The curators of HearteartH prepared a presentation of all the videos so far involved in the project, for the dissemination of video art and especially for Konvent. Videos from around the earth show the huge variety of sensibilities and techniques approaching the theme of HearteartH, and thus are employed to show our world. The peculiarity of this presentation is that there will be fragments of all the videos of the collective project so it is going to be an intense artistic mosaic, inciting to complete the visions on our own.

Bipolar (2014) |10th Montreal Underground Film Festival (MUFF) May 21-24, 2015 (Montreal, Canada)

BIPOLAR (2014)
Film by Fred L’Epee, Elam Ellis Embarq and Ed Alvarado
10th Montreal Underground Film Festival (MUFF)
May 21-24, 2015
Montreal, Canada

MUFF celebrates and promotes low-budget filmmakers who challenge the limitations of mainstream cinema, making the world a more exciting, engaging place to live. We showcase inventive filmmaking that pushes the boundaries of independent film. We encourage experimental work that is radical, visionary, subversive.

MUFF10

MUFF is a small, dedicated collective of programmers in search of creative moving image work featuring any experimental combination of narrative, non-narrative, documentary, animation, sound, style, performance. We are looking for films that highlight the power of the paracinematic to disrupt the status quo—deviant work, unafraid to challenge and enrich the spectator’s relationship to the everyday and to the medium itself.

MUFF is committed to the idea that some of the most unique and critical voices are those that come from the margins—artistic, social, cultural, political. Expose your vision to MUFF!

Film “Spiderland” (2014) now available

 

Film by Fred L’Epee
In collaboration with Kenneth Gentry

Genre Experimental
Year 2014
Duration 07mn 01s

 

Among lost hopes, humankind is in search of our lost identities. This film is an archetype representing the surreality of humankind. Primitive mental images inherited from the earliest human consumers are ever present in our collective unconsciousness. The self-representation from the term “consumer society” is the simplification of the term “consumer-led industrial society.” The notion of consumer society refers to a social and economic order based on the systematic creation and manipulation of desire. This is the way to maintain the consumption of goods, though it’s often unsustainable and even produced and sold in anticipation of a planned obsolescence. However, the consumer continues to blindly consume. Among lost hopes and identities, humankind is now in search of our lost stars. – Synopsis
