Antonello Faretta IT Just Say No To Family Values 4 min 37s, DV, 2005
Poem: Just Say No To Family Values John Giorno

An elderly local woman of a village in Southern Italy endures defenceless and almost guilty, the new values dictated by the poet himself.
Hilflos und beinah schuldbewusst, erträgt eine alte Frau in einem süditalienischen Dorf, den Monolog des Dichters über die "neuen Werte"

Devis Venturelli I
Io Sono Il Vento 14 min, DV, 2006 play

Io sono il vento by Devis Venturelli was among he highlights of this years Directors Lounge. A poetic short that is formed by four female life portraits: the adolescence, the youth, the mature age and the old age. The wind crosses each histories modifying the obvious standstill, among the wait of an ineluctable destiny and the abandonment to unexpected openings.

Erik Urlings NL Exit Exit 16 min 5s, DV, 2006

Reality and dream are merging during a seamingly endless car ride on the Amsterdam traffic circle (A10). An intense experience of traffic and land- and cityscape. The always moving camera and the unearthly soundtrack turn cars, lights and scapes into melancholy.

• Irina Botea RO/US Aktion 1 min, DV, 2003

Reduced food packages breathing and squeaking like pets. Healthy food is one of Swiss pride, and a childhood obsession of the artist.


• Kazuhiko Kobayashi JP Gate Vision
5min 24s, DV, 2005


Imagery for Gate Vision was photographed from the window of the Shinkansen with a digital camcorder.The photographed image was circularly processed using computer manipulation. Simple photography and processing were used to creat this work, however, the final image is compelling and fresh.
