A 6-minute, animated short film written and directed by Tomasz Bagiński. It features Romanian band Fanfare Ciocarlia’s song “Asfalt Tango.” The film was produced and created by Platige Image, a VFX company. In 2006 it received the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Award.
It was during summer 1966 that Barrett had his first LSD trip in the garden of friend, Dave Gale…
So, to sum up 2013 and welcome 2014, on this journey to infinity and nowhere, I picked Maelstorm as my representative of 2013:
listen to the plants in your house:
and this sweet psychedelic video is for a shroomy future to us all:
A night walk in the windy streets of Tel Aviv turns into a ecstatic-meditative journey, following the magical encounter of two plastic bags who wonder the streets together, going on and on in a mystical cyclical bag dance. And for a moment the whole street seems to wake up with vibrant life – joining them in a communal dance of bags, feathers, flowers and even a butterfly.
What I love about this movie, among other things, is it’s sweeping spontaneity: the powerful sense our protagonists radiate (and even I as a viewer have) of witnessing a magical moment – of being in the presence of magic. This magic is very quiet and low-key. It could have easily have gone unnoticed (and indeed is unnoticed by the bypassers and the cars who cross the street), but our two protagonists, ready to explore the mystery of the streets, are rewarded with the subtle poetical magic that makes this scene enchanted.
“Took part in the making/filming/singing of the movie:
yaacov beaton, mihal goldstein, inbar algazi, shira levy, avner amit, keren sheffi.”
An animation short about the hallucinations of a girl with a drug overdose by Koen de Mol, Olivier Ballast and Rick Franssen. The opening scene reminded me a bit of Gaspar Noe’s “Enter the Void” and while the subject matter is more narcotic than psychedelic (you virtually can’t OD on most classic psychedelics like mushrooms or LSD), the hallucinations themselves are pretty spectacular to watch.
I couldn’t believe it, when I searched for FLCL on dpv and could not find a single post about it.
If you haven’t done so already, go and watch all of this show – now!
And many thanks to Ido for showing me FLCL years ago. Good times!
