In an isolating world of products and materialism, sometimes you just need a little pink blob.

CODES OF HONOR (Jon Rafman | 14 min.)
A legendary arcade video gamer questions the significance of his legacy, and the tradition itself, in this fascinating hybrid of documentary and machinema .

DYLAN (Ania Winiarska | 29 min.)
A touching and enjoyable portrait of an outsider teen whose only religion is heavy metal.

WALT DISNEY’S TAXI DRIVER (Bryan Boyce | 5 min.)
Where would Travis Bickle fit in with the Disney-fied New York City?

HOWL (Nathalie Bettelheim and Sharon Michaeli | 7 min.)
This stark and poignant animation expresses every parent’s fear that their child might somehow be unknowable, and every parent’s ideal of accepting the unusual.

THE PUB (Joseph Pierce | 7 min.)
A day of afternoon drinking can make anyone seem as ghoulish as the patrons in this darkly comic animation about a typically odd community

AMERICAN JUGGALO (Sean Dunne | 23 min.)
For some, a gathering of Insane Clown Posse fans might seem like an apocalyptic nightmare, but for those in attendance, it’s a welcoming family. “We have alcohol and explosives, that’s how awesome we are. Woot woot!”

MUSIC

Future Shuttle
"Close your eyes and get ready for some interstellar vibes coming to you from a galaxy named Brooklyn, splendidly meandering, NASA approved spaced-out jams that instantly take you to places far far away from home. Future Shuttle is the joint endeavor of Jessa Farkas and Camilla Padgitt-Coles, and their synth-driven experimentalism is all colors of the universe condensed into sounds that spontaneously and randomly spread over canvas, apparently without any deeper concept yet still eventually adding up to breathtaking abstract art.

Though both Birth Of Europa and Fields Of Dreams have already been floating around in the world of fiber optic cables for a while, Future Shuttle have just now finally finished their debut EP Water’s Edge on which both tunes will appear, only in slightly more professionally recorded versions. Produced by Sam Haar of the mighty Brooklynites Blondes, the record will contain six tracks that won’t have ended before the minute hand has finished its course, which might be considered a little excessive for a piece designated as EP, but after all, what is one hour considering the age of the universe?" No Fear of Pop
