Rubber Johnny (by Chris Cunningham & Aphex Twin)

The concept for Rubber Johnny came from Cunningham's imagining a raver morphing as he danced. The idea evolved to the present film, in which Johnny (played by Cunningham) is an isolated deformed (possibly hydrocephalic) teenager kept on a wheelchair and locked in a dark basement with his chihuahua. The film was originally intended to be a 30-second TV commercial for the Aphex Twin album drukqs, using the track "afx237 v7". However, Cunningham grew to like the concept more and more and decided to expand the concept into a greater length (the original commercial remains in the film in an altered form.) The film was shot partially in infrared night vision on digital video. The film's music is "afx237 v7 (w19rhbasement remix)", a remix made by Cunningham; the credits music is "gwarek2", also from drukqs.

Somebody (by Miranda July) - Miu Miu Womens' Tales #8

Have you ever found it impossible to say something, face to face, to someone you know, someone you love? The words just won't come out? A new messaging service, SOMEBODY, by Miranda July could help. It's the star of her film for Miu Miu Womens' Tales, the eighth commission in the acclaimed short-film series by women directors who critically celebrate femininity in the 21st century.

This latest addition to Womens' Tales showcases Miranda July's unique ability to capture the strange tenderness of contemporary relationships.

SOMEBODY takes our endless hunger for communication, technology, avatars and outsourcing, and blends it into what seems to be a surreal near-future — but it's not. It's right now. In close collaboration with Miu Miu, July worked with a team of developers to create this radical and complex app; when the movie ends we're invited to visit somebodyapp.com to send or deliver our first message.
