The 6th-10th Most Frequently Borrowed Titles From e-flux video rental


6. Living a Beautiful Life, Corinna Schnitt, United States/Germany (2003, 13 minutes). A beautiful couple in a Beverly Hills mansion describe what appears to be their perfect life; their dialogue actually comes from Ms. Schnitt's interviews with 14-year-olds in Los Angeles about their ideas of happiness.

7. Polaroid Cocaine, Michel Auder, United States (1993, 5 minutes). A montage of images accompanied by cabaret music that, in Mr. Auderís words, "simultaneously reveal and feed an addiction to spectacle."

8. Occupation, Clemens von Wedemeyer, Germany (2001, 8 minutes). A film crew tries to shoot a night scene with 200 extras standing inside a rectangular painted boundary.

9. I Verdi Giorni, Diego Perrone, Italy (2000, 3 minutes). The mischievous and increasingly violent antics of four young children are depicted in classically styled hand-drawn animation.

10. The Landscape Is Changing [see image above], Mircea Cantor, Romania (2003, 12 minutes). A march, staged and filmed by Mr. Cantor in Tirana, Albania, in which the demonstrators carry large flexible mirrors that create undulating reflections of the city around them.

Since 2001 here at, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting that time.
