the Hard Problem of Consciousness

 

 

Consciousness is still a very difficult thing to understand, but we know it has something to do with the trillions of connections in our brains. Our Fractal brains. Because the grey matter has developed in a similar way as these visuals: very simple beginnings bring forth infinite complexity.

by Julius Horsthuis

music: "Ladakh" from Michael Stearns

 


HARING

 

 

Haring tells the tale of Diederik, a guy who makes the mistake of eating a herring right before a date. When he finds out his fishy breath destroys everything in its path, he does his best to get rid of the smell, while also trying to reach his date in time.

Haring was made with the collaboration from the Netherlands Film Fund, SNS Reaal and Pathé and was made for the 2014 UltraKort program. The film screened in front of Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy" in all Dutch Pathé cinemas.
