93 Minutes    

Interests: Short Cuts.


MY WHITE BABY

MY WHITE BABY

DIRECTOR: Akosua Adoma Owusu - (Ghana/United States)

“Owusu begins with a portrait of hairdressing salons in Accra, weaves in audio from Oprah Winfrey’s mission to distribute black dolls in Africa, and then transitions to her sister’s story of encountering white children for the first time after their family moved to the US.”—Ed Halter. (22 mins.)


ATLANTIQUES

DIRECTOR: Mati Diop - (Senegal/France)

Chronicling the odyssey of Senegalese friends who attempt a life-threatening boat crossing, this melancholic and mysterious film urgently addresses the perils of illegal migration. (15 mins.)


EVERYWHERE WAS THE SAME

DIRECTOR: Basma Al Sharif - (Palestine/United States)

Innocence lost, a city mired and mutilated. With slideshow images of abandoned homes and an apocalyptic tale inspired by a massacre in Gaza in 2006. (12 mins.)


LONG SHADOWS

DIRECTOR: Joshua Bonnetta - (Canada/United States)

Animating the frames of long-lost, decaying home movies of the 1950s in watercolor, Long Shadows re-constructs these moments and gestures into haunted sequences, dreaming back through the seasons of a childhood spent on a northern lake. (12 mins.)


MAMORI

MAMORI

DIRECTOR: Karl Lemieux - (Brazil/Canada)

Its title taken from a site in the Amazon Rainforest, Mamori captures the textures of tropical vegetation and its various transformations according to the phenomena of light. (8 mins.)


APRIL SNOW

DIRECTOR: Lewis Klahr - (United States)

“Another ‘couplet’ from my ongoing Prolix Satori series. I thought up the juxtapostion of these two pop songs while creating a mix-tape back in 1988 but never thought I’d work with them as a film soundtrack. Back then the taboo in experimental film circles about using music was so strong it seemed permanent.”—L.K. (10 mins.)


CRY WHEN IT HAPPENS

CRY WHEN IT HAPPENS

DIRECTOR: Laida Lertxundi - (Spain/United States)

An allegory wrapped in themes of discovery, longing and looking, and positive upward movement, with heavy-metal themes of molten transformation at its core. (14 mins.)
