A fierce synergy of sound, earth and movement starring Finke performer Derik Lynch Filmed across Lake Bumbunga, a salt lake located in South Australia, Urritjara, starring actor and performer Derik Lynch, is a gripping portrait of the synergy between sound, earth and movement directed by Tim Georgesen. Urritjara is the term for ‘movement’ in Yankunytjatjara language — the language native to Lynch’s father’s family. Born and raised in Aputula (Finke) Community in Central Australia, dance has always been a big part of Lynch’s culture and practice. In Urritjara, his debut performance in a movement-based work, Lynch reveals various forms and the space around him to the sounds of Kalkani, a composition by vocalist, composer and didgeridoo virtuoso William Barton and improvising cross-genre violinist and composer Veronique Serret.
A casual motorbike journey through Tokyo's nocturnal streets takes an unexpected turn This hypnotic journey from filmmaker Tim Georgeson follows Tokyo native Satoshi on his vintage motorbike through the city's streets at night, while he reflects on all things nocturnal. At turns mystical and haunting, the film takes us through a portal in time, space, and toward a feeling that we didn't know existed. “At turns mystical and haunting, the film takes us through a portal in time and space” What emerges is a surreal sojourn into the unknown spaces of our everyday urban spaces—bringing new life to the filmic tradition of the road movie.

TENNEN BY HANIA RANI
A haunting drone reminiscent of Eastern music intros the track and gently fades into the composer's hallmark cascade of elegiac piano arpeggios. Rani came across the title for the release at an exhibition on tea ceremonies in Japan. "Tennen means the natural state of things as they are, without affection," she says. "This feeling explains the atmosphere that I wanted to achieve and describes the natural flow of the music."
Mystique Sequence is an emotionally driven environmental film that explores the connection between the ocean and the landscape of Montauk, the most mystical and easterly point of Long Island. Through weather and textures, voice, sound design, spectacular scenes from high above and way below, and an eye that wanders deeply into both the elements of land and water, the tapestry of these landscapes are highlighted, fused and resolved. This powerful film evokes, and also questions, our world. Voice over by Allan Watts “Love Of Waters”
