Mario PFEIFER films two adolescents from the Kreuzberg district in Berlin. They venture across different social spaces and appropriate them through an aesthetic gesture. Lupi de Alberto DE MICHELE films a group of thieves operating only on the foggiest of nights, when everything becomes invisible. Jeanne LIOTTA creates an animated portrait of a television tower at the top of a hill, the guard over the fog and electronic signals. Hee Won Navi LEE brings two voices together over the telephone to talk about ghosts and guide us across the city. Chia-Wei HSU films the Coliseum of Hong Kong, devoid of any sign of life, apart from a single voice. Nooshin FARHID reappropriates the images connected to representations created by the media, images of a degraded society. Tonci GACINA films the houses along the train line connecting Split to Zagreb by night, the light from the houses shining through the windows; brief moments of life.
