As soon as you’re done reading this, get your tickets here. This documentary is a must see for every human being, as it confronts us as a species with how we treat ourselves, each other, our planet and our fellow inhabitants here on Earth. There isn’t much more to say about it, other than that it has left us utterly speechless – and filled with inspiration. You have certainly seen Sebastião Salgado‘s work at some point in your life. He is renowned for the long-term projects he undertakes, devoting years at a time to documenting the story of a particular people or the evolution of a certain place. Go see. read more

And it’s on. The search for the Sound – Het Geluid – is in full effect, baffling people every hour as the stakes are raised by incorrect descriptions. Although the game is simple as ever, the players become increasingly fanatic every year. So we had to gear the game up. Mattie & Wietze, helpful as they are, conduct a high speed chase on high altitude in order to discover what the Sound is. We upgraded Mattie & Wietze’s appearance, starting with their red suits and added some guts. We’ve never seen anyone hanging upside down from the top of a skyscraper as comfortable as Mattie. Held by his ankles. By Wietze. Directed by Marco Grandia.
About twenty years ago, your average dance party was likely to be held on a desolated downtrodden piece of grass in the middle of nowhere. There’d be about a hundred people dancing to the wobbling beats from a shaky sound system and you were sipping lukewarm beer from a dented can, waiting for the cops to come and break it up. But that was before ID&T arrived at the scene. ID&T has cultivated the art of party organization to an almost science-fictional level and has turned electronic dance music into a worldwide flourishing industry. This short documentary, directed by Thijs Schreuder-Rinnooy Kan, captures the turbulent history of ID&T, its process of transformation and finally presents their vision on the future – to Celebrate Life with as many people as possible.
Patagonia is one of the few brands that understands its reason for existence, which is clearly captured in their latest project; Worn Wear. It is an exploration of quality – in the things we own and the lives we live. This short film takes you to an off-the-grid surf camp in Baja, Mexico; a family’s maple syrup harvest in Contoocook; an organic farm in Ojai, California; and into the lives of a champion skier, a National Geographic photographer, and a legendary alpinist. It also features interviews with Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard. Worn Wear is an invitation to celebrate the stuff you already own. More stories to be found here.
Water is easily taken for granted. You simply open up the tap and there it is; fresh ‘n clean. Or, when you’re easily bored, you can choose water from a variety of springs and different bottles and bubbles. The only thing we tend to overlook, is its polluting transportation and the growing amount of plastic waste floating around in our oceans. ID&T strives to offer fresh, filtered and free tap water at all their festivals and asked us to communicate this in an economic and understandable manner. We thought a simple, short animation would do the trick. Illustrations by Tim Boelaars and animated by David de Bruijne.
Slomo is called Slomo because he skates up and down a San Diego boardwalk – as if in slow motion – day in, day out. It’s his way to get into “the zone,” a realm of pure subjectivity and connectedness. And that’s all he does. He used to be a doctor with nothing more on his mind than buying expensive cars, until he listened to someone who gave him some good advice. Slomo is quite a radical type of person. Director John Izenberg intended to create ‘a window into the ecstatic experience that Slomo has every day’, transcending the trappings of the material world and expectations others might have. He’s simply happy. And that’s good.
