In 1966, Claude Jutra shot the first skateboard film in history, “The Devil’s Toy”, with a hand-held camera. A film that’s not only about the new sport but also about being young, the urge to rebel, and intolerance. What’s left fifty years later? In this interactive documentary that can be browsed by geography and theme, fourteen directors from eleven countries on four continents show us what the rolling wheels mean to them.

The Duce Vita

Mussolini is alive! At least for the neo-fascists and diehards who make the pilgrimage to his hometown to create a bizarre cult around the dictator – saying a rosary included. Absurd and sinister!

90 years after Mussolini came to power, the interactive documentary immerses web users into the daily life of Predappio, the dictator's native place. It is a small city that was created ex novo to serve Mussolini’s worship and to spread propaganda about the myth around the dictator. During the fascist regime the city was visited by all Italians and numerous foreign heads of state. And even today, Predappio remains the most important place of pilgrimage for the “black shirts”, the Neo-Fascists, worshiping Mussolini and evoking the dark times from yesterday's Italy.

Based on British journalist Steven Poole’s intriguing book of the same name, the interactive documentary, visualizes the manipulative power of language and looks at the changing role and responsibility of the media. Consisting of short films, an interactive data visualization, and a participatory dictionary, the project critically and satirically reveals the unspoken messages and obscured meanings behind familiar media terms such as War on Terror, Weapons of Mass Destruction, Clean Cole, File Sharing, or Erectile Dysfunction, that are deliberately used to manipulte public opinion.
