Prophet's Dilemma

Every act of rebellion expresses a nostalgia for innocence and an appeal to the essence of being.

Loneliness and the relationship between man and nature.

A alma do osso is an experimental documentary about  Domingos Albino Ferreira (also known as Dominguinhos da Pedra), a 71-year-old man who has lived alone for 41 years in caves in the countryside region of Itambé do Mato Dentro, Minas Gerais (Brazil). He survives on a meagre pension from the Brazilian government.

It starts with an epigraph by Guimarães Rosa: ‘Loneliness is too much for ourselves’. There are no dialogues or interviews in this documentary, and almost no speech. Practically all the information we receive comes from the images and sounds that characterize the countryside: beautiful landscapes of green hills and the sea, the man’s cave and the sounds of nature.

The end of the journey is just the beginnings.

A little pilgrim carrying a heavy weight. A long path leading from a deep, dark forest to a boundless, radiant valley. Along the way, four mysterious characters.

Who is that pilgrim, and where is he going? Is that path just a connection between two physical places or rather a metaphor of a personal journey? And those characters, who are they, really? Are they real or are they avatars of supreme beings? Follow serene but determined Hoblio in his quest for enlightenment and spiritual freedom.

Director: Louis Fox
Producer: Louis Fox, Jonah Sachs
Genre: Animation / Short
Country: United States
Language: English / CN / DE / FR / ES / PT / IT / RU / EN subtitles

A four-minute animation that spoofs the Matrix films and highlights the problems caused by factory farming and industrial agricultural practices.

The films are humorous and creative satires that use pop culture and entertainment to educate viewers about the food they eat and where it comes from. All the films feature three superhero farm animals including Leo, the young pig who wonders if he is “the one”, Chickity, the feathered family farm defender, and Moopheus, the trench-coat-clad cow with a passion for green pastures as they expose the problems with factory farming while making the world safe for sustainable family farms.

It was made by the green messaging firm Free Range Studios and Sustainable Table in 2003 as a commissioned project for GRACE Communications Foundation, and two sequels were released in 2006, titled The Meatrix II: Revolting, and The Meatrix II ½.
