Winners & Jury of POOL 14

POOL 14 was presenting an international selection of short dance films from September 11 to 13 at DOCK 11 in Berlin.
Already its eighth year, POOL attracts highly inspired approaches to filmmaking. Throughout the world, artists are creating choreography exclusively for, and with, the camera. The results are of very high quality and test the boundaries and possibilities of the genre. In addition, the films incorporate other creative areas such as fashion, advertising and music.
The POOL 14 jury has assembled a film programme from all submissions and selected its favourites, the 'PEARLS 14,' which have been presented to the public on the final evening. During the festival, POOL offered its visitors a forum for creative exchange and cooperation.

Programme 11.09.14

Simona Deaconescu

Romania 2013, 00:11:54

A choreographer, a director of photography, a music composer and five dancers meet up on infinite ground, a space filled with
interlinked relationships. A moment of gaze upon each other tampers in a stream of emotions that flows out with different
dynamics. Five strangers are gathered in the same unwelcoming space, fighting together for a way out, tired by their confused
thoughts, trying to regain strenght over their altered bodies. The story unfolds itself from within. The camera bursts into the heart
of the dance whilst the music copes with the cruelty and the fever of everyday’s warfare.

Stephanie Scheubeck, Roger Rossell

Germany 2014, 00:04:25


Im medizinischen Kontext war Aion eine Bezeichnung für das Rückenmark (als Lebensnerv)
Heraklit sagt: „Aion ist ein Knabe, der spielt, die Brettsteine hin und her setzt: einem Knaben gehört die Königsherrschaft.“
Mit dem Spiel ist hier die Aufeinanderfolge zyklischer Zeitabschnitte (Tage, Jahreszeiten, Weltalter) gemeint. Das Spiel endet, die Steine werden neu aufgestellt und ein neuer Zyklus beginnt.
Im Gegensatz zur Verwendung bei Heraklit erscheint der Begriff bei Platon in Timaios 37d nicht als Bezeichnung eines Zyklus, sondern als Gegenteil und Gegensatz der zyklisch fortschreitenden Zeit (Chronos). Der Himmel mit den Bewegungszyklen der Himmelskörper und Sphären ist ein Sinnbild der Ewigkeit, aber eben nicht die Ewigkeit (Aion) selbst.
In the medical context Aion was a name for the spinal cord (as the lifeblood)
Heraclitus says: „Aion is a boy who plays the board pieces back and forth continously. A boy owns the kingdom“
With the game here is meant the succession of cyclical periods (days, seasons, world age). The game ends, the stones are reorganized and a new cycle begins.
In contrast to the use in Heraclitus, the term appears in Plato’s Timaeus 37d in not as a designation of a cycle, but as opposite and contrast the cyclic advance of time (Chronos). The sky with the movement cycles of the heavenly bodies and spheres is a symbol of eternity, but not eternity (Aion) itself.

Stand 4.18, POOL - INTERNATIONALE TanzFilmPlattform BERLIN

We’re writing the year 2033, the political system has changed under the global power of the United States. The government is using a new malicious control-mechanism, to block people’s freewill and autonomy.
This majority of the population is called “Rhythm Slaves”. But there are some individuals left, who refuse to be absorbed by the system. They are practicing a religion called “COMO” (Conscious Movement). In order to refill the big city with positive, universal energy, the so-called “Comoshas” are executing dance rituals on public places, mostly in the night, when the slaves are sleeping & the speakers are silent.

Intrinsic Moral Evil

Harm Weistra

Netherlands 2013, 00:10:45

Intrinsic Moral Evil seems to be a tale of identity and coming of age. But above all, the three dancers play a game with the viewer’s perception and expectations: is it a memory, a dream, a search for identity ? Is it about losing of friendship or about growing up? The layered story gradually develops; revealing its last secrets just before the end credits start. Leaving the audience in confusion; inviting them to make their own interpretation.

 Nol King Ruter, POOL 14 - INTERNATIONALE TanzFilmPlattform BERLIN

Nol King Ruter celebrates his 65th birthday with a grand banquet, inviting his closest family, friends and colleagues. Many join in, to give him an unforgettable day. During the festivities, old quarrels flare up, new loves arise, while Nol King Ruter challenges the dancers to battle over his legacy. The old master embodies the motto, dance is live and live is dance, and wants to shine one last time. He shows his younger colleagues how extremely fit he still seems and appears to have no burden of physical discomforts. Nol King Ruter really enjoys performing even though his body objects in the course (of) the feast. As a piéce the rèsistance Nol King Ruter dances a new performance with his daughter. His body suddenly refuses to dance any longer. Nol King Ruter finally has to give up the one thing he loves most.

Mads Dinesen, Mali Lazell, Adrian Künzel

Germany 2014, 00:02:53


„Choose Your Battles. Fight The Fight.“

The journey of a warrior. A short Fashionfilm for the A/W 2014 collection „Smoke-clad Warrior“ by Mads Dinesen. Throughout the history of humanity and everywhere on earth, individuals, movements, and groups of people have expressed their ideals and principles by means of protests, marches and demonstrations. Recently, we have witnessed the Arab Spring and the resistance against the oppression of LGBT individuals and organizations in Russia. Clashes occur between governments and people, between different interest groups, or between an individual and a society. The energy that is released in clashes like these serves as the main inspiration for the AW2014 collection “Smoke-Clad Warrior” by MADS DINESEN. How are protest, resistance and ideals expressed through clothing, not only from the point of view of the individual, but also from a societal and cultural point of view? Do we conform our style based on a certain way of living or on a sense of idealism? Or do we express ourselves through slogans on T-shirts and badges? The collection is a tribute to all historical and contemporary pioneers who are risking their honour, freedom and occasionally also their life in order to change the world for the better. Changes, that we as a society now may perceive as being natural or normal, often only occurred after long and heroic fights. To fight for political and societal change, we must go on an introspective journey to be convinced of the idealistic fight ahead. Only by accurately determining our own beliefs, it becomes possible to conquer any injustices we face. But where does an individual encounter his own limits? This emotional, almost spiritual, way to construct a worldview is comparable to an inner journey where each and every one of us becomes our own spiritual leader. We transform into shamans, priests, or holy men, who through knowledge and experience attempt to shape the world to our personal ideals; that is the main theme of this ethnically mystical, yet youthfully provocative collection.

Glove Story

Special 13.09.14

Oren Shkedy

Israel 2013, 00:38:10

Glove Story explores the notion of personal space and the all-too-often invasion into it. It asks the question: what are the psychological, physical and social repercussions of treating borders as mere suggestions? This question echoes much stronger in the local political climate of our region and of our times. The film follows four characters through a series of hyper-realistic topographies and architectural settings in which, like in Sartre’s “No Exit”, individuals are one another’s heaven or hell.
