EN - Dear Steve is a lyrical portrait of the laptop; the pedestrian icon of 'the new spirit of capitalism'. We witness the ruthless, smooth dismantling of a brand-new MacBook Pro: an act of literally turning inside-out the digital work station that controls our daily lives. Don’t try this at home…

Flemish Artists take over VIDEOEX

Disorient by Florence Aigner and Laurent Van Lancker received the Main Prize at VIDEOEX, the International Experimental Film & Video Festival in Zürich (21 – 29 May). Because We Are Visual by another helmers' duo, Olivia Rochette and Gerard-Jan Claes, was given an Honourable Mention by the Jury.

Still from festival winner DisorientThe International Jury, consisting of Maria Palacios Cruz (BE), Seppo Renvall (FIN) en Georges Salameh (GR) decided to share the Main Prize between two ‘brave’ films which ‘experiment with storytelling and with the absence of images. Both films share a sense of internal rhythm and pacing, as well as a strong correspondence between the chosen formal strategies and the subject matter that is being dealt with.’ Because We Are Visual also received praise from the jury for its ‘fragile beauty, ‘highly complex editing’ and ‘the two young filmmakers’ ambition.’
