This is the list of the films screened at August 2017 Short Film Factory edition.

 

A WHOLE WORLD FOR A LITTLE WORLD

BEST FILM @ STTP FEBRUARY 2017 AWARDS

Director: Fabrice Bracq

Country: France

Duration: 15:00

Synopsis:

A woman tells a great story to her baby. In the manner of a tale with princes and princesses, she remains into his memories to pass on his daughter.

 

#MEAT

BEST EXPERIMENTAL SHORT FILM @ STTP FEBRUARY 2017 AWARDS

Director: Marc J. M. van den Broek

Country: Germany

Duration: 07:10

Synopsis:

#MEAT distills a hundred years of human inventiveness and arrives at a wordless digital dystopia that’s as inescapable as man’s thirst for knowledge and power.

Shot as a series of fragments by Belgian-born artist and sculptor Marc van den Broek, this six-minute art film resembles a retrofitted tale of Faust.

Essential elements of humanity – the written word, the human body, music – are clasped and reduced to mechanical function by van den Broek’s eerily beautiful

sculptural restraints, strapped first onto a hand, a leg, head, finally an entire body. Hooks and eyes in the bowels of a warehouse reflect a fragment of binary script and double up as industrialization’s invitation to mass consumption. Ancient songlines metamorphose into the hum of drones.
