The Wehrmacht dances the “Lambeth Walk” which in the late 1930s was very popular and abhorred by the Nazis. Charles A. Ridley brilliantly re-edits German newsreels and propaganda films into an absurd and comical military parade. A counter offensive of British humour.

Invocation Robert Morgan

The birth of an animation figure, without metaphorical frills. For Robert Morgan, single frames take over the function of sperms and inseminate the camera.

The birth of an animation figure, without metaphorical frills. For Robert Morgan, single frames take over the function of sperms and inseminate the camera. An organism grows and is flung out into the world. The ordinary, slippery horror of a puppet animation shoot.

A mining village in South Yorkshire. The mine, one of the last in Great Britain, is about to be closed. Les, a miner in his early 60s, tries to keep the spirit of the legendary strike 30 years ago awake. But the only thing people here are still interested in is the monument for the victims of that time and the right numbers at Bingo. The young leave or become casual labourers. Ruth Grimberg highlights a culture whose biggest fight is against forgetting.

Mechanical clocks may be out of fashion, but they give the charismatic protagonist of this short portrait something to hold on to in his life. He spends all his time repairing them in his modest flat. When he advances with precise movements to replace nearly invisible elements it looks like open heart surgery. The camera as an attentive observer and the ticking clock hands define the borders of his personal philosophy, which owes more to his experience of life than to functioning devices.
