I'm Keith Hernandez

a documentary in English

http://www.imkeithhernandez.com/
Part baseball documentary, part anti drug film, part socio-political satire, I’M KEITH HERNANDEZ utilizes a version of Hernandez life as a vehicle to discuss how male identity is shaped by TV/film, sports, advertising, and pornography. By examining the aforementioned types of media in conjunction with Lacan’s “Mirror Theory”, a clearer picture of masculinity emerges. As part of this discourse, the physical attribute of the mustache is explored as a symbol of male virility. Other topics include the Iran/Contra Affair and the resulting “Crack Explosion”, celebrity obsessed culture, and the subtleties of children’s television programming.

Timelapse - Porto In Motion

a documentary in no language

PT:
41° 9′ 0″ N, 8° 36′ 40″ W - O Porto é uma cidade que me fascina e motiva para o registo de fotografia e em especial do timelapse. Há cerca de 6 meses atrás, produzi o timelapse "O'Porto" visivel em https://vimeo.com/106545628. Logo após a sua publicação fiquei com a sensação de que era preciso mais. Era necessário ir a locais onde normalmente não se vai. Era necessário fotografar dos seus pontos mais altos, conseguindo com isso uma perspectiva diferente. Pese embora alguns contratempos, consegui terminar este trabalho. Para a concretização deste video, foi necessário registar cerca de 10420 fotografias, percorrer algumas ruas da cidade de metro em metro, subir a edificios altos quer por elevador, quer pelas escadas, carregar bastante equipamento (nomeadamente máquinas fotograficas e diversas objectivas) o Stage One e Stage R. Foi necessário viver alguns momentos hilariantes, outros nem por isso...houve oportunidade para falar com pessoas que mesmo estando nesses espaços, nunca tinham "olhado" para a cidade a partir desses locais... mas mesmo depois de tudo isto o mais importante é o resultado final. E esse resultado está aqui disponivel para quem gosta de ver o tempo e os momentos numa perspectiva diferente. Como alguém que muito prezo dizia há alguns dias atrás, "...o tempo somos nós que o fazemos...". Aqui fica o "meu tempo" dedicado ao Porto.

41° 9′ 0″ N, 8° 36′ 40″ W - Oporto is a city that fascinates and motivates me for photo recording and especially the timelapse. About 6 months ago, I produced the timelapse "O'Porto" available in https://vimeo.com/106545628. Immediately after its publication I got the feeling that more was needed. I must go to places where people usually do not go there. It was necessary shoot their highest points, achieving with this a different perspective. Despite some setbacks, I managed to finish this job. To achieve this video, it was necessary register about 10,420 photos, walk along some streets of the city subway by subway, climb the high buildings either by lift or stairs, carry a lot of equipment (including photographic machines and several lenses), the Stage One e Stage R. It was necessary to live some hilarious moments, others not so funny at all... I had the opportunity to talk to people that even though in these spaces, never had "looked" to the city from these places... but even after all this the most important is the final result. And this result is available here for those who like to watch the time and moments from a different perspective. As someone that I value said a few days ago, "Here is" my time "dedicated to Oporto."

Changeover is the story of Bill Frankhouser, a life-long projectionist, who owns a drive-in theater with his wife Barb in rural Pennsylvania. Bill and Barb are caught in the middle of a transition in their trade. In 2014 it will be nearly impossible to get a first run feature film on 35mm print. The film industry’s switch to digital projection means that thousands of independent theaters will have to replace their film projectors with new, expensive digital ones. Before shutting the machines down forever, Bill gathers his friends to watch one last night of film presentation. He muses about what the change will mean to him, his business, and his community, and he bids an emotional farewell to the machines that have been with him for his entire career.

Corruption, Cocaine and Murder in Trinidad

a report in English

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

Around midnight on May 3, Dana Seetahal, a prominent attorney and former senator in Trinidad and Tobago, had just left a casino in the capital of Port of Spain when her vehicle was stopped by another car blocking the road. A van pulled up alongside and let loose a burst of gunfire, killing her in a well orchestrated hit.

Her murder was one of approximately 170 that have occurred in the Caribbean nation so far this year, putting it on course for one of the highest murder rates in the world. The country saw only 93 murders in 1999. Last year, there were 407.

VICE News visited the slums of Port of Spain and spoke with police, activists, community leaders, and gangsters to understand the country's decade-plus spike in killings. Many of the murders are attributed to ruthless and politically connected street gangs who control territories that are sometimes no larger than a city block. The gangs fight over lucrative government contracts meant to provide social services and combat unemployment.

But gang violence is merely a symptom of a bigger problem. Trinidad has become an important stop for drugs headed to West Africa and the United States. Many observers point to "the big fish" — the nameless political and business elites who are behind drug trafficking and the culture of endemic corruption and murder that come with it. They are accused of turning a country rich in oil and gas deposits into their own personal narco-state, fostering impunity through a web of bribes and murders. Unlike the profits from the energy industry, however, this phenomenon trickles all the way down to the street level.

Fifty People, One Question: Brooklyn

a documentary in English

Once upon a time, we awoke with a new question on our mind. We didn't quite know what the buzz and bustle of a Brooklyn afternoon would bring. In search of nothing more than some fresh answers, we found a few dreams instead.

It's a simple question and the answers can lead us anywhere. So go ahead, ask yourself…

Visit http://fiftypeopleonequestion.com/locations/3-brooklyn-ny and post your response.

We also asked this question in London - http://vimeo.com/2834087
