A sense of comfort has a lot to do with a specific location. Man and nature often ruffle each other’s feathers, but sometimes unexpected harmony occurs.

The Tiger’s Mind, Beatrice Gibson (UK 2012 | 23:00 min)
A conceptual detective film against the backdrop of a remote, modernist villa. Six characters, the set, the music, the foley, the special effects, the narrator and the writer fight to gain control of the plot.

Heather’s Dream, Stefanie Schneider (Germany 2012 | 15:08 min)
Surreal events shot using Polaroids and Super-8 film. A doctor (Udo Kier) receives Heather in his outdoor treatment room in the desert where he is helped by the apparition of a nurse.

Harvest, Chaja Hartog (Netherlands 2012 | 10:04 min)
An odd event in an olive grove: one of the trees starts a revolt. As the spontaneous protest spreads, a police squad rallies through the landscape in an attempt to quell the unrest. Inspired by ancient olive harvesting methods in which aggression and cultivation come together.

Nature House INC., Nick Jordan (UK 2013 | 06:12 min)

Unboxing Eden, Neozoon (Germany 2013 | 04:54 min)

She That Comes From The Green Forest, On A Tuesday, Silvia Martes (Netherlands 2013 | 07:07 min)
The atmosphere of this personal collage reflects the literal translation of Silvia Martes’ name in the title. Memories, rituals and objects effortlessly merge and are inspected, ordered and re-arranged.

How do you manage to survive the merciless climate in Siberia where man and nature are at odds with one another? What seems extreme to us proves to be an ordinary reality.
