Experimental Short Film

Fried Chicken

Director: Serdar YILMAZ.
In a family made up of a grandmother, daughter and a 9-year old granddaughter, granddaughter is forced to eat. The moral supporter of this little girl who feels contented about her games and within her own world, is a man behind the curtain only visible to her and no one has any clue whether this man is real or imaginary. While the Fried Chicken is a monstrous and aversive thing for the little girl, it turns in to a four - meter -long avant-garde object that is pulled over by the (same) man behind the curtain under cheers in an isolated corner (street) populated by the homeless.

La Mer de la Tranquilité / The Sea of Tranquility

Director: Antoon Cox.
In the first half of the 20th century, La Louvière was a prosperous mining town in Belgium. Today, more than three decades after the closing of the last mine, this same place is generally known as a grim town famous for its high unemployment rates. Still, to those who are willing to look beyond the statistics, this town reveals its beauty. In particular, this documentary shows a multicultural and convivial dream come true. The two main protagonists (see picture) mama Jeanne from Congo and Pierre (see picture) from France mount a terril (slag heap) and discover the beauty of their habitat. Comming from the Congo Mama mounts the terril in a typical African dress and high heels. The little mountain reminds her of Congo. At the summit treats the local population to blazed bananas and Chicken Moambe. The party at the summit depicts well the diversity of this town with the Africans to be the latest immigrants after the Italians, the Turks. Towards the end they are all surprised by the resurrection of singer Claude François, the French singing legend who passed away in an accident just a few years after La Louvière's last mine was closed down.

clean is good

Director: carlos matiella.
Richard is sick of his life. He embarks on an inner journey, with the aid of very special guides. Looking for the serenity and joy he underwent at some moments of his life, this trip takes him into meditation on the different stages of his life, and the different degrees of self-knowledge experienced during infancy, childhood and his youth. When did the sensations of calm and joy left to let alienation and anguish arise? Ricardo will discover himself as part of the Cosmos, all he needs to be OK is already inside him. Clean is good.

AMOUR'S UPGRADE. The poster

Luminescence

Director: Catalina Santamaria.
Luminescence is a poetically inspired experimental film about light – as mirror, as metaphor, as self-reflection, as shadow, as heat, as the ethereal wave particles of optics and physics – and ultimately, as pure energy - shimmering, glowing and flickering.
