1. A short film by Benny Box.

    Sometimes a song can get stuck in your mind. Become a little piece of unwanted music, that keeps looping for the rest of your day.

    Neurologists claim that stuck songs are like thoughts we're trying to suppress. The harder we try not to think about them, the more we can't help it. The phenomenon is also known as earworms, and the ongoing ‘dim di da da dum’ causes a kind of brain itch you can't scratch. 

    Jazz that nobody asked for is an ode to all those unwanted songs out there, that have nowhere to go. The music that haunts this film, is the amazing swing jazz tune 'Quaker City Jazz' by the long forgotten ‘Jan Savitt and his Top Hatters’. In 1937 they were the first jazz big band to feature an african american vocalist.

    The film is made without any financing, and has no commercial purpose. The love of all things animated has been the driving force for the small team of 3 persons that has created it.

  2. (Nude Praise Portraits)

    Réalisé par Jean-Paul Noguès
    Documentaire Expérimental ou Installation Vidéo 2 écrans - 2014 - 49'

    Dans son film d'animation L'Idée (1932), Berthold Bartosch personnifiait le concept d'idée par une femme nue. Idée et/ou femme que les dictatures condamnent mais qui survit à ceux qui la combattent et à ceux qui meurent pour la défendre. Depuis quelques années, nous assistons à l'utilisation croissante de la nudité par des femmes qui revendiquent leurs droits : des mouvements comme les Pussy Riot, les Femen, Free the Nipple, ou encore Aliaa Elmahdy, alors qu’une montée du conservatisme se poursuit. La nudité comme vecteur d'idées, utilisée hors des codes érotiques établis, interpelle et dérange encore au XXIe siècle. Si la notion d'idée peut être représentée par une femme nue, alors un ensemble de femmes nues peut-il incarner une multitude d'idées par leurs diverses personnalités ?

    In his cartoon movie, The Idea (1932), Berthold Bartosch personified the concept of idea by a naked woman. Idea and/or woman whom the dictatorships condemn but who survives those who dispute her woman. Idea and/or woman whom the dictatorships condemn but who survives those who dispute her and to those who die to defend her. Since a few years, we assist the increasing use of nudity by women who claim their rights : movements as Pussy Riot, Femen, Free the Nipple, or Aliaa Elmahdy, while a rise of the conservatism continues. The nudity as vector of ideas, used outside the established erotic codes, calls out and still disturbs in XXIth century. Here are 16 women embodying a multitude of ideas.
