MARTIN PURYEAR BIG BLING, 4’

MARTIN
DIRECTOR: Ian Forster
OVERVIEW: “There’s a story in the making of objects,” says internationally acclaimed sculptor Martin Puryear. “There’s a narrative in the fabrication of things, which to me is fascinating.” This short documentary film, produced by the Peabody Award-winning arts organization ART21, explores the fabrication and installation of Puryear’s monumental public sculpture “Big Bling” (2016).

SADLY, DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER, 16’

SADLY
DIRECTOR: Megan-Leigh Heilig
OVERVIEW: Sadly, Diamonds are Forever is an experimental short film, presented in the fashion of a film essay, which documents various aspects of diamond production. The footage was shot at a Diamond Museum in Cape Town and at a mine dump in Johannesburg. These images are juxtaposed with a narrative of a person speaking to a young film-maker/artist about what exactly their film would be about, how the film maker/artist intends to document the diamond mining industry in South Africa and what approach they intended to take.

PORTRAIT OF A BIRD ON THE FOURTH FLOOR, 15’

Portrait
DIRECTOR: Alfonso Legaz
OVERVIEW: Julio is 66 years old. He is blind and after 40 years as singer remains in the musical underground. Between 2013 and 2014, I attended some trials that Julio performed with his musicians on the fourth floor of a old house located in the historic center of Valencia (Spain). My explores the self-knowledge process that requires the realization of a portrait of another person, assuming own blindness layers in the process, conditions apparent proximity and distance imposed by visual while representatción. I thought it was not very different from portraying a bird. I made the script on the poem by Jacques Prevert, «Pour faire le portrait d´un oiseau».
