DreamcaughtNATASZA CETNERUnited Kingdom0h 3m 0sDreamcaught is a 3 min short animation by Polish animation student Natasza Cetner. It focuses on relations between seemingly accidental images we come across in our dreams or nightmares. The visions we see in our dreams can tell us some stories with sensible plots and characters. We can replay our memories changed in a way according to our emotions or experiences. But what is the most disturbing and therefore fascinating is the chain of surprising, grotesque dark scenes that are stuck in our subconscious. For some reason they are shown together as one. But why? Is that because they are all some kind of interpretations of what we feel right now? What is driving us crazy or is it the projection of our most hidden fears? The film is about those blurred connections between the pictures projected in our sleeping minds. The shots seem to be random, they change rapidly, and the plot is twisted so there is different concept of the meaning for everyone of us. The film is kept in dark surrealistic atmosphere mostly inspired by 20th Century photography such as Andre Kertesz and Henri Cartier-Bresson with an influence of works by Guillaume Apollinaire.-

SistersDavid ChontosUnited States0h 3m 58sPart exercise of passion, and part love letter, ‘Sisters’ is a fragment of some lost, tragic opera. Trapped in the ruins of their former glory, a pair of performers bound together and abandoned by time rise up to sing once more. Conjured up by the song to which it’s set, the film represents a sincere vision of inspiration derived from the music of Karin Dreijer Andersson (Fever Ray). It is the confluence of a variety of abstract concepts, from the fragility of modern technology, to the cruelty of the passage of time. The movement of the characters references legendary contemporary choreographer, Martha Graham; transposing an exercise in human restraint and lamentation onto mechanical beings.D'un part une expression de passion, de l'autre une lettre d'amour, ‘Sisters’ vient d'un opéra dramatique. Le film représente une intérprétation de la musique de Karin Dreijer Andersson (Fever Ray). Des références de Martha Graham, le fameux chorégraphe, est un impression de la restriction humaine et la remorse senti envers les êtres mécaniques.
