Too big to fail.

The American Dream is a animated film that shows the scams by the most basic elements of government system. How money is created? How banking works? Why did housing prices skyrocket and then plunge? What the Federal Reserve System is and how it affects the every single day? The film takes an entertaining but hard hitting look at how the problems we have today are nothing new, and why leaders throughout our history have warned us and fought against the current type of financial system.

A story about the fire at the heart of suffering.

I, Pet Goat II is an animated surreal, sociopolitical motivated short film brimming with silent messages, conspiracy allusions and cryptic esoteric symbolism. While the movie has no dialog, each symbol tells a piece of a story that covers the fields of history, politics, war, occultism and spirituality. The movie explores the common ground that underlies many spiritual and philosophical traditions in a lyrical form.

Chronos (1985)

Posted in Abstract Film, Art House Film, Cinéma Vérité, Documentary, Philosophy, Pure Cinema, World Cinema with tags , , , , , , , , , on September 22, 2012 by SiNgUlIbRiUm

Director: Ron Fricke
Producer: Mark Magidson
Genre: Documentary / World Cinema
Country: United States
Language: English / None

Chronos is 42 minutes long and has no actors or dialog. The soundtrack consists of a single continuous piece by composer Michael Stearns. Filmed in dozens of locations on five continents, the film relates to the concept of time passing on different scales – the bulk of the film covers the history of civilization, from pre-history to Egypt to Rome to Late Antiquity to the rise of Western Europe in the Middle Ages to the Renaissance to the modern era. It centers on European themes but not exclusively. Other time scales include the passing of seasons, and the passing of night and day, and the passing shadows of the sun in an afternoon to the passing of people on the street. These themes are intermingled with symbolic meaning.
