Scrambled

Scrambled from Polder Animation on Vimeo.

A typical modern teenager Esra misses her train causing her to feel frustrated and angry. She slumps onto a bench on a train platform and starts to play a frenetic and mind blowing game on her smart phone. A Rubik's cube decides she needs some 'calm' and approaches to assist with some interesting outcomes.

Johnny Express

JOHNNY EXPRESS from 274custom on Vimeo.

In the year 2150, Johnny, a lazy Space Delivery Man, must deliver a package on a planet he does not fully understand. When the spaceship arrives at its new destination all he has to do is simply deliver one tiny package on this new planet. However his latest delivery doesn't go as planned. The planet is so small it takes him only 5 minutes to circumvent it looking for anyone to deliver to. While his problems are small, on a much smaller scale the residents of the planet have some very big problems.

The action cuts quickly between Johnny's frustration in looking for but not finding the alien to deliver the package to and the chaos he unknowingly creates on the planet. This short film is full of slightly dark humour and dramatic sequences - be prepared for a shock ending.

Award-winning director Damon Gameau (That Sugar Film) embarks on a journey to explore what the future could look like by the year 2040 if we simply embraced the best solutions already available to us to improve our planet and shifted them rapidly into the mainstream. Structured as a visual letter to his 4-year-old daughter, Damon blends traditional documentary with dramatised sequences and high-end visual effects to create a vision board of how these solutions could regenerate the world for future generations.

On 22 July 2011 more than 500 youths at a political summer camp on an island outside Oslo were attacked by an armed, right-wing extremist. Earlier that day he bombed a Government building in Oslo, before making his way to Utøya island. In this first fictional movie about the attack we get to know Kaja (18) and her friends. The movie starts when the youngsters, shocked by the bombing in Oslo, are reassuring their relatives that they are far away from the incident. Suddenly, the safe atmosphere is shattered when shots are heard. We then follow Kaja as she tries to survive – minute
by minute.

«How they experienced this terror attack is hard to describe in words. My hope is that the movie can help us understand and show even more compassion for those whothrough fate and coincidence were caught up in the chaos when evil struck.»

In an isolated mountain community, the villagers have not been told by overseer Marchesa that sharecropping has been made illegal - so they continue to work for almost nothing. Lazzaro is a kind teenager who’s always given the village’s most thankless tasks. After striking up an unlikely alliance with Marchesa’s son, Lazzaro is caught up in a fake kidnapping scheme that will send him on a journey through time itself... 

Rohrwacher has crafted a magic-realist fable that doubles as an origin myth for a modern Italy subsumed by corruption and decline.  

– Gwilym Mumford, The Guardian

a slow but bewitching burn that rewards viewers’ patience with humor and uncanny grace

 -Guy Lodge, Variety

…..there is a genuine freshness and idiosyncrasy to her (Rohrwachers)work..
