Juan Torres: “I am someone that can`t stop moving.”

user
If I ask your friends to describe you, what would they say? They would say that I am someone that can`t stop moving. Combined with my cinema profession in Madrid I play also on a latin music band in Paris. The result: last week in Guadalajara, now in Sofia (laughing), and next week going to Paris for a concert there. So my friends also usually say that they can never see me. What qualities do you feel a successful artist should have? I think, and I hope there is not a...

ZAPATOS-CHAUSSURES-SHOES

Director: JAVIER ERCILLA & VICTORIA PLAZA.
Little more than seven minutes unfold step by step with a spirit of fantasy, reflection, sensations and empathy... Seven minutes that walk together with the spectators, with their capacity to read in images the feeling of the feet with their experiences, and that wander in the mind of who wears each of the shoes. Walking amongst photographs in black and white, in color and in neon. Moving forward on the path of thinking through images and sound To feel, somehow, that the steps are never lost... Poco más de siete minutos que se dibujan paso a paso con ánimo de fantasía, reflexión, sensación y empatía… Siete minutos que caminan con el espectador, con su capacidad de leer en imágenes el sentir de los pies, con sus vivencias y que deambulan en la mente de quien lleva cada uno de los zapatos. Caminar entre fotografías en blanco y negro, en color y en neón. Avanzar por el camino de la reflexión visual y sonora. Sentir, de alguna manera, que los pasos no son nunca perdidos… Un peu plus de sept minutes qui se dessinent pas à pas, avec un esprit de fantaisie, de réflexion, de sensation et d'empathie... Sept minutes qui marchent avec le spectateur, avec sa capacité de lire en images les sensations des pieds avec ses expériences, et qui déambulent dans l'esprit de celui qui porte chaque soulier. Marcher entre des photographies en noir et blanc, en couleur et en néon. Avancer sur le chemin de la réflexion visuelle et sonore. Sentir, d'une certaine façon, que les pas ne sont jamais perdus...

The 3rd International Video Art and Short Film Festival «VAU-Fest» invites filmmakers and video artists to take part in the video contest! “VAU-Fest 2012” is dedicated to the concept of “reflection” which nowadays has almost lost its original meaning and is mostly perceived as a common phenomenon.

Cold Water

Director: Pedro Neves.
Disillusionment helps the feet enter the cold water. It’s like a whisper indifferent to the distorted music that echoes round the beach. Disillusionment makes these people beg to heaven what they cannot achieve on earth. How many are the dreams they dare not dream?
