films4peace 2013: Anthony Goicolea

an experimental film in no language

Anthony Goicolea describes his film:

"I have often felt that there are many rituals and traditions embedded in our various cultures that have lost their meaning and now merely serve as scripts for people to follow and act out without thinking of their true meanings or origins. Many children’s rhymes and songs, polite dinner customs, or party games derive from darker moments in history such as plague, famine, and war.

Growing up the son of Cuban parents, my brothers and I always had piñatas at our birthdays. Usually they took the shape of some sort of crude but cute animal effigy that ended up beaten to smithereens as rioting children stumbled over each other in a mad dash for the sugary spoils of war that spilled out like guts before them.
In my film for films4peace I wanted to dissect this sacrificial custom, the mechanics behind group dynamics, as well as the destruction that comes from greed. A life-sized, anatomically correct, sculpted horse in the guise of a piñata is beaten and destroyed until the multiple, identically clad, kids who flog it like monks banging church bells or a gong, surrender to the regret of the destruction they have wrought."

Rubber Johnny by Chris Cunningham & Aphex Twin (1080p HD)

an experimental film in English

Rubber Johnny by Chris Cunningham & Aphex Twin (1080p HD)
Info from Wikipedia:
The concept for Rubber Johnny came from Cunningham's imagining a raver morphing as he danced. The idea evolved to the present film, in which Johnny (played by Cunningham) is an isolated deformed (possibly hydrocephalic) teenager kept on a wheelchair and locked in a dark basement with his chihuahua. The film was originally intended to be a 30-second TV commercial for the Aphex Twin album drukqs, using the track "afx237 v7". However, Cunningham grew to like the concept more and more and decided to expand the concept into a greater length (the original commercial remains in the film in an altered form.) The film was shot partially in infrared night vision on digital video. The film's music is "afx237 v7 (w19rhbasement remix)", a remix made by Cunningham; the credits music is "gwarek2", also from drukqs.
