Most of the ten works here are experiments in abstraction, but the best, To the Happy Few, is the only real “fever dream.” Editing together found footage from a variety of sources and eras and accompanying the result with a song from a Bollywood film, filmmakers Thomas Draschan and Stella Friedrichs conjure semidementia out of unexpected connections: after some porn snippets, footage of a finger pressing a button on the model of an atom seems weirdly sexual. White blobs against a black background come together evocatively, as if kissing, in Euphrosyne P. Konti's Your Kiss (2002). ReMI's Vincit Veritas (2002) begins promisingly with intricate geometrical patterns that suggest a strange emptiness, but then veers off in too many different directions. 73 min.
