Runtime: 1 hour 29 mins
Language: English
Screening: Asian Premiere

WORD ON THE STREET

"Endlessly fascinating and engaging...It's probably the best documentary you'll see all year...I'll be stunned if this doesn't end up on the Oscar doc short-list."
Huffington Post

"Whatever Sundance is, it has fine documentaries. 'Google and the World Brain'. A whip-smart examination of the pros and cons of Google's desire to digitize every book on Earth."
Los Angeles Times

"The message of this beautifully crafted film is that the Internet is exactly half of what you think it is… 'Google and the World Brain' is a masterful documentary. It will undoubtedly have an effect on anyone who sees it."
Indiewire

SYNOPSIS

The story of the most ambitious project ever conceived on the Internet, and the people who tried to stop it. In 1937 HG Wells predicted the creation of the "World Brain", a giant global library that contained all human knowledge which would lead to a new form of higher intelligence. Seventy years later the realisation of that dream was underway, as Google scanned millions and millions of books for its Google Books website. But over half those books were still in copyright, and authors across the world launched a campaign to stop them, climaxing in a New York courtroom in 2011. A film about the dreams, dilemmas and dangers of the Internet, set in spectacular locations in China, USA, Europe and Latin America.

FILM INFORMATION

Runtime: 1 hour 32 mins
Language: English
Screening: Asian Premiere

WORD ON THE STREET

"This alternately amusing and heartbreaking documentary coherently chronicles the endles process of rebuilding Ground Zero."
Hollywood Reporter

"A documentary that features forthright interviews with major players and gives a good sense of the infighting and pettiness without getting bogged down in it."
New York Times

"A fascinating portrait of municipal and private interests trying to make headway in the charged atmosphere of devastating personal loss and wounded national pride."
Los Angeles Times

Rotten Tomatoes (100% Rating)

SYNOPSIS

The rebuilding of ground zero is one of the most architecturally, politically, and emotionally complex urban renewal projects in American history. 16 Acres is the story of how and why this historic project got built. At the heart of the story is the dramatic tension between noblest intentions, the desire of everyone involved to "get it right," and the politics, hubris, ego and ideology that is the bedrock of New York City. With inside access to the project and key players, 16 Acres tells the story behind the headlines and follows the dramatic rush to complete the memorial in time.

Movies were shot, edited and projected using photochemical film. But over the last two decades a digital process has emerged to challenge photochemical filmmaking.

Side By Side, a new documentary produced by Keanu Reeves, takes an in-depth look at this revolution. Through interviews with directors, cinematographers, film students, producers, technologists, editors, and exhibitors, Side By Side examines all aspects of filmmaking - from capture to edit, visual effects to color correction, distribution to archive. At this moment when digital and photochemical filmmaking coexist, Side By Side explores what has been gained, what is lost, and what the future might bring.

MARINA ABRAMOVIC: THE ARTIST IS PRESENT (R21)
X
FILM INFORMATION

Director: Matthew Akers, Jeff Dupre
Subject: Art, Performance Art, Museum Culture
Runtime: 1 hour 45 mins
Language: English
Screening: Singapore Premiere

WORD ON THE STREET

"An exhilarating, elegantly executed film that holds a mirror up to the art world, its protagonists and its devotees, forcing us to question the whole circus."
Guardian

"Abramovic is nothing less than magnetic."
Little White Lies

Rotten Tomatoes (95% Rating)

SYNOPSIS

Seductive, fearless, and outrageous, Marina Abramović has been redefining what art is for nearly 40 years. Using her own body as a vehicle, pushing herself beyond her limits - and at times risking her life in the process – she creates performances that challenge, shock, and move us.

Marina Abramovic: The Artist Is Present follows the artist as she prepares for what may be the most important moment of her life: a major new retrospective of her work, taking place at The Museum of Modern Art. To be given a retrospective at one of the world's premier museums is the most exhilarating sort of milestone. For Marina, it is far more: it is the chance to finally silence the question she has been hearing over and over again for four decades: “But why is this art?”

Their international achievements cover the spectrum – industrial, product, and graphic design, interiors, and beyond. 50 years ago Massimo "imported" the Helvetica typeface to the US; 40 years ago his famous NYC Subway map debuted.

FILM INFORMATION

WORD ON THE STREET

"The doc is wonderful…
The film is largely about the very encouraging (for me) reaction to our present situation. To think about encouraging happy accidents. To create common spaces. To find less disruptive ways of getting around. To bring us back together
David Byrne

SYNOPSIS

50 % of the world‘s population lives in urban areas. By 2050 this will increase to 80%. Life in a mega city is both enchanting and problematic. Today we face peak oil, climate change, loneliness and severe health issues due to our way of life. But why? For 40 years the Danish architect Jan Gehl has systematically studied human behavior in cities. His starting point was an interest in people, more than buildings - in what he called Life Between Buildings. He has documented how modern cities repel human interaction, and argues that we can build cities in a way, which takes human needs for inclusion and intimacy into account. The Human Scale questions our assumptions about modernity, exploring what happens when we put people into the center of our equations.

Rotten Tomatoes (94% Rating)

"Brief Encounters" is a smart, well-constructed documentary that will enthrall Crewdson fans.
Boston Globe

Captured by a Camera, a Poetry of Lost and Missed Connections
New York Times

"A brilliant new documentary about the work of one of America‘s greatest living photographers."
Flush Magazine (UK)

More reviews

SYNOPSIS

An acclaimed photographer with the eye of a filmmaker, Gregory Crewdson has created some of the most gorgeously haunting pictures in the history of the medium. His meticulously composed, large-scale images are stunning narratives of small-town American life - moviescapes crystallized into a single frame. While the photographers are staged with crews that rival many feature film productions, Crewdson takes inspiration as much from his own dreams and fantasies as the world of Alfred Hitchcock, David Lynch, Edward Hopper and Diane Arbus. Crewdson‘s imagery has also infiltrated the pop culture landscape - including his inimitable Six Feet Under ads and Yo La Tengo album art. Shot over a decade with unprecedented access, Gregory Crewdson: Brief Encounters beautifully bares the artist‘s process - and it‘s as mesmerizing and riveting as the images themselves.

The Naked Brand is a story about how corporations can help save the planet one small step at a time. It's an introduction to a bright new future where companies tell the truth and work hard to create better products and a better planet.

Corporations have incredible influence on the world we live in and that's given them free reign to pollute, collude and mislead us, but advances in technology are rapidly making them accountable not just to shareholders, but to everyone. Now that we have constant access to the truth about the products we use and the ethics of the companies behind them, big brands are realizing that looking great isn't enough. It's time to actually be great.

Sign Painters: What a Disappearing Art Teaches Us About Creative Purpose and Process
Brainpickings

"If the trailer is anything to go by, it's going to be a lovely piece of work…"
Creative Review

SYNOPSIS

There was a time, as recently as the 1980s, when storefronts, murals, banners, barn signs, billboards, and even street signs were all hand-lettered with brush and paint. But, like many skilled trades, the sign industry has been overrun by the techno-fueled promise of quicker and cheaper. The resulting proliferation of computer-designed, die-cut vinyl lettering and inkjet printers has ushered a creeping sameness into our landscape. Fortunately, there is a growing trend to seek out traditional sign painters and a renaissance in the trade. Sign Painters, the first anecdotal history of the craft, features stories and photographs of more than two dozen sign painters working in cities throughout the United States.
