After a long journey through space the last two believers are about to reach their destination. Ananda, the space archaeologist, hopes to prove that Earth is not a myth and that all mankind did originated from the same tiny blue planet - but mostly he wants to prove his colleagues and his father wrong and to make the biggest discovery in history. Yamaka, the outcast rabbi, is searching for something subtler. He believes that Jerusalem is not just a mystical idea, but an actual place, where he might find the feeling of holiness missing in his life. Together they followed the clues and arrived at their destination, but instead of a living planet and a holy city, they find only the fragments of what once was...

This film is an audiovisual journey in the form of a three-part interaction between four narrators, emergent sound events and rhythmicized synaesthetic video sequences. A symbiosis of visual processes and natural and artificial sounds. Images, music, speech and sounds are commensurate compositional elements that lead the viewer through various microscopic and macroscopic structures of nature in a literal and transcendent sense, making them sensuous to the eye and ear.

376 AD — a refugee crisis in the Roman Empire. The destiny of a Germanic family and its tribe reveals a historical perception on today’s migrational movements. Inspired by actual events. The summer of 376 AD. The Gothic female warrior Elja is forced to give in to the marauding Huns and to seek shelter for herself and her clan in the Roman empire. Once at the border they must wait for orders and provisions from the Roman authorities. Elja tries to understand the Roman plans in spite of the language barrier. Reluctantly Elja must hand over her sword as the Roman general Cossus tells her that, being a woman, she will never be accepted as a warrior in Rome. She feels helplessly at the mercy of her alleged allies and their laws. Why is she being treated like a prisoner of war? Why can’t she travel onwards with her clan? What will happen when the Huns reach their camp? The Gothic faith — and in turn Elja’s entire identity — is put to the test. When Cossus surprisingly calls upon the Gothic clan leaders, tempers reach their boiling point and the situation escalates.

This dark comedy focuses on the themes of remembrance, and the marks we leave behind us after death. A reflection on how memory can be manipulated in the perception of those who grieve the death of their beloved ones. Giorgio Priscoli, owner of a funeral home, launches a new service for the families of the departed: to enhance and embellish the memory left by loved ones after their death. Helped by his colleagues, Giorgio turns ordinary lives of ordinary people into fabulous or even adventurous existences. Thus, the manipulation of memory becomes collective joy and approval. Nothing is final, definitive, not even death. At the end of the funeral, during the final act of life, the last eulogy is recited and thus the departed has the chance to reborn in people’s eyes, to live a new existence as a spy, a philanthropist or a hero. Never say never.

Original song uses the disappearing flowers, telling disappearing people in the war. Here is a symbol of piggy losing his mind in the city.

“Ayre” is a namesake piece. It’s also a message to “look up from the device and get back to nature and the Spirit” song. A band member commented, “We love cell phones and devices but there is whole world out there waiting to communicate with us, if we will just listen.” The Band loves to showcase the beauty of their state in their films and they are excited to demonstrate the strength of Utah’s diverse culture built around the blessings of freedom. When asked about the song’s meaning, one replied, “When you stand at the cliffs of Cedar Breaks… if you look up at night or down in the day, either way you can see millions of years in the past as well as the endless possibilities in either direction. You can look across the vast waves of green cedars that are now, and realize in the “Myst” of all that time that you have choices to make that will affect generations. You realize that you must step forward with meaning and intent.”

The music video “Fawn” is from Mira Wunder’s new single “Licht Aus” is centered around the theme of mother-daughter relationships. The video was shot with the Miscanthus field in the south of Germany, giving the historical look of an American plantation. This location itself, acts like a third character, giving the feeling of imprisonment and entrapment. The intimate setting augments the complex emotional world of a mother and her grown daughter. Only at the end of the film do they find each other, when the rebellious daughter breaks her self-built walls against her mother. They, for the first time, begin to pursue a common goal, symbolized by the common hunt for a chicken.

Truth hides in the margins and the artist’s role is to point to it. The question of what happens after we die is a universal question explored by paranormal researcher and experimental composer Michael Esposito. He straddles the line between spiritual and material and asks the audience to reflect on our purpose, legacy and what our actions say about who we are.

When Jimmy and Hannah finally find a buyer for their holiday home on the Greek volcano island Santorini, the ex-couple returns to the place where they broke up two years ago. In tow: Their seven-year-old daughter Luca whose love the parents compete for. Hardly arrived on the island, old tensions and conflicts appear despite every effort to make it right. Above it all is Hannah, who is jealous of the close father-daughter-relationship she is not able to reach. But the upcoming sale of the house triggers something in Jimmy as well — the irrefutable end of his former dream: to have a future as a family.

Whilst we remain safe and sound, watching the highest grossing cat fail compilation - all that is kept out of sight gets back to us in this consumerist nightmare. On a global playground, without bounds, the cat’s body is devoured, exploited and controlled - its fear of pain being stronger than its longing for freedom. Objects are fetishized and subjects made into things that are quantifiable and ready for use. They are the natural resources of a luxury they will never know. We are here because you were there — and waste is dumped in the ocean. In the end, bodies reveal the causes and effects of power, pleasure and hate.
