So many fun shots and poses in this self-directed video for Kit’s track “Where Does The Time Go.” Featuring choreography by contemporary dancer Ariel Clarke, Kit expresses her personal liberation from religious indoctrination and patriarchy through a whimsical Wes Anderson-esque aesthetic:

“Mind Mirror” by Meredith Hama-Brown

A paper man navigates a disorienting world in this intricate stop-motion by director and animator Meredith Hama-Brown. Shot on Super 8mm film, everything on screen is made entirely from paper (over 2000 hand-cut images). As Hama-Brown explains further:

“Although a highly visual piece, the film is meant to symbolize a feeling of time moving forward incessantly, and the anxiety that can come from this. At the core is the theme of mortality and how wondrous and terrifying it is all at once.”

Check out “Mind Mirror” above as well as some behind-the-scenes images below!

“Pocket” by Mishka Kornai & Zach Wechter (Mature)

A devastatingly realistic anti-coming-of-age story by directors Mishka Kornai and Zach Wechter (previously featured here). Designed specifically to be viewed on a smartphone with headphones, “Pocket” follows the year in the life of an American teen entirely from the perspective of his iPhone. While exploring the perils of adolescence isn’t exactly new, the combination of technology addiction and teenage sexual awakening is. As the directors state:

“For the majority of kids growing up today, their first experience with intimacy happens online, not in person, which represents a seismic shift in what it means to be a young person with a developing sexuality. The film is not seeking to make a moralistic judgement about Instagram or pornography, but when most kids are spending six hours a day in a space that includes this collision of soft porn and their yearbook, sexual objectification and commodification seems like a worrisome possibility.”
