SCREENING NIGHT 3
Across the Ocean
Music Video (Korea) - Screening 2nd November - Self-rated G content guideNominated for: Best Music Video
The ocean — both wild and calm, dangerous and beautiful — is made up of majesty and mystery, and it is indeed a force of nature we stood in awe. While we may appear very small to such greatness of the ocean, human endeavors and emotions can be powerful like the ocean. Beyond the horizon of the sea, we may have someone dear to one's heart. Especially during this stressful year, it's important to reflect on all of the kinship, blessings, and emotions you miss. So I wrote this piece of music and made this clip, dedicating it to all the people who love the ocean and miss their loved ones who may be missing you across the ocean.
Music Video (Australia) - Screening 2nd November - Self-Rated G content guideNominated for: Best Music Video
To what extent do we define ourselves and others by the things we do?
'Plastic' is a new music video which explores these questions through the story of a break down in a relationship resulting in a profound moment of purpose. The video is a real and surreal story of love, loss and construction, which counterpoints the minimalist electronic music of Micra.
This work is a collision of emotionally rich psychological drama and cerebral construction, think 'Before Sunrise' meets ‘Inception'.
Riot in the Meadow

Riot in the Meadow is a poetic documentary about the life of artist Vicky Hawkins, former assistant to Iconic 1960s fine artist Bridget Riley.

Riot in the Meadow is the name of a poem and also the title Vicky borrowed for her latest art exhibition. It incorporates the vibrant colours she uses in her work, using "A riot of colour" but also Vicky explains how the meaning of the poem encapsulates her philosophy of life, love and death.

Impending divorce, job loss, substance abuse, and a mid-life crisis are all factors that can cause him to go off the rails. In addition, the sudden death of his father forces him to return home to Anishinaabe territory, a place he has tried to avoid since his youth.
Nevertheless, Mathieu agrees to go and deposit his father's ashes in the heart of their ancestral territory and wishes to find himself at the same time.
The break away from the city promises to be a nice getaway until Mathieu realizes that he is now the prey of an evil creature known as the Wendigo. Mathieu's pilgrimage quickly becomes an unimaginable nightmare that will change him forever. Like it or not, our vices always catch up with us eventually.
