SHORT CUTS VII: SPACE TIME BEING

DIRECTOR: Various - SHORT CUTS

Parallel universes, bi-location, autohypnosis, alternate dimensions, and past lives: this program of new experimental films, programmed and introduced by Cinema Project, follows the idea that mental movement between imagined, physical, or psychological spaces is also at the core of the cinematic experience.

Total running time: 94 mins.



Interests: Shorts.


A DISTANT EPISODE

DIRECTOR: Ben Rivers - (United Kingdom)

A meditation on the illusion of filmmaking, shot behind-the-scenes on a film being made on the otherworldly beaches of Sidi Ifni, Morocco. (18 mins.)


BUNTE KUH

DIRECTOR: Ryan Ferko, Parastoo Anoushahpour, Faraz Anoushapour - (Canada, Germany)

Through a flood of images and impressions, and weaving together the temporal realities of two separate vacations, a narrator attempts to recall a family holiday. (6 mins.)


CINEMA CONCRET

DIRECTOR: Makino Takashi - (Japan)

Inspired by the techniques of musique concrète, Takashi forms abstract images made from concrete ones visualized as a shimmering portal of gradually changing colors. (25 mins.)


DEEP SLEEP

DEEP SLEEP

DIRECTOR: Basma Alsharif - (Greece, Malta, Palestine)

A hypnosis-inducing, pan-geographic shuttle built on brainwave-generating binaural beats that take us on a journey through the sound waves of Gaza to travel between different sights of modern ruin. (13 mins.)


MAD LADDERS

DIRECTOR: Michael Robinson - (United States)

Heavily processed video footage from 1980s and early 1990s awards ceremonies are blended beneath the prophetic ramblings of an unseen narrator. (10 mins.)


TOWARDS THE POSSIBLE FILM

DIRECTOR: Shezad Dawood - (Morocco, United Kingdom)

A study in parallel universes set as a hazy golden dream in which blue-skinned astronauts emerge from the ocean waves on the beaches of Sidi Ifni, Morocco. (20 mins.)
