Jibade-Khalil Huffman: First Person Shooter, 2016
First Person Shooter invites the viewer to navigate footage from violent and formulaic video games, TV, videos and texts by Jibade-Khalil Huffman (b. 1981, USA), and a disquieting soundtrack, to reflect on the black community’s daily struggles in present day USA.

Musa paradisiaca: Masters of Velocity, 2017
Musa paradisiaca is a dialogue-based artistic project by Eduardo Guerra (b. 1986, Portugal) and Miguel Ferrão (b. 1986, Portugal). Masters of Velocity examines relations between thoughts and actions through notions of desire, probability, and velocity. Inside a pilot’s head one wonders about how different things desire each other mutually: “The pilot wishes to become plane, the plane wishes to become ground.”

Robertas Narkus and Jokūbas Čižikas: The Race, 2015
The Race by Roberas Narkus (b. 1983, Lithuania) and Jokūbas Čižikas (b. 1988, Lithuania) takes place in a Lithuanian countryside, during the experimental engineering camp, where a drone is in pursuit of cars, objects and people. The words spoken in the film are remixed with dance music, rap verses and combined with old Lithuanian proverbs creating a musical narrated by a drone.
