22:30 | Data Mine (2016 / Canada / 5min) by Timothy Barron Tracey
DataMine is an astonishingly detailed stop-motion animation about security, surveillance, privacy, and our obsession with digital culture, set in a world of industrial decay whose plugged-in masses fail to notice the sinister agent who watches and controls them.
18:30 | Hermitage (2016 / Sweden / 4min) by Marcus Fjellström
A hermit spacetraveller is navigating a floating bubble across several planets to find and rescue the soul of an abandoned child.
22:30 | On the Origin of Fear (2016 / Indonesia / 12min) by Bayu Prihantoro Filemon
Overdubbing the roles of both torturer and victim in one of Indonesia’s most contentious movies, a performer in a sound booth becomes the one-man embodiment of a whole era’s worst cruelties and sufferings.
22:30 | ABENDGLÜHEN (2016 / Music Video / Germany / 3min) by Sven Helbig
ABENDGLÜHEN is the first song of Sven’s upcoming album I EAT THE SUN AND DRINK THE RAIN. Visual artist and 3 time-web-video-prize winner Sebastian Linda collaborated with Sven for a second time to create this beautiful clip. The album was released on September 9th on the new Berlin based label NEUE MEISTER and features Vocalconsort Berlin, conducted by Kristjan Järvi.
18:30 | The Mesh and the Circle (2014 / Portugal / 35min) by Mariana Caló and Francisco Queimadela
This complex, fragmentary film examines empirical thinking and the tactile. Footage of labour that threatens to become obsolete is symbolic to the transformation of matter. How do you actually depict knowledge or an abstract idea? The Mesh and the Circle wanders the labyrinth of brilliant visualisations and analogies.
21:00 | Second Skin (2016 / USA/UK / 20min) by Charlie Manton
The story of a girl in a cardboard box.
