And then, i fell in love with its scenery, people, colors and so on. I decided to capture its beauty and stay more than i expected. Hope you enjoy my video.

DYLAN

a documentary in English

Based on a documentary theater piece, DYLAN truly rides the line of documentary and narrative genres. Performed with incredible honesty and dramatic skill, Becca Blackwell unforgettably portrays a young man exploring his identity as he finds himself immersed in a new community.

DIRECTOR'S STATEMENT:
I began the process of making this film nearly ten years ago when I wrote the script as part of a writer's workshop taught by Jessica Blank and Erik Jensen (The Exonerated). The workshop was specifically focused on documentary theater writing, which was a format I knew very little about but immediately fell in love with.

We were tasked to interview someone whose story seemed interesting, and through a very detailed and specific method would eventually edit these interviews into a documentary theater piece. After thinking for a bit, I decided to approach my friend Dylan Winn Garner, a friend whom I had known since childhood. As a child I had known Dylan as Emily, but had little bits of exposure to his transition which had occurred in the not too recent past. I reached out to Dylan who was willing to participate and we did a phone interview.

The interview lasted for over two hours, and we discussed just about every detail of his life from early childhood on. His friendships, his relationships, and his exploration of self-identity. After the interview was over, I transcribed every last detail - every time he cleared his throat or stuttered. This was a key part of the writing process and ultimately what I believe made the final product feel so real. After editing the interview down throughout the workshop, I completed the writing piece but didn't know what to do with it. I put it aside, but never quite forgot about it.

Nearly ten years later I decided I was ready to make something out of it. I pulled out the story and began working it into a script. I gave it a setting that I felt would be appropriate - a trip to Coney Island at dawn. I had always imagined that Dylan would actually be removing layers of clothing throughout the piece to signify the removal of emotional baggage needed in order to go through the process of self-discovery. Swimming was the perfect ending because it represented the freedom that Dylan had finally achieved. I also spoke with Dylan who gave me permission to film the piece and told me that he loved the idea of going swimming at the end because he was always drawn to the water.

Casting Dylan was going to be a challenge and I didn't really know where to begin. My first instinct was to cast a man in the role but was not sure if that was really the correct choice. Through a friend of a friend I was introduced to Becca Blackwell, an incredible transgender performer out of NYC. When speaking to Becca, we discussed casting the role and they told me that if there was one thing a man could never understand, it was what it was like to want to be a man. That statement resonated with me. Becca is a superb actor who took this role and performance very seriously.

I hope in watching this film the viewer can feel how real and honest this story is, and I hope that the message of self-discovery and acceptance will be embraced by all different communities.

** Please note that we do not mean to offend anyone by the use of the word "tranny" in the film. It was kept in the film to honor the authenticity and honesty of the interview with the real Dylan, who used it in the context that applied to him 10 years ago. However, we do not in any way support or promote the use of that word in any context.

Storming Spain's Razor-Wire Fence: Europe Or Die (Episode 1/4)

a report in English

Since 2000, more than 27,000 migrants and refugees have died attempting the perilous journey to Europe. With an unprecedented number of people breaking through its heavily barricaded borders in 2014, the EU continues to fortify its frontiers.

VICE News presents Europe or Die, a new four-part series that documents the efforts of those risking their lives to reach Europe, and the forces tasked to keep them out.

In episode one of our series, VICE News correspondent Milène Larsson travels to the border between Morocco and Spain, where West Africans in their thousands storm the razor-wire-clad fences. Many are beaten back by border police or illegally returned.

How to Use Drugs

a lecture in English

We’re still only at the dawn of learning how to use drugs properly – knowing what drugs we need and when we should take them. We look forward to a brighter future for drug use. If you like our films, take a look at our shop (we ship worldwide): https://goo.gl/AcvyK6

FURTHER READING

“It’s easy to have a pretty negative view of drugs: the news is always going on about police raids on drug dealers, kids tripping dangerously at raves, overdoses and rehab.
It goes without saying: things can go horrifically wrong around drugs. But our intense awareness of the negatives is in danger of creating a misleadingly narrow view of the subject. Drugs are – at best – serious, dignified, noble and important, and we need more of them in our lives....”

Telling Lies

a narrative film in English

Written and Directed by Simon Ellis (www.simonellisfilms.com)

The morning after the night before, a rapid spiral of disastrous telephone calls chart the certain ruin of young Phil's day as he attempts to fib his way out of one scrape after another. Told entirely in animated captions.

Audience Award (Hamburg International Short Film Festival 2001)
Audience Award (Bitfilm Festival, Hamburg 2001)

Featured on the DVD 'Cinema 16: British Short Films'

"Such a simple idea. Such a tremendous hoot, executed to perfection. Whether it's something as simple as changing a single word, or as involved as adding an unspoken thought, the dialogue and its accompanying text complement each other with hilarious effect. If this playful text-fest pops up at a film festival near you, I highly suggest checking it out"
(Film Threat)

"Nicely illustrated... a humorous and syntactically inventive animation"
(Resfest)

"The outstanding Telling Lies hits on the simple but blindingly effective idea of contrasting the words that people say with what they are actually thinking. Witty, insightful and very close to the bone. We never get to see the characters but after four minutes you know an awful lot about them. A short film that won't leave you feeling short changed"
(Bermuda International Film Festival)
