Arnold occasionally wonders whether the world he lives in is really real and whether his life is really his. But in this pitch-black comedy, no one but Arnold seems to notice that existence is played out in episodes, infiltrated by product placement and interrupted by cliff hangers. What if the world is just a stage setting?

Music is rhythm, vibration, pure emotion. But what are emotions? And why do we experience them physically?

Music is rhythm, vibration, pure emotion. But what are emotions? And why do we experience them physically? The video for “Electronic Performers” by Air follows the pulse of emotion that spreads into our innermost bodies like a warm wave, entering through receptors into the finest branches of our nervous system and the tiniest particles of our existence.

A meteorite overgrown with green lands on a planet populated by strange creatures to kindle light, colour, fertility and love. Plants begin to shimmer, animals become couples or become one with each other in various ways. A tale in three acts about desire, love and loneliness in wondrously surreal snapshots.

A man is sitting on a chair in a room. He has been sitting there for so long that he’s unable to get up. He is immersed in thought: where do we come from? Who created us? Or was it just coincidence? Is there life after death? What if this room is only a product of my imagination? What if the world itself is only imagination? And: do I exist?

A trip through time and space in Barcelona turns into a haunting journey right into the vulnerability of a city. “Obras” takes us into the bowels of a historic district, lets us follow its residents and listen to their voices before we witness violent, restless destruction and brute reconstruction.

“One day, a man entered my belly. The next day, since he was still there, I realized that I would have to get used to him.” Using few words and expressive black and white images, “One Day” creates a metaphor for the emergence of togetherness and the great physical emptiness left behind when it’s over.

A deserted inner city district. Wind blows through broken windowpanes. Here and there traces of humans can be found, evoking the life that once pulsed here.

A deserted inner city district. Sharp outlines on dusty ground. Wind blows through broken windowpanes. Wild dogs roam empty courtyards, their barks sounding spaces populated only by the echo of vanished voices. Here and there traces of humans can be found, evoking, like a kind of modern Pompeii, the life that once pulsed here.
