ROYGBIV (before the end, the lights shine bright)
Dir. Rebecca Shapass 2022
USA 16 min
A meditative portrait of blue hour & the urban constructions that frame it. The film observes modes of connective and enforced time-keeping through human-made infrastructures gridding the sky & ground such as street lights, trains, electrical cabling, and alleys. How do these human interventions create, harmonize with, and disrupt the rhythms of the earth’s rotation and the way living beings exist within it?
I'll Leave Tomorrow
Dir. Chen-Yi Wu 2021
Taiwan / USA 20 min
In the year of 2018, a twenty five year-old filmmaker briefly came back to Taipei, her hometown, during the summer break. During her visit, she found that the lives of her friends seemed to be moving forward, while she was stuck between two countries and two languages.
The Red Tide
Dir. Sally Lawton 2022
USA 8 min
The Red Tide follows my mother on a life changing move to Florida. Her new home is located near famous earthworks by Robert Smithson, the enormous art collection-turned-museum of John Ringling, and beaches plagued by a toxic phenomenon called the ‘red tide’.
Luci: The Girl with Three Hearts
Dir. Katina Bitsicas 2019
USA 8 min
Luci Cook is the recipient of three heart transplants at ages 11, 23, and 28. Luci has since graduated college and is pursuing their PhD. They have a fear of wasting time since they are not a candidate for a fourth heart transplant. This film is divided into three sections, one for each donor, and visually reflects the feeling and location of each heart.
Dir. Henrique Cartaxo 2021
Brazil 20 min
A personal encounter with Eshu, the afro-brazilian deity also known as Elegba, is reimagined with abstract visuals crafted from homemade footage, studies on the matter, carnival memories, and contemplations akin to quantum physics. Made in isolation during the covid-19 pandemic in Brazil.
