*_Der gekerbte Raum aus Stein gegen ein Ideal aus Glas [The notched space from stone against an ideal of glass]_* _(Director: *Brenda Lien* // D 2015 // Dauer: 14:24 Min.)_ With this furiously lavish experimental animation film Brenda Lien poses the all deciding question: Rather float with the current or take up position?

*_Battlefields_* _(Director: *Gunter Deller* // D 2014 // Dauer: 3:21 Min.)_ Stomping feet in time, a meadow tramped down, and electronic beats. With a light smile the film depicts rave culture as it has not been seen yet.

*_Metatron_* _(Director: *Michael Schwarz* // D 2014 // Dauer: 3:00 Min.)_ Archangels!?!? On the internet? Metatron is Found Footage right between chuckling face gymnastics critical of the media and the possibility of revitalizing subtle energy fields. *In the presence of director Michael Schwarz*
