‘Chasing Dancing Black Butterflies’ by Karen Axelrad

A beautiful choreography of sketchy people silhouettes which come and go spontaneously along the pictures of a gallery. It’s a black and white photo series. Slow shutter shots assembled to a film and connected with an energetic folky dance music. For me it expresses the pleasure of looking at the interaction between audience and artwork. So Karen creates a new piece of art.

‘Impossible Journey’ by Poetic Medium

An interesting collage of two parallel scenes: a pair of moving legs in an outdoor pool (could be the reality) and the walk up in a dark and endless staircase (could be the imagination or memories). Associative thinking, expressed in images. Every journey is possible through the medium of film!

A day in the Park’ by Judith Reisman

A beautiful sunny day. Judith takes us on a walk through a park. The exploratory and shaky camera gives us the impression from what her eyes are attracted. The intense colors, the dazzling light and the music create a special mood. The swan (filmed in slow motion) is for me like the end of a quest of beauty.

‘Commuting Trains’ by Tom

The daily feeling of commuters. Passing trains with the well known matching sound. Once from the left, then from the right. Who is moving? The distant houses through the windows give us the answer. The filmmaker is waiting at a train station…
