*director Q&A with Danny Perez

A visual album created by Danny Perez and Animal Collective which first debuted at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival, later appearing at the Guggenheim Museum and Pompidou Center in Paris. 13 songs are paired with mesmerizing visuals full of terror and fantasy. Maximum visual impact is achieved through compositions featuring dense forests where demons wash ostrich eggs in a creek to sticky black on black compositions made from tar and oil. And then there are the flames which lick the screen and create the sensation of purgatory. Each great band has delivered a concept album such as Pink Floyd's "The Wall" and The Who's "Tommy,"  and this work is a major milestone for indie rock gods, Animal Collective.

SHORTS 2: DUCKS, SLUGS AND FORESTS
The trees! The ducks! The slugs! We don’t know why we got these movies about the deep, dark forest, but we did! And they’re pretty damn cool. They have everything from the Dutch philosopher Beneducktus di Spinoza to the funniest Spanish short film we’ve ever received.

"One of the funniest films I’ve seen in years!"" Documentary filmmaker Michael Moore

One of the very first viral videos of all time, passed by one person to the next via VHS tape chronicling the travails of an RV salesman as he tries to complete a day of filming.  Jack Rebney’s  schizophrenic cursing and dramatic flare-ups have earned him the nickname “The Angriest Man in the World.” His exploits gained new life during the internet era 10 years later as YouTube made him a household name with more than 20 million views, ranking as we seek out the real Jack, a real honest to goodness inspiration beneath his gruff exterior and crude ways.

VIDEO MINDFUCK PARTY

This year, Urban Nomad’s gonna kick an oldschool warehouse party with a freak-out psychedelic band from Brooklyn called I.U.D., huge visuals from 4 high-powered projectors by video artist Danny Perez, and add in a bunch of our favorite local bands and DJs. This will count as both a serious art happening and the funnest, weirdest party we’ve ever had.

DANNY PEREZ
The collaboration between Animal Collective and visual artist Danny Perez came pretty naturally, as Perez had already directed a number of music videos and for other experimental bands such as Black Dice and Animal Collective member, Panda Bear. Danny embodies the same DIY spirit and has created a unique visual look that mixes lo-fi techniques with new technology. Since the release of “Oddsac,”he’s continued working with Animal Collective to produce live installations in some of the world’s top museums for modern art, including the Guggenheim Museum in New York and the Georges Pompidou Center in Paris. For Urban Nomad, we’re giving Danny four high power projectors and an empty warehouse. He chose the New York art-rock band I.U.D. to create the music for this performance.

I.U.D.
I.U.D. is a tribal-freakout band from Brooklyn, NY that features Lizzi Bougatsos of the highly popular musical group Gang Gang Dance and Sadie Laska of the band Growing. Both play drums, and they also bring in all kinds of electronic beats, melodies and samples while Lizzi wails out crazy, incomprehensible siren shrieks and melodies. Their sound is a mix of low-fi art rock, industrial noise and no-wave funk, and the music has been compared to bands like the Boredoms, Front 242 and the freakout jams of the Butthole Surfers. Even though Lizzi is famous in the world of indie rock and has played Fuji Rock, Coachella and lots of big European music festivals, I.U.D. is a relatively new band and reputed to represent Lizzi's wilder side. This will be the first time they ever play in Asia, so Taipei gets to see them first!

AI WEIWEI FOCUS
Ai Weiwei (艾未未) is one of the biggest stars of Chinese contemporary art, famous for smashing a 2000 year old Chinese vase and helping to design Beijing’s famous “bird’s nest” Olympic Stadium. He is currently exhibiting at London’s Tate Modern, has seen major retrospectives of his work over the last two years in Tokyo and Germany, and later this year, he will have a major retrospective at the Taipei Museum of Fine Art. But Ai is also one of China’s most famous social activists, and his Beijing studio is currently under 24-hour surveillance by China’s National Security Bureau. Ai’s activism began with his documentation of the names of children who died in the 2008 Sichuan earthquake, and in 2009, he was severely beaten by Chinese police. This attack was widely covered in the international media, and it came as Ai was about to testify at the trial of activist Tan Zuoren (譚作人), who was also collecting information on the children’s deaths. Urban Nomad will show two films about this incident in an attempt to bring more attention to the social dimension of Ai’s work.

WHY ARE THESE FLOWERS RED?
花兒為什麼這樣紅 / Ai Xiaomin / 2010 / China / 77min / Ch 中

Ai Xiaomin is an activist, documentary director and professor at Guangzhou’s Sun Yat-sen University. This documentary is a remarkable record of the beating given Ai Weiwei, one of China’s most famous artists and a people’s activist, on a fateful trip to Sichuan Province where he tried to testify at a fellow activist’s trial.

IN A DREAM
Jeremiah Zagar / 2008/ US/ En/Ch

Winner of audience choice awards at the SXSW and San Francisco Documentary film festivals, and winner of jury awards at Woodstock and Philadelphia film fests, In a Dream is a documentary about the zany folk artist Isaiah Zagar, who over the past four decades has covered more than 50,000 square feet of Philadelphia with stunning mosaic murals. This is also the story of his life and family, following him from the hippie days of the 1960s through bouts of insanity and a tumultuous family life into the 2000s. It asks the question what does it mean to be an artist? And how should art relate to life? The soundtrack features music by The Books, Explosions in the Sky, Efterklang and Bibio.

SHORTS 5: ART VS. LIFE
One day the rich people of the world will buy up former artist’s studios and turn into poseur hipsters living in castles in the sky. Oh right, that already happened. Here are some movies about that, as well as kids being raised by kids, and also some other things.

Through this documentary, we explore the world of this influential artist during the years 2004-2009, following him to Arctic glaciers and other extreme environments as he attempts to understand our unique planet. His work may just change the way you see the world we live in.

SHORTS 6: LET'S GET BLURRY

This documentary traces the development and enduring charm of the typeface, Helvetica. But this is not just a film about the world's most pervasive font - you'll probably see it next time a door tells you to "push" - it's about the last hundred years of graphic design. Filmmaker Gary Hustwit shows Helvetica's impact on international design, advertising, and communication, chasing down the world's top graphic designers in the US, Britain, the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, France, Belgium and everywhere else, and displaying their love-hate relationship with this landmark of graphic design.

SPRING SCREAM NIGHT!

SHORTS 7: LIKE FIVE CUPS OF COFFEE
How do you get ready for a movie about a rock festival? We’ve got a film by Chinese rocker Peng Lei, our annual nutty lao-wai movie, and plenty of other films that will give you that queasy caffeine overdose feeling. There will also be a special SPRING SCREAM mystery segment in here somewhere.

ROSKILDE
Ulrik Wivel / 2008 / Denmark / 99min / Dan/En/Ch

Northern Europe's largest rock music festival has run continuously for 40 years as an orgy of mud, alcohol, drugs, sex, and music! It’s everyone for themselves in this chaotic, volunteer-run festival. But knowing this was a festival doc, we were of course suspicious. We were however relieved to find this is not chop-edited concert footage. There's a real story in here both about the concert's historical development and social function of mass, rock'n'roll-fueled catharsis. Filmed over eight years, Roskilde (the film) captures both everything from weirdos and anarchists to incredible performances by Sonic Youth, Mew, Placebo, Franz Ferdinand, The Streets, Rufus and Martha Wainwright, and the Editors.

SHORTS 8: I LOVE SPACECAKE

BEAUTIFUL LOSERS
Aaron Rose / 2008 / US / 90min / En/Ch

A documentary film chronicling the rise of a New York studio that birthed artists from wide range of sectors such as street art, skateboarding, and independent music. Many had no formal arts training nor any aspiration for doing gallery shows, yet somehow, through mutual inspiration and cultural zeitgeist, they quickly caught the eye of both collectors and the general public. Artists featured in this film include Shepard Fairey, the grafitti artist who produced the iconic red, white and blue portrait of US President Barack Obama, and skateboard legends Mark Gonzales and Ed Templeton, along with directors Spike Jonze and Harmony Korine, and graffiti artist Twist (Barry McGee).  A fascinating look into the rapid transition of outsider art being accepted by the mainstream.

Once a decade a great skateboarding film comes out, and this stunning visual masterpiece follows the tale of young Walter, who dreams of becoming a skateboarding pro and joining the prestigious Macho Taildrop company. After sending in his gold plated demo tape, he is invited to join this elite fraternity of pros such as his idol Blair Stanley (Rick McCrank). Later, Walter is subject to cruel competition and training, later learning the dark intentions of the company as they play to acquire a dilapidated amusement park that is home to the renegade Man Wolves whose intention is to keep skateboarding pure. A wild romp of a film, and one with a local touch as many scenes were inspired by the director’s brief work and residence in the Hsinchu area.

VOICES IN THE CLOUDS
Aaron Hose / 2010 / US / 77min / En/Ch
*Q&A with documentary subject Tony Coolidge

This film has already proven a favorite at indigenous film festivals across the US. It tells the story of Tony Coolidge, who was born in the US, the son of Taiwanese woman and an American GI father he never met. He grew up thinking his mother was Taiwanese, but following her untimely death, he returned to Taiwan to discover that his “Taiwanese” family members are in fact aboriginals of the Atayal tribe. The film is both a personal journey of discovery and an ethnographic document, which interviews 100-year-old village elders who still bare facial tattoos of ancient times. It is also one of the first Western documentaries to take a deep look at Taiwan’s aboriginal cultures and peoples.
