sadescription Ramona
3mn53   color   sil   2016   USA
by Susan DeLeo
"Ramona" is an homage to the filmmaker's late mother, a journey through the landscape of 8mm home movies obsessively watched as a child and now re-imagined. It is a calling on the light of memory and love.

sadescription Ecstasy
12mn42   color & b/w   stereo   2015   China
by Di Hu
This video is an analytical montage of shots extracted from more than 60 films from the Chinese Cultural Revolution period. It exclusively studies the moments of the interpellation of the Ideology (Louis Althusser) which are represented physically by music, words, gazes, gestures and situations found in these films. I keep every shot at its original length because the shot is the minimal unit of the cinema. When we work on such a critical subject, keeping the integrity of the shot is the least we can do, in a moral way. Strictly speaking, Ecstasy does not lend itself to a specific synopsis, but this does not mean that there is nothing to look at in it. The multiple symbols and meanings extracted from a wide range of shots make up the narratives found in this video: The resemblance of the music in different films, the dramatic gazes with catchlights (like they are absorbed by an overwhelming feeling of great excitement, where the title Ecstasy comes from), the repetition of the words (like ‘Mao Zhuxi’, Chairman Mao), the robotic gestures (raising one’s head, turning around), the faces with tears, the symbolic objects which reincarnate the transmission of ecstasy (like needle, spanner and apple) and the exaggerated film techniques (close-up, zoom in). This video is one of a series of videos and they are not only reexaminations of the cinema of that period but also reflections of history as told through cinema.

sadescription Spermwhore
12mn   color & b/w   stereo   2016   Sweden
by Anna Linder
A queer experimental film about unwanted childlessness in a world where normative heterosexual relationships dictate who can become parents and in what way. When it comes to reproduction our merciless bodies reduce us to merely a set sex or given gender.

sadescription Scène coupée
3mn25   color   dolby stereo   2016   France
by Hadrien Don Fayel
The film tackles the cut in several ways: by the way that archive footage is assembled, by the censorship used in the cropping of the X films, from which scenes have been removed, and by the staging that simulates cutting a human body.

sadescription Zeitlos
3mn35   b/w   stereo   2016   Germany
by Irena Paskali
"Timeless"... We live in a restless world, which is changing faster than ever. What was true yesterday is already meaningless today. Irena Paskali is seeking in her work "Timeless" for the never changing condition of mankind, the essence of human being. On the one hand, it is the human quest for meaning and wisdom, emblematised by the apple. The little girl, standing on the edge of a small lake, still in the need to find her way into life. Secondly, it is the spirituality of man, who strives for transcendence - depicted by the scenes around the historic center of Ohrid, Jerusalem, the Dome of the Rock, Golgatha - it is also about loneliness and being abandoned, impressive staged through the woman, whose face is not visible - and her slow steps upwards the stone stairs.
