Due to one of the worst droughts on record, California’s Central Valley is becoming a dustbowl and leaving its inhabitants and workers with an uncertain future. This terrifically shot film by Matt Black tells the story.
In The Search For BLDG.40, Rob Miceli skates through an abandoned psychiatric center (not on a Psycho Stick, tho) in New York state while Sean Colello does the filming. A+ for creative use of a bowling alley.

!!RENEGADE!! by Michael Cavanaugh
‘SLIMZEE’S GOING ON TERRIBLE’ is Rollo Jackson’s beautifully directed portrait documentary of DJ Slimzee, the self-proclaimed Godfather of Grime. A+ on this one.
Future Relic 02, the second chapter of Daniel Arsham’s Future Relic series. Starring James Franco.
Drone Boning, the first—and most artistically shot—soft porn recorded from above. It’s like a game of ‘Where’s Dildo?’ at times. Watch and enjoy.
DANIELS pushes the boundaries of weird in their longest short film to date.
87 BOUNCES, a short film by HOTU
I was a Skate Rat
“a brief meditation on the nature of how suburban nomadic skateboarders find each other, build communities – and as is often the case in adversarial environments – use every inch of their limitations and blank canvas, to breed ideas that influence the life of skateboarders every day. From the kick flip, to the kick tail, Floridians are responsible for scores of technical and cultural advancements – and they are all skate rats.”
Richard Mosse (of infrared photography fame) directed this short “Death Is Elsewhere” on the USS Theodore Roosevelt. Featuring the X-47B drone in maneuvers on the aircraft carrier, it’s an up close look at the beautiful design of one of the pilotless killers.
