The Missing Tape

· Leave a comment

When I first approached this opportunity to talk at this year’s Video Vortex, I scratched my head a bit – mainly over two obstacles:

First, what could I really contribute to the discussion on online video, when so far, I’ve mostly focused  on sequence and transition between static information. Second, and that’s where it became interesting – I have this growing feeling of unease when using the term ‘video’ at all, with regard to social media. But this second one actually made me realize, that by confronting and dismantling this terminology, my first obstacle could actually turn out to be an advantage.

Stand up comedy is a popular form of entertainment in Nigeria, with tens of thousands attending shows around the country every year. In recent years, comedians are using other forms, like the scene acted out in this video to entertain – for good reasons. These are easier to organize and usually span a few minutes that is ideal for YouTube. Shorter videos tend to be generally more popular online. (more…)

Harlem Shaking Corruption

· Leave a comment

Ladies and gentlemen, the hottest internet meme of 2013 has infiltrated the Corruption Eradication Commission in Jakarta, Indonesia.

Among the myriad of harlem shake videos on YouTube, some took place in the CNN building and army barracks – and apparently now, in the press room of the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) in Jakarta, Indonesia.

In the year 2010, due to the terrible working conditions of the contemporary mining industry in Chile, 33 miners remained caught in a deposit of the north of the country. The workers remained caught for more than two months, provoking a drama, of national and international scale, that was shared via television, by millions.

The video is part of a broadcast of a channel of Chilean television on the 21st day of confinement. The journalist starts saying: “talking of chilenity”(chilean idiosyncrasy), as if the drama of the struggle against this tragedy forms part of national identity or as if it was a mantra repeated across earthquakes, tsunamis and floods.  (more…)

This is a bit of an oldie… but not too old to share. It’s slightly low-techi, still I wish this film would become more viral anyhow, regardless of how long it’s been around, as I feel it is one of the most moving video pieces on the subject.

The Gaza Canal

Considering the matter of propaganda in Israeli media, one cannot disregard the grave role which visitor centers play in the Zionist machine, when presenting the ongoing narrative of justification of the current unbearable status quo, a.k.a, the Israeli Occupation. Any non Israeli Jew who ever participated in a Taglit* tour to Israel has been suckered into this ethos time and again, without the fair chance to think things through from a balanced perspective.  (more…)

The show aired its second season this week, I posted the trailer here on top. You can also catch a glimpse of the teaser for the last aired episode so far, here: (more…)
