Follow scientists for just 4 minutes to discover an entire new world. From the frantic activity at the surface, to the apparent calm of single molecules, travel across the cytoplasm between pipe-like structures and networks of contractile cables.

Parallel                Huckleberry Lain        USA            32:00
Pretty sounds and pretty pictures. Through a chance meeting filmmaker Huckleberry Lain crossed paths with electronic music artist Languis. Both have a strong passion for experimentation with abstraction  one for sound and the other for image. After witnessing each others craft, they decided to collaborate on this piece. Sound came first and then image. Both artists have deep roots in the independent art world, but also enjoy the high tech playground. Therefore, this piece is properly presented in HD stereoscopic 3-D with 5.1 sound. Description is beyond words, but is reminiscent of Harry Smiths abstractions and the Whitney Brothers experiments married with electronic shoe-gaze sounds spawned from My Bloody Valentine and Aphex Twins.

Take Too Long            Kwesi Davis            USA            17:00
In New Orleans, should you survive the winds, the floods and the heat, youre welcome to the dark, on a carpet of crap; without food,drink, or dignity.
