A three-dimensional documentary by Andrew Dominik, One More Time with Feeling, embodies a loss of a musician Nick Cave, who lost his son from an accident, transforming into music with the use of amazing audiovisual tools. El Mar La Mar is an essay film drawing lives of people living in the desert with the audiovisual tools such as 16 milimeter camera and contrapuntal sound. LI Hongqi's Hooly Bible II delineates a realm of dark insensibility in Chinese
society with the distance created by a carefree use of the camera.
