Hearing Madge


Published on Jan 24, 2017 Aeon Video

"Pressing the ashes of the dead onto records: odd novelty or tender remembrance?

When it first made headlines in 2010, Jason Leach’s UK-based company And Vinyly – which presses the ashes of the deceased into vinyl records for loved ones wishing to hold onto their memory – appeared to be something of a macabre novelty. But there might be more to preserving the departed (quite literally) on records than first meets the eye – and ear. Hearing Madge explores how Leach’s venture was given new meaning when he was approached by a man looking to save his mother’s recollections that he had recorded shortly before her death. Surprisingly touching, Andrea Lewis’s short documentary is both a profile of an unusual business and a thought-provoking contemplation of the ways we chose to remember the dead.

Director: Andrea Lewis"

They Are The Last


They Are The Last from Kauri Multimedia on Vimeo.

"*WINNER SPECIAL JURY AWARD, DC SHORTS FILM FESTIVAL 2014.

34 degrees 24 minutes 19 seconds South,
53 degrees, 46 minutes 40 seconds West.

Leonardo Da Costa is a lighthouse keeper stationed in Cabo Polonio, a remote cape in a stretch of Uruguayan coastline rich in shipwrecks and sunken treasures.

Cabo Polonio’s light has been guiding ships since 1881, and Da Costa is the latest in a long line of watchmen who have operated the tower with care and attention. He leads an unassuming life, the tranquility of the almost intact landscape keeping him company. Serenity and silence merge with the daily tasks and chores he carries out. Da Costa represents a rare profession that still survives in a few countries.

Take some time to appreciate a gentle and enlightening way of life, for once it is gone, it will be missed.

Wanderers - a short film by Erik Wernquist


Wanderers - a short film by Erik Wernquist from Erik Wernquist on Vimeo.

"For more information and stills gallery, please turn to: www.erikwernquist.com/wanderers
(Just in case my website runs slow, here is a link to an imgur album version of the gallery: http://imgur.com/a/Ur5dP)

Wanderers is a vision of humanity's expansion into the Solar System, based on scientific ideas and concepts of what our future in space might look like, if it ever happens. The locations depicted in the film are digital recreations of actual places in the Solar System, built from real photos and map data where available.
Without any apparent story, other than what you may fill in by yourself, the idea of the film is primarily to show a glimpse of the fantastic and beautiful nature that surrounds us on our neighboring worlds - and above all, how it might appear to us if we were there.
