Points of view

Eduardo Basualdo, Eyelids, 2014, 2 min (nominated by Fundación Proa, Buenos Aires)
Karen Mirza and Brad Butler, The Unreliable Narrator, 2014, 16:50 min (nominated by the Whitechapel Gallery, London)
Tanya Busse and Emilija Skarnulyte, Hollow Earth, 2014, 22:26 min (nominated by Tromsø Kunstforening)
The camera in Eyelids focuses on two semitransparent curtains and the view from the inside to the outside. The Unreliable Narrator questions the revision of terrorist attacks by the media. Put to the background of meditative sound, Hollow Earth is dedicated to the dramatic changes in the landscape north of the Arctic Circle.
