Far from the world, close to the heart.
A short film by Robin Risser.
Sometimes it stretches a little far but poignant nevertheless. I miss NYC!
Saw this at Full Frame Film Festival. Wonderful portrait of a man whose music I admire more than anybody else’s. It wasn’t the standard documentary on an artist where the film is dedicated in making the subject look grander than they are. The Scott Hicks film is quite intimate, I never realized Glass was a closet Buddhist (he denies it). The filmmaker and the artist doing bring a certain humility to their tasks. Both practice their art because it intrigues them.
To the first time animator who created this: I wish it went on for longer, I was hooked. Watch it (Thanks for the submission)
Update: We have featured some of this filmmaker’s work before.
Trailer for the new Errol Morris documentary on Abu Ghraib prison is riveting. BTW, as some of you might know, we have a category dedicated to the Errol Morris documentary style: recreations, meditative music, eloquent interviewees and detective work disguised as film research.
The BAFTA winning animated film by animator Richard Williams (Who Framed Roger Rabbit‘s animation director). This was his first film and is a wordless engima of philosophical musings. Reminiscent of the 1950s modern animation of UPA.

What if we started to see the material worlds of domestic settings as wild places? Is there a potential for the exotic and uncanny in the inconspicuously mundane?
The film is made up of three excursions in three homes from three countries (Körsbärsvägen, Sweden; La Casa di Sara, Italy; Kostonniemi, Finland) accompanied by a soundtrack realized just like the images: snippets recorded on location are decomposed and mixed together.
