MARCIAL’S VERSION juxtaposes reality with illusion, in a manner reminiscent of the ‘Film Noir’ style of the 40’s. Filmed in the underbelly of Buenos Aires, the film plunges the viewer in the murky investigation of a crime where love, money and betrayal are all intricately woven together. With seductive strains of Tango in the background, the viewer is jarred by the counterpoint between Marcial's discourse - his version of the events as told to the police - versus the truth on the screen.

A dog, a Tesla machine, two physics students, and an unexpected turn into another dimension.
notdef., that could mean not deaf or, who knows, not defined. The monotonous thump of a percussively contoured, slightly delayed techno bass line underlies the images which, abstract and mutating constantly defy quick definition. In notdef./version one, virtual objects vigorously grow across a plane and into space from the center of the image for slightly longer than three minutes; nervously assembling and then falling away from one another, they overlap in glaringly bright colors before sinking back into the black matrix.

Water Margin (Kids Version)
2004: The Stupid Version is a satirical documentary written by Armando Iannucci, broadcast in two parts on BBC Three on New Year's Eve 2004. The one-off programme is a parody of review programmes typically broadcast at New Year. It features edited footage from news and television series, as well as satires on the politics and fads of a year in which "only Andrew Marr kept his dignity". The documentary was shown again on BBC Two on 29 January 2005, but has not been repeated since or released on DVD, although clips are available on the internet. Iannucci's 2006 series Time Trumpet follows a similar format to The Stupid Version, reviewing events satirically from a future perspective.

Water Margin (Kids Version)
The cover version has always been a staple of the pop charts. Yet it's often been viewed as the poor relation of writing your own songs. This film challenges and overturns that misconception by celebrating an exciting, underrated musical form that has the power to make or break an artist's career. Whether as tribute, reinterpretation or as an act of subversion, the extraordinary alchemy involved in covering a record can create a new, defining version - in some cases, even more original than the original.
