Inside a cavernous building, the interwoven movements of humans and machines produce overwhelming sounds and images. Taking place in one of the largest recycling facilities in the US, SINGLE STREAM blurs the line between observation and abstraction and takes a close look at the problem of waste through a visual and sonic exploration.

Hacked Circuit
USA 2014; R: Deborah Stratman; D: Gregg Barbanell, Darrin Mann; 15min, DCP, OV

Hacked Circuit

A single-shot, choreographed portrait of the Foley process, revealing multiple layers of fabrication and imposition. The circular camera path moves us inside and back out of a Foley stage in Burbank, CA. While portraying sound artists at work, typically invisible support mechanisms of filmmaking are exposed, as are, by extension and quotation, governmental violations of individual privacy.

The Realist
USA 2013; R: Scott Stark; 36min, HDCam, ohne Dialoge

THE REALIST is an experimental and highly abstracted melodrama, a „doomed love story“ storyboarded with flickering still photographs, peopled with department store mannequins, and located in the visually heightened universe of clothing displays, fashion islands and storefront windows.
