The Philips Parallel Lines: Tell It Your Way film contest invited people to make a short film, no longer than three minutes, that contained these lines as its dialogue:

What’s that?
It’s a unicorn
Never seen one up close before
… Beautiful
Get away, get away
I’m sorry. 

The winner, as judged by acclaimed directory Ridley Scott, was Porcelain Unicorn. Watch this tale of innocence found and shattered during World War II.

Your muscles have a certain memory about them. That’s why we can tie our shoes or play piano without looking. But then you spend a long enough time with someone, and your bodies memorise each other, you know? The warmth of your back, the pace of your heartbeat, your tickly eyelashes, the way your fingers would curl in sequence when I used to play with your palm.

UNDERCITY is a brilliant thirty-minute documentary directed and shot by by Andrew Wonder. With urban explorer Steve Duncan, he traverses the subway tunnels and sewers of New York City and climbs to the top of the Williamsberg Bridge.

Shot on a Canon 5D Mark II, UNDERCITY is a breath-taking look into what’s under the surface of the cities that we live in and take for granted. Wonder and Duncan take us on a exhilarating ride, showing us how the most amazing things could be right at our doorstep, if only we looked at them differently.
