An eclectic walk from Brazil to California, and passing through Europe and Asia, crosses a whole world of emotions.
An Irish short film of love, an enticing little jewel from London, a Dutch narcissistic alien, an experimental and wildy sexy Brazilian babe, a baroque opera of South Africa, the hallucinogenic dance from Australia, a funny sketch from Taiwan, a shamanic folly from San Francisco, and a watery beat from Tokyo.
Selection by Charlotte Leouzon.
In the City Spirits series, inspired by Otaku, Tsui Kuang Yu practices different awkward sports in the city, like scoring strikes at pigeons.
A smashing film on hysteria as men viewed it in the 19th century.
Augustine, a patient interned in 1870 in a Parisian hospital, is played by the incredible dancer Narella Benjamin, which surreal contortions full of despair are filmed with the implacable grace of Australian Cordelia Beresford.
Brazilians are hot and like cute bottoms. Yanko del Pino is a big fan too and shows it well through his film where the narrator reads, in a state of pure excitement, the sex ads of a news paper. Slowly, women fantasies written down in black and red seriously starts to distract or reader. A jewel of eroticism.
A rare motion design picture fill with an amazing languishing sensuality.
It starts with a slow movement of vertical lines and colored bubbles that travels in the crescendo rhythm of an orgasm in a womans body to finally burst out of a mouth and explodes in a stormy seventh heaven sky.
A great flirt pop moment!
When subtitles write out loud characters secret thoughts, it's hilarious.

The shaman-psychedelic San Francisco duet Isaiah Saxon and Sean Hellfritsh, takes us in the heart of a popular landscape of honey pine pastilles, in which ecstatic human beings dressed in lycra skinned costumes the Maurice Bejart style, splash out in a gummy blob, until they melt in a sort of praline flavoured ice-cream substance.

From the filmmaker to his mother, from this mature woman to her body and from the Irish filmmaker to the pure beauty of the flesh filmed like a study of time.
Halfway between a documentary and a great classic painting. Undressing My Mother stripes us naked.
A poetic reflection on innocence, Tralala is a mix of a dance film, a performance, a poem and an animated film. This pure jewel draws the tender and metaphoric portrait of three women/child in total immersion evolving in an enchanted chalk drawn aquarium.
A fairy tale.
The Cape Town group has made this spelling animation opera using Ree Trewweek surrealistic illustrations, Jannes Hendrikz facetious animations and the symphony by the composer Marcus Wormstorm. Tale of How becomes a huge maritime drama fresco in which Jérôme Bosh, Dali and Tim Burton could provoke themselves in duel.
In a classic black Pulp Fiction suit, Hans Hoogerbrugg inflicts himself through a Flash animation, a series of ironic tortures on us the inhuman. Nails was an online auto portraits series, that the Dutch artist decide to edit in video under the pressure of his fans.
With Drop (do it again), the artist played a very graphic game with water taps and trickles, in a breath taking rhythm.
