Dear future disaster survivor,

This is the story of how your city is completely devastated and your world perishes without you.

On 26 April, 2011, the city of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, was devastated by a tornado. The result: 4,700 homes damaged, 10,000 made homeless, thousands injured. This web documentary in letter form offers not only general information about natural disasters. Its simple images, delicately drawn charts and the director’s voice over also create a very personal and emotional access to the subject.

We plunge into an impressive world of sound and colour. The shamans of the Yuruparí tribe live in the Amazonas rainforest in south-west Colombia. Their sacred sites are distributed over a network that precisely follows the line of the equator. The Yuruparí believe that they live at the centre of the world and that it’s their duty to keep the earth in spiritual balance.

Vaysha is not like other girls: she sees the past with her left eye, the future with her right eye. Caught in a blurred world between the two, the present is a blind spot for her. This 360° film combines traditional linocut with innovative animation techniques. The use of stereoscopic images enables us to see the world through Vaysha’s eyes.

We are in the midst of Paisley Smith’s reflections about Taro, a Japanese exchange student who committed suicide in his guest family’s home in Canada. The Nitobe Memorial Garden in Vancouver was the model for the paper world Paisley Smith designed for her personal memory course. This sensitively designed adaptation was created in cooperation with the NFB and Jam3.

Guided by Felicia’s and François’s voices we set out on a journey through the phases of bipolar disorder: an intimate insight into the constantly changing realities and states that are part of the typical symptoms of manic depression. “Manic VR” tells a non-fictional story by means of 3D animation, psychedelic pigmentation effects and room-scale interaction.

The main synagogue of Aleppo in Syria was heavily damaged in the civil war. This is the visualisation, detached from space and time, of the history of a place that no longer exists.

The main synagogue of Aleppo in Syria was heavily damaged in the civil war. This is the visualisation, detached from space and time, of the history of a place that no longer exists. It’s like stepping into an old black and white film where several strands of time converge. Encounters are suddenly possible: with characters who are still alive or who died decades, centuries ago.

In a mix of room-scale gaming and live action film Jerusalem can be experienced as a religious epicentre where three world religions overlap. Believers of all denominations work on the narrative of the place, pleading for mutual understanding. The starting point of this intellectual game is the ambivalent term of Abrahamism which initiates a trialogue between Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

In an age of dramatic climate predictions, each and everyone should ask themselves how big their own share in the destruction of the world is. Rage drives this work and rage is what it will ignite.

In an age of dramatic climate predictions, each and everyone should ask themselves how big their own share in the destruction of the world is. Rage drives this work and rage is what it will ignite. The “Spirit Bear” invites us to the iconic world of the indigenous artist Lawrence Paul Yuxweluptun and confronts us with the worst exploiters of nature: humans.
