Choros – Langan Films


“A chorus of women are borne from the movements of a single dancer in this dreamlike pas de trente-deux.

In the tradition of Marey and McLaren, Michael Langan and Terah Maher combine music, dance, and image multiplication to create a film that enhances our perception of motion. “Choros” delivers a visually mesmerizing narrative in three movements, following a dancer’s (Maher) experience of discovery, euphoria, and rebirth through this surreal phenomenon. Featuring music from Steve Reich’s “Music for 18 Musicians.””

Keith Loutit – the Lion City

“Small Worlds is Loutit’s most ambitious project to date, documenting the world’s great cities, landscapes and monuments of the ancient world in miniature. In a time of population explosion, impacts to our environment, and concern over limited resources our world feels smaller than ever. But through Loutit’s lens the world seems simple and uncomplicated, the differences between people are reduced, and obstacles seem easily overcome. By presenting a view of the world from ‘the outside in’ Loutit aims to tell an inspirational story of mankind working together as one. We will see cities being built, the world’s great events, and daily life all in Loutit’s trademark style of miniaturization.”

and on the Lion City

“For ‘The Lion City’, the idea behind the extension of the tilt shift technique is for focus and distance to be something the viewer can experience. It also doubles to communicate the constant heat and humidity that hits you whenever you leave the comfort of air conditioning in Singapore.”

It’s just like a Miniatur Wunderland version of Singapore. Love it!

Eran Amir – Black and White

Apparently this “black and white” video was made by painting the room (and the main character himself) in shades of grey. No colour correction was used to alter the footage in any way. Cool!

Andy Ellison – Magnetic Resonance Imaging of Foods

Any Ellison is an MRI technologist at Boston University Medical School who runs a research only Philips 3 Tesla MRI. Unintentional artistry?

PS If the gifs aren’t animated on your screen, you might want to wait a couple of seconds or click on them.

Free Zone.

These days, everyone associates Natalie Portman with Black Swan, but I think this scene of hers from Free Zone is unparalleled.

Yangon Calling

“Punk in Myanmar – that is a provocation itself…

The film “Yangon Calling” introduces the main protagonists of the punk rock scene and shows their life in Myanmars’s underground. During six weeks, the filmmakers Alexander Dluzak and Carsten Piefke filmed secretly and without authorization in Yangon, using small cameras. They accompanied the punks to their homes and met their friends and families. They went along with them to work in the tailor shop and tattoo studio, to rehearsal rooms and secret illegal concerts. They spoke with punks who had sat in jail during the military dictatorship and saw them fight their frustration with heroin.

Yangon Calling is a film about life in an authoritarian state, about personal tragedy and the struggle for freedom in a country where punk is still true rebellion.” — (Stefan Fahler)
