»Life in a Box« by 48h Creative Team
A young woman in her apartment — alone.
Emptiness. With a daily ritual she seeks to fill the void. Visiting malls — means more than the mere consolation by consumer.
A short improvised film done within two days, from a team interchanging roles of production.
»Rough Around the Edges« by Max Proctor
The film itself is not a polished work but a work of imperfections which determine the films final roughness.
»Dixie« by Max Kutschenreuter
A young man goes through a transformation after meeting a group of drag queens in a public toilet
»The Neighbourhood« by Thomas Kuhn
What does the sound of Berlin look like? »The Neighbourhood« breaks it down into movement, color, kinky contemporary's, distortion, contrasts, and a never ending, dragging beat…
»Eleutherophobia« by Simon Adegbenro
We are born as humans, born in a body we do not choose, into a society with it's on set of rules knowing this ask yourself are you free?
»Exquisite Interval« by Michael Lyons
This single reel Super 8 film is Lyons only evidence of a Doppelgänger-filmmaker, whose current whereabouts are completely unknown. Begun in the Tempelhofer Field, Berlin, in August 2013, shooting could finally be completed in August 2015, when the camera and film mysteriously re-surfaced at the Mauerpark Flohmarkt. Sound created in collaboration with Jon Trán.
