“FILTERFACE” by Will & Carly

A satirical look at the negative effects of social media on young people by London-based directors Will & Carly (previously featured here). The disturbing trend to go under the knife to make flawless filtered selfies a reality has actually been labelled as a new mental illness called “Snapchat Dysmorphia.” FILTERFACE: Double Tap To Like was shot in an ex-mental health institute in North London and explores themes of self-obsession and addiction to perfection through a choreographed performance by Isabella Mahmoud and assistant choreographer Ellie Gordon. As Will & Carly state: “We really wanted to ring an alarm bell with this film and draw attention to the bizarre cultural obsession with AR filters that is hurting our women and girls in more ways than one.”

Beige-À-Coeur – “Brumaire”

Two roommates teeter on the edge of mundanity and madness in this wonderfully bizarre video for Montréal band Beige-À-Coeur. Directed by Ophélie Thiebault, “Brumaire” shifts abruptly between a seemingly innocent habit and its brutal consequences:

“The aim is to immerse the spectator in a state of trance, similar to that of a shaman performing a rite, the spectator will be transported into an unreal universe and will nevertheless take up the themes of our current society. The staging will be oriented towards a certain artificiality while keeping the dark, almost frightening characters.”

Premiere: “Tears” by Jonathan Nelson

A unique collaboration from New York City-based director Jonathan Nelson and Monticello Park for the Campfire Poetry series. Bringing artists of different disciplines together within the framework of a classic poem, the project coalesces into an original composition that speaks to how certain emotions and themes transcend generations as well as how the act of passing something on, in the vein of campfire storytelling, can create new modes of expression and understanding.

For this instalment, Nelson is joined by dancer/choreographer Chalvar Monteiro as they explore a poem by Walt Whitman. Drawn to depictions of altered states of consciousness on film, Nelson takes on the blank canvas that is the spectrum of consciousness when we are in or around sleep to capture a man struggling with his innermost fears and insecurities:

“I feel lucky that the Campfire Poetry series from Monticello Park enabled me to use and explore dance as a dream state. I’ve always associated the art form with an ability to tap into a peculiar state of consciousness. It’s simultaneously experiential and performative: it feels good to the person doing it and it looks good (hopefully!) to whoever is watching. It’s the melding of performer and audience that makes dance particularly interesting, and when employed as a language to communicate the ineffable feeling of dreaming, there’s hardly a more beautiful form of expression.”

“The Fell Runner” by Alex Simpson & Phillip Suddick

A nice portrait of fell runner Calum from Cumbria by London-based directors Phillip Suddick and Alex Simpson (previously featured here).

While considered a new school fell runner, Calum shares his relatively old fashioned reasons for doing what he does.

Pillow Queens – “Brothers”

Two friends stumble upon a device that freezes time in this lovely video by director Kate Dolan for Pillow Queens’ track “Brothers.” While initially using their newfound power for fun, they soon risk losing one another as it drives them apart:

“The lyrics in the verses show quick snapshots of the aftermath from a loss of a friend within a very tight knit group. An element of fear runs through the song as this sudden death makes you look around your group and feel terrified of the chances of another. It touches on a shared grief which drives you to hold dear the memories and moments you have with each other. While this song can be considered one about mourning, it’s ultimately about the intense love you have for your chosen family.”
