I like the distorted images in CORPORATE CANNIBAL very much. This music video reminds me of the distorted images in

Thanks to Filmsick who told me about this.

I saw THE BOY FROM MARS in late December in 2005, so I put it in my list of most favorite short films of 2006.

I think THE BOY FROM MARS can be a part of an unintentional trilogy of films about light in the darkness. The two other films in this trilogy are

3.1 THE TRUTH AND THE LIGHT (2000, Rob Kennedy, A+)

Description of this film from
http://www.transmediale.de/01/en/pres_emare.htm

“The two dimensional limits of the video screen are utilised to re-frame an un-extraordinary occurence. In the flatness of the video image light, colour and time abstract the landscape to create other orders”

3.2 PROSPERITY FOR 2008 (2008, Apichatpong Weerasethakul, A+)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G-bSGuz1IJA

4.THE MAN WHO STRAYED (2002, Jesper Just, Denmark)

5.NO MAN IS AN ISLAND II (2004, Jesper Just, Denmark)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QJw2HsNR8kE

6.ARTISTS LOOKING AT CAMERA (2006, Guthrie Lonergan)

The last artist is very cute. I knew about this video from Ed Halter’s article.
