A restrained and mysterious film about a disenchanted Peruvian family man who drives a taxi for a living. His perspective on life is transformed by a prophet, a dark road, and a passenger with a secret — all over the course of one shift.

Aspen Film Jury: “With clear focus and direction, this tense and minimalist story never yields momentum. Unlike the audience, the director clearly sees the road ahead and deftly drives the narrative to its satisfying cinematic destination.”

Ever wondered why the chip on your credit card made it slower — or where the chip and stripe on your credit card even came from?

Here’s the story. In the mid-’60s, the airline industry had a problem. The 747, the first real jumbo jet, had just been introduced. There were more passengers at the airport than before. More passengers meant longer lines. And that was especially bad because this was the era when customers paid for their tickets right there at the airport — often by credit card.

Back then, paying by credit cards was a whole ordeal. The airlines had to call up the bank manually in order to confirm the card. With lines growing, the airlines needed a faster process. So they called IBM to ask for help, and that’s where our story (which also features some French fraudsters and a hippie inventor) begins.

Belluno is a small town in the north east of Italy, surrounded by the Dolomites. It’s my hometown.
I came back here after having spent a few years in London. Not too many, just enough to see my hometown so different compared to the place I had left for the city. Everything here has changed and I changed too so… old news I guess.

The thing I miss the most about London is walking around without a destination. I’ve spent days discovering new places, looking for the smallest detail here and there.
I tried to do the same here but it didn’t work out. It actually felt sad, I’m still not sure why.

I had to do something to reunite with this place. I’ve spent 11 days forcing myself to document every angle of Belluno. I did this taking pictures of its walls with a small window open on something that represents my relationship with my hometown.

This video documents this action.

After all the hard work I am still having the same mixed feelings about this place and living here, but at least I’ve discovered that every wall, no matter how many we build, has a crack or a scratch. And this is a relief.

//Sunshine #2 Island//
D MUSEUM presents Weather, an exhibition elevating our experiences of the weather through photographs, video, sound and installation works, from May 3 to October 28, 2018.
The exhibition features the works of 26 international artists, each engaging with climatic phenomena such as sunlight, snow, rain, mist and thunderstorms from her or his own unique perspective.
Weather awakens the sensibilities and memories of each audience, in a space filled with special stories of the weather, told by artists with multifaceted perspectives and in different spaces and times.
The works in the exhibition invite us to recall internal memories and forgotten sensations of the weather, discovering the value in familiar everyday moments.

Ultra-running is one of those sports that takes everything. The training, the diet, the lifestyle, it all requires an immense amount of dedication if you want to compete seriously. Robbie Britton is taking it seriously.

Just what goes through the mind of someone who wants to be best, in one of the world’s most punishing sports?
