EN - The acceleration and abstraction of trading (from commodities to financial products to sets of data) here takes a major leap as we examine algorithmic trading and the people who perform this type of work. In the end, nothing gets explained and we remain on the outside looking in. Algorithm is an essay impression of a specific area of high finance, set high in the sky in futuristic buildings populated by sharply-dressed characters speaking a mysterious language.

Sequenza, an experimental short film by Manon de Boer en George Van Dam is selected for the parallel programme ‘La java de la source’ at FIDMarseille (1-7 July), Marseille’s International Film Festival which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year. Fanny Zaman’s upcoming film Carpets is also one of 10 participating projects at FIDLab, the festival’s co-production platform.
Sequenza found its way into one of the parallel sections at FIDMarseille, whith ‘La java de la source’ focusing on the theme of sound. For their 14-minute experimental film project, Manon de Boer and George Van Dam took Sequenza VIII for solo violin by composer Luciano Berio as a starting point.
