THE PRICE OF SERENITY

TRT: 98 min

Films:

Greetings from Bonita

Dir. Caitlin Ryan 2022

USA 5 min

Celebrity, family, death, and bugs. This film is somewhere between a postcard and stream of consciousness.

71

Dir. Paige Taul 2022

USA 19 min

71 is about the sensibilities of the black middle class as observed by Jessica Taul and Pamela Patterson, the filmmaker's mother and aunt, respectively. They discuss their differing tastes, definitions of class, frogs, and other qualifiers they consider in their evaluation of the space that they live in: a suburban-like outcropping of identical housing units.

Silent Clinking

Dir. Ayesha Bashir 2022

Pakistan / USA 3 min

This personal doc reconstructs memory through cultural memorabilia and explores the role of objects in fostering nostalgia. It also investigates the reliability of memory as a form of remembrance, as the protagonist fails to remember her first memory. This film is left intentionally unsubtitled as I wanted my non-Urdu/Hindi-speaking audience to understand the piece emotionally and visually, and I believe that the sentiments conveyed are not difficult to decipher.

Jan en To

Dir. Lili Dekker 2019

USA 33 min

An observational documentary about my grandparents as they experience Alzheimer’s within their private home. Filmed on a consumer camcorder during one of my summer visits to The Netherlands, “Jan en To” shows the resilience of their love as they navigate the patient and demanding acts of caregiving and -receiving.

s There A Pine On The Mountain

Dir. Chongyan Liu 2022

China / France 38 min

Filmmaker Chongyan Liu documents a time when the mother of her abusive ex-partner came to stay in their Parisian apartment.
