The Times will debut a four-part documentary series about residential highrise buildings at the New York Film Festival on Sept. 30 in partnership with the National Film Board of Canada, and then publish it on the Times' website in October. Rather than simply throw up some videos, the Times has designed the series to be interactive with an eye specifically to the tablet experience.
Kat Cizek's latest project from NFB Canada. Part of the Highrise series and designed for optimum viewing on the iPad. A series of short films which can be paused and drilled into for more information. Makes good use of sound as a bridge between the different forms of engagement.
Loved this movie: Waste Land- a great social documentary "A social documentary based around the lives of garbage pickers in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil as a man by the name of Vik Muniz creates art out of recycled material. The film starts with an introduction into Vik Muniz's career as an artist and how he is reveled as "one of the greatest [artists] of our generation"; swiftly leading into his desire to change the lives of the catadores, only to discover that he would become the changed.'
