The selection committee of Circuito Off announces the finalists of the fourteenth international competition: eclectic, disjointed, rebel, dreamlike videos deconstructing the traditional concept of story, opening up to innovation, mixing all kinds of dogmas and leaving room to imagination without taboos.
From Phillip Barker’s “Malody“, Jonathan Entwistle “Human Beings“, the ironic “Young Dreams” by Kristoffer Borgli and “100 Pasos” by Matteo de Mayda and Silvia Costa, up to “Chrome Canyon Generations” by Ace Norton and “Autoerotic” by Can Evgin, all the videos perfectly summarize the fusion of videoclips, music and stories.
Purified cinema is in the air with “Nothing” by Tracey Snelling and ”Faraways” by Audrey Lam, compared with the shameless experimental codes of “Spettografia di una battaglia” by Fabio Scacchioli, up to Irene Carlevale’s grotesque masterpiece “Ansia&Greve“. Moreover “A Very Large Increase in the Size, Amount, or Importance of Something Over a Very Short Period of Time” by Max Hattler, “Briganti senza leggenda” by Gianluigi Toccafondo, “Metube: August Sings Carmen ‘Habanera‘” by Daniel Moshel. There are also award-winning films such as “The Mass of Man” by Gabriel Gauchet, ”Ina Litovski” by Anaïs Barbeau-Lavalette and Andrè Turpin. The language of all these works brings us closer to the world of movies.
Works contaminated by fiction and documentaries such as “Persiennes” by Céline Masson, between experimentation and graphics, confirm the rut of research, on the borders of different genres.
Videoclips are given great importance, from the violent “Spreca una vita” by Graziano Staino, “Ocean Blue” with a romantic Rae Spoon by Chelsea McMullan, or the famous Phon.o featuring Tunde Olaniran in “Leave a Light On” by Lewis Lloyd.
Many animations will be present as well: “Memento Mori” by Daniela Wayllace, “Topo Glassato al Cioccolato” by Milkyeyes Donato Sansone, “Raw Data” by Jake Fried, “I’m Fine Thanks” by Eamonn O’Neill, “Vor dem Spiegel” by Lydia Günther, “Beluga” by Shin Hashimoto, “De Wake” by Pieter Coudyzer, “Little Falling Words” by Igor Imhoff, “Mail” by Emanuele Kabu and “Untitled Rainbow” by Tommaso Sartori.
