   NUEVA 2003

   The predecessor of "Nueva" which states a "futuristic" film
   festival is "RETinevitable" which started in New York in 1998.

   "New" in Spanish was held over about two weeks from
   December 10th to 25th in Harajuku Laforet Museum, Tokyo.


   Berlin is on the brink of bankruptcy. It can be felt in the uncut
   lawns of parks, the empty storefronts of small businesses,
   and now in the echoes of bustling crowds and chants that fill
   the streets of Berlin almost everyday. Students have begun to
   protest in response to the brash plans of government policies,
   which include budget cuts of 50 million euros in the years
   2004 and 2005 and 75 million euros by 2009, faculty members
   and course numbers eliminated by their hundreds, and no clear
   solutions for future developments - all topped off by the fact
   that, though Germany's flailing economy hasn't helped, Berlin's
   predicaments are a direct results of a government bank
   scandal that took place 9 years ago. But these protests have
   not just been about demonstrating and petitioning. Powered by
   the internet and mobile phones, students are arranging
   themselves in much more fluent ways than before, and the
   results have been creative, to say the least. 


   "Romance" is coming back to the world of fashion, graphic
   design and art. "Romantik" was released from Die Gestalten

   motifs of butterflies, flowers, curved lines, women and
   softeness abound. This art book has the scent of a classic but
