Composition
The Film You Are About to See

The Film You Are About to See

Almost all films are preceded by a disclaimer. There is a deeply embedded fear of being misunderstood—and all the attendant legal consequences. But these attempts at self-protection undermine the essence of film as a limitless imagination machine.
Dreams About Putin

Dreams About Putin

In this essay about the subconscious, the nightmares and hopes of many Russians, a portrayal of dreams they share on social media produces a disturbing, sometimes dryly comic film about the current state of Russian society.
I Would Like to Rage

I Would Like to Rage

Online, anger easily becomes a grotesque expression of male aggression, captured in memes and GIFs. In a pointed and humorous “desktop documentary,” Chloé Galibert-Laîné investigates how they can express this emotion authentically.
Makeover Movie

Makeover Movie

A confrontational but lighthearted essay looking at makeovers in Hollywood. Filmmaker Sue Ding and her childhood girlfriends analyze countless clips from the films they grew up with. Was the ugly duckling that became a swan as innocent as she seemed?
Paradocs
Paradocs showcases the best in experimental documentary art of the moment.
