Two videos and two people that use art for similar reasons but with completely different approaches.

The Beach Captain
Mark Kologi has collected and sold literally millions of forgotten personal photos of complete strangers.
Interesting character with a unique perspective. I wish it was less stylized, it feels like there was an invisible wall between the subject and the viewer.
Interesting subject. The Morris style almost seems to be fighting with the subject matter.
Vice is giving us access to worlds and point of views rarely seen anywhere else. Their expose on Karachi was dangerous and raw. This video is not as dangerous but the access is still amazing.
If You’ve Never Been to Karachi, You’ve Never Been Killed
This is incredible ballsy journalism. Mingling with some of the most dangerous people on this planet in one of the craziest, most violent cities with an educated, skeptical commentary to round it off. The top video is part one of 5. The rest are below.
This video from start to finish will make you happy. People chasing after their dreams is always a strong story but when it is a little boy building his own arcade out of cardboard, you have reached some type of nirvana in storytelling.
What a lovely way to tell a story!
So well done.
Don’t know why but post-apocalyptic areas are always fascinating.
I’ve stopped drinking out of plastic bottles. This is a good reminder to me on why that is a good choice.
There is a videoblog of Chris’ journey to midway.
This is an incredible series. These were my favorites:
Fightclub in the Silicon Valley.
Portraits of the men that volunteer to patrol the borders. Controversial but they need to be heard.
California is a Place website where you will find more great content.
This film gives a hard hitting, gritty insight into the life of 14 year old Kerry. Kerry has built herself a reputation and is regarded as one of the ‘popular’ girls at school. Sleeping with any boy who makes advances, drinking and smoking are common activities to Kerry all because she has no one at home to care for her, causing her to yearn attention from anyone, no matter how bad it is.
We need more films like this.
