Audio/Visual Film Review: “Life In A Day”

Life In A Day comes from a fantastic concept. YouTube back in 2010 asked everyone to film their day on July 24th and upload their videos to the website. After much watching, sifting, editing and clever arrangingĀ later, Life In A Day was born. Frankly, the results are quite profound. The fact everyone made these clips […]

Film Review: Babies

Slightly different from our usual audio/visual non narrative films HPM reviews, Babies actually follows four humans during their first few months of birth. We see them come into the world and observe little triumphs and dramas of their daily lives. Babies works on several different levels. The first is purely for baby lovers – these […]

Film Review: Samsara

Samsara, the latest audio visual piece of cinema from Ron Fricke & Co is a delightful feast for the eyes and ears. Following in very similar footsteps to Baraka that came before it, Samsara feels much more about circles of life rather than being a world prayer. The first thing that strikes you is the […]

Film Review: Timescapes

Timescapes is a fantastic audio-visual movie from Tow Lowe. It’s also the first movie to be sold as a 4K download file. Following very much in the footsteps of self-confessed inspiration Ron Frickie, Timescapes is a forty minute feast for the eyes. The time-lapse photography here is stunningly crisp and clean. The twisting cameras that […]

Audio Visual Film: “Zen” by Fabian Enzinger

A lovely new audio-visual film entitled “Zen” by Fabian Enzinger is now available to watch in full on YouTube. The movie itself was shot in 1999 as we visit a Zen Temple in the Japanese alps. Baring more than a passing resemblance to Baraka and Koyanisqatsi, the film also features music from Michael Sterns’ Baraka […]

Our Daily Bread – Film Review

Our Daily Bread is one of the most abstract audio/visual films I’ve seen to date and yet it ones of the most relevant of them all. Taking a no holds barred look inside mass production farming and food processing, it will be for some viewers actually too much to watch. Starting off with vegetable and […]

Microcosmos – Film Review

As HPM will now also have a small section dedicated to Audio/Visual films such as the wonderful qatsi trilogy, Baraka and Chronos, I felt it’s only right to tell everyone about this fantastic film. “Microcosmos” should do for insects what Joe’s Apartment did for cockroaches. Opening to a short narration and a beautiful theme song […]
