Director Lorenzo Fonda’s passion for artist Blu’s work was the initial spark for this project.

Crossing Mexico, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Costa Rica and Argentina with just the aid of some guides and a few contacts with friends and local artists the film becomes an examination of improvisation, inspiration, innovation, self-exploration and “all the other good things in life that end with –ion”.

BIG IDEAS (DON'T GET ANY)
By James Houston
Based on the lyric (and alternate title) "Big Ideas: Don't get any" by Radiohead, James grouped together a collection of old redundant hardware, and placed them in a situation where they're trying their best to do something that they're not exactly designed to do, and not quite getting there. The result is an eerie electronic version of the track.
James Houston graduated from the Glasgow School of Art. He is a freelane video and graphic designer based in Glasgow, UK.
