Pure thoughtful cinema, sprinkled with symbols as a synthesis of knowledge. The first movie of this rubric is La cinquième saison (2012), directed by Peter Brosens and Jessica Woodworth.
(Spoiler alert) A small rural community is upset by absurd natural phenomena, the cycle of seasons breaks and generates a sort of perpetual winter, not only climatic.
It causes a social crisis, which culminates in the loss of apparent innocence and the explosion of a premeditated violence, part of human nature and therefore ineluctable, like the progressive cromatic desaturation of this filmic representation.
This is truly a Flemish painting in motion, which communicates with an atavistic grammar, made up of almost imperceptible dialogues and a narrative dimension that moves gradually to a grotesque and unacceptable level of reality. Bosch and Bruegel would appreciate this.4 hearts
Futuristic nostalgia is the feeling expressed by these concept cars, exhibited at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta till September 07, 2014.
Dream cars (as they were called in the 50s) allowed designers to demonstrate and showcase forward-thinking automotive design ideas and were the testing ground for innovations that might find expression in automobiles produced decades later.
The exhibition examines the dream car through five themes: individual makers, the impact of styling, visionary designers, the design process, and the influence of automobile fairs.

In this video by 33 ⅓ Collective you’re swallowed up in a whirlwind of styles, forms of expression and (un)contaminated places.
The uniqueness of the performance and its visual-melodic here and now is dismembered in an ostensible plurality, deconstructed in a cosmic act of expansion and contraction, like a Cubism in a no longer latent movement.
Skeylja is an international artist-in-residence programme focussed around meetings between Dutch, Frisian, Icelandic and English musicians and video-makers. Eleven artists went to Iceland for a week and then brought the recorded material to Terschelling. A dialogue takes place through improvisation sessions in which collective audio and visual landscapes arise.2 hearts
