  2. Buenos Aires-based filmmaking collective 1985 offer a unique portrait of the Kenzo founder, told through his hands. Speaking about their original approach to portraiture, the directorial collective explain: "We believe hands can tell you a lot about a person, because hands do not have a social construction—they’re the same when we are with people and when we are alone."

  3. The latest episode of our Scenes series—which profiles wild and wonderful cultural experiences around the world—takes a nose dive into the subterranean world of London’s techno clubs, courtesy of filmmaker Joseph Delaney and alien industrial zine SORT. The London-based director’s film documents the chthonic underbelly of a space where free expression is pushed to the extreme. As Delaney explains, "Anyone with a penchant for a little darkness can get a bad wrap. But this community—introspective, often intelligent and always respectful—are onto something. This is the true safe space, stripped of the politics of identity—held together by nothing more than a need to seek out extreme music and the hedonism that surrounds that."

  4. For the latest episode of our series exploring worship and spirituality around the world, French contemporary artist and filmmaker Caroline Monnet explores ritual practices among indigenous First Nation tribes in North America. Here she explains the complexities of depicting ceremonies that ordinary remain secret from the eyes of the world:

    “Given the importance and abundance of ceremonial practices to most Indigenous communities, there is an inevitable curiosity from the outside world to ‘know’ or ‘see’ how these sacred rituals play themselves out. But can anything remain sacred and private in a world that demands immediacy and a projected image of what sells unscrupulously as the truth? Can Indigenous communities practice their cultural beliefs without the fear of a camera trying to capture the ceremony? “Often, this quest for forbidden knowledge speaks to ravenous cultural consumerism and a lack of guidance from a non-Indigenous standpoint. The narrative is built on a collage of original 16mm, 8mm and digital footage pieced together to provide a hypnotic rhythm that draws us inward to remind us that some ritualistic practices are confidential and belong exclusively to the communities who perform them.”
