DIRECTOR> José Ramón da Cruz FILM> BEAUTYTUDES (Biutitudes) SYNOPSYS> A beautytud (biutitud) is an ironic portrait: an image (in movement) of images (without movement) that become narratively in a small plastic satire. A beautytud (biutitud) is a piece of "montage montage" where the expression is articulated by the rhythm of the visual and sound montage of some computed images as "burst stories", the mix of divergent human elements in situations absurd or not to the text and music. The texts are bio-historical emulsions and reflections of the author and are encrypted: Let nothing be very clear! Each piece or beautytud (biutitud) reifies and uses any element of our social memory in the form of foremen or situations that interact to create an argument (usually ironic) BEAUTYTUDES (biutitudes) is the album of these pieces. DIRECTOR> Mark Niehus FILM> Rattle SYNOPSYS> The poem "Rattle" which my poetry film is based was written with my 'Street Poetry' process whereby I interact with the public who can request a spontaneous poem on a subject of their choice, in this case "Peace" was the subject given. I then compose a poem directly onto a typewriter and read the finished poem to the participant. I then used result to inspire "Rattle" a poetry film that is an intimate window into a moment of a local person's life that often passes us by unexplored. DIRECTOR> Emma Penaz Eisner FILM> Beth's three o'clock with Dr. Harlow SYNOPSYS> Beth discloses a recent dream to her analyst. A vivid study of casual brutality and failed empathy, this surrealistic film intermixes stop motion animation with live action sequences.
