Booooooom TV Best of the Week: Music Videos, Short Films & Animation

A round-up of our favourite videos featured on Booooooom TV. This week’s selection explores a range of private dreams and frustrations that touch on the broader politics and relatability of our everyday lives.

“Zwiespalt” by Kris Lüdi & Gian Paul Lozza

Featuring UK dancer William Moore, “Zwiespalt” explores the theme of inner conflict through movement and music that is at once confrontational and cathartic. Directed by Gian Paul Lozza and Kris Lüdi of Swiss collective Hillton.

“Blue Hands” by Diyala Muir

A woman attempts to escape the ghosts of her past only to have them catch up with her on a night-bus to Nowhere in this wonderfully disorienting animation by London-based artist Diyala Muir (previously featured here). Sound by Marian Mentrup.

“Temporary short distance love affair” by Willemskantine (Mature)

Dutch artist Willemskantine’s short meditation on young love shifts perfectly between monotone declarations and over-the-top fantasies.

“Youth in Dearborn” by Andy Madeleine

New York/Los Angeles-based filmmaker Andy Madeleine offers a small glimpse into Muslim youth and Arab culture in Dearborn, Michigan — a city known as “Little Lebanon” due to having the highest percentage of Arab-Americans in the United States.
