La Telenovela Errante (The Wandering Soap Opera) Raoul Ruiz, Valeria Sarmiento
La Telenovela Errante is a wry, satirical comment on the slippage of Chilean social, economic and political reality into nested fictions couched in a clever deployment of convention, cliché and kitsch.

Un film d'Aquaserge Guilaume Bordier, Marlène Laviale
A cinema sound-recordist is present for the recording of an album by the group Aquaserge. Equipped with her boom, she moves around the enclosed space of the studio and has us discover a rich world of sound.
