Madame Tutli-Putli

a narrative film in no language

Court métrage d'animation dans lequel Madame Tutli-Putli monte à bord d'un train de nuit, traînant avec elle tous ses biens. Voyageant en solitaire, elle partage sa cabine avec des étrangers d'apparence tantôt bienveillante, tantôt menaçante. Quand tombe la nuit, elle se retrouve au cœur d'une angoissante aventure métaphysique, où la réalité se confond avec le rêve. Thriller jungien? Suspense hitchcockien? Tour de force artistique? Montez à bord, le train de nuit vous attend...

Réalisé par Chris Lavis et Maciek Szczerbowski - 2007

PARADIGM (2013) - 3D Fractal Animated Short Film | HD by Chris D'Andrea

an experimental film in no language

PARADIGM is a 3D animated short film created by Christopher D'Andrea for his BFA senior project. Its a story between two fractal generated entities extremely diverse in their nature. As the two objects progress, they evolve and change in the world around them. Their ultimate interaction is not held back by their environment because finally, the pieces merge and collide.

The concept behind the film represents man-kinds untold story of its very near future. Here, the organic shape represents humanity, as we have grown from a single cell into an advanced space-faring species. The geometric object represents technology. When the two meet, it is up to the viewer to interpret whether technology will destroy or enhance us in the coming paradigm shift.

'I wanted the viewers to question where they stand on this matter. It's hard to imagine a world where man is completely merged with technology.. and yet again, it's even harder to imagine a world without it. Although this is my personal message in the film, I encourage everyone to walk away with their own interpretations.'

Enjoy :)

Mexican Oil and Drug Cartels: Cocaine & Crude (Full Length)

a report in English

Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News

VICE founder Suroosh Alvi travels to Mexico to see the effects of cartel oil theft firsthand.

Mexico’s notoriously violent drug cartels are diversifying. Besides trafficking narcotics, extorting businesses, and brutally murdering their rivals, cartels are now at work exploiting their country’s precious number one export: oil.

Every day as many as 10,000 barrels of crude oil are stolen from Mexico’s state-run oil company, Pemex, through precarious illegal taps, which are prone to deadly accidents. Pemex estimates that it loses $5 billion annually in stolen oil, some of which ends up being sold over the border in US gas stations. As police fight the thieves, and the cartels fight each other, the number of victims caught in the battle for the pipelines continues to climb.
