Alyssa wanted to express to the world how hard it is to reach your goals as an independent artist when there is such a strong tug-of-war between fans and the industry. Many music fans claim they want you to express yourself genuinely as an artist, yet they try to sway you in the direction of their choosing, and they don’t understand why you deserve to be paid. The industry offers you cash, but then, naturally, cares more about your market appeal than your vision. Alyssa tackles her experience with this conflict intimately and intelligently, and I feel that if I related to it so intensely, others will as well.

UNBIND, 5min, Australia, Dance/Experimental
Directed by Mathilde Neau
Jim is a man of great stature, imposing man, muscular, wild. His presence fills the room. The sound of his body, his breath fills the space. We feel his anxiety and discomfort. A challenge to confront.
The essence of this film, is build on the idea of achieving through accompaniment and sharing. The exchange of ideas and the mix of two conceptions are more exalting and constructive than on your own. Life worth being lived with others. It is about finding an answer to a problem by asking for help, or accepting the other to help you.
The want for Unbind was to erase all kind of distracting elements that usual way of communication implies. Here, the body language is a strong expression, through the presence of Jim and through dance. Finding another language for human expression, as powerful medium as the speech. The sounds has a particular attention to express the different steps Jim goes through and the obstacles he has to confront.
The handicap of Jim, his blindness implies facing important questioning in life. It is focusing on different ways of receipting the world and its surroundings. Ratings
