Platic Bag

Lovely short movie by Ramin Bahrani about the long journey of a plastic bag... And don't be surprised if the voice of the bag sounds familiar: it's the voice of nobody less than Werner Herzog. See the short movie here:

The Graveyard
The Graveyard

What a great game: In The Graveyard you play an old lady who visits a graveyard. You walk around, sit on a bench and listen to a song. It’s more like an explorable painting than an actual game, an experiment with realtime poetry, storytelling without words. The Graveyard is an emotional journey of empathy.

Stefan Nadelman

Stefan Nadelman, based in Portland, has made this beautiful classic: Food Fight is an abridged history of American-centric war, from World War II to present day, told through the foods of the countries in conflict. Watch as traditional comestibles slug it out for world domination in this chronologically re-enacted smorgasbord of aggression.
