PROGRAM:

You Make Me Feel So Good2007 (4"12)
Director: Juan Pablo Echeverri Muñoz, Colombia.



You make me feel so good, is a video-clip to a "reggaeton" song that the artist completed at Braziers International Artist Workshop in England last year. 
Since the location of this Workshop was around a castle, Echeverri decided to create a fairytale like scenery, dressed like Snow White, Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella, and singing along to this (very fast), and cheesy song.  The video was intended to be some sort of dream or fantasy that he had ever since he started to plan the video before he even got there, so it starts with him dressed like a man, spinning like wonder woman changing into the Disney Princesses.

Juan Pablo Echeverri Muñoz
was born on 22 November 1978 in Colombia. He studied Visual Art between 1997 and 2002 at Pontificia Universidad Javeriana in Bogotá. Now a photographer and film maker, Juan concentrates on self portraits. His work explores themes of identity, image and gender in the public and private realms, and the way in which individual identity develops over time. Juan"s native language is Spanish and he is fluent in English.

CODE 2007 (5' 20")
Director: Isidora Ilic, Serbia.
Video art Code is homage to Alain Resnais' film: Last Year in Marienbad. It questions relation between language and empty spaces. The place witnesses the identity and history but place is only a group of elements existing in certain order. Walkers transform place into space by their presence and movement. A word, like a place, is unidentifiable but in act of speech, surrounded by different elements, it becomes multiply term and language creates the meaning.

SBARA - 2007 (8´ 30")
Director: Larissa Sansour. Danmark/Palestina.

Heavily referencing the 1980 cult classic The Shining by Stanley Kubrick, the video piece SBARA explores the castigation of Arabs in contemporary Western dialogue. By adding an audio montage combining historical and current quotes on the Middle East to footage paraphrasing scenes from the original film, SBARA seeks to expose the cyclical nature of Middle Eastern rhetoric and policies and emphasize the psychological terror inflicted upon those at the receiving end of this repetitively stagnant political discourse.

"Not Yet" 2007
Annie Whiles (England)

'I went to Braziers with my dog Bob, who has just
celebrated his 119th Birthday in human years.
I wanted to make an allegorical film, using an emblematic structure of people, like a Greek motif depicting notions of essential elements.
I worked with six men, considering them guardians of
the day, night and afterlife, symmetrically placed in
a drawing made of hay. I asked them to perform a
ritual that dissembled the drawing, which left Bob to
make his decisions.'

Document of an escape 2007 (3`)
Veronica Flores (Mexico).

The uncomfortable compulsion to get and do something
She walked back and for from braziers park to Oxford.
The question started with an uncomfortable feeling or compulsion to get and do something… the answer…

…Valéne sometimes had the feeling that time had been
stopped, suspended, frozen around, he didn’t know what
expectation…
