This weekend we've got a Spike Lee celebration of New York, another short film refuting a view that there are 'no-go zones' in Paris, a short fiction film that is high on tension, a beautiful motion graphics piece based upon the writings of David Eagleman, and a funny video that promotes a non-violent life.
