“An Object at Rest follows the life of a stone as it travels over the course of millennia, facing nature’s greatest obstacle: human civilization. My final thesis film at CalArts!”

The Temple (Filmed at Burning Man) [by Michael Marantz]

19 Sep

“Now that many in our society have moved beyond traditional religion, how do we move past tragedy? How do we mark the exciting events in our lives and how do we deal with life’s inevitable trials? Some people who face these questions find the answer in the most unlikely of places, Burning Man. “The Temple” explores modern spirituality in a contemplative and personal manner touching on the ideas of self-discovery, letting go, and meaningful human connection that transcends simply a party in the desert.”

We have not touched the deeply intriguing and mesmerizing world of the Residents yet here on dpv, since usually psychedelia is only one component in their surreal and absurdist multimedia art. Nevertheless, I think you will enjoy the Gingerbread Man short film.

Piotr Kamler – Une Mission Ephemere 1993

25 Jul

“Kamler’s animated cinema suggests a singular variety of science fiction. Completely unalike to more conventionally linear and text-based narratives, Kamler’s films instead explore a series of dynamic visual motifs. Typically, the conclusion of these films is less suggestive of resolution, than it is of recurring episode.”
