Willkommen! This thread is for the sharing and discussion of short-films of all kinds.

I would like to start with two films directed by Russian filmmaker Andrei Khrzhanovsky that are of importance and demonstrate the technical level Soviet/Russian animation once operated on.

>The Glass Harmonica (1968)

The first (and allegedly only) animated film banned in the USSR for its depiction of totalitarianism and censorship of the arts. Inherently it has an anti-capitalist message in the role money plays turning people into monsters but you can obviously see what is really at work.

What is interesting about this other than the on the nose message is the use of historical artwork in a surrealist format. It was a very daring film even for life in the Khrushchev Thaw.

>The Gift
Here are three entries which were also part of the Parallel Lines short film competition.(PL was a 2010 digital campaign by Philips) They're all very different, but use the same six lines of dialog: ‘What is that?’, ‘It’s a unicorn’, ‘Never seen one up close before’, ‘Beautiful’, ‘Get away, get away’, ‘I’m Sorry.’

This film won the competition:
Porcelain Unicorn

You're welcome. After you posted The Gift, I watched about a dozen of the Parallel Lines short films. The Gift really was the best of them, imo, but I still wanted to share some of the other good ones to show how various filmmakers handled the dialog limitations.

This is one of the strangest animated shorts I've ever seen:

We have a dedicated thread for movies, series and short films but not about documentaries and i think they deserve one.

If we happen to already have one and i just missed it or the moderation thinks this fits in another thread, pls just delete.

I start with this

Last night I again watch a documentary on the Soviet-Afghan war. Last time I had watched it must have been over 10 years ago. First shown in April 1988 on a regional TV station, it's one of the most sombre war documentaries I have ever watched.
It includes interviews with conscripts, senior officers and families. It is all narrated in english and where Russian is spoken there are subtitles.
It was very interesting for me, especially the part about outposts where the conscripts were sent for 18 months at a time without leave, working in shifts, two hours on and four hours off around the clock. It must have been gruelling. The interviews with the veterans back home were interesting too, many of them seemed resigned and one seemed very bitter, after all they weren't coming home to much.
This is a documentary that shows how documentaries used to be made and how documentaries should go back to being made night, letting the subject speak and allowing his pauses and reflections.
Anyway, less chatter and here's the links, it's in three parts.

Is Ernst into Watches?
No. 21541
>Did you try to change battery?
No, I never did. When the strap broke a few years ago I just stopped wearing a watch altogether. It was a gradual process, since it cracked a little at a time and I started giving it days off to delay the inevitable. Even then, I could have replaced the strap for a couple of dollars, but I didn't. I just let it go. Now I keep it as a kind of memento, and before it completely died I actually stuffed it into a backpack and took it on a few trips. I liked that it always had my home timezone. Even though I'll probably never fix it, I can't imagine ever getting rid of it either.

I have a nice mechanical watch that I only take off when I am showering. It's not particularly expensive but I've had it for around eight years at this point and I may want to get a new band at some point but it wouldn't really be necessary to do so.

I'm not into ostentatious watches, a lot of the guys my age have watches, sometimes not even very nice ones with big bezels and overly wrought metal bands I'm not a big fan of such designs.

The second and third watches pictured, I don't think they're the exact one I saw but it is similar. When I was a waiter I was working a function for the local hospital. This one guy's watch caught my eye. Just simple gold and brown leather but it was very nice and elegant in its simplicity. ebay has really granular ways to narrow things down and I found a few that are similar and they run around 4k USD. :'(
One of the few material things I covet I suppose.

Probably has a lot to do with no culture of highway on the Russia, though for most things the really isolated shitholes in Australia just use train or airlifting too. It's usually both faster and cheaper. The Gunbarrel highway really only exists because the government needed some form of access to bumfuck egypt for weapons testing. It's been replaced by the Great Central Road which is actually in good nick but that one is busier, in better condition and is considerably less post-apocalyptic mysterious & isolated.

This, combined with very tiny population plus fact that major parts of siberia is just one giant swamp on thousands of kilometrs and absolutely impassible during spring. Cleaning roads in winter also cost many money.
For this purpose of maintaining this cities (almost of them not natural, but artificial soviet oil or industry cities tbh) was created civil atomic fleet.

Want to make some posts in thread about particulary interesting random places I accidentaly found on map

Overseas Collectivity of Saint Pierre and Miquelon

This couple of tiny islands, which located directly south from Canadian island of Newfoundland. This basicly all what remaind of previously very big french colonial territory in North America, known as Nouvelle-France.
There a couple of historical things happened on this islands, like for example in 1778 this islands was attacked by British Empire for France Support of American revolution and they returned under French jurisdiction only after Napoleonic wars. During 2nd world war they was under vichy goverment, but in end of 1941 there landed troops of Free France and after some sort of plebiscite, islands obviously become part of Free France movment.
Most populated island is more small south one, Saint Pierre with city of same name with population around 5456 people. In island Miquelon there are around 624 people. And bigger twin island, and smaller one have their own Airfields.

This is a cool streetview of Saint Pierre city street near sea, as you can see, a lot frech flags, and while there some numbers of american cars, more cars are actually european, paticulary obviously french. Numberplates is Frecnh standart, but I see some north-american sized plates on some cars.

Suppose you're a member of the secret cabal of major bankers and old royalty owning 99% of property on the planet and you're tasked with saving planet from the multiple threats its facing - from possible asteroids falling on it to resource depletion required to sustain the billions which exist on the planet, from ocean acidification and ecological collapse of marine biosphere to the discontent of the populace withing all the different countries which is threatening to turn into a bunch of civil wars and possibly even in World War 3.

How would you go about it? Preventing wars and asteroids requires you to develop industry to produce goods and develop required technologies but it runs contrary to slowing down resource depletion and reducing ecological footprint of industry to prevent climate change.
No. 21469
You mean all of the above?

Well first of all, I'd be running contrary to the interests of those trust fund bitches so they'd immediately smear me as some Soros type where every knuckledragging mouth breather would hate me. Luckily I already hate most of the anyway and doubt that would change being the elite of elites except maybe I'd be far enough removed to pity them, and truly come to personally know hate for other oligarchs.

Asteroid deflection is not industry intensive. It's also, like a terrorist attack, an unlikely but very emotionally horrific type of a thing so even working on my own I could emotionally manipulate the public into supporting my efforts regardless, and branding as state enemies all who oppose it while sinking the costs into national defense budgets. And if I hear too much shit from anyone about not spending enough money on useless military shit we don't need and instead having the money specifically allocated to asteroid defense their nanny is going to find them dismembered and locked in their own luggage. If it's an existential threat I have no patience for fools and assholes and absolutely will go full-NWO. I'd have a jet liner crashed into their houses if I had to. You can pretend to care about deep concerns of others and humor imbeciles when it's not important or during peacetime. During an existential threat you sink the French fleet with French sailors on board if you have to and let them cry about it after we stopped the Reich.

Another area to cut down on is packaging. Some strides have been made here. Like you probably haven't even noticed the plastic twist off caps you use for all kinds of beverages like milk, soda, juice, coffee creamer and so on is now thinner, shorter, and uses less overall mass. Always appeal first to a man's greed, never his morality, and when you must appeal to his vacant morality do so in such a way that he feels socially judged for it. In the simple case of these plastic caps it can cost less money to produce the smaller cap and you can pass that on through the supply chain to encourage its adoption. Sorry fat people, I don't care if your fat greasy fingers can't grip the cap as easily. Do what you dont do in losing weight and actually put some personal effort in.

Portion size can also be controlled. In context of this thread I'm no longer mad about it because what happened during the 2008-09 recession was companies simply sold food in smaller containers without telling anyone rather than raising the prices. Oddly enough no one bitched about it. It was baffling. It was like somehow people were too fucking stupid even to notice that a jar of pesto or tub of ice cream was smaller than before but cost the same amount of money. So that is yet another tactic that can be employed, and even if you have to shake that slimy filthy disgusting hand of another person to pass it you can yet again appeal to man's greed and get them on board with selling smaller and smaller portions. In fact spraying cities with appetite suppressants or lacing their drinking water with it instead of fluoride would be a fantastic sounding idea, but we don't need to and it would have unintended consequences anyway. Just sell less food. Push fashions for smaller...whoa you know what o just realized? Skinny jeans are still the fashion. It uses less resources to make and accentuates whether a person is a disgusting fat fuck. Now frankly if you go to any city you will immediately notice how everyone's pants makes them look like complete faggots, but you can get people to wear all kinds of ridiculous looking nonsense especially if you get enough celebrities on board. Have a few musicians and actors wearing this silly shit and spouting off the party line. Get them to wear your faggot jeans so it becomes hip. If I'm the international banker I literally pay their salaries through owning and giving loans to the big movie and music studios.

Obviously a lot of tactics are being deployed right now, some better than others, and overall a lot less cynical seeming than I probably am but getting a bunch of children to protest against climate change and environmental catastrophe also works.

I can go on and on about this but again the real problem is going to be me dealing with the other oligarchs in your scenario, and how much I can get them on board. It is also frequently the case that no matter how bad the king, his immediate underlings and the toadies of the Court are often infinitely worse.

You are gifted by God and become the monarch of the country. While you are intially successful something comes up and the only way you can get yourself out of the situation is to successfully invade Russia and conquer its territories. How would you go about invading Russia and how would you do it throughout the entire campaign. Is it even possible?

It does not make much sense without cutting off nuclear weaponry which could balance out ousted areas by way of launching off from far far away.
Apart from that, you would gain little to no territorial advantage from the peripheral regions as they contain a small fraction of strategic resources for a long-term shooting war aimed at a conquest.
This is the first.

Secondly, one cannot dismiss the fact forces opposed to violence most likely would show up
making it a difficult job to take control of the objective in addition to long-distance firing up I mentioned before. When chances are rounded to almost zero, there tends to be a "mission" like Crimea or the Golan Heights. Otherwise, you would have to actively suppress it by means of gunning to an extent of bombarding and bombing which is undoubtedly ineffective in terms of acquiring something. That's why propoganda whose main purpose is to demonize your fellow neighbor is heavily around in a lot of countries. It's also a variable to nix the positive outcome of such actions, a sort of armory as well.

Economic-wise, there is a large impulse to speeding up your economics which goes by the name of oil. Everything ranging from means of production to an end-product is transported via oil burning. This means it's a huge increase in time if you have more than enough oil. Respectively, it's a huge decline if you have it deficiently. Therefore, there is a huge demand for oil in each functioning economy. Hence, it's a good way to establish your dominance and control by supplying oil to somebody.

It is. Current big sales of some movies and commercial success don't make it real success on cultural field. And current trends goes that holywood, at least outside USA more and more associating with anti-culture. Therm is kind of incorrect, but I don't want to to spend too much time on this topic.
>This is true but people are stupid. You will notice how most people in the world at least are aware what those movies are. The Russian films, not so much.
Western cultural impact worked on USSR because combination of forced isolation, which at the end of USSR become less and less quality isolation, since "glasnost'" more and more foreign stuff become allowed, combined with socialistic goverment capitalism monopoly economy that can't manage to produce any valuable goods, and when wester mass culture was overall better than today - yes, this worked as one of the factors of fall of USSR. Nowdays - when almost all people, or at least absolute majority have acces to internet, all movies allowed, nobody really cares that much about western media production. All people aware of it, but nobody consider this as some sort of guide to action. We have very terrible, but capitalism too, and while we still poor, trade centers, supermarts, malls give more than requred kind of cheap goods that people can afford more or less, espessialu crap from china, same as everyone can afford infinity ammount of video games and movies from internet because there not much dumb people who will pay for something they can get for free. And in the end, this don't play role anymore. Espessialy when absolute majority of top-holywood movies are films for childrend and teenager audience with caricature superheroes that has no connections to reality.
