New York City, one early morning in 1959: a chicken turns a corner, passes a dumbfounded pedestrian, climbs up the stairs to an apartment, knocks on the door with its beak and, after a short wait, is admitted. The same morning walk is repeated in 2009 and 2059. The conclusion: our planet is in truly bad shape.

All Is Full of Love Chris Cunningham

“It’s like Kamasutra meets Industrial Robotics,” British video artist Chris Cunningham commented, probably delivering the most accurate description of his erotic music video for Björk’s “All Is Full of Love”.

“It’s like Kamasutra meets Industrial Robotics,” British video artist Chris Cunningham commented, probably delivering the most accurate description of his erotic music video for Björk’s “All Is Full of Love”, in which two identical robots in elegant white and bearing Björk’s features passionately kiss and touch each other in the sterile light of an operating room.

The world a ball of wool. Nature a piece of knitting. Just don’t pull the end of the thread! Sarah Cox’s less than three minutes long film creates a remarkable image of climate change and its consequences for our ecosystem. “Don’t Let It All Unravel” was produced for the Live Earth Concerts which took place in 2007 to raise awareness of global warming.

A film-game, inspired by Ludwig Wittgenstein’s quote, “What prevents me from supposing that this table either vanishes or alters its shape when no one is observing it (…)?” Paul Bush accepts the challenge and starts a frenzied transformation of everything that’s not nailed down. Who knows what’s real after all? And where is the evidence that I really know something?

Mr. Madila is a spiritual healer and gifted advisor in matters of impotence, black magic, love voodoo and gambling addiction, or problems with the immigration authorities. A series of conversations between him and the filmmaker teaches us a lot about the nature of reality, its inner spirit and the colour of nothing. “Everything is mostly nothing.”
