Description: The last movie in Vidokle's trilogy on Cosmism is a meditation on the museum as the website of resurrection-a central concept for many Cosmist thinkers, scientists and avant-garde artists. Filmed at the State Tretyakov Gallery, the Moscow Zoological Museum, The Lenin Library, and the Museum of Revolution, the movie looks at museological and archival techniques of collection, restoration and conservation as a means of the material restoration of life, following an essay penned by Nikolai Federov on this topics in the 1880s. The movie follows a cast comprised of present-day followers of Federov, few actors, artists and a Pharaoh Hound that playfully enact a resurrection of a mummy, a close examination of Malevich's Black Square, Rodchenko's spatial constructions, taxidermied animals, artifacts of the Russian Revolution, skeletons, and mannequins in tableau vivant-like scenes, in order to make a contemporary visualization of the poetry implicit in Federov's writings.

Description: The second installment of Anton Vidokle’s trilogy on Russian cosmism, The Communist Revolution Was Caused By The Sun, looks at the poetic dimension of the solar cosmology of Soviet biophysicist Alexander Chizhevsky. Shot in Kazakhstan, where Chizhevsky was imprisoned and soon exiled, the movie introduces Сhizhevsky’s research into the impact of solar emissions on human sociology, psychology, politics, and economics in the form of wars, revolutions, epidemics, and another upheavals. It aligns the life of post-Soviet rural residents and the futurological projects of Russian cosmism to emphasize that the target of the early Soviet breakthroughs aimed at the conquest of outer zone was not so much technical acceleration, but the common cause of humankind in their struggle vs the limitations of earthly life.

Killing in Umm al-Hiran #

Released 9/26/2018

Description: Before dawn on 18 January 2017, a police force raided the illegalized Bedouin village of Umm al-Hiran at the northern threshold of the Naqab/Negev Desert in order to demolish few houses. Two folks were killed: a Bedouin villager, Yaqub Musa Abu al-Qi’an, and an Israeli policeman, Erez Levi. Instantly after the incident, the Israeli government and police claimed the incident was a ‘terror attack’ by Abu al-Qi’an, and further, that he had urls to Daesh (ISIS). Forensic Architecture’s investigation of the incident, in collaboration with the activist group ActiveStills, helped to expose the falseness of this narrative, and established the veracity of local residents and activist claims that Abu al-Qi’an lost control of his car and ran over Levi only after being shot by Israeli policemen, subsequently left to bleed out and die. This analysis assisted in forcing the police to retract its narrative of the events, and led to an internal police investigation yet to be concluded.

It is a collection of some of the strongest and scariest folks to ever walk the earth. The atmosphere inside the cinder block walls has been described as a prison yard weight pile. Wars and cussing are part of the charm, as are tattoos and facial hair. The environment is brutal and wears fast on lifters with thin skin. Each day at Westside its dog eat dog. It's a proven recipe for globe records (over 140 and counting), but is it worth the price of the pain? When the weights are large enough to kill, how far would you go for a number?

Love Child Reviews:

In the 1990's, South Korea was still trailing behind in the internet/online renaissance that incalculably impacted global communication, so in response to its tardiness, the South Korean government took a large risk in building and developing infrastructure that would not only improve South Korea's communication with the globe but create it one of the world's largest digital leaders. Its infrastructure, which greatly assisted in broadband, wireless, and wired connectivity propelled it to one of the main digital giants in the twenty-first century, but its prolific test of technology has also made it a nation affected greatly by "internet addiction." Valerie Veatch's Love Kid explores the concept of internet addiction in South Korea by using one of its most public situations as its thesis. In 2010, in the town of Seoul, South Korea, an infant kid was found dead from malnutrition directly because of parental neglect. The parents of the kid were found to enjoy an RPG minigame online for anywhere between six and twelve hours a day; a minigame that was, ironically, centered on raising and nurturing a virtual kid that would grow up to bear unthinkable powers. The situation was heavily publicized and the concept of whether or not internet addiction should be a practical and rational diagnosis began to concern folks globally.The couple was testing the pc minigame Prius, which, we learn, has attracted numerous folks to its online community thanks to its gorgeous, colourful graphics, heavy-use of individuality through pre-programmed personalities, and entirely customizable avatars. While the in-home pc is still a very large luxury in South Korea, many flock to a local gaming lounge, equipped with variety of fully-customized computers where folks pay by the hour to enjoy the recent online video games. The couple was told to have played up to ten to twelve hours at these lounges for the price of seven, thanks to pretty deals the club often boasts, and that the couple's only source of income seemed to come directly from the solicitation of stuff and details in the minigame for folks that didn't wish to go through the labor of now earning such things themselves.Love Kid says a tragic story, but one that was sooner or soon going to be told, what with the international rise of the internet and the amount of folks who center their lives around it. Veatch's exploration reminds me of the type of exploration Susan Saladoff gave to Stella Liebeck, the elderly girl who filed a lawsuit vs McDonald's after accidentally spilling the restaurant's coffee on herself gave her third degree burns, in her documentary Hot Coffee. The only difference is Saladoff worked to illustrate and correct numerous misconceptions about Liebeck and her situation that were perpetuated by folks shortchanged or rewriting the situation in their own blatantly incorrect way. Veatch's storyline about the Korean couple is as terrible as it sounds, and while the concept of internet addiction is a very plausible explanation, it still doesn't lessen the fact that a kid died of starvation in a well-off country because of primary parental neglect.Veatch occasionally veers off into a more impressionistic style, atypical of most documentaries, becoming more fascinated by video clips of Prius gameplay along with medium-length shots of random, day-to-day occurrences in South Korea (case and point, a kid flinging an umbrella around like a sword until it becomes inside out, with the boy's mother supporting him while she's talking on her cell phone). This proves distracting from Veatch's core thesis, which, instead of diving into the court situation for the South Korean parents, is focusing on another minor instances that almost seem launch for some type of metaphorical interpretation.Love Child, as a look at internet addiction and the side results of virtual dependency drawn in broadstrokes and taken in primary context, still works as a documentary, for its key purpose is achieved through the introduction of a specific example that bleeds into a larger, bigger issue, equipped with historical context on other country. Trust me when I say, however, this will not be all we hear about this subject, especially in documentary form.NOTE: Love Kid will air throughout the month of August 2014 on HBO.Directed by: Valerie Veatch.


This is the storyline of a South Korean couple who left their newborn baby unattended for hours at a time on a everyday basis while they played online minigames in an internet parlor. This is a storyline which is worth learning about.The movie, however, is poorly edited. There is lengthy boring footage of video games, and worse, meandering, meaningless sequences of random folks doing irrelevant things, none of which are germane to the story.Still worth watching as an necessary cautionary tale. This legal situation has made history due to it being the first of its kind--internet addiction now causing a fatality. Laws have been passed and fresh ways devised for dealing with this relatively newest form of addiction.Another criticism I have is that "internet addiction" gotta surely be a secondary diagnosis to a more serious problem. I want this had been addressed more fully.


If I said you that a married couple allow their baby die because they were too busy testing video minigames to remember she was even there, what would your reaction be? Well, sadly this is a real case, and that is what Love Kid is about, a Korean couple who became addicted to testing a complex online minigame involving taking care of a fairy baby that gains magical powers as it grows up.Love Kid does not test to create the couple look bad, in fact it shows pity for them more than anything else. Korea is surrounded by technology and anime gaming online, looking related to the town of Neo-Tokyo on the 1988 anime film Akira. Minigames are complex with nice graphics and exciting plots. I'm sure we can all agree, although I'm not much of a gamer, that in moderation the internet is a helpful and fun software to discover and communicate with the world. So how did it become a creature that drew a young couple away from their own baby to take care of a virtual one? Love Kid explains exactly this, using clips from the online games, clips of Korea's complex technological atmosphere, news broadcasts about the death of the baby and clips of the court trial. It also declares that internet addiction is becoming more of a realized trouble than an idea, even being considered a mental health trouble like drugs or booze.There may possibly be many more situations like this one, but Love Kid has documented the first. At times the internet café clips got a bit boring but the movie was shocking and eye-opening, and terrifying to even consider that parents should allow their baby die over a stupid game. The movie was dedicated to the baby, whose name was 'Love' in Korean.
