Skhizein - short film by Jeremy Clapin Having been struck by a 150-ton meteorite, Henry has to adapt to living precisely ninety-one centimeters from himself. An animated short that runs for only 13 minutes, this tells the rather comical and yet sad story of a man affected by a meteorite in a most peculiar way. Once he has been struck he finds that his body is now constantly 91 centimetres from where it should be. To open a door, sit down, answer his telephone, etc, he has to perform all of the actions exactly 91 centimetres away from where he normally would, laws of physics having taken a long walk off a short pier.

AD Classics: Mivtachim Sanitarium / Jacob Rechter The Mivtachim sanitarium in Zichron Ya’akov is a brutalist masterpiece set on the forested slopes of Mount Carmel, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. The simple yet complex design of the serpentine-shaped modular structure makes it appear to be “crowning” the mountain. The building was designed by the Israeli architect Jacob Rechter in 1968 and immediately gained world-wide recognition, appearing in numerous international magazines and earning Rechter the prestigious Israel Award for architecture in 1973. Along with other brutalist icons, the Mivtachim Sanitarium was an idealistic, utopian structure, encapsulating the socialist ideas prevalent in 1960's Israel. The 7,750 square meter structure was constructed of exposed concrete and contained two major sections: the guest rooms to the front, sharing the panoramic vista of the Mediterranean Sea, and the service and entrance hall in the back, which lead to the town of Zichron Ya’akov.
