FLOWER OF AFTERIMAGE
Fusako Baba (JP)
Asako Miyaki (JP)
This film explores a parallel universe. It slowly guides us to the moment when, by straying away from the secret pathway, a mysterious space opens up, in which sounds and shapes appear from the hidden beauty of flowers.

Sean Caruso (CA)
Edging between science and digital art, Cernnunos tells a subtle and playful story about the CERN and Large Hadron Collider. Will Man be able to control the technology he created, or will technology destroy him, himself, his great works, and all of human race?
Visuals and audio : Sean Caruso (CA)
Roman Zavada (CA)
Dominic St-Amant et Bruno Colpron (CA)
Resonance Boreale (here in a short film version) is a film in which the music of pianist Roman Zavada dialogs through his instrument’s vibrations with northern lights filmed in 360°. Plunge at the heart of the boreal forest!
Visuals : Dominic St-Amant & Bruno Colpron (CA)
Julius Horsthuis (NL)
Isometric tells the story of a slow descent into the deepest depths, a world made of constant recombinations, like Julius Horsthuis’s work on the infinite nature of fractals. In this imaginary world, you travel in a distorted way, surrounded by illegible patterns.
