Animals Are Beautiful People (All 9 Parts)

16 04 2010

“This South African film tells about life in these areas in a humorous way. It was directed and written by Jamie Uys, who is most famous for his later film The Gods Must Be Crazy.

The film begins in the Namib desert, with the narrator saying: ‘You’d think nobody could make a living here.’ But the film proves the opposite and shows the lives of the animals that live there. The narrator concludes: ‘But to the Oryx and the little creatures of the Namib, this waterless, hostile desert is paradise.’ “

This is Karma

“THEME: This is a documentary about the philosophy of karma. I am into eastern philosophy which I find to have a lot of truth in it. I wanted to make a film that conveys the idea that we are all basically the same. And I also wanted to make an informative film about what karma really is in case people are interested.

FORM: I wanted to experiment with fusing the documentary genre with the music video genre. I also wanted to make a film that in form reflected indian society in all its colour, chaos and diversity. Indian traditional ideas and beliefs, indian classical music remixed and edited through western eyes to hopefully suit a western audience.
