UNDER A BROAD GRAY SKY (5:00; San Francisco) by Thad Povey
Light and time seem frozen during the reading of a poem by Baudelaire. A mundane moment in an ordinary day is briefly transformed
TENIS MATCH (10:00; Prague) by Robert Ellmann; premiere.
Our artistic vision derives from the clash between archaeology (silent film techniques) and anthropology (modern commercial rivalry). We find poetry there.
BODIES (2:37; Seattle WA) by Brian C. Short
PICTURES IN IRELAND (6:00; Belfast) by Dave Johnston.
The words of philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein (who spent time in a cottage on the West coast of the island), underscore images of everyday Ireland.

From the poem of the same title by Sylvia Plath, a serenely disturbing vision has inspired an idea about fire.
SUENOS (5:06; Arvada CO) by Judy Gardner
This video is based on performance & installation work done at the University of Colorado while earning my Masters in Fine Arts & Theatre. I became intrigued with translating live work into the digital realm and this is the result.
THE DREAMER & THE DOER (6:00; Berkeley CA) by Sylvi Alli; premiere.
A polarity study. Moving images mark a distinction between two realms, inspired by an e-mail message from my partner in crime.
DESCRIPTIONS OF THE INDESCRIBABLE (9:35; Pacoima CA); premiere.
by Stuart White and Ingrid Gilbert.
Just because we can make it perfect doesnt mean we have to.
DAY OF THE DEAD (5:28; NYC) by Annette Weintraub
Day of the Dead contrasts the warmth of ritualized recollection of friends with the brutality of sudden meeting with violence on the street.

Theres a politico-economic subtext; one of a series of performance poems.
THE SLANT (2:00; Jericho NY) by Sarah Lofti
Let text conjure emotions as only images as done before; voice & text by Ani Difranco.
SLEEPLESS MOVIE (3:30; San Jose CA) by Mark Haren
Stream-of consciousness poetry, traditional hand-drawn, and experimental animation techniques are combined to evoke the childhood nighttime fears, big questions and semi-random scattered thoughts of a sleepless night.
WATER PLANET (6:00; Oakland CA) by Bill Levinson
WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW (3:00; Sacramento CA) by Sean Christopher.
Rare raw bites from All About Audrey, Sacramentos most twisted live variety talk show, where the often audacious and occasionally obscene always happens.
