This short, charming animation by Jeremy Clapin follows the life of a man who is randomly struck by a giant meteor nobody else saw. Rather than kill him, it moved his physical form 91cm away from where it normally should be. We recommened taking a few minutes out of your day to watch this delightful story.

We recommend taking a minute out of your morning to watch this trailer for a wonderful looking new animation by Anete Melece. "For years now, the kiosk has been Olga's little home simply because her sweet tooth and monotonous life has made her bigger than the exit. To distract herself, she reads travel magazines and dreams of being far away. An absurd incident starts the beginning of her journey." We are looking forward to the full feature!

The new video for Just Blaze & Baauer's latest track "Higher" is one of the most beautifully shot we have seen in a while. However, this is not surprising considering renowned director Nabil is the man behind it. The video tells the the epic story of a group of Kalaripayattu warriors (martial artists) and a spirited young kid in Kerala, India, who leads his fellow child vigilantes to fight a drunk bully.

We've all, at one point or another, wondered what the meaning of sneakers hanging from telephones lines is. It's something we have debated with friends and heard plenty of different stories about.

Hearsay of the Soul is film director Werner Herzog's first video art installation. Projected on three adjacent walls and eighteen minutes in length, the five-channel video combines selected landscape etchings by Hercules Segers (Dutch, about 1589–about 1638) with the contemporary avant-garde music of composer/cellist Ernst Reijseger (Dutch, born 1954). The juxtaposition of Segers's lush prints of enigmatic vistas with Reijseger's expressive and experimental music results in a richly layered work that is both intimate and epic.
