Seven young women. A mansion perched on a Cycladic rock. A series of lessons on discipline, desire, discovery, and disappearance. A melancholy, inescapable cycle on the brink of womanhood – infinitely.
Century (Country: US; Year: 2012; Director: Kevin Jerome Everson; Stars: Buick Century)
Filmed in Charlottesville, Virginia, and starring a General Motors automobile – the titular brown Buick Century – meeting its fate.
Datamosh (Year: 2011; Director: Yung Jake; Writer: Yung Jake)
A contemporary rap video that explores the glitchy video art trend "datamoshing". All geeked up, Yung Jake glitches out your computer and celebrates nerdiness and getting money.
Iyeza (Country: South Africa; Year: 2012; Director: Kudzanai Chiurai)
An allegory of the Last Supper depicting the establishment of a new nation-state, Kudzanai Chiurai's Iyeza explores the African condition by juxtaposing the past and the present of a continent in the grip of violent civil wars.

Chimpanzees, our closest relatives, like to watch television. What would a film made expressly for chimps look like? Created with a primatologist and actors in chimp suits, a primate drama is presented to chimpanzees at the Edinburgh Zoo.
Reindeer (Country: UK, Finland; Year: 2011; Director: Eva Weber)
Portrait of reindeer herding in Lapland.
Until The Quiet Comes (Country: US; Year: 2013; Director: Kahlil Joseph; Writer: Kahlil Joseph; Stars: Solomon Gibbs, Storyboard P., Flying Lotus)
