Matereality


In this mesmerizing new short film, German filmmaker Roman De Giuli worked with magnets, iron filings, reflective pigment, and glitter to create this pulsing visual montage of magnetic special effects titled Matereality. It’s amazing to think this was all done with practical effects and not CGI.

26 years have passed since the fall of Vukovar.


On 18 November 1991, Siniša Glavašević sent in his last report, which ended with:

 "The picture of Vukovar at the 22nd hour of the 87th day [of the siege] will remain forever in the memory of the witnesses of this time. There are infinite spooky sights, and you can smell the burning. We walk over bodies, building material, glass, detritus and the gruesome silence. ...
We hope that the torments of Vukovar are over."

Trump Warns That Dumping Roy Moore Could Start Dangerous Trend of Believing Women.

Breaking his silence on Alabama’s embattled Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate, Donald Trump warned on Wednesday that dumping Roy Moore could start a “dangerous trend” of believing women. “I think we need to be very, very careful here,” Trump told reporters.
 “This is not just about Roy Moore. This is about our country deciding that we are going to start believing women, something that we have never done before. “This is a very dangerous road we’re heading down,” he said. Trump cautioned that, if instituted, a new practice of believing women would “totally destroy” the system that the country already has in place. “For years we’ve had a system of believing men,” he said.
 “It’s worked very well. It’s done a great job.” He said that he was considering a number of measures to stem the tide of women’s credibility, including an executive order banning women from giving believable accounts to the press. “That’s something we’re looking into,” he indicated.
 Trump painted a doomsday scenario of what might happen if the “very bad trend” of believing women gained traction in the country. “If people believe Roy Moore’s five accusers, what happens to a man who has, say, about twenty accusers?” he asked. “I don’t like where this is going.”
