Dir. Juliette Joffé 2021

Belgium 45 min

Guided by a sentence from my childhood, I encounter three people in Paris: A collector of lost objects, a princess in Disneyland and a coffee seller forever rooted in her shop to the point of madness. The first person narrative echoes the stories of the filmed, questioning the possibilities of the documentary encounter. In the process the assumed distinctions between director/character ; self/other; stranger/friend are challenged and questioned. A meditation on longing, dreaming and belonging.


Dir. Aaron Zeghers, Lewis Bennett 2018

Canada 60 min

After being diagnosed with leukemia in 1993, Danny Ryder picks up a camcorder and begins to create a film, with himself as the central character. The lo-fi Vancouver cityscape reflects an alienated existence as Danny grapples with his personal demons, spurred on in the face of his own mortality.
