Video-art is completely charming! You can get lost in stories of a dancing Obama in a sunny square, just in front of the "Queen Sofia" Museum in Madrid, video-opera by Martin Sastre.

Omer Fast, Israeli artist, enchants with breathtaking footage from a helicopter, a prelude to the same story, developed by changing internal parts every time. The list could continue!
