Eine Kindheitsgeschichte mit Bildern aus Google Maps: Now I Know Where to Find You

In „Now I Know Where to Find You“ erzählt uns Diego Berakha Otal die Geschichte seiner Kindheit mit Bildern aus Google Maps. Schöne Idee.

„Now I Know Where to Find you“ is a story about my childhood in Spain and the trip I made to Argentina when I was 12 years old. One day I decided that I wanted to live with my father. I missed him too much. 10,000 km later a whole new life began for me, but my childhood memories didn’t fade away. And, of all these memories, the memory of my yaya (grandmother) was always vivid. She raised me as if I was her own son, when none of my parents were ready to do that.

The story stems from a unique discovery that I made while wandering around with Google Maps. This discovery was so moving that I felt the need to tell the story, my story.

Kurzfilm: The Beatles – Now And Then – The Last Beatles Song

Weil es Popgeschichte ist. Und weil es der (vielleicht) wirklich letzte Beatles-Song ist, der nach so vielen Jahren dank KI und Yoko Ono fertiggestellt wurde, so dass das Buch der Beatles zu Ende geschrieben wurde.

Now and Then’s eventful journey to fruition took place over five decades and is the product of conversations and collaborations between the four Beatles that go on to this day. The long mythologised John Lennon demo was first worked on in February 1995 by Paul, George and Ringo as part of The Beatles Anthology project but it remained unfinished, partly because of the impossible technological challenges involved in working with the vocal John had recorded on tape in the 1970s. For years it looked like the song could never be completed. But in 2022 there was a stroke of serendipity. A software system developed by Peter Jackson and his team, used throughout the production of the documentary series Get Back, finally opened the way for the uncoupling of John’s vocal from his piano part. As a result, the original recording could be brought to life and worked on anew with contributions from all four Beatles. This remarkable story of musical archaeology reflects The Beatles’ endless creative curiosity and shared fascination with technology. It marks the completion of the last recording that John, Paul and George and Ringo will get to make together and celebrates the legacy of the foremost and most influential band in popular music history.

Kurzfilm: One Revolution Per Minute

Erik Wernquist zeigt mit seinem Kurzfilm „One Revolution Per Minute“ wie es wohl wäre, sich auf einer kreisförmigen Raumstation zu befinden, die sich mit einer Umdrehung pro Minute dreht. Und das fühlt sich dann offenbar schneller an als man sich wohl vorstellen würde.

It takes place aboard the „SSPO Esperanta“ – a planetary orbiter that spins around itself at a rate of one revolution per minute (1 RPM). With a radius of 450 meters, the spin generates artificial gravity with an effect of approximately 0.5 g along its main deck.

With the „Esperanta“ I wanted to create a leisure-like environment, such as a hotel or cruise ship, and explore what the views could be like onboard when the orbiter visits some of the worlds in our solar system. I was also particularly interested in how light and shadows from the sun play around in the interior as it spins around.

Sizilianische Hände

Ein Kurzfilm, der einzig Hände aus Sizilien zeigt. Auf die achtet man gemeinhin ja eher selten, dabei sind die unser aller wichtigsten Werkzeuge.

The hands of a human can tell a million stories. This film is an intimate portrait of Sicily. It simply shows the hands of the people from the island in action. Shot on a single roll of 35mm analog film.
