Coriolis
Two women separated by continents share the same blood and come from a country where the local climate creates strong winds. The film was shot at several locations in the form of a video installation, whose poetics emerge from the director's staged dreamlike situations. One of the sisters is on a beach and the other in Helsinki in the winter. The exchange of the two women's thoughts winds through the film like an invisible thread, creating an unconscious correspondence about their experiences, set to the sound of the wind.

Exit Point
An intimate look at the world of a man who lives his passion through the sense of freedom that he experiences when jumping off mountaintops or the highest buildings in the world – and when running away from prying eyes or seeking an escape route between the buildings. However, succumbing to the taste of adrenaline comes with many risks, some of them fatal.Moments of inexorable falling. "Fucking" joy that the parachute opened. Flying past waterfalls, approaching a lake, hitting the hard asphalt during nighttime jumps. Images filled with vertigo.

An Inaccurate Distance
Translator Riccardo Bertani almost never leaves his house, but still travels in his imagination through his linguistic book transformations. For him, language is a true gateway to other worlds. And although the translator speaks the entire time about other worlds and the frontiers of knowledge, we observe his home in detail from an intimate distance.DETAIL:“I've always been interested in Russian writers but my first translation have been from Ukrainian. Within 6-7 weeks I was already writing Ukrainian. And then the Russians followed and then many others until the Yakutsk.”

Mountain in Shadow
Hypnotic black-and-white static views of a mountain provide the intense experience of touching by sight. In their consuming concentration, the images are a contemplative experiment in contrasts (the motionlessness of the mountain massif versus the movements of the ant-sized skiers; light versus shadow; black versus white) and a visual touching of the surface texture.The sound of breathing and crunching of snow, minimalist music, the cold metal sound of a ski lift. Dusk falls on the landscape, slicing into the light-sculptured countryside, absorbing the sensations offered to the eyes. The day closes its eyes and through the night slithers a snake of light.

Clap Your Hands
Technological innovations of the moving picture in the service of science – in this case, the atom bomb – as we watch preparations for an explosion from various points of view. The film is interesting in its origins: It was put together using solely publicly available footage from the online Prelinger Archives. The clock’s hand goes in a circle as it marks the time. Preparations complete. Cameras ready, the plane takes off, drums roll. A match is struck and burns, the bomb falls. The pressure wave, then close-up footage of flowing microorganisms.

Aus dem Auge
By a spray-painted window at the end of a seemingly endless, devastated hallway, begins a captivating, contemplative, minimalist metaphor for the lost time of glory of the Prora seaside resort – the longest and most bizarre compound of recreational buildings in the world. “Kraft durch Freude” – an affordable holiday for 20,000 German workers, filled with Nazi propaganda. Enclosed by the hallway, you walk backwards through time, accompanied by your voice, a recapitulating narration, words dusting off a personal history. The endless emptiness of the space is intertwined with the silence in the spaces between words. Flaking plaster, broken windows. Is that the sound of waves outside?…
