Chanel | Sharing all my colours with you
In Chanel | Sharing all my colours with you, Dutch-Surinamese dancer Chanel Vyent removes society's imposed straitjacket and steps outside -- to freely explore her body's relationship to architecture, shape, color, and form.
TROIANE
Over the course of a single night, rain and wind tore down 14 million trees in Northern Italy, transforming a lush mountain region into an apocalyptic landscape. TROIANE tells the tale of 400 tree trunks that were retrieved and transported to the opposite end of Italy, where they played one last role: as the backdrop for a famous Greek tragedy.
Recoding Art
What makes art ART? A researcher and an artist seek the answer to this question by using commercial artificial intelligence products to analyze contemporary art.
Closed captions available
Frames
A speculative fiction which anticipates a near-future reality, Frames follows a woman as she walks through Montréal, being surveilled and tracked every step of the way. Each movement she makes is logged and interpreted by the city's system, but is it drawing an accurate picture of who she truly is?
Symphony of the Body
A soulful ode to the body's ability to claim space and generate warmth amid the cold and overwhelming architecture of Rotterdam. Can an interaction between two men, presenting softness with dance and music, break the rigidities of steel and stone?
Flower Punk
Japanese artist Azuma Makoto has tantalized the world by launching bonsai trees into outer space and plunging floral sculptures to the bottom of the ocean. Flower Punk takes a hypnotizing look into Makoto's process, illuminating his punk rock ethos and honoring his deep contemplation of the life and death cycles of flora.
