This is an animation I made in memory of my grandpa, who passed away when I was 17. I stumbled upon the photos of that old family house one day, and realized that the house is no longer the same without him. As a result, I decided to pull this short clip of memory out of the land of nostalgia, of that warm, glowing, yet intimidating space, and make an animation out of it. In this way, I feel as if I could somehow externalize his quiet, yet fierce and vivid presence, and remember him forever.

On December 17, 2014, an agreement between the United States and Cuba, brokered in part by Canada and Pope Francis, began the process of restoring international relations between Cuba and the United States. On April 14, 2015, the White House announced President Obama will remove Cuba from the American government’s list of nations which sponsor terrorism. The Cuban government has reportedly welcomed the decision as “fair”. On June 30, 2015, Cuba and the U.S. reached a deal to reopen embassies in their respective capitals and reestablish diplomatic relations.
On the cusp of big change, they say Cuba in 10 years likely won’t look or feel anything like the Cuba of today.

After universe (experimental)
Federico Foria Mita Sichetti Italy
The atmosphere of the music video is between dreams and blues, with colorful and sometimes cryptic animation. It’s just the input to a free interpretation of the audience: an evocation, through the two female figures, representing the “essence” of the earth and moon, tied together by the voice over and humanized only for a projection.
A presence of a life linked to the matter throughout the pure essence, on the notes of a bit bored version of the universe.
