A collection of new experimental documentaries from artists working around the globe.
James Mattise’s As Best I Can Remember (2013) is a short portrait reflection on the life of Samuel Mattise. Using found audio recordings, the film reflects on 1900s American culture, World War II, and a family dairy business in Jermyn, Pennsylvania.
Cast (2012) by UK artist, Simon Welch meditates on a group of anglers night-fishing on a French beach. Illuminated only by their small headlamps, this relatively ordinary activity takes on an otherworldly aspect, becoming an allegory for contemporary life.
In UK artist Joe Duffy’s LANDFILL (2012), space is mapped and land is filled, through the animation of gps data co-ordinates and interconnected narrative excerpts with trashpickers and members of squatter communities in the slums of Jakarta.
