KARMA (shortfilm)

a narrative film in German

OFFICIAL SELECTION
Berlin Short Film Festival 2015

FEATURED ON SHORTFIL.MS

It does not matter, where in the world you are and who you are. Everybody struggles, and so do the characters of this 6min short. Living completely unaware of each others existence and yet so close to each other – in the financial district of Frankfurt, Germany, the ways of two strangers cross. A banker without any hope and a homeless person with even less – can there be any good outcome to this?

Fed up with water and electricity shortages in their shelter, and the lack of response from the owner, its residents protest, throwing the contents of the shelter on to the street. Will the police help them?

Dustin Hoffman in 1971 on Duplicity and Famosity | Blank on Blank | PBS Digital Studios

a talk in English

"I did as much as I could do at that time in my life ... I tried as hard as I could and I couldn't do better"
- Dustin Hoffman in 1971

Interview by Milton Hoffman from the Pacifica Radio Archives

Hear more from this rare interview: http://blankonblank.org/dustin

We came across this rarely heard interview with Dustin Hoffman recorded in 1971. It's such a thoughtful, unrushed conversation from a Hollywood icon when he was just a few years into becoming a star. He was still catching his breath and asking the questions that so many of us wonder when professional careers and a family life are beginning to take shape.

Even though Hoffman was only 33 at the time of the interview, he said Hollywood already viewed as an old timer, part of the establishment. This despite the fact The Graduate, Hoffman’s breakout film, had been released a few years earlier. That was followed up by his role as Ratso Rizzo in Midnight Cowboy -- the X rated film that won an oscar for best picture.

Listening to this interview tape, we were drawn to this idea of the struggles that pop up between different generations and the questions one confronts internally as he or she gets older.

Enjoy. Here’s Dustin Hoffman like you've rarely heard him before.

CHOICE QUOTES
"When I was an adolescent it was a very, very painful time for me. I had a lot of trouble in school."
"I grew up on the coattails of an aggressive society. I carried a knife taped to my leg. I never used it, but it was there"
"when I was an adolescent it was a very, very painful time for me. I had a lot of trouble in school."
"'I'm walking here. I'm walking here.' That wasn't in the script. That was an accident. We were walking across the street, and a cab came by and threatened to ruin the shot. At that moment, I was not Ratso, I was just myself trying to save the scene."
"I've tried to bring out unattractive aspects of me in roles that I've played, and sometimes achieved that. I can't apologize for anything I've done."
"I've just been around three years. I'm thought of as a veteran. I'm no longer a newcomer. I'm kind of establishment I guess."

Get more Dustin Hoffman including the day the building next door blew up, starting out with Gene Hackman and Robert Duvall, becoming Ratso Rizzo and that Volkswagon he did before he was famous:

4960

a narrative film in Croatian

Aida and Jozef try to communicate past the distance from Point A to Point B - an exposed space, clearly visible to snipers, prevents them from doing so. Award-winning short film 4960 earned Jury comments: "Brutal, riveting, fearless...profound depiction of human hunger for connection, scathing social commentary...dead on convergence of ethics and aesthetics."

hypocentre -short film-

a documentary in English

Imagine an empty worrying Paris.
Imagine that human action is more harmful to our fragile planet.

First, "hypocentre" was a technical exercise for us. Then we decided to focus the film on the environmental side.
It's new for us, more specialists in the travel video, to try to do a short film.

All the technical side of this film is explained on our website (with english translator) here: http://menilmonde.com/projet-hypocentre/

The blackfly song

a music video in English

'Twas early in the spring when I decide to go
For to work up in the woods in North Ontar-i-o;
And the unemployment office said they'd send me through
To the Little Abitibi with the survey crew
And the black flies, the little black flies,
Always the black fly no matter where you go;
I'll die with the black fly a-pickin' my bones,
In North Ontar-i-o-i-o, in North Ontar-i-o.

And the man Black Tobey was the captain of the crew
And he said, I'm gonna tell you boys, what we're gonna do:
They want to build a power dam; we must find a way
For to make the Little Ab flow around the other way
With the black flies, the little black flies,
Always the black fly no matter where you go;
I'll die with the black fly a-pickin' my bones,
In North Ontar-i-o-i-o, in North Ontar-i-o.

So we survey to the east, survey to the west,
Couldn't make our minds up how to do it best;
Little Ab, Little Ab, what shall I do?
I'm all but goin' crazy with the survey crew
And the black flies, the little black flies,
Always the black fly no matter where you go;
I'll die with the black fly a-pickin' my bones,
In North Ontar-i-o-i-o, in North Ontar-i-o.

It was blackfly, blackfly, everywhere,
A-crawlin' in your whiskers, crawlin' in your hair;
Swimmin' in the soup, swimmin' in the tea,
And the devil take the blackfly, let me be.
Black flies, the little black flies,
Always the black fly no matter where you go;
I'll die with the black fly a-pickin' my bones,
In North Ontar-i-o-i-o, in North Ontar-i-o.

Black Tobey fell to swearin'; the work went slow,
The state of our morale was a-gettin' pretty low;
The flies swarmed heavy; hard to catch your breath,
As you staggered up and down the trail a-talkin' to yourself
With the black flies, the little black flies,
Always the black fly no matter where you go;
I'll die with the black fly a-pickin' my bones,
In North Ontar-i-o-i-o, in North Ontar-i-o.

Well now, the bull cook's name was Blind River Joe,
If it hadn't been for him we'd 've never pulled through;
'Cause he bound up our bruises and he kidded us for fun,
And he lathered us with bacon grease and balsam gum.
And the black flies, the little black flies,
Always the black fly no matter where you go;
I'll die with the black fly a-pickin' my bones,
In North Ontar-i-o-i-o, in North Ontar-i-o.

And at last the job was over; Black Tobey said we're through
With the Little Abitibi and the survey crew!
'Twas a wonderful experience and this I know:
I'll never go again to North Ontar-i-o
With the black flies, the little black flies,
Always the black fly no matter where you go;
I'll die with the black fly a-pickin' my bones,
In North Ontar-i-o-i-o, in North Ontar-i-o.

And the black flies, the little black flies,
Always the black fly no matter where you go;
I'll die with the black fly a-pickin' my bones,
In North Ontar-i-o-i-o, in North Ontar-i-o.

Recorded by Wade Hemsworth (Folk Songs Of The Canadian North Woods, trk#12, ©1955 Folkways Records & Service Corp., New York, NY, FW 6821, Library of Congress Catalogue Card No. R 55-370). Also recorded by Wade Hemsworth as Blackfly Song (The Songs Of Wade Hemsworth, trk#3, 1995, CD produced by Penny Rose and edited by Simon Pressey for Good Noise).

See more songs by Wade Hemsworth.

Liner notes: Anyone who spends a summer in the northern bush country will sympathize with the sentiment Wade Hemsworth has expressed in this song, which tells the tribulations of a survey trip on the Little Abitibi, a tributary of the more famous Abitibi River which flows into James Bay. Wade says: "We were on a survey for the Ontario Hydro Electric Commission when this song was born. The flies affected some of the boys so badly that they had to stop work 'til the swelling of their faces subsided so that they could see. Incidentally, Tobey Colpitts, who is the 'Black Tobay' of the song is still surveying for the Ontario Hydro [1955].
