Alfonso Cuarón and Naomi Klein – Shock Doctrine

The Shock Doctrine (2007, 19.1MB, 6:47 min.)

Internet video version of Naomi Klein’s 2007 book, much more than an advertisement.
Hard to watch, as it should be.

‘America’s free market’ policies have come to dominate the world– through the exploitation of disaster-shocked people and countries. {source}

Produced by Klein and Alfonso Cuarón, directed by Jonas Cuarón.

Adam Mufti – Garden Cities of the Future

Adam Mufti – Garden Cities of the Future (2008, 53MB, 7:19)

Remarkable, hypnotic work from the incredibly talented Adam Mufti.
Part meditation on modern life, part perhaps futuristic foreboding,
this piece sort of leaves me speechless, though I fear a lack of
editorializing might portray lukewarm feelings.
It’s really just that I’d rather a viewer experience this on his/her own.
I thought I’d watched a 3 minute piece – only when posting this did
I discover the actual runtime is more than double what it seems.
In this case, that’s exceptional.
The video also features the voice of London actress Juliet Rylance.
The whole thing, the composition, the editing, all of it: truly stunning,
took my breath away. Find a quiet spot and enjoy.

PSST! Pass it on…



PSST gets designers, animators, and directors together for
collaborative film projects every year. Their main concern
is process, which they explain comes from a fusion of the
Dadaist game Exquisite Corpse and the sometimes childhood
game, Telephone.
Whatever their theory, their annual collections are stellar.
