A newcomer is beginning to settle in a little town with six other neighbours. Vegetation is scarce, but everyone is trying to grow their own tree. The new stranger is trying too hard, though, and she is met with the disapproval of her neighbours…

Herwig Weiser - Haus der Regierung

Haus der Regierung (Government House)

Herwig Weiser | 2018 | 11 min | AT / RU

RADAR Austrian Competition

Remembrance, projection, putting yourself in a place: the house vibrates. It does not stand still, and the film does not stop there, with the image of a moloch-like state bureaucracy whose history it testifies to as a ruin. This house acts as memory. Therefore it is a place of gathering not just for several pasts but also for intimations of a certain present and future. (Drehli Robnik)

Horizon leap

Bea Pántya | 2019 | 2 min 40 sec | HU

RADAR International Competition

We attune to the Forest’s organic rhythm as moving through her roots and branches. The trees come to subtle motion, their pulse paces and we become capable of leaping the horizon’s frontier. A soul’s journey through the Forest towards the stars.

Red Wong & Ray Mok | 2018 | 2 min 45 sec | CN

RADAR International Competition

Hong Kong is known as a concrete jungle and we seek for different angle to review Hong Kong’s city landscape from the sight of a bird. The music video of “Iam Twisq” is re-creating a urban playground by animating shapes, forms and colours extracted from the original buildings.

In Trance it

Reinhold Bidner | 2018 | 6 min 19 sec | AT

RADAR Austrian Competition

Inspired by and based on a spontaneous visit to Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien (Museum of Art History Vienna, Austria) in September 2018. Dusty paintings scream for attention and decide to become moving images in order to get recognized by an overstrained art audience.

Jack the Ripper_Then and now - Haemin Ko

Jack the Ripper_Then and now

Haemin Ko | 2018 | 2 min 23 sec | UK

RADAR International Competition

Given that Jack was never caught, and that some people believe he could have been multiple killers, should we represent him as only one man? By choosing to never reveal his identity, we insinuate that the Ripper could be any one of us, as well as in all of us — and that in today’s society, he rips women’s hopes for a brighter future, he rips their dreams into domestic submission, and he rips their self-esteems as well as their ability to control their own bodies.
Who was Jack then, and who is he now? What was abuse like then, and what is like now?
