Descriptions:

 

1 Circulos Cuadrados, (square circles) 15 minutes

A short film about composition, how it works between the different art forms, dance, painting, music and cinema.Using the basic forms of composition (circle square and diagonal) to create a piece for every discipline to come together as one work in cinema.

 

2. Pulse of the city (Hartritme van de stad)

 An interdisciplinary film in which the dancer takes us on a rhythmic tour through the city of Rotterdam. He encounters different people during his trip and merges with the individuals he meets, as a chameleon, taking on multiple identities. Every person our main character encounters has its own personal rhythm. The dancer lives the lives and takes on the rhythm of different inhabitants for a certain time. Through the diverse lives he adapts, our main character visits several locations, practices a variety of professions and experiences different cultures. Through the dancer the rhythm of Rotterdam becomes visible.

 

Director's note: "Pulse of the City is a mixture of fiction and genuine events." "A realistic interaction develops between the rhythm of the city, the rhythm of the choreography and the rhythm of the film.

 

3. Cinema al Mare, Cinema at the Sea

An impression of a filmmaker who visits a travelling film festival in southern Italy.

 

The film reflects the love for film in Italy. It’s an impression of a travelling film festival that was organised in southern Italy by a man who loves the area he was born so much that he decided to invite over twenty people from Holland to participate at the film festival and to learn about the culture of this particular place called Basilicata.

 

4. De Grijns/ The Grin

Is a film about feelings of fear and insecurity that are part of a woman in love. The film is carried by the music piece that takes us through memories and imagination of the main character.
