NIGHTSWIMMING : DISCOTHEQUE IN ITALY FROM THE 1960s UNTIL NOW
The project examines the history of Italian dance clubs, as asocial and anthropological phenomenon. Italy’s social, cultural and economic evolution over the last 50 years has gradually transformed the idea of fun, and with it also the spaces in which fun takes shape. Today a paradox is evident: the clubs are no longer necessarily a physical place, but are now formed of events and theme nights. The history of Italian clubs is told through interviews with architects, DJs, writers, and intellectuals, as well as period photos and a new photographic survey of what remains of today’s discotheques.

Court métrage d'animation de Norman McLaren et de René Jodoin. Dans une sorte de jeu de mouvement, ils font virevolter des sphères blanches dans un ciel coloré en mouvance. Ces sphères s'alignent, se groupent et se multiplient, entrant parfois en collision l'une contre l'autre. Au piano, Glenn Gould exécute des extraits du « Clavecin bien tempéré » de Bach et donne au film son rythme et l'allure qui le caractérise.
This captivating short documentary profiles the young Canadian long-distance runner Bruce Kidd at 19 years old. Kidd eventually went on to win a gold and bronze medal at the 1962 Commonwealth Games, and was a competing member of the 1964 Canadian Olympic team. Directed by Don Owen (Nobody Waved Good-bye, Toronto Jazz), the film is luminously photographed by John Spotton and features poetic commentary composed and spoken by the great Anglo-American poet W.H. Auden. The camera follows Kidd’s sprightly movements as he runs on piers, practice tracks, and finally, in an international race. Oblivious to the clapping crowds and the flash of cameras, he knows full well that in the long run it is the cold stopwatch that tells the truth.
All visible visibly Moving things Spin or swing, One of the two, Move, as the limbs Of a runner do, To and fro, Forward and back, Or, as they swiftly Carry him In orbit go Round an endless track: So, everywhere, every Creature disporting Itself according To the law of its making In the rivals' dance Of a balanced pair Or the ring-dance Round a common centre, Delights the eye By its symmetry As it changes place Blessing the unchangeable Absolute rest Of the space all share
The camera's eye Does not lie But it cannot show The life within, The life of a runner, Of yours or mine, That race which is neither Fast nor slow, For nothing can ever Happen twice, That story which moves Like music when Begotten notes New notes beget Making the flowing Of time a growing Till what it could be At last it is, Where Fate is Freedom, Grace, and Surprise.

The Forever Tree, a black historical fantasy film, stars Wendell Pierce and Olivia Washington. It made its debut at the third Bentonville Film Festival, which aims to headline creative works by women and filmmakers of color.
Set during the Harlem Renaissance, The Forever Tree tells the mysterious, magical story of Tawny Bennett, an antiquarian's apprentice. The film is just 18 minutes long, but co-writer and producer Chrishaunda Lee Perez says she hopes someday they'll find the resources to tell a longer version of the story. Her star actress agrees. "It's like an adventure really is beginning," says Washington. "So I love the idea of seeing where it goes."

I felt it was the perfect place for Léo Walk and his choreographic imagination to perform, surrounded by the ruins, the surreal light of the costa verde and the intense voice of Mercedes Sosa. It creates this subtle feeling between vitality and melancholy that I wanted to express in this film. Sit back and enjoy!

Erdem x H&M have just released the Baz Luhrman-directed short film The Secret Life of Flowers for their collaboration campaign, and as you'd expect from three blockbuster names, it's a grandiose flowerbomb of epic proportions.
There's glamourous boys and girls, an enigmatic matriarch figure, a mansion, unrequited love and a spring that never ends. It's essentially a modern day Great Gatsby, which isn't really surprising given that Baz directed that film too.
