We decided it was about time for somebody to make a website dedicated to experimental, documentary and short films. In our age of serialized content, reboots of reboots, relentless marketing and the manufacture of genius on a daily basis, we wanted to do something simple: discuss the movies we were surprised by. We champion the voices that get drowned out, the formats that don’t fit into the corporate entertainment matrix, and the people dedicated to keeping the seventh art lively and diverse.
