2009, 12 minutes, 16mm
In Groundplay, Robert Todd uses his 16mm camera as a microscope, nosing about in a world on a different scale. The sensitive instrument does not perceive objects, but dives into the empty spaces between them. The focus shifts to a new world filled with structures, grit and dust barely perceptible to the naked eye.

Kyle Glowacky -- IOKA

IOKA is a portrait of Exeter, New Hampshire's historic 1915 movie house. It recently closed down in 2008 due to the strict state fire codes and the need for upgrades, economic recession and lack of patronage.

Ethan Feldbau -- PLASTIC

Mariya Nikiforova -- WARD'S POND
2009, 10 minutes, 16mm
In the spirit of Robert Smithson and James Benning, 'Ward's Pond' is a film-poem dedicated to a location in Jamaica Plain, MA. A glacial kettle hole that belonged to the Ward family farm in the 1600s, the pond and its surroundings were transformed into a park by Frederick Law Olmsted at the turn of the twentieth century. Today, overshadowed by a high-rise apartment building, Ward's Pond continues its quiet existence. The film captures several moments over the course of nearly a year in its life.

Stefan Grabowski -- JOHNNY KILRAPER and the ARBITER of SILENCE
2009, 20 minutes, shot on 16mm and projected on video
Existentially lost, alcoholic ex-detective, Johnny Kilraper, must overcome his own self-loathing in order to stop international crime lord Klaus 'the Grouse' Richter from receiving a mystical jewel known as 'the Arbiter of Silence.'
