    Lasse always longed to settle there one day, along with Ari, a good friend bound to a wheelchair. In time, Lasses’s travels have lost their youthful innocence. He decides to go on one last great journey with Ari. Meanwhile Ari gets in touch with someone who abruptly changes the perspective on his own destiny for the worse.

Director’s Bio                                                                                                                         

Tim Baumann

He is not a professional filmmaker. He studied Computer Science at Humboldt-University in Berlin. Valkaama was produced as part of my thesis paper on Open Source Movies and Open Source Movie business models. He made the movie in order to understand the process of film production and because of the lack of truly free feature movies. With truly free He means movies which are released under CC-by or CC-by-sa (as Valkaama). Over-all it took 3 years from idea to realization.

     Elephants Dream


      Director Bassam Burdali


     

 

    Synopsis                                       

    Elephants Dream is the story of two strange
    characters exploring a capricious and seemingly infinite machine. The elder,
    Proog, acts as a tour-guide and protector, happily showing off the sights and
    dangers of the machine to his initially curious but increasingly skeptical
    protege Emo. As their journey unfolds we discover signs that the machine is not
    all Proog thinks it is, and his guiding takes on a more desperate aspect.

    Sita Sings the Blues

    Director Nina Paley

    USA, 2008, 82 min

 

    Synopsis                                       

    Sita is a goddess separated from her beloved Lord and husband Rama. Nina is an animator whose husband moves to India, then dumps her by email. Three hilarious shadow puppets narrate both ancient tragedy and modern comedy in this beautifully animated interpretation of the Indian epic Ramayana. Set to the 1920’s jazz vocals of Annette Hanshaw, Sita Sings the Blues earns its tagline as "the Greatest Break-Up Story Ever Told."

Nina Paley

Nina Paley (b. 1968, USA) is a longtime veteran of syndicated comic strips, creating "Fluff" (Universal Press Syndicate), "The Hots" (King Features), and her own alternative weekly "Nina’s Adventures."

Nina teaches at Parsons School of Design in Manhattan and is a 2006 Guggenheim Fellow.
