In this alternately absurd and poignant provocation, liquidity is metaphor, linking financial malfeasance to environmental disaster through the central character of financial advisor-turned-mixed martial artist Jacob Wood. As DIY CGI effects entertain the screen, militant meteorologists, shock-proof portfolios, cloud systems and Bruce Lee’s mantra “be like water, my friend” intervene to reveal a cosmology of interlocking ideological systems.
Shorts / 75 minsIn this collection of exuberant and wildly imaginative short works, global politics, mythologies and simple sensual encounters are the laboratories for playful visual and aural experimentation. Puns, image-rhymes, fabulous logic and transcendent moments of stillness are the ways through which these artists explore everything from the “cloud” to financial meltdowns to filmmaking itself.
