JAMES FRANCO - DREAM

Author, actor, film maker - Franco has a myriad of achievements to boast of, including being the first Dazed Visionary. His short 'Dream' is a snapshot of the uncanny - a world in which the familiar intertwines with the absurd.  

BRANDY & COKE

Garage photographer and author Ewen Spencer meditates on the rise and fall of the UKG scene in this Doc X.

MATT LAMBERT - HEILE GANSJE

This collaboration between Dazed and Channel 4 is a raw depiction of the pains and promiscuity experienced by a group of Berlin youths. The film commands accolade for its nuanced sound editing.  

MY FAVOURITE PICTURE OF YOU

This contribution comes from Oscar winning documentary team Martin & Lindsay. An elderly couple use old photographs and home videos as a portal into their past. 

YOUNG TURKS #3: FKA TWIGS - HIDE

This film came to Dazed as part of pioneering record label Young Turks takeover week. In the ruins of a Mayan Village at the Young Turks NYE party singer FKA Twigs performs "Hide", a hypnotic track from her critically-acclaimed EP.

BECKY & JOE - DON'T HUG ME I'M SCARED II: TIME

Sesame Street's deranged sibling was born from the imaginative womb of Sundance award winning pair Becky & Joe. This musical film about how to tell the time is less jovial than it sounds.

ALLSAINTS NEW MUSIC CITIES: SOUTH LONDON

"If I could duplicate the sounds of south London it would sound like Irish music, on top of Nigerian music, on top of reggae, on top of gospel, cars with two loud sound systems going past, people talking in Urdu, cockney, everything going off at the same time." The New Music Cities documentary series explores the urban landscape through music. Roots Manuva, Mount Kimbie and Kwes all feature in the South London edition of Dazed's partnership with AllSaints. 

BOYCHILD

An experimental piece of performance from Boychild, whose work dissolves the boundaries of gender. This film is directed by Luke Gilford and set to new music by Physical therapy.

DICK JEWELL - MOVING PICTURES

James Roberts burrows through the archives of dance documentarian Dick Jewell. Footage features Vivienne Westwood, Neneh Cherry and Boy George.  

ISLE SKATEBOARDS - TOGETHER APART

Isle Skateboards is a skate/art collective created by Nick Jensen and Paul Shier. Jensen tells Dazed "Isle’s main film, Together/Apart, strips back the workings of a studio shoot, exposing an interplay between skateboarding and representation."

WARP X TATE: RAVE

Rollo Jackson and Dustie present the incongruous beauty to be found in a slow-mo Morris dancing rave at the Tate.

ORIFICE CONDITIONING PLATE 

Directed and scored by South African Mitch Stratten, this conceptual film creates an alternative universe inside the dead space of a white classroom. Stratten's inspirations for the film included the mining town in South Africa in which he grew up and his skateboarding friends.
