous painting "L'Origine du monde" and the movie of Alain Resnais' Hiroshima mon amor ". At the beginning of the movie of Resnais two bodies are shown in attitude of love. Here in "Origin of the World" I show a sex without love, Hiroshima without love. Only the instint of sex and death. Where the body becomes the site of the battle between Eros and Thanatos, between pain and pleasure between the informational explosion and an orgasm. The images and sounds are extracted from the free virtual network, they are re-signified from the assembly.

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.

sadescription The Uninvited
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.

by Gabriela Golder
Cerro Mariposa - Valparaiso -The remaining houses were these ones, not up there, but here. They looked nice, yes, but after the fire started all the rabbits that lived here perished. The fire was very high. It was as if the world was going to end.- The Chilean police claim that it was because of two birds. At 4pm on Saturday April 12, two birds fell on a power line crossing El Peral, on the outskirts of Valpariason. The wind was very strong and shook the cables. The birds were electrocuted. Sparks fell and ignited the pastures. The fire had begun. The south wind pushed the fire and the earth was burned.

by Philippe Cote
Lanzarote, a volcanic island in the Canaries, was shaped during the 18th century by a series of eruptions. The island's mineral, semi-desertic landscapes preserve a memory of this history. In 2015, I traversed this area in search of a cataclysm. In this ravaged land, I saw the tentative beginnings of a return to life.

4mn12   color   stereo   2015   Canada
by Lamathilde
When a state phantomizes a population, creating another reality. When history disfigures the face of truth. When my story meets another story. When women disappear without trace. While white and privileged, I witness a repetition of stories. When violence against women's bodies equals violence from the use of words. The bodies of those we do not want to see or hear. From my studio window, I look out and my life crosses theirs.
