Ima Robot - Greenback Boogie (USA, 6min)
Directed by: Frank Jerky
The video begins from a couple of public toilet, and then slowly, with time the camera will move sideways and upwards, multiplying the bathrooms, with just about anything coming in and out of it.
Whether someone comes in to pee, or to snort cocaine, to get laid or throw up, drunk dancing or smoking weed, from a priest to Santa Claus, from a drag-queen to a policeman, from a biker to a punk, from a gentleman with a briefcase to a little girl, from an old lady with a cane to someone dressed as Elvis, from a whore to a serial killer etc. The ending is a crescendo with the camera moving upwards again showing more and more bathrooms, until the closing of the video, when the screen will become an infinite mosaic of bathrooms.
In Montauk (USA, 67 mins.)
Directed by: Kim Cummings
Written by: Kim Cummings
George Katt, Lukas Hassel, Nina Kaczorowski
Julie Wagner has everything today’s young woman thinks she wants: a successful husband who adores her, a baby on the way, a close circle of family and friends, and a career as a photographer that is about to take off. So why is she alone in Montauk in the middle of December? During the cold, stark days, Julie throws herself into capturing her artistic vision for an upcoming solo show, yielding works of deep passion and instinct; at night, she restlessly taps away at her computer, plagued by uncertainty about the impending trajectories of her life.
When a prickly but brilliant composer-musician knocks on her door with an odd request, Julie ushers in a series of events that will bring her in contact with her buried hopes and fears, and force her to make choices she couldn’t have fathomed. At once shocking and wise, In Montauk is a now-familiar story turned inside-out by a main character who can’t help but put herself into the most uncomfortable position of all—confronting life’s imperfect choices in the hopes of grasping one through which she can be true to herself.
