Tony Fraginals (UK)

by Ben Young

​​Anthony Godby Johnson was an early 1990s New York City miracle: a boy who escaped years of horrific abuse only to discover that he was dying of AIDS. A boy who authored his own autobiography, who earned friends and fans worldwide—and who did not exist. Featuring Oprah Winfrey and the remnants of Johnson's long-forgotten television special alongside the first public glimpse of the hoaxer behind the myth, 'Tony Fraginals' tells the inside story of the scandal.

The Gull Chewing Gum (France)

by Guillaume Aubry

Set on the pink granite shores of Normandy, 'The Gull Chewing Gum' is a short film that proposes the reactivation of a cinematographic principle set up by the English avant-garde artist and filmmaker John Smith. Seagulls, cormorants, fishes and waves become the main actors of the landscape. Rather comic, the film can be either seen as a critical statement on how human beings try to control nature and how nature itself invents its own fiction.

Category: experimental
