Reverie

Who says that a good film must be 2-hours long? This is an excellent short film (3+ minutes) with really cute children playing the leading roles.

Buenos Aires: Las Calles de Borges

"Poets, like the blind, can see in the dark."
Jorge Luis Borges

"A little homage to the Argentinian poet Jorge Luis Borges, one of the greatest writers of all time. This video was shot in the winter of 2010 in Buenos Aires and Capilla del Señor, Argentina."

This is an artistic video of Buenos Aires and its famous poet Jorge Luis Borges. Buenos Aires is one of the few places in South America that I would like to visit.

 We Are 138

" 'You just need your surroundings and you can evolve'- Mark Ong aka SBTG, takes viewers through his creative process and roots growing up in the perceived restrictions of Singapore. Finding inspiration in the simplest of forms, SBTG creates the "138" shoe collaboration with FICE Boutique in Salt Lake City, Utah and explains how the Misfits inspiration guided the collaboration. On the surface the film purposes to expose the cerebral world of SBTG and an emerging sub-culture in Singapore, but the film becomes deeply personal as SBTG reveals how his experiences have affected his work and current mindset."

 Basement Jaxx vs. Metropole Orkest--Hey U

This one is hard to describe but is a good video. It has exotic animated animals playing the song Hey U from the group Basement Jaxx. That's what I think it is. Check it out.

Rooms

A very clever black and white video that shows a house, but uses audio to project the memories of the people who once lived in that house. This is a creative video.

The Last Survivor Trailer

"The Last Survivor is a character-based, feature-length documentary that explores the idea of genocide in the 21st century. Following the lives of survivors of four different genocides and mass atrocities - The Holocaust, Rwanda, Darfur, and Congo - the film presents the stories of Survivors and their struggle to make sense of the tragedy by working to educate, motivate and promulgate a civic response to mass atrocity crimes. Offering real world examples of Survivors who have become powerful agents of change, The Last Survivor presents a unique opportunity to learn from the lessons and mistakes of our past in order to have lasting social impact on how we act collectively in the face of similar issues today."

Lynx

Lynx is a beautiful video shot with a conventional camera, Canon 5D Mark II. The sharpness of video is unprecedented. It also shows you how our domestic cats are not far removed from their wild cousins.

This is a trailer for a film on an indigenous Amazonian leader who is trying to save his world. Unfortunately, this is a story for our entire planet not just the Amazon basin.

With the Rainforest facing peril, this apocalyptic story presents two colliding visions that shape the climate future of our world."
