Mark Leckey’s film Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore (1999) strings together altered video footage from dance clubs with an amalgamation of sounds to reveal the poignant socio-economic aspirations of counterculture nightlife. John Bock’s Dandy (2006) is a surrealistic drama about a fictional 19th-century inventor’s relationships with his servant and his own tortured genius. Written, directed, and edited by Ryan Trecartin, I-Be Area (2007) is a feature-length promenade through a hallucinogenic world where the artist plays an array of characters exploring their personalities—as they or others perceive them—to comment on the vagaries of contemporary culture. Camille Henrot’s film Grosse Fatigue (2013) ambitiously sets out to tell the story of the creation of the universe, using images of diverse natural and anthropological objects culled from the collection of the Smithsonian Institution.
