“THE MESSENGERS” Iván Argote
Espagne, France | 2015 | 31’
(Dehors la Danse)
Gaby and Blaine are two young americans with a special political and intellectual background, wandering in the middle of two small “historical” towns, one in Colombia (Mompox) and the other one in the south of Spain (Arcos de la Frontera). History, politics, voices, folklore, landscapes and architectures, creates a complex atmosphere for this conversation that balances in between philosophical and personal statements. The friction in between colonisation and post- colonisation, cultural influences, tradition and contemporary culture, creates an oneiric narrative in which Gaby and Blaine seem to be lost, revealing an image of our own fragility as political and ethical entities.

“X-VILLE” Jordi Colomer
Espagne, France | 2015 | 23’
At the beginning of ‘X-VILLE’ a young woman tells us: “Our time is a time of utopias. There are many: the American ‘Way of Life’, Communism or Human Rights. They all have the capacity to mobilize the masses”. The film is inspired by various texts by philosopher and utopian architect Yona Friedman, specifically by his book, ‘Realizable Utopias’ (1974), a work that promotes alternative forms of organizing big cities, as collective answers to a dissatisfaction. Colomer’s film is constructed through collective situations, recreating images of alternative ways of organisation for the Metropolis.
