As the Film Festival winds down for 2015 our Mediazone Lab assistants, volunteers and students are more than happy to present the last installment of our video blog. The films presented moved us to tears, to joy and made us think about ourselves and the world we live in. This is the culture, the glue that keeps our society together. We need these outlets, these venues these events more now than ever before. We thank Cyprus Film Days for inviting us onto this journey, and we thank all of those that attended and decided to travel with us.

I had to put my creativity in a presentable structure limited to three minutes. Three minutes! They last forever on the stage but pass by so quickly in front of you on the countdown timer. 30 seconds left! You gotta wrap it up! Don’t stop now… “seeing what’s essential that’s invisible to the eyes, just as the Little Prince learned from the Fox, in the colours of the rainbow while embracing the sun’s radiance all the way down to the deep ocean’s midnight zone where the sea devil of the female angler fish lures you close enough and the male falls a victim to her… sublime aroma and becomes… a parasitical pair of testis attached to her body.” Continue reading
