Simultaneously boundless and intimate, collective and personal, an ode to and an example of a cinematic experience that is becoming increasingly rare, the darkness of a movie theatre in the course of the projection of a 35mm film print. Anouk De Clercq / Art film / Belgium / 2015 / 4
The beekeeper Shé Zuŏ Bīn performs a traditional rite of spring on one of the rocks. He allows queen bees to be placed on his body who then summon worker bees. By the end, Shé Zuŏ Bīn's body is entirely covered by bees. In a kind of trance, he stands utterly still. The buzzing of bees dominates all. He trusts the bees completely, and for a moment they lose all that is dangerous, terrifying. They are a protective shield. Marc Johnson / Art film / France / 2015 / 16

Beatriz Ruibal / Art film / Spain / 2015 / 22

A town observed from the hill facing it is treated as an architectural model illuminated by the lights of a home interior.

FLATFORM / Art film / Italy, Germany / 2015 / 8
