Mark Lotterman - Happy
France, Netherlands, 2017, Alice Saey
People should be happy. Even this Egyptian goose, who tries to cast a spell on us with a seductive dance. Its gracious and clumsy movements captivate us. But it’s not the only one to master the dance. Three flocks of geese each led by their guru goose also share the pond; all of them torn between their desire to express their own individuality and the urge for group behavior. Soon the water begins to rise. Never mind. The geese will keep on dancing for us until they drown.
A video about the search for ones own identity through seemingly audacious self-expression on the one hand and the undeniable drowning into the masses on the other.

Folly, "La Bêtise"
Canada, 2016, Thomas Corriveau
Two characters meet and confront each other in a merciless battle. The story, loosely inspired by Goya’s series of etchings “The Disasters of War”, is revealed through a profusion of black and white images, brief gestures repeated in an obsessive and hypnotic manner.
