Le haricot bleu (english subtitles)

an experimental film in French

Le haricot bleu est une merveille dans la nature.
La profondeur et l'intensité de sa couleur me le rendirent comme ce champignon vénéneux qui est d'autant plus mortel qu'il est attirant.
Avoir des amis est une merveille dans la vie.
Quoi de plus naturel que de partager les petites joies avec ceux qu'on aime.
Les vrais amis vont au bout de leur dévouement ; c'est grâce à eux que je sus que le haricot bleu était délicieux et comestible !

The blue bean is a wonder of nature.
The depth and intensity of its colour makes this poisonous mushroom all the more deadly since it is attractive.
Having friends is a wonder in life.
What more natural than to share the small joys with those we love.
True friends are after their devotion; it is through them that I knew that the blue bean was delicious and edible!

Internetul se închide

a documentary in Romanian

"Trăim în feudalism digital".
De ce există copyright? Pe cine afectează pirateria? De ce mă simt ca un infractor atunci când stau pe net?

Cultura a devenit colaborativă iar creativitatea defineşte noua generaţie. Avem ceva foarte important de apărat: internetul, locul în care inovarea şi cunoasterea (încă) mai circulă libere. Accesul liber la informaţii a deschis poarta către cel mai comun mijloc al creativităţii: remix-ul. Ce ar trebui sa apere copyright-ul în aceste vremuri schimbătoare? Este copierea la fel de gravă ca şi furtul propriu-zis? Nu există o alta cale? E posibil să fie...

Codfish & Cyanide | Kabeljau mit Zyankali

a narrative film in German


She can’t believe it when he arrives at the restaurant looking squalid, shabby and unwilling to explain himself. The truth sounds way too absurd and being a notorious liar, he can’t risk anything. Cornered, he tells her an intricate story and expects everything – except her actual reaction.
Two persons, one room, a conflict.

"This is delicious and achievable storytelling. A lesson or all aspiring filmmakers who wish to make a contained short and don’t know how to go about doing so." (onesmallwindow.com)

"I wouldn’t be lying if the situation and the German language reminded me of some scenes from Quentin Tarantino‘s Inglorious Basterds, the depth and intensity of the conversations as well as the absurdity of the entire setting." (filmshortage.com)

"Gesslbauer manages to weave an entertaining and fully realized tale all within the confines of one location." (cinemaaxis.com)
