  • Coup de Grâce. Clara van Gool. Netherlands/Spain (2011). 26′

Coup de Grâce is a film about the collapse of a friendship, about what is broken and what cannot break. After a long separation, two men meet again in a massive building in a remote location. In the course of the evening and along an icy night, they fight a weaponless, exhausting duel.

  • Motion Sickness. John Mcllduff. UK (2012). 10′

A teenage marching band rehearses on a rooftop car park on a Saturday. A flock of crows lie dead in the wind. Three people sit in the back of a car waiting to move. Motion Sickness is a dance-film exploring ideas of need, rejection and escape.

Director: John Mcllduff / Choreographer: Jessica Kennedy / Performers: Eddie Hay, Jessica Kennedy, Liv O’Donoghue / Producer: Zlata Filipovic.

  • Communication Breakdown. Beatriz Palenzuela. Spain (2012). 6′

It gets to a point in which communication breaks down, and trying to jump that wall becomes impossible. Time heals the wounds, but the dust expands. We leave the meaning of these suggestions open to the viewer’s interpretation.

Director: Beatriz Palenzuela / Performers: Rafael de la Lastra and Beatriz Palenzuela / Music: Chema Palenzuela / Execution: Ícaro Maiterena, Rafael de la Lastra and Beatriz Palenzuela.
