Dresden hair by Neno Belchev (Bulgarie, 2010) 8’22
Everything until now is rambling.
I feel myself as a speechless
piece of styrofoam, crashed against
the rocky coast by the waves.
Comfortably numb by Jonas Nilsson (Suède, 2011) 2’45
Blurred vision can be described as a change in vision where the usual sharpness of the eyesight goes missing. As a result, the person getting the blurred vision fails to see the minute details of the objects around him.
The eyes are our connection to the outer world and much of our mental perception of the sounds and sensations comes from what we behold with our power of vision.
Some people believe that the outer world influence directly our inner world. The outer world changes people, it changes behaviors, attitudes, thoughts, emotions, feelings, reactions and everything in you.
The Persistence of Forgetting by Jeremy Newman (USA, 2010) 12’
This video explores the culture of divorce via nonlinear thematic patterns. Digital video footage and archival film clips are interwoven to embody an amnesiac experience, forgetting through remembering.

The area is known for its folk music and the highest unemployment in the country. The lyrics of the song reflect the socio-economic situation of the area, but can also be seen as a commentary about the situation of Polish countryside and the wider situation worldwide.

I’m not the enemy by Bjorn Melhus (Allemagne/Norvège, 2011) 13’30

Our Father by Janet Cook-Rutnik (Iles Vierges Américaines, 2009) 2’30
The images used in "Our Father" were shot in the backyard of an 89 year old man who lives in a “shanty” in the Virgin Islands. The yard, a tropical jungle of palms and assembled piles of discarded, collected and trashed items belong to the house in which he has lived for the last 84 years. In the midst of this chaotic but peaceful landscape are these dolls with their childlike innocence, burnished and abandoned to the elements, sometimes carried off by the dogs, bound to displays along with other discarded items, lying face down on the ground or placed in a broken down car or rusted out frying pan. This walk through time seems a parallel to the current state of affairs in the Caribbean where crime and violence have reached staggering proportions, claiming many young lives and producing a frightening loss of innocence and harmony in us all.
Rue des Abeilles by Alfred Marseille & Jan Baeke (Pays-Bas, 2012) 8’02
Based on two poems by Jan Baeke, this movie takes you on a journey in the troubled mind of the narrator, guided by the realistic virtuality of Google streetview (Rue des Abeilles in Marseille and an unspecified location in the Provence).
