Odds and Ends 有的沒的 (35分鐘)

有的沒的集合了一些短片及MV,由來自美國奧勒崗州波特蘭的卡 • 林德 (Karl Lind) 策劃。其中很多影片是來自當地興盛的地下音樂,混合了自由評論和迷幻、高度制式化的視覺效果。這正是城市遊牧影展想要用這種方式來連結基層社會大眾,用一種對環境共同的目標來增進人們的溝通。

Odds and Ends is a collection of short films and music videos from Portland, Oregon in the US and curated by Karl Lind. Many of the videos are inspired by the thriving local indie music scene, and the aesthetic is a mix of liberal critique and trippy, highly stylized visuals. It’s the kind of grassroots media community we at Urban Nomad try to forge links with, as a way of increasing communication between dispersed global citizens with common goals for the planet.

The Yes Men (80分鐘)
(Chris Smith, Dan Ollman, Sarah Price / USA / 2003)
The Yes Men是一個不分性別也沒有領導人的行動主義團體。來自世界各地三百多個騙子,投入這個金錢交易的大雜院。他們問問題,然後將所有答案偷渡出去,讓大眾得以瞥見商業世界背後,人們所不知道的種種。這部影片接下來是一些反大企業行動主義者在電視上及各地商業會議模仿WTO發言人的樣子。

The Yes Men is a movie based on the activist group of the same name, which is now a genderless, loose-knit association of some 300 impostors worldwide who agree their way into the fortified compounds of commerce, ask questions, then smuggle out the stories to provide a public glimpse at the behind-the-scenes world of business. The film follows a couple of anti-corporate activist-pranksters as they impersonate World Trade Organization spokesmen on TV and at business conferences around the world.
