The Light is a experimental short film series about how media works and how it affects us. Ads use manipulative tactics that influence in ways we don't even realize.
"Experts in the field call it "referencing". We reference, either intentionally or otherwise, to lifestyles represented to us (in the media or in real life) that we find attractive. We create a vision of ourselves living this idealized lifestyle, and then behave in ways that help us to realize the vision.", Adam Dachis (lifehacker)

Modern architecture, and the fight for its value in the world, is brought into sharp focus in this documentary examining the battle over the preservation of former Prentice Women’s Hospital in downtown Chicago, designed by master modern architect Betrand Goldberg.
The owner of the building is Chicago institution Northwestern University, which intends to demolish the unique brutalist building, composed of a nine-story concrete cloverleaf tower cantilevered over a rectangular five-story podium.
The stage is set for what some preservationists believe will be a defining moment in the battle to preserve modern architecture, and poses the question, Who determines the future of the past?
Directed by journalist and Northwestern alumnus Nathan Eddy, the film made its world premiere at the Durban Film Festival in South Africa and subsequently screened at the Architecture Film Festival Rotterdam and the Architecture & Design Film Festival in New York.
In the first release of This Place, we explore the Oregon Coast through a short film and series of interactive vignettes. We take to the road to get to the heart of the questions, “What makes the Oregon coast unique?” And “Why do so many people consider it not just special, but sacred?”
From its local inhabitants to its visitors, the Oregon Coast means different things to different people. This Place is a portrait of the coast as seen through the eyes of a few who cherish it.
